Away in Hospital

If all has gone well and I haven't had a phone call from the hospital cancelling my operation, I am on the way to the hospital.  I have had to get up at 5 am even though I am on the afternoon operation list as I wasn't allowed to eat after that time.  It was stressed I did have to eat and drink then though.  I don't know how long I will be in but will not be able to do much when I come out.  This is the first of maybe three ops that I need.  I am hoping I don't need one of them.  I was aware I had problems but couldn't go anywhere about it as I knew I couldn't leave Tony on his own.  Even leaving him to pop over to the road to the shops was a problem.

I hope to be able to at least comment on your lovely creations soon even if I can't do much else.

This has been a bad couple of days for me.  Easter Sunday 16th was Tony's birthday - 17th a year ago the medical team forced me to tell him he was dying - today 18th is my operation and 20th would have been our Wedding Anniversary.
