My Lebanese neighbors made a barbecue and it smelled delicious. They asked about Mr. G.'s state and when he would come out of hospital. I told them that he is still too weak and must have an infection because they did a lot of other analyses and the reeducation has to wait. Suddenly the Lady disappeared and came back with a plate of Lebanese food and said, "you are alone, here is your supper ! You have to be strong, have a nice meal !' Isn't that cute ? I was really touched.
Then the Teenagers put on Lebanese or Arabic music and we were delighted, we felt on Holidays in Egypt ! The sun was shining and it was warm, an absolutely nice afternoon !
When somebody is ill, you also get a lot of administration work. In my case as it was not me who had brought Mr. G. with the ambulance to the hospital, there were some errors and I was blessed with tons of invoices. I went to the health insurance and said that I have not won in the lottery and I am not the wife of a millionaire like Mrs. Trump. The employee smiled, looked at my papers and told me that I will get all the money that I had payed back in the next days and that I will not get other invoices anymore, they will handle it directly with the hospital. Good news, my mood raised !
To celebrate that, I went to the hairdresser because I thought I needed a new head !
We have a travel agency in Waterloo who does daily excursions. This time they proposed the Keukenhof in the Netherlands. As we had never seen these amazing Tulip fields, Nicole had booked for us and we met at the bus at 7.30 am !
It was a wonderful day ! While it rained and it was rather cool at home in Waterloo, there was sunshine and warm weather at least over the Keukenhof !
This is only a little bit of the Tulip fields and the flower beds, statues and houses, I will write more about it on Tuesday for "My World". We stayed there for 5 h and I am sure we haven't seen it all, but we were hungry and thirsty and there was a restaurant, so we had lunch there.
Before returning home, we stopped for an hour and a half in Scheveningen at the beach. After half an hour suddenly a terrible wind came up and it started to pour ! We all ran inside the restaurant with our glasses and waited that the rain stopped ! Then we just had the time to catch our bus home.
Next morning I had to get up early because the cleaning lady was there already at 7.30 h ! I met with four friends for an Asiatic meal and then drove the 20 km to Mr. G. to bring him a paper to sign and of course clean laundry. He was still feeling weak and we tried to walk along the corridor, he with the walker and I besides. But he only did a few steps and then we had to return as he got dizzy. Before he had been without the walker to the bathroom and the nurse was angry with him apparently he is not a very easy patient. I tried to explain and told him to be patient and do what they want him to do to heal quicker, but I got the impression to talk to Arthur the cat who never does what we want !
I stayed until 4.30 am and it took me more than an hour to come back the traffic had started. I was very tired when I came home. Tomorrow I have to talk to the Doctor again to know more about the results of all the analyses they have done !
Fortunately I have a lot of support from my friends and my little neighbor nurse who really mothers me ! Which for once I need !
