So, Phyllis the Hernia is no longer.
Two weeks on, the stitches are healing.
I can see my feet once more. I’m bruised, but happy.
It’s weird though, having this operation is a bit like being diagnosed with MS.
You certainly find out who your friends are.
Not many, but a few of the people I thought would send good wishes, if not come for a visit, haven’t. My other amazing friends, thankfully, have.
I’ve been lucky, I’ve had offers of help, visits, someone to put my bins out on time. Although raddled with Cabin Fever, I’ve had visits every day, bringing me news of the Outside World and a supply of blueberries (my must-have).
Yet being alone for the majority of the time has been interesting. I’ve set up a study schedule. I’ve replied to all my emails. I’ve ordered some covers for my garden furniture. I’ve watched every single episode of ’90 Day Fiance’. If nothing else, I now know how to apply for a visa if an American guy ever took a shining to me.
I’ve tootled around my cottage, counting cobwebs. I’ve snipped dead leaves from plants, sorted through kitchen drawers and, well, been a little bit bored.
I know I need to take it easy, but it’s a bit frustrating.
Perhaps I was a bit hasty in turning down appearing in TLC’s ‘Too Ugly For Love?’
