Firstly thank you all for your lovely comments and concerns for my absence.
I can assure you it was one that was forced upon me.
As you know from my last post I was a little unwell and my (wonderful) new doctor insisted I see a consultant asap. The appointment arrived 4 days after his request.
On arriving for my appointment and speaking to my consultant, I was promptly admitted to hospital and surgery followed 3 days later.
It appears I had a septic mass that needed removing straight away.
So I am now missing my appendix, an ovarian cyst and my right ovary which had all fused together and were in no fit state.
After a 11 day stay in hospital I was allowed home earlier this week and have been drugged up and looked after by the family.
I will be out of action for approximately 12 weeks, no lifting, no driving, no anything, which after being the one who runs round doing everything is really strange.
And whilst I know I'm not up to doing anything at the moment, it's going to be so hard once I start to feel a little better.
My family have been golden, rallying together and rushing round to make sure I always had visitors (The only thing that keeps you sane during your stay in hospital) and someone with me at home too.
I can't thank them enough.
As for the hospital and medical care I received it was first rate.
You hear so many horror stories about hospitals but all the nurses, doctors, consultants and surgeons were amazing.
Normal blogging will at some point will resume but in the meantime I look forward to catching up with all the blog posts I missed.
