I'm feeling better.
It's just over a month since my operation and at one stage a couple of weeks ago I thought I'd never feel well again. But I do!
I'm back in the swing of maintaining a household - cooking, cleaning, laundry - and, even though I still indulge myself with an afternoon sleep with two bichons acting as bookends, it's a good feeling to be able to bend and move once again.
The stomach drain comes out in two and a half day's time, after which I will be able to shower and bathe again. It's been a real bind having to do stand-up body washing at the basin.
All in all, I'm feeling better. Now if only it would stop raining.
