Home sweet home.....
Just a short post today to say that I am happy to be back home after being in hospital last week to have various parts of my interior operatively removed. The staff in the *Florence Nightingale* hospital here were all very friendly and caring, and I always had the feeling that I was in competent hands. I will not describe any details of the Op or the pains and discomfort afterwards, suffice to say that it all went without complications, and it's a good feeling to be back in my own four walls. Came home with a taxi yesterday, and the driver was very grumbly that it was such a short drive - about one mile - and dumped me and my case unceremoniously in front of the door, and refused to carry my case up the stairs. So I dragged it up to the second floor with my last vestige of strength and draped myself on the couch to recover! Hope to be able to get back to doing some crafting in the course of the week when I can sit and move with less discomfort and fatigue, but just now it's rest that I need. The picture of Florence Nightingale - who did her nursing training here at the hospital in Kaiserswerth - visiting her patients does NOT show the ward I was on; I had a large, quiet room just for me. But hats off to a great lady who revolutionised caring for the sick in her day.
Thanks to all my friends, especially Sue B,Gina, Alma, Maria & Netty, who sent me encouraging texts and mails containing lots of healing sparkles. So, here's hoping we all stay healthy.
Have a good week you all!
