Flowers from a special lady to speed my recovery

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.

  2. Wow. It sounds really awful.

    I hope you’re able to put your feet up and recover gently. At least you’ll have relaxed mornings with the school holidays!

    (I know we will. Two boys will be in America and the others won’t surface till at least 10 or 11.)

  3. Look after yourself Claire. Hope that the holidays are going well and that you’re feeling better. Barb xx
