Today is our 29th wedding anniversary and instead of celebrating the day, we are traveling to Sahlgrenska University Hospital for registration before my planned operation. According to the notification this could take 6 hours. I don’t know what I have to do in 6 hours. We’ll see. I feel so tense and nervous.
For this trip I paid only 60.00 SEK, my husband traveled with me for free as my companion. It’s so cheap because I got a prescription from my doctor for travel to and fro SU. It’s very nice to live in countries like Sweden where medicare is almost free including travel.
I got lunch at 12:00 o’clock while my husband ate at the restaurant nearby. At around 1:00 PM we were called to talk to the anesthesiologist, answered some questions and also given the chance to ask some questions. We were finished around 1:30 PM. I called for a taxi to bring us home and he pick us up at 2:40 PM. We had 2 co-passengers other than me and my husband of course. One lives on a suburb to Gothenburg and the other one lives about 35 km from us. For this trip I paid 150.00 SEK which should have cost more or less 3,000.00 SEK. The trip with the taxi took almost 4 hours.
