Operation tomorrow………

So after a mammoth nap completely ruining my hair, making me look more sideshow Bob, than sexy siren, which at best is a stretch.

So I see  Dr Abreo, hes the one who last week said my ‘arm tounge’ was, and I quote ‘awesome’. Hes a funny guy actually, at the last appointment with plastics, we were trying to think who he looked like out of a film, he attempted to help us, he rattled off random (albeit good looking) black men including Will Smith, (hes who is soo on my list) which he looks nothing like… I think he was just fishing for a complement, instead he had me laughing my head off, there was snorting n everything, lol thankfully hes got a great sense of humour …

Anyways today he pitches up with a concent form for tomorrows operation, saying they are trying to get a mesh thingi which goes under a skin graft it strengthens healing and will protect my tendon. All good. Then the what might happens… bleeding, infection, pain, OK no problems there, CRP its not crap spelt wrong, its chronic regional pain… which is cos they will have messed around with it lots. But I told him this… ‘ you realise it has to go right this time… I have sewing to do’ he points at my arm and says me too …. lol


We then played noughts and crosses lol

Im feeling ok the pain in my mouth is terrible its like having had the first few layers of skin stripped away from my mouth, with big sores to boot.. but thus far im still smiling.

I had my belly laugh today too, a nurse changed my dressing and all was good except she asked that bloody stupid question… ‘does it hurt’ I squeked ‘have you seen it, of course it bloody hurts’ she laughed her head off… she then cleaned the wound. I said ‘ look’ and I moved my hand causing my tendon to move, she squeeked…. then laughed an amazingly contagious laugh… still laughin she tried to tell me how gross it was, but she was laughing so I was happy. I love making people laugh and smile.

Above was today’s nurse with the contagious laugh. And below this is the night team. Who I will probably see alot of as my fluids and feed must stop at 2am in.prep for surgery.


I took this pic during handover.

Im feeling really positive this evening, I spoke to the kids and to g and generally im feeling ok so smiles all round.

Oh and I met a lady in the bed opposite, shes lovely, suffers from nausea terribly and her cancer is being managed rather than cured, but from what I’ve seen it won’t be stopping her, she has long dark hair with a bright pink bit, now I wish I had the guts I would love a purple strip or 2 in my hair, proper purple. But who would I get to do it ? Food for thought

Loads and loads of happy smiles, loves and hugs.

  1. I’d be quite happy to stick a purple streak in your hair for you!! I love the arrow on your arm – I would have thought that the wacking great hole in your arm would have been a big enough clue as to which arm they were operating on, but obviously not!! I was really impressed with the staff on the ward today, so it’s good that you can have a laugh with the nurses. Good luck tomorrow xxx


  2. Not been able to catch up with what’s been going on for a while, sorry to hear things haven’t been so good for you – will say a prayer that all goes well for the op tomorrow (?today actually as it’s silly o’clock)

    Sending big hugs – now if I was down there I’d be in to see you like a shot – love a bit of gruesome stuff so watching your tendon move would be just AWESOME pmsl!!!

    Be good & try not to cause too many problems or too much hilarity.

    Sending big big hugs xoxox


  3. you are so brave and amazing to keep smiling and laughing through all you go through. after what you are going through you really, really dont need the CRPS aswell. wouldnt wish the crps on my own worst enemy, and especially not you.
    big gentle hugs xx
