Home sweet home

Well I'm back from my little break. The LGI loved me so much they kept me from 7am lying on a trolley in the waiting room for 13 hours cos I was a moaning Minnie and said I couldn't sit for hours on end in a chair but it must have been laundry day cos I had no blanket but sure I looked cool wrapped in a black poncho with my hoodie over my face (also black) the pink cat ears on the hood added to the effect I'm sure. 2 doctors tried to scare me by telling me how dangerous the procedure was and of course I had all day nil by mouth to think about this. I had ran away once so thought I should go through with it this time!

At 8.30pm a nice man with another trolley arrived and this time I even got a pillow too.

Another nice man gave me some stuff that made the world go wibbly then I woke up and the lovely nurses plonked me into a bed where I stayed for the next 2 days to enjoy the hospitality. The tv was free yippee :)

I still have a bit of bone protruding it's bright red at the moment but won't know how much the op has worked till the swelling has gone down.

I hope the lady in the bed opposite has gone on ok today cos she was having a triple heart bypass and was scared - I would be too!

Back home now and being spoilt rotten and my friends have just been round from work to see me. The op may not have been a huge success but I woke up just glad to be alive

Hope you are all having a good (or not so bad) day

Glad that you went through with it this time Storm. It sounds like you have been a whole lot braver than I might have been in your position (I too have done a runner from hospital before now,). Hope you recover quickly and that your friends continue to spoil you! Jane x


Thanks Jane - I was tempted to walk out after 7 hours but rang my best friend and me mum and they both said 'well you've got this far' I was scared cos if the consultant pushed too hard he could damage my windpipe, arteries etc but hey I'm still here - still have lump but have a different attitude towards it x
