No, not to the world of blogging, but to my Surgeon. Today is 16 weeks since my Surgery and, I went for my 6 week check-up. I am glad their surgery was better than their administration! :) In fact, I did not even get to see the Surgeon as I was seen by one of his Registrars. As I only have met my Surgeon twice (technically 3 times but one of those I was somewhat anaesthetised. :) ), I did not mind one bit. It was nice to see the Registrar's familiar smile. He asked a lot of questions, checked the state of the scar, listened to my lungs and the valve. I was then sent for an ECG, after which I was discharged.
So, all being well that will be the last I see of that Surgical team. I still have an appointment with my Cardiologist next week but am hoping the same thing will happen; a quick turn-about appointment with no further follow-up necessary.
I like that sort of goodbye.
I was not so keen on the one the other day though. Last week we went on holiday to a quaint little cottage on the edge of Dartmoor. Dartmoor is a wonderful place to visit. I love being back home but really miss the rugged countryside that we drove past every day. I miss the sheep and ponies that decided a road was definitely a good place to sit down and rest. We had a lot of sunshine on our holiday; Dartmoor is exquisite in the sun. The drama of the place is seen during bad weather. I love Dartmoor and it is the only place that I would happily return for a rest.
Auf weidersehen, Dartmoor National Park. Until the next time.
