Just a quick hospital update about Paula...

I've heard from Paula today. The physio has had her out of bed and walking but she is still suffering rather a lot of pain so she has had to increase her Morphine and other analgesia but as most of you will know these all come with side effects they don't always warn you about so laxatives have been prescribed too. I sometimes think it is not good to know everything before having these major operations or maybe you would think twice. She has asked me to thank you all for your very kind wishes and send you lots of love. Hopefully she will be back up and running very soon but, for now, every day has to be little steps of steady progress.

She did send me a photo of her wound but I promise I won't share that with you all....all I will say is ouch!!

It has taken me a while to catch up with blogs this week so I have only just found this. I had a very good friend who had to be on morphine long-term (and I know intricate details of the side-effects!) but several months on he is absolutely fine and back to being himself - in the middle of it all you wonder if the discomfort will ever end, but it does, and I do wish Paula well in her recovery and hope it is a quick one xx
