21st October 1979 & THANK YOU <3

Sunday 21

Got up at 10.00

Knitted, ironed and wrote some letters

Watch TV all day & night = boring

Sam phoned at 11.00




Surely that moustache is drawn on???

what can I say? I am sitting here at 1.45 am UK suffering what I can only think is post op insomnia...... I was never any good at having a nap in the aftenoon and then trying to sleep later on.

I felt wasted at around 23.00 hours, now my eyes are heavy but my brain is buzzing.....got to be the coktail they gave me earlier....... Prepare for an Oscar type speech typed left handed... this may take some time

Today and the past week have given me a reminder about how grateful I am for the circle of people I have in my life...... the amount of kindess and genuine concern for my welfare has been simply breath everywhere I have turned.....

you dear bloggers who have posted me messages here, there'n' everywhere ... you are beautiful crazy people and love you all xx I am going to make a special award for you all but that may take a few days......... watch this blog!!

a big thank you to all my non blog owner readers... who should have a blog and would have great fun....... thankyou for your support xx

my 'pinch flesh friend' who blogs...... Annie Mouse who is such a star ... I wouldn't be without her as a bessy mate xxxx

thank you to the Mad Chicken Woman who was my personal taxi driver today.... another star x

& of course my teen and family thank you xxxx

my speech, however, wouldnot be complete without thanking the team of wonderful people who cared for me Royal Hope Hospital, Salford..... they were all fantastic... the NHS may have its problems but not today.

The nurses that saw me in at 7 am and the nurses that fed me saw me out at 7pm; the surgeon that sorted me out taking care to draw an 'up arrow' in black marker pen on my right arm so there was no mistake which shoulder to poke into; his great skill/work and decision making which means my recovery time is cut in half to 4 weeks yipee; the 4 guys who put me to sleep whilst making me giggle and made sure that I woke up again... now I have it on good authority that Holby City/ Casualty isn't true to life lol (one I do recall had lovely blue eyes though.... and there was me with no make up on and certainly not looking 70s best.... hey ho)

Thankyou all


this post is scheduled to go at 6 am... it is now 2.30am... my it takes time to type left handed but never too much time to say than you xxx

Very happy to read that all is well. Now get some much needed rest and eat as much comfort food as required (post-op food has no calories ... right?) *hugs*

Glad you're doing well. Sleepy time now :)

fracas said...

You have all this attention because you deserve it fraccy sis.

DP will have to hire you to secretary for him now... after all, you can type with only one good arm!

Be wary though, he hides in rooms with scissors and magazines, and he only gives one shoe at a time.

Glad you're doing so well already!

Someone needs to drop the dime and buy you some speech recognition software.

I'd offer mine, but it's trained in that really erratic dialect of disturbia.

(prayers and blessings to you, kiddo. delete this subsect post)
