Almost Missed Christmas

I am literally just home from another stay in hospital(s) and only just managed to meet their discharge requirements at 7pm this evening.

Fortunately I had my Christmas obligations met before I went in last Sunday.


So another 8 day trip around Edinburgh hospitals, lots of blood, lots of pain, little urine, lots of tubes, numerous bags of fluid, more tablets, less tablets and did I mention even more pain.

However I am now only 2 days away from seeing the Consultant and hopefully get details of an action plan that includes more than just treating the symptoms.

Most annoying bit is I have not touched any of my toys this past week.

Now, can someone remind me when this Christmas lark actually starts.

    1. Fun doesn't really cover what I've been through in the past few days but I'm still standing and smiling.

  2. Hope Christmas is a 'good' one for you and that things are sorted soon - as for when it starts, I reckon it starts when you feel it does. In my case, now, all the travelling is done and I can just relax...

    1. Yes, no more travelling for me for a few days at least but I would certainly want to be able to drive to York in February for Vapnartak.

    1. Thanks Wizard and Hilary.

      Certainly looking for a bit of an improvement.

      Might have missed sending you a Christmas card this year because of all the to-ing and fro-ing.

      Merry Christmas

  5. Never mind, Christmas wasn't too much fun for the Holy family either!
    You still have Hogmanay to look forward to!

    1. Had a vague notion of PVA-ing some static grass tonight but the medication is making me a bit woosy.

  7. Calendars can be over rated--Christmas is better defined in the observance. Merry Christmas!

  8. On the plus side you’ve not had to do the food shopping. Now get something painted.

    1. Will perhaps have a go on Christmas Day evening as the house will be busy through the day but emptier in the evening.

    1. Unfortunately I was back in hospital just after midnight and then again after lunch. More gore running riot through my nether regions.

    1. Hi Steve

      Yes, I've had coughs and colds before (everyone has) and I've also had more serious conditions. This one has topped them all in the extent of pain never mind spending most of the last fortnight in hospital, or going to hospital, or coming back from hospital.

      Had a breakthrough this afternoon which I will post on the blog.
