I know I said I was abandoning this blog, but I figured that it was easier to post here because this is where people are reading.
Yes, I am home. No, I am not better and no, it is not business as usual. I am still in a lot of pain and still recovering.
A few people have mistakenly assumed that because I am home that I am suddenly “on” or “available” and that I can just continue where I left off. That is not the case. I still have a good month before I start to feel normal again. I can’t sit in one place for longer than about 40 minutes before I need to sit somewhere else. My head is foggy and I can’t really concentrate, and if I don’t reply on an IM, it is not because I am a bitch, it is because everyone jumps on me the second I go online.
I appreciate that people care, I really do, but I just can’t chat for long periods of time. I can’t concentrate enough to post a blog and as much as I want to, I can’t focus enough to do my Uni work or much else. So please, if I appear online, please don’t jump on me. And if I don’t reply, please don’t follow up or get pissed. Its the little things that upset me at the moment and the computer is my only source of outside world contact.
I love that everyone cares about me, but when I wake up having accidentally left Trillian on and there are 20 messages with “hello are you there” waiting for me, I am in pain, its just not a good start to my day. :)
So please, just be patient. Especially this week, as Jason is going back to work and I am here with the kids on my own and frankly I don’t know how I am going to cope. But, I should be fine as long as people are a bit more patient with me.
Thanks muchly :)
Tealou arrived back at her home at 10.30 Tuesday. She still has a lot of recovery to go but it is good to have her back where she belongs, with her family. I’m sure she will be back to her old self real soon.
Not quite there yet. Tealou is still has two IV’s going and is unable to eat anything.
Tealou is understandably very frustrated and is longing to leave the hospital as soon as possible. That is hopefully going to be around Tuesday next week. Unfortunately that means that she will miss seeing Ben Elton live on Sunday. Tealou has been a life long fan of Ben Elton and has wished for years to have the opportunity to see him live on stage.
Thankyou for your continued support.
Just playing a waiting game. The IV will most likely be out on Wednesday and I will be weaneed to normality and discharged by the end of the week.
I wont be posting here anymore, as I will be writing a detailed post back on Lou.com when I get home.
Thanks SO much everyone and I will fill you all in when I get home.
Which effectively means that my lung is almost perfect!
Its a contraption that exercises my lungs and measures volume etc.
Its a great contraption because it encrouages us A Types to exercise ourselves with it AND get that dark blue ball.
And today, I got it.
Just another small but very significant personal milestone. Dnt have y camera but will get a piture to show y’all soon.
Not much new to report today. It was great to see Tealou pop out and say hello yesterday. She says that she is a bit to tired to say hello today but ya never know when she will feel the pinch and dial up.
Right now we are just waiting to see if that ‘leak’ in her stomach heals up. Once that heals the rest of her body should follow the stomachs example and heal too.
As you can see, Tealou is in high spirits and hopes to be out of hospital by this time next week.
Thanks to everybody for your support, it’s almost hard to believe that only a week ago I was forced into accepting that there was a chance I would never see Tealou at home again.
