Notes from my hospital bed ...

Sorry I haven't blogged for a while, I've been a wee bit busy ...
My sexy post-op leg attire. (And if you thought that looked like a bum, you are just sick!)

The view out of my window the morning after the morning after...

 It wasn't all bad. There were presents. Like this pretty, from my big sister.

A hand-made love-heart bowl made by Mr 11 

It says I Heart U on one side and Mum on the other. So sweet.

It looks great with all the hand-made goodies they've knitted and plaited for me to wear for good luck, whilst in hospital - necklaces and friendship bracelets. Who needs Chanel, or even Brad Pitt, when you have woollen necklaces knitted by the home-scented rugrats I ask you?

See how well it looks with a tiny pillow-pet, lent to me, just in case I need something soft to cuddle at night?

In all honesty, the surgery has been painful and tiring. So I was particularly interested in the post-op instructions ...

Particularly those in the first two weeks. I'm talking about the part that reads: for the first 2 weeks following your surgery it is important that YOU DO NOTHING. Nothing more than potter around the house and make cups of tea. I think I can manage that quite nicely.

In fact the physio told me I was to lift nothing heavier than a litre of milk in those first two weeks, and walk no further than the kitchen or bathroom.

Hmm, I wonder how much a laptop weighs?

Oh Bronnie, you poor thing! Get well soon and I hope that you're feeling 100% in no time!

P.S. I saw a bum. Sorry!
