An Update and More Photos of Wellington Caves

Hi everyone I just want to tell you that I went with my mum over to the John Hunter Hospital (JHH) for an appointment about her kidneys we arrived early so she could try and get a free parking spot and as it turned out she found a spot right away, over at the JHH you have to pay for parking and the longer you are there the more it costs but there are a few disable spots that are free and that was what mum wanted, and yes she does have a disability parking permit. 


Anyway the doctor was a very nice lady and after talking to mum and examining her said she would like mum to have a couple of more tests but reassured us that there is nothing to worry about she just wants to make sure her adrenal gland isn’t producing and hormones that could raise mums blood pressure as she already has high blood pressure which she takes medication for. 


I also thought I would share a few more photos of our recent holiday to Dubbo.  Yes I walked down and then up these stairs and more the were in fact over 300 stairs to go down the back up again

We have to pay quite a lot for our parking at the public hospital. It's always a contentious issue! I'm glad that they are keeping tabs on your mum, and that looks like a fun visit you had in the caves. Little Leo is so cute and I think he looks like you!

Nice pics. I also hope your mum well.

The cave is cool, but I don't know if I could handle the stairs. I hope your mum is fine.

Love,
Janie

I love going to caves. Sadly, I don't get to go much since Mrs. Penwasser is claustrophobic (which, surprisingly, doesn't mean she's afraid of Christmas).

I remember something like those steps at Ohio Caverns...

I don't mind paying at a couple of our hospitals were it is a flat rate of $4 no matter how long you are there. Pleased you liked the photos

Jo-Anne Meadows said...

Yeah I managed the stairs even though I was in pain and out of breathe I still did it and yes thought to myself it is good exercise

Jo-Anne Meadows said...

Jo-Anne Meadows said...

Jo-Anne Meadows said...

Yeah going down the stairs was fine but why could they not have a lift to take us back up again.....lol
