Much of Skövde looks like this,
So up I went this morning and checked the thermometer seeing that it´s only -21,5C (-6F) outside! That wasn´t anything I wanted to see :-) :-) There were strangly enough no ice on the cars windows?
or this. Not something I think is beautiful.
But near the town square one can find really fine older buildings.
Since It was so cold I decided to let my dogs stay in the cottage while I was away, it should go pretty fast at the doctor since it was just a check up before the surgery. Well, it was a bit more actully.
This is a little hotel.
I talked to my doctor and he checked my blood pressure and tested how bad my leg was. But after that I had to give some blood, fill a lot of papers with info about myself, meet a physiotherapist and an occupational therapist and in the end I had a talk with the anesthetist that would take care of me during the surgery.
I can´t say that they had organised this especially good, it took some time, but that gave me a chance to talk with the man that will have his second surgery too at the same time as me. We agreed on having the tv on all the time since it´s the olympics. If one falls asleep but not the other he still can see the games :-)
I also met a woman that lives very close to me. Her problem was that the hipreplacement got loose from the hip all the time, so she had to get it done one more time to get it right.
When I came home I found 14 pounds of sunflower seeds spread all over my home. I can´t understand why they have to open up those bags since they don´t like to eat them. They had also manmaged to open up the door to the dog food. Hector, I know it´s him he has done it before, had then chewed through the bottom of one of the dog food bags and started to eat from it :-) :-) I won´t even mention what they had done to the cat littre box :-) :-) :-)
A tourist visting centre.
If You wonder how I´ll do with the blog when recovering from the surgery I will continue as usual. Well not the week when I´m at the hospital, but when I come home I´ll start again. I´ll leave a message here the first thing I come home. Now there´s a fire in the stove and a pot of tea will be made. Teodor is sleeping on the kitchen couch close to the food bowl :-) Bertil sleeps near the stove, Erna walks around looking at tye floor for something to eat and the two brothers sleeps on the floor next to me.
Have a great day now!
It was so nice to come home again :-)
