|Waiting for the Delaware Eye Institute to open this morning|
This morning Bill and I returned to the Delaware Eye Institute for Bill's followup appointment to his cataract surgery yesterday.
Remember my blog posting of yesterday where I screwed up and left Bill waiting for over two hours before I returned to pick him up after his surgery. Bill was very distraught, worrying that something happened to me and also being caught in a situation that he didn't have any control over.
I took the advice of one of an Anonymous comment on yesterday's blog to send a thank you card and some cookies.
We left earlier this morning so I could stop at the Acme supermarket. I brought a very nice thank you card and a box of raspberry linzer cookies to give the staff at the surgery center.
I walked into the surgery center and approached the lady at the front desk. I said "I'm probably the last person you want to see today but I'm here to apologize for the situation I caused yesterday and to apologize." A smile crossed her face (thank goodness) as I handed her the card and package of cookies. I didn't push my luck by lingering and left immediately. Hopefully I can put this behind me and (hopefully) they can forget my faux pas.
I like to consider myself very careful in keeping appointments on time, respecting employees and not causing problems. Yesterday was just One of Those Days. I learned something, clear that phone out. And next time Bill has a medical appointment, stay around. I can always go shopping but I never again want to see Bill that upset. He depends too much on me. For all that Bill has done for me the past fifty-three years, this is the least I can do for him.
