Good Morning Everyone!
I hope your week is going well!
I've had quite an eventful week.
On Sunday evening my stomach swelled up.
By 10 pm I was in excruciating pain!
I spent the night in pain and vomiting.
I lasted till 4 am and then gave in and contacted
the 111 helpline.
They informed me I would need to see a dr
within 2 hours.
Just over an hour later the dr rang and said
I should see a dr but as I didn't have transport
it would be at least 2 hours before they could come.
So he decided I should go to A&E and informed
me I would have to go by ambulance.
I had woken D up at this point as I couldn't
do anything for the pain.
I rang my dad and got him to come to take
Red Monster to school.
The ambulance arrived 1 1/2 hrs later.
When we arrived there weren't any beds so
they put my in resus.
This worked out better for me as the dr
was on hand.
They gave me lots of pain meds, took bloods etc.
They then informed me it was probably gallstones.
The drs have the budget now so I was sent home
and told to see my dr.
I see them on Thursday, then I have to wait for a scan
and then I have to wait for treatment.
I have heard it can be 4 months before you get sorted :-(.
So I am dosed up and praying the pain doesn't
come back as bad.
They said if it does I've to go back to A&E for stronger
pain meds, I've got to do this until I get treatment.
Things are really different in the NHS now.
The staff were brilliant but they have to work
with the budget and bureaucracy that is there.
On a brighter note I have to rest
so I have been doing a little making.
I have finally finished my sheep pincushion.
You'll have to wait till Sunday for that.
I have decided to follow the book:
Learn to Knit Block by Block
from Search Press
from Search Press
I'm just making my first block
I am listening to Percy Jackson
The Lightning Thief
I wish I had read the book before watching the film.
I'm still enjoying it and I love that there is
so much more to the story and character in the book.
I am planning on learning quite a bit more.
I am setting aside time to try and follow
my Craftsy classes etc.
I am hoping once I do that I'll be
designing even more for you.
I miss designing.
Now it's your turn to share what you are doing.
