I had Surgery! And how I am recovering ...

Hello everyone! 

I miss my blog. I need to take things slowly (I am currently writing this from bed) but actually for the sake of my mental health I feel that I need to write. To talk about whats been going on in my head, what I have been doing (which honestly is watching far too much telly and spending far too much time alone) and what I have been loving. 

Ok, so after having a scan of my ovaries on the 26th October I was placed on an urgent list for surgery (within 6 weeks) but then after spending the whole of the weekend unable to keep any food or fluid in I ended up having emergency surgery on the afternoon of the 30th which didn't go totally to plan. I ended up losing a lot more blood than I should have and was in theatre for nearly 5 hours. By the time I got back to the ward I felt horrendous and was faced with a very worried Husband! Despite this I was discharged the next day on a load of pills ... only to end up back on the ward with a raging infection!

Fast forward a week I am home and off my antibiotics but I didn't realise how slow I would have to take things! I have had the surgery twice before and been up and about within a week but due to the anaemia I am finding it all really strange trying to get myself up and about without feeling horrendously dizzy. My body doesn't cope well with antibiotics either and having been on 3 different lots I feel like my body is completely rebelling against me. I have no appetite (which if you know me is very strange.) and also my mouth is sore and dry, which makes eating anything other than really bland food hurt. 

There are quite a few things I have been enjoying tv wise and I will be back with a round up in this weeks Sunday post (yup I am bringing them back!) But for now I am not sure when I will be back to a blogging scheduele, for now you can find me in the house wrapped in a cosy jumper drinking tea!
