In pleased to say that I’m awake after my surgery yesterday. I’ve had a middle lobectomy on my right lung…. and yes it was done by keyhole surgery!
I was groggy and emotional post op. I am in pain today and have no voice which will definitely make some people happy….
My next surgery (on the left lung) is pencilled in for two weeks time. Mr Shackcloth had said we can always push it back if I feel unwell. I’m very pleased about this as I didn’t want to wait six weeks-not than I’m impatient or anything…..
Thought I’d share a few pics of my time here. Don’t look at the first one of you’re squeamish!
My holes and drain
This contraption on my legs keeps my circulation going. It massages both legs and feels amazing. I’m gutted it’s come off this morning! P.s note the surgical stockings and blue slippers – sexy!
Please meet Bertina and Berta. These are Berts twin sisters…..
Finally this is my sister who was so jealous of my sexy slippers she had to have a go. No Sue-they don’t look better on you….
Finally a big thanks to everyone who has messaged me. Thanks to a Rob who shared encouraging words and insight into the op as he’s been through this. Thanks to Louise for my hospital survival kit.
A huge thank you to Mike, Sue, Mum & Dad for being here yesterday. Especially to mum for staying so late because I was being a baby.
The biggest thank you is to my lovely John. John sadly lost his Dad yesterday but was still here to support me. John seriously is my rock and he is amazing and I can never thank him enough.
Bye for now
I’m signing off now but will keep you updated. One final picture which shows my donkey of a sister picking up the Uno cards she dropped all over the floor….. 😀
