Well, I'm back from seeing the consultant at the hospital and he has confirmed that I will definitely need another operation on my shoulder and I'm booked in for surgery on the 19th of November.
I'm feeling very upset and sorry for myself at the moment and unfortunately Mr P is not here to cheer me up :( I know I', being a bit silly and that I need to have this operation done, but last time it was very painful, I had an allergic reaction to the morphine and I wasn't able to drive for two months, which when you live somewhere as rural as we do is going to be very tough! It looks like I'm going to have to do much of the Christmas shopping online this year!
I've just realised as well that the date of the operation means I'm going to miss meeting up with some friends at the end of November, which I was really looking forward too :(
Anyway, enough with feeling sorry for myself, I need to look on the bright side - hopefully this operation will cure the problems I've been having with my shoulder and neck and I will be able to get back to normal :)
I've had to drive to the hospital this afternoon as Mr P is away and my shoulder is really painful now so I'm going to run a hot bath, take some painkillers and snuggle up on the sofa with a ginormous bar of chocolate (sod the diet!), two gorgeous kittie cats and my "True Blood" novel which arrived this morning :) I'm loving this programme already and when I found out it was based on a series of books I knew I wanted to read them! I also got a copy of Cath Kidston's "Sew!" in the same package but I'm under strict instructions not to look at it as it's a birthday pressie for next week! Gonna be tough not peeking though...
