Pre-assessment all done!
They weren’t kidding when they said anywhere from two to four hours! The longest part was waiting to have my blood test (one and a half hours) but other than that, it was over pretty quickly. They almost forgot about me when I was waiting to see the anaesthetist but that was sorted after I asked at reception. They had to do an ECG because I still occasionally (and I mean very rarely) get palpitations but they’re not worried too much about that.
Bye bye hospital, see you in two days!
