Meerkat Calling. Meerkat Calling! Have eluded Mongooses and Cousin Georgie (aka Black Swan...I do wish she'd register) has taken me out for my first excursion since the op.
I have so missed you all (true) and when I got my lovely present I cried as Georgie will attest. Sorry I haven't been in touch but the Op (another fistula) arrived out of the blue. (I am currently sitting very gingerly on the library chair!!!) Feeling a bit down but should be ok in a week or two.
Thank you for the lovely card a few pages back! Excellent. I have missed Bouncy and Jan and Pip and Tony and Brocc and... EVERYBODY and I'd also like to thank ...hmm? What? Oh, sorry got a bit confused there! I hope to be about a lot more soon.
The fall has not done me any lasting damage but the two 'heavies' who picked me up and set me right I would have crossed the road to avoid, but that's life innit, (never judge a book by the cover unless it says Terry Pratchett) ? However, the person who kicked my stick out from under me will feel the sharp side of my tongue if I ever find out who it was!
Now I just have to get over the fistula op. Apparantly if they had removed it all I would have been left incontinent (I like travelling abroad) so they only removed what they could. Then I came round in recovery ( a good thing) and they said I may have to go back in for another op on the fistula but I had to wait for midnight as there was a laperotomy on the go. Finally the surgeon did a bit of painful prodding and I had to stay over until thursday when I was allowed out so long as I had painkillers at home. So it's back to daily visits by the nurse and wincing whenever I have to get up or sit down.
Many, many thanks for the pressie. It's been a long time since I received flowers and chocolates so I will always think of all you lovely people as I eat the flowers and arrange the chocolates in the vase.
TTFN, SIMPLES! Mwah! Mwah!
