I hope everyone’s as well as possible. How has your week been?
It would appear I’m finally off for a Holiday a la Hospital next week, Tues 10th. It’s for a laparoscopy and a few other diagnostic procedures, so they’ll put me under, dig around and see what they can find. The problem is, it’s in London and I’m dreading it, especially the travel; it’ll be long 2am solo bus ride. If this goes well, I’ll be booked in for the ‘big’ op in the future, so that’s the one I can really start to pee my pants in fear about. This upcoming one should, with any luck, be relatively straightforward. Fourth time lucky, as long as it’s not cancelled again.
It’s been quite the palaver getting the pre-op, medical notes, and everything else in order. Apparently, the London hospital have no notes for me whatsoever. I thought the NHS spent billions on a ‘linked up’ system? Clearly it doesn’t work too well…
As I seem to have a lot of things going on right now that I won’t go in to here as that’ll be far too much excitement for one blog post 😉 I just feel very overwhelmed and like I could cry. Of course, when you’ve got a lot to do, it’s typical that more things will eek their way on to your to-do list, and that everything around you will decide it’s time to pack in and call it a day – the water filter, the boiler, the bloody printer.
Anyway, there’s not enough time or energy to do everything that needs to be done in between all the health issues and pain even though I’m trying my best, so I need to step back from the blog world for a few days. From today, you may find I don’t like or comment on many posts and I’m really, really sorry for that. I can feel the anxiety creeping in already at the thought of not keeping up with other bloggers and their posts!
I likely won’t be away for long but the day after I get home from London I have to go at the crack of dawn to Bristol for a different kind of appointment. I will be so very glad to have a day in bed next Saturday snuggled up with a book!
Now, how the heck am I going to print all of my notes for Thursday, my hospital appointment letters, or my travel tickets??! Time for last minute printer shopping maybe, if I don’t spontaneously combust before then. Sorry for the whinge, it’s been a bad few weeks after stoma problems, money worries and everything else, it’s all just getting to be a bit too much 😂
I’ll try to update with tales of my vacation on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter. I may leave a Trip Advisor review but I’m taking crisps and cereal bars as you can never be too sure with all inclusive food offerings. I’ll leave the swim suit at home for this one 😉
In the mean time, I hope you all have the best weekend and week ahead as possible. Take good care of yourselves 🌷
