On the mend...

Thank you for all those well wishes following my operation last Tuesday. I have been so fortunate; I had no adverse effects from the anesthetics, very little pain  discomfort in hospital which was controlled easily with paracetamol, little or no bleeding and best of all, my biggest fear wasn't realised. I was terrified that my bodily functions would 'sulk' after surgery and it would take ages to get them working again. But they worked fine with no discomfort! Woot Woot!! lol

 I have been home since Friday morning as I got an 'early mark' for being so well. So I have been doing lots of resting while DH takes care of catering, cleaning and laundry. For this week, I just have to take little walks around the yard, taking it gently.  Today DH went for his usual Sunday golf game so DD1 came over to 'babysit' and generally look after me. 

DD1 brought over 2 platters filled with cheeses, antipasto and fruit; I was very spoiled


She arrived at 10am and about 10.10 I said I felt a bit tired so was going to lie down on the bed for half an hour. I woke up at 12.10! lol
After lunch we sat in the lounge and Eduardo was thrilled to have DD1 over and promptly sat on her lap...

He got lots of tickles and behind ear scratches from her...
By mid afternoon I was weary again and settled down on the sofa...so Eduardo came and sat on me!

I'm not quite ready for any sewing or knitting at the moment as my attention span is affected, but have been sorting through patterns and craft mags instead. It won't be long before I'm back into it. (I hope! lol)

So glad everything is working well...that is always everyone's big fear with such surgery ! Anyway, you have clearly made a good recovery, now you just need to take things easy. I am sure you will feel pretty tired for a while.....you must do the " listening to your body" that everyone talks about. Take care xxxx
