Cancelled

It cost £25 for a taxi to the hospital at 6.00 a.m.  I was admitted to the ward and blood samples were taken at 7:00 a.m.  At 9:10 a.m.  I was leaving the hospital; operation cancelled due to lack of anaesthetist.  Before discharging me, the doctor had a word to explain why.  I was aware that I was quite angry and frustrated about this, but tried not to show it.  I was told that I would be rearranged for 5th October, and would have to have MRSA swabs before I left; I suspect that this was to make me feel like something had been done with me.

While walking out, I realised that I had no way of getting home; I had no money or credit card.  The hospital arranged (and paid) for me to get a taxi.

I had great difficulty focusing on work for the rest of the day.  I think I continued to get angrier as the day went on.
