This lovely basket and assorted gifts was given to me today at work. Books to read, bath salts, lotions and potions, smelly candles, some crayons for sketching, gardening gloves, wine, trowels and gardening fork, a nightlight, a hair piece thing for the bald patch and a Canada Day silly hat. I’ve never had a basket of gifts before, it’s quite wonderful and a lovely, lovely, gesture. Thank you everyone.
So, back to the cunning plan.
Surgery is at 12:15 and we need to be at the hospital by 10:45am. We will be staying over the night before with two fabulous friends who live near the hospital. Naming no names but you may know who they are, 😉
Surgery is bound to be late starting, so maybe 1pm- 2pm? The 2-3 hours of surgery, some time to wake up, etc etc. I think I won’t be sitting up and complaining until 6pm. Maybe they will find a bed for me after all. If not, then it’s back round to those fabulous friends. They don’t seem to mind having a shaven and stapled headed woman with a wound drain in their midst. I hope I don’t put them off their dinner. If I do stay in hospital then MLM will stay with them and have some pleasant company instead of having to sit in a hotel room.
The next day will be back to the hospital for drain removal and then home again by the afternoon.
Between now and Sunday I have two evening shifts and on call to work, plus tidying up the house and shopping to do. MLM has gardening chores and such like.
