Well hello, it has been a long time, hasn’t it. I know I disappeared, but I had a good reason.
Last Thursday I went to hospital in a great deal of pain, and on April Fool’s Day I had surgery, to remove a ruptured appendix. Quite a length to go to to avoid April Fool’s Pranks really.
I came home on Monday afternoon, to continue my recovery in my own bed (how nice it was to leave the noisy ward behind).
Because my appendix had ruptured, I have been having major doses of antibiotics since then, which continue to make me feel quite ill, and I expect to be pretty quiet until I finish them, and build up my strength again (just in time for school holidays next week).
It has been a humbling experience. I am keenly aware that only a few generations back, I would not have survived the experience. My Mother and Husband have been working super hard to keep the family going, and they both deserve a medal.
You will find me blogging again when my energy levels are better.
