Eily’s Report – 30th November

Dia is Mhuire díobh go léir a chairde, and welcome to my weekly report.

I’m trying to gather my wits about me at the end of a long day. An eventful day but one with a safe and happy ending. In advance of a Hospital procedure, later this week at CUH I was told to present myself at the Orthopaedic Hospital in Cork today (Monday) for a Covid test. In my innocence I gave myself only an hour and a half to get there not counting on all the road works that are going on between here and there. In normal times it’s a one hour journey. But I was playing safe as I hadn’t driven there in a long time. My first stop was at the bypass works, coupled with a building site this side of Macroom. Following a few minutes delay I motored on happy out that it took so little time. Through Macroom was the usual crawl but I was still OK for time and headed off out of town but alas very soon it was plain that we were going nowhere fast. From the edge of the town my skyline was blurred by the sight of huge lorries that never seemed to move. I daren’t look at the time. But on reaching the turning  for Coachford  I made a fast decision to take it even though it threw my mental plan for the hospital out of focus. Luckily there was scarcely a car on the road so I motored on. Right all the way as far as the North Gate Bridge in the city where I would veer left for Shandon Street but somehow things were not as plain on the road as they were in my head but surprise, surprise after many diversions I arrived at my destination twenty minutes late. At Block 7 there was a row of cars, about twelve cars in line all heading for the arch, where you would drive in for the test. A lady came out asked for my details, I could see they were all written on the little phial which she had in her hand and when all my answers compared to the ones in her hand we were in business. She couldn’t be nicer and more pleasant, which made the poking at my throat and nostril seem completely painless. Driving out the gate I felt elated, I did it. I then  made my way across the city where Geraldine and Mick had the kettle boiled for a welcome cup of tea and lunch. Anyone of my family would have driven me, but I’m reluctant to part with any ability that I have, believing that If you don’t use it, you’ll lose it. Needless to say, prayer plays a big part.
