Yep, you've guessed it..cancelled.
They wanted me to go back the next day early for a op the following day..I refused and said that I would come in on the evening (as I have been admitted now..and end up just sitting there getting stressed) just as well as that one was cancelled too!

Hope everyone is well. Speak soon,
