At the hospital again

Had to go to the hospital today for another ECG. I'm pretty sure it's just routine. It was at the new hospital in the area after most of the departments at Falkirk were moved. It's quite nice inside but the first thing you come across is a Starbucks, seems an odd thing to have in a hospital.

Went quite quick which is good, usually they run late. Was another old short lady like the last time, always find it uncomfortable but I guess an attractive young nurse would be a lot worse. Hate having to stand there topless before it begins and then afterwards wiping the gel of my chest like a cheap porno but I guess that's normally a topless woman and some sort of cream.

On Saturday I was at the psychiatrist again. I turned up on time and buzzed the buzzer, no answer. Waited 5 minutes, buzzed again, no answer, another 5 minutes, buzzed, no answer, this went on till just after 20 past. Finally someone came, he must of been another psychiatrist who was in a session, I felt really bad. The guy I was meant to see was running about 30 minutes late. Once inside I got taught how to hit myself, not violently but in a sort of tapping manner that is meant to help nerves.

Tór has had his second jab now so will soon be able to go on nice long walks.

When should you tell a puppy that you're not it's real parent?

So with Tórshavn already reaching the 9 week mark and just 5 days till he gets his jag to able to go outside I was wondering what is the right age to tell him that he's adopted?

Dougie is a good few years old now and I've never told him, I'm fairly sure he hasn't worked it out yet either.

It's been a fun week

Well on Saturday went to my first appointment at the psychiatrist and it only lasted around 20 minutes, got given a shit load of paper work to do for the next time which is great.

On the Sunday I went and picked up my puppy, got a Great Dane Cross, he's lovely. Unfortunately yesterday I started to have major breathing problems. I don't know why I just couldn't get any air into my lungs, felt like I had a vice on them and my throat was very tight. Had a driving lesson which I did try to go to but she sent me away after I sat down and couldn't say two words. Funnily I was bent over double most of the day almost laying in a heap and my mother who has worked in hospitals only said to me I shouldn't of been out last night.

Anyway eventually the doctor came to see me and gave me some steroids and a puffer thing to open my airways, he mentioned a virus which I'm hoping it is since I'm really worried that it was an allergic reaction to the pup.
