Coconut Macaroon and blood

No I’m not suggesting that you mix the two things! eewww. I had my fortnightly appointment at Liverpool hospital and had my blood taken as usual on 10z Outpatients. The wait to have my bloods taken, isn’t very long at all and I’m usually out within about 20mins and yesterday was no exception. It was good to catch up with a few of the patients I hadn’t seen for a while. One of them being my fellow patient from Chester, Heather who had just come out of hospital after having her Stem Cell Transplant. She was her usual jolly self and looked well, but I’d be the first to admit that looking OK doesn’t necessarily been you are doing well, but she did assure me that she was OK and it’s good to know that her son was helping her at home during her recovery process. Hopefully I will see her again next time I’m there if our appointments cross again.

After having my bloods taken I went downstairs for my appointment with the Dr and unfortunately as usual I had to wait over an hour and half before being called in. I have to wait for the blood results to come back and like yesterday, sometimes they take ages. I was getting really bored and fed up of waiting, when another fellow patient and I’d like think a friend now Adam turned up, although he did look pretty tired as he’s having to visit the hospital three times a week for treatment for his liver. He told me he was going to get something to eat and would be back later and sure enough about 10 minutes later he came back, but not empty handed, as a very welcomed surprise to me, he bought some cakes, one of them being a coconut macaroon. As mentioned I’d been waiting ages to be seen, the cake was very much appreciated as I was getting pretty hungry.
