How lovely to now be able to 'visualise' your girls when you talk about them. Certainly not long now until the new baby comes along and I expect the excitement is mounting for all the family. I have to wait a little longer for my 4th grandchild as the baby is due in mid-July (so far so good). I have two children both born in the month of February (14th and 21st) and three years between the. Daughter is 36 this year and son will be 33. Not sure where the time has gone if I am honest. Since my daughter and son in law moved with their two boys about 60 miles away (they were 15mins walk away before) visits have to be a more planned affair. My son is about 20mins away by car (I do not drive so a bit longer if I catch transport but generally they either pick me up or drop me home despite my protests ha ha.
So you are facing another blood test when transport allows. No doubt if the GP felt it was urgent they would send District/community nurse out to complete the procedure(my Mum's tests are done this way as she is now bedbound in residential care. I have to go to local hospital for any blood tests as GP surgery does not offer this service yet.
I am sure you must miss your friend and neighbour whilst they are away on holiday but know Alfie will be keeping you company. Look after yourself. Sending hugs. Jules xx
