I was at Benenden Hospital for a 8.30am consultation. It is very swish with its new extensions. I am going to have laser treatment on a varicose vein. This sounds fantastic with just local anaesthetic and maybe a bit of sedative if I look terribly nervous. The pre op assessment was not so good. My blood pressure was high - nothing unexpected as I have 'white coat syndrome' even though they were wearing blue. I was tested for MRSA. Under the armpits not so bad I think all they will find is Dove roll-on antiperspirant. Not so sure about the bilateral nose swabs. The worst bit was finding out that I am two inches shorter than I thought I was. That means my BMI tells me I have quite a few more pounds to shed than I thought before I am normal. I am sticking to 500 calories very strictly today.
I had a thoroughly great time at my art class this evening. I even knew what I wanted to paint. I like doing garden portraits. You can miss out the difficult bits because they don't fit into the composition.
I came home to find Tim had cooked me a low calorie dinner. Pasta, tomatoes and asparagus. A great way to finish a Monday.
Last thing today is to paint a picture. I find this therapeutic when it goes well and damn frustrating when it doesn't. Lets hope for the first option.
