Gotta love the NHS

Follow-up to Dammit, Why are we back at uni so early? from Anyone Can Post On The Internet

You really have to love the health service in this country. Especially our local hospital in Cornwall. My mother has managed to have her operation (which she's been waiting for for roughly 18 years) postponed twice at short notice but that's nothing compared to today.

The girl who I was writing about previously, and have since visited again to find that we now like each other even more, was supposed to be having an operation today. This was cancelled all of, ooooh….half an hour before it should have begun, well after she had been sedated. I managed to spend all day worrying, especially after a phone call when she'd first been sedated. Then I have a very upset girl who has been waiting for this operation for quite a while crying to me down the phone in a very sedated state.

Gotta love state provided public healthcare don't you?
