Still not firing on all cylinders

Hello and happy Tuesday to you all. I am so sorry I have not been around but I have had a yukky old time following my surgery. The surgery itself went well as I told you in my last post and I was all kinda good (as good as you can  expect anyway) till about day 6 when I started to go down hill. I was not a well puppy and didn't know what to do with myself. Frankie had stayed with me until day 5 and then he had to come home to collect Ashley from school camp. So he  flew home and drove back down two days later. I am so glad he did cause I ended up having a massive bleed on day 10 and got a ride in an ambulance and admitted to emergency. It was awful - I have never seen so much blood in all my life - very scary, lucky Frankie is a paramedic cause I would not of coped by myself . Anyway all ended up ok. Apparantly one of the clots that had formed had given way and my body decided to take a little while before it formed another.
I got the all clear to travel on Friday so after visiting my family and attending my Nephews 18th birthday we started for home on Sunday. I was supposed to fly but if I had of, it would of meant that I had to be alone without Frank for afew days, and I sure didn't want that so I decided to drive with them. The first day was ok but the second was very painful with very bumpy roads. But I am home now and supposed to start term 2 of Uni yesterday. I am going to just take it easy for a few days and see how I go and ease myself into it all.
I must admit I haven't even really been around to check all of my favourite blogs which is very sad. But I haven't even read my two magnolia magazines that I had saved to read while recovering hehe I must of been sick. So I will be around soon to check up on what you have all been up to.
talk soon

So sorry that you have been so unwell, and hope that you will be "back in the traces" asap. Please don't push yourself too hard though, you will need time to heal.
