It has been a very eventful week. For the first time in my life, I had tears welling up in my eyes when I was discharged from hospital!!!! This had been my "home" for a week and the nurses, doctors and tea ladies were absolutely marvellous.
I can confirm that the surgery went well and I am now in recovery at home with an official title of the couch potato. I am on tablets to numb the pain and my mobility is not too great. I need to move around though since there is a danger of blood clots. Off to have a lie down.
