Hospital update

I’m almost normal, well as normal as I can be.

I’m so sorry that I made you all worry. It’s been a difficult few days for me and my family.

The focus is now on getting me well and home again but the infection has felt me without feeling and movement in most limbs. I’m working so hard to get this back as I can’t cope not being to move, hold a cup, go to the loo myself etc etc

I will update the blog when I can. Please for the next few days just give my loved ones some space as they are trying to balance work, me, worry and hospital visits.

I’m over the worst of the infection now so it’s just all about recovery.

One final big demand is no flowers, When I get out of here if there is one flower in my house, they will say who they are from and I will hunt you down!!!!  If you want flowers buy them for you, not me, oh and no presents either – okay – deal

Good I’m glad we got that sorted out then. Your love and support everyday via comments and messages is all I need however it may take a while to get round to answering you all but I will, you know I will.

  11. Don’t need a reply just to say know you want to go home but just let them look after you and rest.Feel for your family too but at least they know you are being looked after.Love as always Exex.

  12. Delighted you’ve had the energy to blog. Obviously I’ve been worried about you but also really worried about your poor family. Don’t try and overdo the recovery, you’ll only end up worse and feeling battered and bruised. You’re going to have to learn to avoid contact with people who are around young children a lot and also behave like The Queen. No hugs, kisses etc and if you do want to shake hands, a nice little set of white gloves, methinks, lol! Can’t somehow see you in those. 🙂

    Anyway, take care and I’m sure they’re doing their best to look after you in SMH. They were very good to Ian last year. Just blog when you’re ready to and feel the get well vibes coming from us all. Xxxxxxxxx

  13. Dear Wendy , so so pleased that you are feeling a little better. Just want to send my love and lots of hugs . You are a true fighter,keep going girl. Xxxxx

  14. Hi love glad you are over the worst. Sounds like a horrible infection. I wished I could magic it all away from you. Love to you all as always. Xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
