It was a bit cold outside this morning when we took our walk. But it didn´t snow at least :-) I couldn´t find Bertil as we were leaving the cottage so I wasn´t surprised when he came running (and shouting) over the fields to join us :-)
After our walk I drove to the hospital to see a physiotherapist. They wanted to do a follow up around six weeks after the surgery. I was a bit early so I went to the cafeteria to have a cup of coffee. Well that was what I payed for. What that brown fluid really were I´ll never know :-) :-) It might have been the last cups they had left from yesterday mixed with something unknown this morning. But at least it was warm.
It´s interesting to sit there and watch people comming and going. Everything seemes to go in slow motion as soon as they enter the hospital. This morning there were a group of visitors. I think they might have been politicians because the guide said that they should go the same way the patients had to. They looked to healthy to be patients and a bit too happy too to be honest. All those one could see were patients had this sort of gloomy look in their eyes. These visitors looked almost jolly in theirs :-)
An employee, a nurse I think, walked around outside the hospital store looking as if she couldn´t decide what to do with herself. Sometimes she almost went in there, but then she slowly cirkeled away again. She kept on doing this for a couple of minutes but then she decided to go there anyway. The next time I saw her she walked around with a big cupcake in her hand :-)
The physiotherapist tested my leg in different ways and came to her surprise to the conclusion that my recently operated left leg in most ways were much stronger than the right one. The reason for that is maybe because I´m ambidextrous, both left and right handed. I usually uses my right hand when doing things but I have always been much stronger in both my left arm and leg. This is very practical when working since I always can shift hands when painting :-) The only problem I have is when writing. When I write with my left hand it becomes backwards and reversed. The handwriting looks just the same otherwise :-)
I bought a new digital box to my tv on my way home. For once I read through the instructions how to do and then started the tv and digital box. On the screen it said: “Shall we start”! It didn´t say anything about that in the manuals :-) :-) So I pressed OK and now I can see my favourite programs again :-) There aren´t any really good programs at the moment, but I do like to watch comedies like “How I met Your Mother” and “Scrubs”.
Well now it´s time to take a walk with my dogs and then bring in some fire wood. Rain is just an hour away or so they say.
Have a great day now!
