More Surgery................

Just wanted to let you girls know whats happening with me at the moment. As some of you know,
I have had a few health problems and other worries over the last couple of years. It's been shit! To the point where I was actually given anti-depressants. My Doctor told me my pains were in my head and just kept upping my tablets. I got a second opinion , as I couldn't eat a thing without almost passing out with pain. Turned out I had an infection in my bile duct and two stones. Can't thank this doctor enough, he's been fantastic. So March 17th this year I had it removed. OMG - couldn't wait to tuck in to a cream cake and gorgeous roast dinner. I was in heaven. Decided that I should now reduce the anti-depressants.....with help.
Then a couple of weeks a go - I had a letter that confirmed my breast implants were the PIP ones.
As you can imagine - that knocked me back even more - asking myself constantly " Why me " ?
Sometimes it feels someone up there as really got it in for me - or as I keep telling myself - I'm being tested. But there is only so much that a woman can take. Any way I went for my appointment at the private clinic to discuss what's going to happen. My boobs were checked as were my armpits for lumps and bumps. I was so scared as we aren't in the position to find the money like we were in a few years ago. Hubby had an heart attack which left us rather skint - though things are picking up now.
So - no matter what, they have got to come out - as they are extremely dangerous. This was the most worrying thing of all. I didn't want to look like a freak. I've been awful to live with and so snappy. So an hour in to the appointment, the surgeon told me - he as the funds to remove them and replace for FREE. I sat and cried, shaking with fear as well as appreciation. I still don't know if the implants have leaked until I've been cut open. But I have very faith in the surgeon to put it right.
My surgery is the 28th of this month. I really wanted to just let you know that I will be absent for a few days after. So glad that I have made my DT cards. I just have to schedule them all now.
Hope I haven't bored you with this post. 
So for now I have to shoot. Having my Grand-daughter today whilst her Mummy is at work.
Happy Crafting All.
