How are you? I’ve missed you! But I’ll be honest… I haven’t missed the British weather, which greeted me with grey skies, rain and cold on Friday afternoon.
I spent yesterday sorting out a few things, grocery shopping and making my way through hundreds of emails, and I still haven’t fully unpacked my suitcase yet. Part of me wonders whether I should leave it as it is and get the next flight back. I wish! Yesterday was also quite difficult for me as I was in a lot of pain; my body struggled over the week, but not as much as it could have, though I paid the price when I got home. My joints, muscles, hips, everything hurt. A bucket load. But it was worth it.
Thankfully I didn’t have many problems with the stoma while I was away apart from on the second night which was perhaps due to a mixture of dehydration and cucumber slices at dinner – hadn’t had them since before the ileostomy and I couldn’t resist – but luckily that was pretty much it. I worried no end about possible leaks but they didn’t happen, though I was changing my bag twice most days.
I’ll post more soon and pop up a few pics in case you want to see as that’s more exciting than having me write all about it, especially as I could write for hours about the beaches, the amazing staff at the hotel and the glorious weather for someone like me who struggles with being cold all of the time usually.
In the mean time, I hope you are all doing okay. I’m sorry for being quiet this week but I’ll catch up with reading posts and emails over the next couple of days. Hope you all have a relaxing weekend…
