My patience is growing thin....

Would you believe we still haven't heard from the hospital about when the PET  scan will be!  I'm giving them until friday and then I guess I'll have to start calling people.  Don't they realize how nerve wracking this is?  I am just about at my end.
I'm keeping busy and I have another small finish to show you.  This one is called "Blackie" and it's by Homespun Elegance.  He was fun to stitch especially with those nice Belle Soie silks I was lucky enough to receive.  I stitched him on a fabric I don't use too much anymore and I can't for the life of me remember why I don't.  It's a joy to stitch on and that's Jobelan.  This one was 32ct. Sandstone.
I have alot of the chenille trim that Blackbird Design's uses so this one I dyed green with food coloring and I'm very pleased with how it turned out.

My next project is "My Treasures" by Threadwork Primitives but as usual I'm changing everything.  I'm going to stitch this one also in the Belle Soie and the pattern calls for a light colored fabric but I'm going the opposite.  I don't have a name for this one (somehow tags just disappear) but it is a 32ct hand dyed cocoa brown.
Again, I want to thank all of you for your kind emails and prayers sent our way.  What would the world be like without people who care?....I wouldn't want to know.
Blessings Upon All, Barbara

How frustrating for you both! I hope you hear soon. Lovely finish, though!

Lovely finish and I really like threads/fabric you pulled for your next project, Barbara!

If it were me, I wouldn't wait until Friday, but would call tomorrow or Thursday. That way you wouldn't have to deal with the weekend before "they get back to you". Just a thought!

Cute finish.
Your next project looks nice also.
That's frustrating and nerve wracking.
I don't understand why hospitals and clinics make people wait so long.
I'm glad you can keep yourself busy with projects.
Take care.

Get on that phone now!!!! I have had the same problem with heart specialist and my DH , his appt was cancelled and they would be sending another after 6 months yes 6 MONTHS. He phoned last week asking when he would be seen, oh we will put you back on the waiting list or would you like to speak to the consultants secretary, he did , and she said we will see you on Thursday (last week) outcome being he is on meds and has to have tests done again year as he has a genetic disorder ,argh doesn't it make you want to spit!!!!So my advice is chase it!!
Love the Blackie sheep,of course . Take care both.

Have to say I agree with Robin and Barb on this. You have to hound them. I hate doing it. I do. But the squeaky wheel gets the oil.
Very nice and cute finish.

Blackie looks great! I really like the chenille trim. I have to say I would ring the hospital too.
