Today Auntie had a medical scan scheduled in a hospital about an hour from home. The friend who was supposed to take her got sick so I took the afternoon off work and away we went.
It was a nice sunny day and there were several deer along the highway, finally venturing out from the snowy woodlands looking for food. Great day for a drive.
But once we got to the hospital things didn't look so bright! They informed us the machine was broken! I had taken time off work and it looked like we were heading back home. The technician was great and took pity on us. (Probably because we both looked like we were about to burst into tears at the "broken" news). He said they had been tinkering with it and had it running again but couldn't guarantee it would function properly or even stay running but he agreed to try. I crossed my fingers and toes and held my breath........it worked! Auntie got her scan and the repair guys were waiting to take it apart as we left. Whew!!
And the day ended with a sweet treat - a box of homemade French macaroons
