My Dad is doing great - he is no more tired than normal, even though it was a general anesthaetic that he had. He saw his doctor this afternoon and he said that within another week life will be back to normal - he is healing fast, and the hernia appears "gone".
As to me - slightly different story! I still go every 2 days for clean bandages - and the doctor has now signed me off for another month - which, when you are self-employed (without private insurance) is no fun! I am still at Mum and Dad's and will go back to my place one day next week - and hopefully will have my next hospital appointment waiting for me. Still -I keep positive to remember that I have the finger - and there are many millions worse off than me - some of whom will be reading this - so to those, sorry if you think I am bitching!! I still have my arm in a sling all the time, except when I need to drive.
Now for some Christmas thoughts - which I shall put behind a cut as there are a couple of pic ... and a bit of a ramble!!
I was thoroughly spoiled - Mum ad Dad bought me 2 pairs of earings - one of which were ruby and diamond. Tim bought me a MP3 player and some bits; while my brother Nick bought me a DVD set of Danger UXB - a series from the 70s starring Anthony Andrews (hope it is as good as I remembered)
Then Boxing Day it was our turn to go to Tims ... about a 35 minute drive. Again it was a lovely day - and yet again we ate far too much -
As you can see - Dad is looking really well - 2 days after his op.
We went for a walk without Dad in the afternoon - and then after tea it was time to get Jiffy in his harness for the trip home -
I did remember to remove the hat before getting in the car!!
Well, thats me done!!
I am now off to watch Dr Who as Mum and Dad are watching something else - and I haven't been able to see it yet.
