If I had any advice to anyone it would be never go to a hospital appointment with your fingers in your ears as I did. I should have been more prepared. I cant even lift the kettle, reach the weetabix or jaffa cakes, make a bed, put a washing on. Time is a healer I know but I really didn't expect this immobility. This time next week I will be better again and recovery takes time. It was major surgery after all. Now ... where is my black book! Who can I pick on for tonight's sleepover!
