Not much more to say today. I haven’t done much today at all except work on blankets that I’m making for the kids in case they do have to go into foster care. I want them to have something comforting to remind them of me.
I forgot to mention that my daughter, currently stuck out in the country with her Granny, has chicken pox. Poor thing. So far she is bearing up well and isn’t scratching too much. My son is sure to get it too eventually but so far no sign of it.
Frankly I’m a bit worried about my Mum having to look after them both. She’s suck in the house with them. She can’t go out because she can’t take them with her and she can’t leave them behind because she’s got no-one to leave them with. I can’t even go and help much. My Mum’s bathroom is upstairs and I can’t do stairs and It’s hard to go for even a short visit because it hurts so much getting on and off the country buses. Nevertheless me and my other half will be going out for a visit tomorrow. I’ll just have to take the painkillers and put up with the side effects.
I really need to learn to drive.
In other news I finally got some information about my forthcoming surgery last week. Apparently the administrators at the hospital trust were trying to drag their feet on the grounds that weight-loss surgery isn’t important. Excuse me – I have a silicone balloon in my stomach that you lot put there and it’s supposed to come out in six months (been in nearly 7 months already). According to the doctor I spoke to they had to “back the administrators into a corner with pointy sticks”, his actual words.
Anyway I am now definately on the theatre list, penciled in for 30th April but it won’t necessarily be on that exact date.
There’s probably more I’ve forgotton to say but right now I don’t really care.
