But right now I need to remember that in 5 years time NOW won't be as hard as I think it is.
I've just got off the phone to the hospital and feel like crying. Elisabeth is on the waiting list to have her tonsils out and they just can't give me a date for when I will know the surgery date let alone anything else! The health system has gone so down hill in recent years and most recently the goverment has pulled even more money from the health budget which means less beds and less staff etc etc.
When Megan, our eldest who is 12, was born we started our journey with the hospital system. WE never had to wait long to be given appointments and hardly ever had to wait when we got there. Roll on 12 years and the system is so different. It's fraustrating and it's lousy. The poor lady, who I spoke to today, just kept saying I can't give you any dates because I have to deal with it on a day to day basis. Which I get and that's fine it's just difficult because I need to juggle things too!
So there is my rant, didn't make me better but I know that in 5 years time it won't matter (just hope the system is better and not worse by then!!!)

We were living in a tiny apartment that was dark and small in a town where I didn't know anyone. I was home with Z all the time and at the time she was 2. My husband had a job that he hated and wasn't happy. I went through a really tough time and had some major life struggles. We were barely hanging on as a couple and almost didn't make it. Later this year though we moved to where we are now, thank God. This move was a fresh start for so very many reasons. I would never want to go back to that time, ever. It really was that bad.
