What Day is it Anyway. July 28th.

Photos of blood , beware if you are screamish.

Well the last time I did a #WDIIA Was the 6th July 22days ago. So why have I decided to do one today and why have started with Annie Lennox and a Whiter Shade Of Pale. Well all will be revealed.

So it’s been even more samey for me because of the drain my ‘friend’ now for seven weeks! Basically awake at stupid o’clock, breakfast in bed if feeling good up by 10am if not between 11/12 pm …do a few jobs nothing taxing or heavy, read, blog, a walk round the block on hubby’s arm . Totally knackered by 9pm so back to bed. Sunday evening we have a virtual meet up with friends from up the road, but apart from a few friends/ family socially distancing in the garden it’s just been hubby and me. We have had hospital visits and a couple of trips to the surgery to have my drain dressing changed. Heavily masked up and socially distanced.

So what’s different today?

Went to the hospital today for me to gave a Fluoroscopy. It was painful! I was surprised I am usually okay with discomfort.
Also I am loosing blood now because the Dr said she had disturbed everything. So now I have a bleed to keep an eye on. I am praying it will stop on it own without the need to go to hospital for that awful clotting drug or worse blood.
Unfortunately the drain cannot come out because the massive stone is still blocking the neck of the gall bladder which is not draining on its own at all.
The surgeons have to. Review the fluoroscopy and then get intouch with me again to organise an appointment to organise the removal of drain and gall bladder.

So I have gone from this seven weeks ago

Hense the opening song: A Whiter Shade Of Pale.

Plus Hubby’s brother is being awkward again about MIL’s estate? Why when neither of hubby’s siblings want to help and leave it all to him to do, do they cause trouble??

All that is leaving us exhausted!

Anway it’s time for a happy song. I think we need one today!

Right no more moans 🎶The Only Way Is Up Baby🎶

    Sending you positive energy for an easy resolution to your medical strife. In my experience being in pain is just as emotionally draining as it is physically.
    I never heard this artist or the song. It was great. Thanks for the upbeat song.

    I sympathize both for the medical stuff and the mil stuff. It’s amazing to me how relatives turn into vultures after someone’s death. Good luck in all

    Thoughts are with you Willow. I’m glad my drain was only in for a week after my surgery, though it was totally different of course. Hopefully they can get you sorted soon.

      Thank you Kat it is dragging on but I am doing my best to stay positive. This morning I am as weak as a kitten and then the bag came loose earlier I managed to fix it, luckily the drain is still in place . Thinking of you all. 💜😀😀😀

    I know some of your pain but not quite the extent. I was very ill with a sick gall bladder that lasted 2 years before I took control & said no more. For me, I had to fire all my doctors and find a surgeon. After a few months of recovery, I’ve been great! That was 7 years ago. I pray for your wellness! 💜
