I am pleased to say I am now back home this afternoon and glad to be in my own surroundings, and certainly will not miss the very early morning cup of tea that all hospitals seem to think you want.
The surgery went well, however I have 4 bullet holes (keyhole surgery) and of course they are all in the most difficult place i.e zipping up your pants etc. You would have laughed at me getting dressed this morning. I made the mistake of removing my PJ's and dropping them and the clothes I was to go home in on the floor, I then realised I couldn't bend down to pick them up. Its amazing how creative you get when needs must - I found the easiest way to deal with my problem was was to hold on to the support rail, and wiggle the clothes up my leg until they were within arms reach. Movement number two was like a ballet dancer with one leg out back in the air and extending my reach to reach the floor. Neither suitable for public display but I managed to do what I needed.
I doubt that I will do any sewing until I get back to the cottage at the weekend, and suspect my standing time will be limited so I guess I will only be able to do short bursts - little and often. I think I still have loads of anaesthetic floating around my body because just dressing this morning wore me out.
Thanks to everyone who posted get well wishes on my blog and some who dropped me an e.mail - it so lovely to think that all around the world there are such thoughtful people out there - THANK YOU it really made me smile.
My return gift to all of you lovely people is to leave give you something so smile about too. My daughter acquired a new member of her family on Sunday
