Grown up?

Yesterday I underwent a minor surgical procedure; it was a follow up job so, against surgeons wishes I opted for a local anaesthetic. The last one was done under general and meant I had to be looked after.

This time I drove myself to hospital, and home again to pick up my little poppet.

Other than Isobel I went home alone.

Now, there is something awfully grown up about driving yourself to or from the airport or hospital, but it also kind of makes you feel a little unloved.

Oh, I'm ok. I have uncomfortable stitches, and people do care. It's just that lump in the throat moment as you walk out the door.

I have never driven myself there and back, but I have had surgery under local. I hope you are well
