The last part of our trip to Chendu. After just about being bored to death with hospital visits and just plain waiting around for things to happen for 3 weeks solid, on our last day we were just about ready to leave the flat for the airport when the electricity went off. Now ordinarily this wouldn't be much of a problem would it, except that we were on the 7th floor and the lift no longer worked. So I had to lug 2 heavy bags down 7 floors, (one at a time) and of course go back up again, which was the real killer, then bring down the smaller bags, in the end I got help from Rose's cousins' husband, but I was knackered, and to top it all when we got to the bottom ready to go it pissed down with rain. I was ever so pleased to get on the p
We have just spend a sort of bored hectic month, at the start My wife Rose, went to the doctor for a check up where they found a small lump in her womb, the doctors at our local hospital recommended that we got to Chendu women's hospital, which is supposedly the best in china for the Hysterectomy operation. So in a couple of days we were off, house just about left as it was, Happy the dog to his old home and a 5 hr flight to Chendgu, Due to the lateness of the booking we had to go on separate flights, Rose arriving first and going straight to the hospital, I was collected a the airport but 'little uncle and little aunt' (they are literally, little) .
The operation was a complete success they recon there is no need for any further follow up treatment except for regular checkups, the thing that has made me smile was an email Rose sent to her friend in the UK that said "They removed my baby carry thing and my ovals"
Chendu was quite cold for me, I was in the house in an overcoat most of the time, even with the feeble heating they had on, we were actually staying in her cousins apartment that she uses as an office, we used the back rooms which were a bedroom and toilet/bathroom. We were also in an area of town that wasn't near any centre of any sort so there was nowhere local to go except to the local Carifour which had a KFC where I ate most of the time she was in dock.
I spent all of the days sitting in the hospital with her, although the surgeons were the best in the country, the hospital certainly was not, the shopping malls I have been in were a lot cleaner than the hospital and the hospital toilets needed breathing apparatus. Rose was most concerned about catching a cold off the lady in the next bed, but seemed unperturbed by the toilets!!
Anyway, its all over now and we are back in nice warm and sunny Shenzen, (no indoors overcoats here!) I am expecting Rose to milk the 'do this do that for me' thing but she is improving daily now. The did not remove the Nag bone so she is definitely returning to normal..
