I haven't had the chance yet to look at missed blogs so I hope you are all hail and hearty!
Here I am, 10 days after my op and I've finally managed to get my hands on a computer. Operation went well I think (well I'm alive which is a plus) and the dear consultant also straightened up my big toe which wasn't on the agenda until I begged him that morning.
Tilda and Feather - I've got SO Many character observations to report, it should keep me busy for a while. Thank you for mentioning it to me. It really made a difference to the whole experience.
I have just arrived at my 'worst case senario' which is a residential home for the elderly where I shall remain until I'm able to weight-bear - by which time I will hopefully have got used to the smell of stale urine on my wheelchair cushion.
The staff are absolutely fabulous though and very mindful of my relative youth. (haha) At the moment I am sitting by my window which, due to health and safety, can only open 2 cm. Nonetheless, it is plenty wide enough to hear the music from the fete which is being held today. I am typing this to the accompaniment of 'Donal where's your trousers' and 'Daisy, Daisy'...........my cup runneth over!
I'll go into a little more detail about the op and recovery etc on another blog for those of you who are waiting for surgery and may be interested to hear about it.
It is surprisingly tiring doing nothing but on the plus side, a self-propelling wheelchair will do wonders for my bingo wings and 'elderly residents' meal portions should help me drop those pounds.
Gosh, this site with you fellow bloggers has really winkled it's way into my life. Thank you for all your kind messages.
