Persistence is the Thing

The surgery rang back on Monday evening, after The Old Man's INR blood test in the morning, to tell him what dosage of Warfarin to take.

And by the by - his next blood test would be in "two weeks time".

The Old Man exploded. Told 'em that he needed two blood tests a week until his INR level had stabilised - cos it is still up and down like yoyo.

Reception rang back later to say that he could in fact have the twice a week that he wanted for now.

It left The Old Man puffing like a Grampus - but victory was his.

I tell you, sadly but with the wisdom of experience, - take nothing from GPs on trust. And stick to your guns. If you know where they are.
