A few days ago, I was in terrible pain. I was scared and I was being rushed back into surgery. But I remember so vivid the colour and detail in features the dream I had after surgery. A golden person so bright they shone brighter than anything we can see, visited me. They did notContinue reading “I Was Visited.”
I havent posted for a while. Six days and it feels like months ago, time goes very slow when you don’t feel your best. Sorry for the last photo! But anyway, after I was discharged I went on an outpatient waiting list. 6-8 weeks. Despite me saying how sick I was on the tube feed.Continue reading “Bariatric Downs…”
They rush around in blue and white People crying Pain and sorrow Healing and heartache Waiting waiting waiting The patients are an endless sea Nurses the disappearing catch Soon the sea will be empty of catch and patients cut adrift to drown amongst themselves Growing ever vaster.
Looking pale Body failing Operated on slowly healing Hair white Bed pan in sight Up at night no delight Nurses fussing Feel ignored Sleep all day Soon get bored Unsure what else life has to offer Not quite sure why they bother Keep on smiling Say the right things Don’t complain Made of stronger things.

Off to see my new Bariatric surgeon who has been assisting me in the UK, Leeds, with the post operative issues I’ve been having. To say I’m nervous is an understatement. I’m unsure whether I will need another dilation to the stricture I had at my stomach exit, or maybe my current issues could beContinue reading “Eeek, honest RNY post.”
I took my teen out today, look round some Christmas decorations, garden centre, hot chocolate and sausage roll. Bought a few special items. I had a lovely time ignoring the sulking from the teen. The whole time. The hating the crowds. The sausage roll is disgusting. The hot chocolate was rank. The shops were boring.Continue reading “Moody teens”
I woke up this morning with a bag of defrosted sweet potato fries next to me. Surely I could have found something better to ice my head with at 3.30am with migraine. Just goes to show my brain doesn’t function correctly when migraines occur! What a waste and a surprise to wake up and see.
