What a Week!!!!

Well things didn't turn out the way I thought they were going to this week.

On Wednesday I started getting some stomach pain, which lasted all night and into Thursday. It wasn't extreme pain but it wasn't going away. So I went to the Doctor who referred me to the hospital where they diagnosed that I had to have my appendix out. I was feeling abit scared of having an operation. I was also feeling abit sorry for myself as my husband is away and he was out of mobile phone range for a few days. Anyway, I had the operation very late on Thursday night and I got to speak to Duncan (my husband) on Friday night. Anyway he is on his way home. He may be here tomorrow or Monday at the latest.

The worst thing though was that when my Mum, Stepdad and son were coming in to see me at the hospital on Friday morning, my mum fell over across the road from the hospital and dislocated her shoulder and has a small fracture in her hip. She ended up being in emergency all yesterday and is in quite abit of pain. She is fairly old and has quite a few things wrong with her, so this is the last thing she really needed. It looks like she will be in hospital for atleast 2 weeks if not more. I really hope it all goes okay for her.

I got home today, but will be taking it easy for awhile and wont be working for 1-2 weeks. So I didn't end up doing the stitching I intended to this week. But after I have a few days of getting over this I should feel up to doing some I hope.

i know all about it Barb and it is a bit of a shock. I burst my appendix on Anzac Day 1986, in my 40s, and it took a few weeks to get over. So you take it real easy and don't go lifting anything heavier than the jug for a month.
So sorry about your Mum too, a worrying time for you both. K.
