The follow up appointment

Had a dream last night in which I was at hospital for some sort of follow up appointment to my recent heart operation (that I had in real life). I got there a little early, so I had a wander round and went to the toilet.

When I came out the toilet, I saw two women saying goodbye to each other. I headed out of the hospital, but then realised I hadn’t had my appointment yet.

I went back in and met the Doctor. He was a young guy. He told me my heart was doing well but I needed to wear a head wrap. He wrapped a big piece of material around my head (under the chin and round my head, like a circle framing my face). He said I had to wear it every day for 3-4 weeks, but I knew I was going to take it off when I went to work.

When I got home, I went up to my room to find that part the laminate flooring had been removed, revealing parquet floorboards. My brother was outside my room so I started to have a go at him. However, my mouth started to swell up, like there was something under my top lip and I could barely talk.

Oddly enough, this didn’t feel like a new thing. I’m sure this has happened before in dreams.

I went downstairs and found Mother. I asked her about my floor and she said she’d sold the laminate on eBay. I suddenly remembered that she’d actually told me this a week ago, but rather than admit it, I just carried on.

I then went into the kitchen to ask the doctor – who was apparently in there – what was going on with mouth. I never found out what it was though, as I woke up at this point.
