    Thanks everyone, I've had a bit of a bad morning but I won't go into the grim details. Then my grandchildren arrived to give me a hug, closely followed by my son who lives 240 miles away phoning and while he was on the phone my son who lives nearly 200 miles away phoned. Life's not so bad when you feel cared for so onwards and upwards.

    I am very lucky, I couldn't have wished for nicer people and the good wishes on here have also given me a boost. I'm a bit sore and a bit tired so I think things can seem a bit overwhelming but I am definitely getting there. Got to speak to a special nurse on Monday then hospital again the week after. What a busy social life I have :rotfl:

    Decided I needed a makeover to coloured my hair last night, got rid of the grey. This morning went to the hairdresser and had a restyle which I am really pleased with so all going well.

    Well my recovery isn't very money saving, got my daughter to pick me up some new nighties yesterday. Decided if I am going to be in hospital again I want some nice nightclothes. I have a nice dressing gown but my pjs/nighties are well worn, my slippers are a disgrace as they are old ones that generally live squashed in the bottom of a wardrobe, I usually go barefoot at home so when I am next out that is something to get. Not usually bothered about this sort of thing but I think it makes you feel better if you have some nice things to wear. That is my theory anyway so going on a spending spree.

    Definitely buy what you want to make the hospital stay as 'easy' as it can be.

    Good luck, mumps.

    Thinking of booking a facial for next week, feel like a bit of pampering might be nice. My son has managed to take a week off work so will be coming to visit with my youngest grandson, think they will be arriving a week tomorrow so that is something to look forward to.

    Unfortunately I am feeling nauseous so not eating much, I am going to be a size zero model at this rate. Hopefully that is going to get easier, first time in my life when chocolate can't tempt me which is a bit shocking for everyone.

    Mumps, make sure you have your name on your clothes when you go into hospital. In our region they get picked up by the people who change the beds, and if they are not named they are harder to find.
    You can tell the staff that you need to see to your own clothes.
    Things may have changed with all the cuts in the nhs, but it's still worth doing.

    Hope everything goes well for you. Take care. xx
