Today is day nine after my big op and I'm now home and resting well.
It's my Mum's birthday today and the anniversary of my Dad passing away 25 years ago. Our family always have a celebration for my Mum and a toast to my Dad on this day. Happy and a bit sad too. We can't do that this year but my Mum came up to visit me this morning.
First time I'd seen her for five weeks as she's been on a cruise with her sister coming home the day after my op but with a bad cough so didn't come near me til today understandably. It was so lovely to see her face and I had a bit of a cry.
My husband was having a shower when mum arrived so he wasn't aware that she was here. Imagine his embarrassment when he walk out of our bedroom 'stark naked' only to run back again with an exclamation of surprise when he spotted my mum sitting just behind the door. Some birthday present hey, my husband in his birthday suit!
I laughed so hard I don't think it was good for me but it was an hilarious moment. Nothing that Mum hasn't seen before obviously but not of Ian. Oh well. It only goes to show we don't have to lose our sense of humour only hold our stomachs a little firmer.
I'm still improving every day and very very glad to be home.
Will post some details soon about the operation etc. but I still have a foggy head so need to get everything sorted out.
Love to you all
