Good Morning folks.
Thought I would let you all know how I've been since my surgery.
Swelling is going down now and I'm more mobile. Though get tired quickly. I guess I'm trying to do too much too soon.
The day of the surgery started off badly. We arrived at the ward for 7.30, to hear staff complaining about Mr Vakis ( surgeon ) taking a Saturday surgery. We weren't allowed to use the ward toilets as we were not classed as a patient until we were in a bed. The anaesthetist called me at 9 a.m. to complete paper work and to tell me there's no beds, but not to panic.
Yeah right....I was fuming. Been up since 2 a.m. not eaten since the day before..thirsty and so needed a cuppa and fag to calm my nerves.
I was still sitting on a plastic chair, Eric snoring at 11.45 when the surgeon asked me to come out in the corridor as he wanted a word. You can imagine how I was feeling..."Gowd he's sending me home". He was so nice....fit as well.. ( a Greek hunk of a man ) lol. He told me he'd found me a posh bed - on the private ward and a nurse would come down and fetch me shortly.
On arriving in my beautiful room...Eric ( Hubby ) left. Could have walked with me to the theatre. Instead I learnt he was missing the football!
Operation went well...I did have breathing complications so had to have oxygen for an hour or so after and the drip too. Scary. I was in my room by 3 p.m. the girls were first to arrive.
Bless our Megan cried so much.
I was home at 9.30p.m.....could of stopped in over night but Megan was beside herself and my bed is so much better. Meg said that there was no way she'd have gone to America if I'd had it on the 30th.
So....Chloe took two days off work, school gave Megan 3 days off school. My girls have been wonderful, really looked after their Mum - so very proud of them both. Tasha, my eldest as been doing the shopping for me. Eric ( Hubby ) took no days off at all.
I have to say - all the running about I do for family and friends, I was shocked that I have heard nothing from them. Not a text, call or email. So of course when your alone and feeling inadequate, your mind works over time.
So I'd like to thank - June and Kerry ( Internet friend from way back ) who have sent me kind messages. My closest friend Simone - who as put up with my moaning for a few days. Debbie, from Teddy Bo's design team for her lovely card - no matter how your feeling she always thinks of you with a card. Thank you Sweetie. Finally my followers, who also sent me some wonderful messages.
Thank you so very much.
So that's it....I've decided that, there is no way I'm running around after anyone again. They will be treated the same way as they've treated me from now on. The same goes with Eric...my Hubby....whom I gave my all for 6 months when he had the heart attack. Not one single day as he taken time out......except for a day off to fetch his new van! MEN!!!!
You certainly live and learn.
I don't have one of my cards to share with you - as I really haven't felt like making one. Strangely - not even missed making one - sorry folks - but I will get back in to it - soon - promise.
I have actually learnt myself to crochet - made a few granny squares for a baby blanket.
Will show soon.
Though my Daughter Megan made a card for me, for Mothering Sunday.
Hasn't she made a smashing job?
Everyone was moaning at her - for being in my craft room and using my bitz and bobz.
" Mum's gonna kill you, make sure you put everything back " they kept shouting.
How could I have moaned at her? This card is wonderful and will be treasured forever.
This is the first time I have seen her creative side too. Though she has said she won't be making another in a hurry. This one took her 3 hours ( Bless ) and said it's the hardest thing she's ever done.
Certainly cheered me up.
So my sweet friends - I've sat here for what seems ages - I'm going to have a soak in the bath. Hopefully catch you all soon. Again thank you for thinking of me.
Hugs & Loves
