Hello hello, how is everyone? I’m really glad I drafted this ready to post a little while ago so I can just add a little update then hit publish.
As is what happens with best laid plans and when you have plenty of things to do, something goes wrong. I was very ill at home, and I suspected something like food poisoning (sick, fever, passed out, very weak etc) but then my stoma/small bowel started twisting again (v.painful) so I had no choice but to go to A&E. My ECG & BP were off, my bloods showed infection of some kind, and the surgical consult agreed my small bowel is still twisting on itself. Ergo, I’m always right 😉 I got home Wednesday and straight back into bed. I think I’m back on the mend again now slowly and I’m grateful to be out, though I’ve missed a few days of life as a result. There weren’t enough baubles in the hospital and I didn’t see an inch of tinsel, which means I’m not as much of a Christmas Grinch as I initially thought!
We could all use a giggle, especially those of us struggling or are feeling overwhelmed with life at the moment. Take a moment to step back, say hello to your inner child & let yourself laugh. Laughter is the best medicine 😉
These are taken from the selection of 50 Christmas Memes over at Bored Panda.
One I made earlier, as I’m sure a lot of us would like to ask Santa for a new immune system or some fully-functioning body part this Christmas.
A Heartwarmer – The Dancing Doc
If you’ve got a little more time to spare, there are a few brilliant (though also painful-looking) clips in this compilation.
I called to make a GP appointment recently, only to be told my doc had left a couple of weeks ago! It can take so long finding a half-decent doc, and when they suddenly disappear, you have to start all over again. You know the feeling…
