This wasn't what I'd hoped my next post would be about. I'd wanted to tell you I'd had my op and I was home getting better. Instead I am at home but no Op has taken place!!
I got to the hospital yesterday at midday as planned - I was admitted to the ward at 2pm and then I waited and waited. My BP started to rocket due to the stress. I called P who works in town and he came over and sat with me to take my mind off stuff. At 4.30pm a nurse appeared in my room with a sheepish look on her face. I knew what she was going to say before she spoke. Due to over-running previous ops mine had been bumped off the list :( So after almost 5 hours at the hospital and 10 hours without food or drink I was on my way home still with my dicky gallbladder inside me :(
Cross is an understatement - so much planning had taken place to ensure I had got people to look after me whilst I recover. Friends/family had taken time off work to help out and having my Op yesterday meant I wouldn't miss much other stuff in my life that I want to do - sadly this now means I will miss things I was looking forward too.
I've spoken to the hospital this morning - a new date has been arranged and this time I am first on the list - however its 3 weeks away and it clashes rather with things I had wanted to do and also getting sorted for my move. Luckily P and I are getting on well so we are going to work together to make sure things happen as smoothly as possible.
I might have kicked several cushions today and ripped up the odd newspaper!!!
And now for something lovely - my garden always looks at its best in June - so whilst trying to calm down after this mornings call, I wandered around with my Ipad and took some photos which have of course already appeared on Instagram (I do love that place rather a lot these days);
Oh btw I've added a new widget to my sidebar - I wanted to see where my blog visitors were visiting from - its not entirely accurate but it is interesting - lots of UK (seems there are plenty of readers in Suffolk) and US visitors. Does seem that Sid the grass snake is still bringing in people - ever hopeful he will appear again soon - just need some long hot sunny days!!
See you soon
