Yesterday, being Thursday, the day before Friday, the scheduler of my doctor's office called. I had been put on a waiting list for cancelled appointments, hoping I might get in before Brian leaves for California. The scheduler said she just had a cancellation and asked if I could come in on Friday. I excitedly told her yes and she gave me the time.
Later that day I needed to call the nurse due to some symptoms I was having. During the conversation I told her I had an appointment for tomorrow. She said that was the best she could have done anyway. But later called back to say that my appointment wasn't for this Friday but for next, July 6th, two days after Brian leaves. :(
I guess I assumed if she was talking about Friday, as in July 6th, she would have said next Friday, since we still have to go through a Friday before we get to that one. Maybe she was thinking since is was Thursday she would have used tomorrow for the closest Friday, making it clear that by saying "Friday" she meant July 6th.
Either way they can't fit me in today and Brian will miss our first appointment.
