Thank you for the well wishes, Cathy, Kim and Anne, but I won't be seeing the specialist today after all. My appointment for this afternoon was right at school pick up time so I had DH all organised to pick the children up from school and then cart them off to their various after school activities. My poor DH was up at 5am and out the door at 6am so he could be at his meeting by 8am (it was being held just over an hour's drive away). He rings me at 9.45am to say that the meeting has been put back to 3pm! The time of my appointment! Anyway, this is Dubai and these things happen so I told him not to worry and I would change my appointment to tomorrow. Except the specialist is all booked out tomorrow, Friday and Saturday is the weekend, and the earliest I can get to see him is Sunday *sigh*. Still, I guess if I was in Australia it would probably take longer to get in to see him :)
If the kids didn't have their after school activities today I could have picked them up early and taken them with me this afternoon - it is times like these that I wish I had my mum here! She would have sorted out the kids while I went off and did what I had to do. I can't ask any of the small group of friends I know here to run my kids around for me. So I'll just have to put up with a few more days of tingling fingers - I have a full range of movement and they are not turning blue or anything like that - they just feel weird - lol!
Typing is making them feel weirder so I'll finish up for now - think I might go and read a book :)
