nearly 2 weeks ago i spent a few days looking out of this hospital window
and sleeping a lot
due to my endometriosis and adenomyosis filled gynae history i had an abdominal hysterectomy: although we made sure that the doctor had strict instructions right up until she dug the knife in. Kind Dog and a sharpie saw to that...
things turned out to be rather more complicated than they had seemed on the outside, but after nearly 3 hours of surgery all was done and neatly stitched back together.
The nurses were lovely and made sure that all my snacking needs were met:
i could watch the olympics in comfort
by day 5 i was feeling better
and we were both quite happy at the prospect of me coming home
so i was carefully decanted into the car and brought home
where i have been well looked after: viz emily's chicken noodle soup on a tray for my first dinner at home
breakfast in bed every morning
constant feline companionship
and wonderful get well presents from Kind Dog
i even made it into the studio this afternoon for 15 minutes: a little stitching was wonderful but exhausting. back to convalescing.
