I have to have further investigations at hospital following my recent mammogram. I asked my DH to accompany me, as it is a full day affair. DH asked his manager at work for the day off. She said no, and if he took the day off it would result in disciplinary action! Is this common policy in every workplace? One of the ethical values of the Co-op is "caring for others". This does not sound very caring to me. Well, I'll just have to go by myself on the bus.

hilda that is such good news, thanks for sharing flowers

I've been to the RVI very often in the past few years. DGD went to the allergy clinic, and DGS1 went to dermatology, audiology, and the genetics clinics. He has a skin condition passed from mother to son called x-linked ichthyosis. It is fairly rare, and they were very interested in him. We have always had wonderful treatment from them. I am very glad I don't have to go back though.

Great news Hilda sunshine

Good news, hildajJ. It's good to hear all went well.

tegan, my dad used to do that losing the car business (when he wasn't misplacing the car keys in one or other of his hundred and one pockets). Once he even walked home (a mile or so) and said the car had been stolen. i asked him if he was sure he'd parked it in x carpark and not y. Of course he was sure. I took the keys, walked to y carpark and there was the car. #scat-tastic! grin
I have bouts of it too.

Wonderful news Hilda!

Doesn't it feel great hilda when you get that sort of good news? - I have been down this road twice and was ecstatic - I am so glad that all is well for you. What excellent news.

Tegan Tue 07-Jul-15 19:14:27

Great news. I've been doing some retail therapy and started thinking of you in the car [once I'd found it; not the first time I've wandered aimlessly round a car park for ages] on the way home.

We all dread being recalled don't we? Delighted you are o.k. Hilda.

hildajenniJ Tue 07-Jul-15 18:57:22

Taking the DGC on holiday on Sunday, I'm so glad I don't have anything nasty hanging over my head. I'll be able to enjoy runningshock about with them!!!
I love Newcastle, the nearer I get to the east coast, the more I feel that I am going home, although I was born in Cumberland.

whenim64 Tue 07-Jul-15 18:29:20

Very happy for you, Hilda! smile

TriciaF Tue 07-Jul-15 18:01:14

What a relief! Glad all is ok.
I've been in the Laing Art gallery a few times, how I miss Newcastle!

Alea Tue 07-Jul-15 17:37:47

I am so happy for you -we have all "been there" and appreciate what you were going through. But lovely to have company for a celebratory lunch! smile

Judthepud2 Tue 07-Jul-15 17:29:46

Margsus Tue 07-Jul-15 17:11:10

So very pleased for you! You must feel like a load has been lifted

hildajenniJ Tue 07-Jul-15 16:58:03

Hooray! All is well. I had a cyst which was aspirated, then had a mammogram to make sure it had gone, and I was free to go. My sister and I went for lunch, had a look round the Laing Art Gallery and then I got the train home. I decided the train was more convenient. So all in all, I had a lovely day!
