Fifteen minutes on hold for a one-minute conversation.. ngh.

I got a letter in the mail yesterday, telling me I had an appointment for pre-operation examination March the fifth. This being from the public hospital my doctor contacted. I already had my surgery this summer, at a private hospital, so I had to call to cancel this one.

And their phone hours are 8:30 to 13:00 monday to friday, so the only chance I have of calling is in the morning. So I called shortly after they opened, and was on hold for fifteen minutes. Telling them I had already had my surgery took about a minute. Jeez. They couldn't have just supplied an e-mail address? Or at least given an indication of how long I'd had to wait, so I could go fix myself breakfast instead of waiting?

Although I wouldn't mind having a second breast reduction surgery.. >_> I'm not sure how wise it is to operate on the same area after less than a year

Soo, friday. I'm actually looking forward to going to work today, oddly enough. Did some actual work yesterday, without having to be told to do it, and that made me feel good. Naturally I did plenty of slacking off, reading my book or LJ.. But that's very normal when the computer one works on is busy downloading/installing updates and such. ^_^

Felt like my life returned to some semblance of normality yesterday. As long as I don't think about Odessa, I am able to experience short moments of happiness. And that makes me feel a little bit guilty, as if I'm supposed to be drowning in angst because someone very precious to me is lost and I may never see her again.

Got lots of support, ideas and well-wishes from fellow readers of kittenbreak on the day of the tortie kitty.. Contacting each veterinarian and animal shelter between here and mom's place will require extensive research. Will try to do it during any downtime today.

Time to shuffle off to work, right after I finish this mug of Sencha.
