So this week, was all about Friday, when I had a bunion operation.
It was the first time I’d ever had a general anesthetic and luckily I had no issues, honestly, I woke up feeling really good, like I’d had the best sleep ever! The nurse commented that I was really perky and alert, there’s a first time for everything!
Anyhow, how the local anesthetic on my foot has entirely worn off, I’m feeling a bit more fragile than I did on Friday and I’ll be mostly on the sofa for the next couple of weeks and my foot is all very ouch..
Ma is calling me ‘limping Lily’ which isn’t very nice but as she spent a significant portion of Saturday morning hoovering my flat and is generally looking after me, I’ll allow it! I’m aware of how lucky I am to have people around me looking after me, Ma, Ben who is going to take me for my check up in November, Kathy and Adam who have offered food and coming around to put the rubbish out and my other friends who have offered help, company and have just generally been lovely.
So I’m going to spent most of this week on the sofa, feeling grateful for my family and friends.. oh and the NHS…
