I wrote this first bit on the 9th of April
Things are a bit crazy atm, I’m back in hospital with issues to do with my thyroid (you might remember my thyroid glands were destroyed by the radiotherapy) or possibly something entirety different.
Rewind to last week, I was doing great managing a bit of scrambled egg and baked beans most days and even progressed to mash potatoes. ….. and my ice cream of course.
Oh and cauliflower with my mash and the soggy bit of the Yorkshire pud (I was a bit/lot over ambitious with what I put on my plate lol)
So Wednesday I was feeling worn out as I hadn’t slept that night but it was a lazy day so no real problems. Wednesday night I slept really well as I recall and was up and sorted early as I had to do school run as G was working.
I had to drive to Stamford to go to the hospital for an unpleasant procedure, to widen my urethra! !!! But it was just a day case and once it was over so was the pain mostly. The traffic was bad on the way, so when I stopped at a petrol station I called the hospital to say I would be late… The lady I spoke to was very sweet and pretty much said, as long as it was still morning when I got there it would be fine. So I continue on the drive which I’ve done dozens of times and BANG, I’m being thrown back in my seat…. “what why how OUCH” are my initial thoughts. I had no idea what had happened. I was in shock..I just sat there, a woman came over to me and I opened my window, WERE YOU ON YOUR PHONE she demands, no-no its ( I go to point to it on the passenger seat but it’s been thrown into the foot well), “no my phone’s gone” I tell her. She asks what’s happened and I realised I had no idea. The crash happened between 2 roundabouts, and I don’t even remember going around the first….. i started feeling really panicky, having no recollection was scary and tbh still is, before long the ambulance and police are there. I was taken to hospital to get checked over and the police moved my car etc. In fairness everyone was amazing especially a friend who I called, I was so shaken up, she was amazing she just went into auto pilot and called hubsters work and she collected my children who incidentally adore her.
Due to my history and having neck pain this is how I looked
And the car. .m
Coming back up to date, I was released from hospital following the crash with just bruising, and from my stay with postural low blood pressure so nothing to worry about really.
Looking forward, the sky is the limit, I really want to enrol in some classes and want to make the effort to get out more. But for today I have washing to do heehee.
Here’s my latest video….
