Yes, I didn't like the deal that they didn't tell me it was going to Take that long to get an ultrasound. I have other obligations that morning. And I had to get back for it. And if I don't know one that I could, Change my other obligations, but it was too late. So my phone doubt about that. Wasn't very happy about it. So next time, I don't want to give me the exact time. They're going to be doing it. So, thank you.
