Home Again, Home Again...

Jiggety Jig!

Well the bleed started again yesterday afternoon and a quick call through to the doctor resulted in me being told to meet him at the hospital and then scheduled for a spot of surgery at 6pm. This time it was all done in theatre and under a general anaesthetic, rather than with the use of local anaesthetic in his rooms, which meant he could dig around a bit more without me having a sooky-la-la cry.

I have to see him again Monday to be sure the bleeding has really, truly, properly stopped and then he's sending me off to have some blood tests to check my haemoglobin levels as well as something to do with clotting agents in my blood. In my usual sick and twisted way it struck me as funny that, after a week of minor arterial bleeding that has the doctor all worried, he's going to order more blood be taken in order to check how it's doing LOL.

The best news is that I'm no longer on bed rest. I'm not allowed to lift heavy things or do anything even mildly strenuous but I am allowed to get up, walk around and do some normal stuff. Yay! Unfortunately I'm feeling kinda wiped out so have actually spent most of the afternoon in/on my bed. But tomorrow I'll be tackling a few chores I'd had earmarked for the past week, like labelling all the school stuff for the kids.

Glad you are feeling a bit better ever thought you are quite tired. Yes anaesthetics do that to you ---- oh and could I say it is because you are of a more mature age now. LOL. Hope the kids helped this afternoon and hope Glenn is going OK with his back.

Glad you´re gonna be ok! Take it easy with doing chores, huh?

It can take a couple of days for a general anaesthetic to get out of the system so take it easy. You poor thing! It all sounds very "who'd be a girl?" to me. Yick.
