Dear Santa ...

... in my stocking this Christmas I would like patience.
Dr W called today. He explained that referrals flow in a primary/secondary/tertiary sequence. He's the primary. Dr Caravan is the secondary. Dr Hepatologist is the tertiary.
Primary doesn't refer to tertiary. Secondary does.
Back to waiting til after Christmas.
He will renew my sick note for another 4 weeks until 24th January. Not until it runs out on 27th December though. When they are 'closed for Christmas' (see below). So I can't pick it up til the 29th. Ho ho ho.

  1. Patience is a virtue eh....one *I* obviously wasn't born with either hun.

    Maybe BOTH our New Years resolutions this year need to be "to try to remain being official nuisances whilst maintaining some degree of patience"....

    On the other hand, we could just carry on as normal :-D
