First of all, thank you so much to everybody for all the lovely comments on my post about my Dad last week. I know my mum read them all as well and was very touched by all your good wishes. So, thank you – it really is appreciated.
Unfortunately, although the treatment he had has gone some way towards improving the situation, my father is still on some heavy duty pain relief, is unable to walk very far at all and is still in substantial pain at times. He has a further appointment with the consultant a week on Thursday, and I’m going back to Bournemouth to spend another few days with them and take them to the hospital for the appointment. I do think the best option is going to be surgery, but I get the impression that the consultant would rather continue with less invasive procedures at the moment. We shall see.
On another note, my back problems have gone away, thank goodness. I’m almost 100% confident now that it was stress related, particularly as a friend emailed me and said her husband suffers from the same thing. Stress is a funny old thing, isn’t it?
The last week has gone in something of a blur. I’ve been extremely for some reason tired and sleeping 10 hours a night some nights. Eating all the wrong things, too. Hmmmph.
This coming week looks to be a busy one, as I need to pack a lot in as I’m going to be away the following week. Today I was up with the lark, wide awake at 6 am (does anybody else have a body clock that makes them fall asleep by 9pm but wide awake before it’s even light? I know I’m a morning person, but it’s getting ridiculous!).
So I went to the boot sale first thing – it was rubbish (probably because it’s Mother’s Day), and I only managed to buy two things. Unheard of!
Brand new pack of Winnie the Pooh removable wall stickers, which I paid £1.50 for, and a pretty Monsoon summer top for £1. At one point I thought I was going to come home empty-handed!
I’ve just done my menu plan for the week, written a shopping list, and planned my blog posts. I’m now off to write the mother of all To Do Lists, so I can hit the ground running tomorrow morning.
Hope you’ve all had a good weekend, and wishing you a fabulous week to come x
