Okay my darlings
So this is the current situation for those of you that aren’t on my FB feed :
Just over a week post surgery, I started feeling less than wonderful. The pain relief wasn’t. Relieving that is.
Initially I put it down to prolonged sitting at the kitchen table with visitors on Sunday, but as discomfort segued into pain and a total lack of sleep, I realised it probably wasn’t that.
Without going into icky details, it was pretty obvious by Monday morning, that I was brewing an infection, and after a phone confab with the hospital, I presented at the GP’s just after they opened. Bugger this phoning for an appointment lark.
I have some form of wound infection, most probably MRSA ( still awaiting pathology results to confirm ) and I’m being treated on that basis with mega doses of appropriate antibiotics.
Using my patented knitting based Wellness Index which ranges from
1: Cannot summon up the energy to even think about anything yarn related
10: Knits complicated lace in fine yarn on thin needles
I have spent most of the week hovering around 1.5 ( thinks about knitting, possibly picks up needles, but puts them down again fairly soon thereafter )
Yesterday I made it all the way up to up to 2 ( mindless strip of simple pattern, in this case moss stitch )
But nothing that makes for good blogging.
I’m attempting to behave myself. Pills. Couch potatoing. Nadie’s iPad. Facebook. Catching up on other people’s blogs that I have shamefully neglected of late
… And at least I’m not back in ‘ospital on a drip
