A Day at The Hospital

Thank you to those who wished me well with my hospital appointment today, it was very much appreciated as i was a bit apprehensive, mainly thinking of where they were going to put the camera :-o Apparently i have a polyp, which has been causing my body to do strange things each month, (ladies you know what I'm talking about here, lol). My daughter found it very funny last night that i was shaving my legs (along with.... ahem, other bits) and slapping cream onto my feet! The reason behind which was that they would be 'on show' while i was out cold in the theatre, Joanne was quick to remind me that "they're not going to be looking at your feet and legs mother!" at least i was knocked out with the knowledge that i was smooth footed and hair free :-) Anyway, i feel fine, went to the theatre at 10am and was back on the ward by 11am, they even fed me while i was there!, shepherds pie, roast potatoes & veg with apple sponge & custard to follow!, I've been in as a day case before and only ever got a slice of toast, so i was pleasantly surprised. To pass the time i finished reading Stephanie Meyer's New Moon, I'm still not altogether sure about these books, i enjoyed it & Twilight but I'm not completely sold, yet. There is a bit too much waffling at times, that said i do intend to finish the series.

Right now I'm off to watch what is left of afternoon TV and stitch on my ABC which has been neglected in favour of Simply Live the last couple of weeks. Speaking of which, thank you Karen & Kathy for e-mailing your addresses for the Travelling Pattern, if anyone else is still interested in this you can read all about it in my last post.

I'll leave you with a photo of my ABC, hopefully i will get lots more done on this over the next couple of days as i have the rest of the week off work :-)

Friday will be a happy dance day as my Simply Live will be back from the framers :-) so till then, happy stitching & take care...Tara-a-bit x

Edited Note: should have mentioned that the polyp was removed and so everything should settle back to normal, the camera is so they can have a proper look around and take a sample to analyse. I won't have to have any further treatment.

Nice to have Simply Live to look forward to after having the procedure done. Good that it is over and you are back home. What are they going to do about the polyp? I cannot believe your food at the hospital. I had yucky food when I had to be in isolation. They tried but that is as far as it goes. I love Shephard's Pie!!!

Your sampler is looking great. You and I can be behind on it together. I really need to pick it up again too. Why not join Margaret, Annemarie and I with our slow MW SAL?

And by the way, I believe you can never know about your daughters. They may pick up their needlework when they get older. I hope so anyway. I hate to think of this generation not appreciating such beauty. Thanks for sharing your thoughts. I love reading what you shared.

Hugs ~

Oooh, your WIP looks great! Glad you had a good experience at the hospital.

Jan said...

Glad the hospital procedure is behind you and they were able to remove the polyp that was causing the angst! Looking forward to seeing your wips and Simply Live framed! Cool!

Unknown said...

Yeah, THAT procedure is definately not one of the nicest. Did you have to drink all that "tasty" stuff before hand to clean out your colon? I think that is even worse than the procedure. So glad everything went okay!

Mylene said...

Glad to hear all went well with the procedure and good food too. My experience with food at the hospital weren't that good.

Great progress on the sampler.

Kim B said...

I'm glad to hear your procedure went well! I shaved my legs before heading to the hospital to deliver DD. It just helps!

Maggie, I am so glad things went well and that you're returning to normal! Awesome progress and I can't wait to see the framed Simply Live!

Branlaadee said...

Maggie, I am glad your procedure went well and you are back home now. I dont blame for for the shaving and lotioning. I did that when I went to get my gallbladder out. Then they put socks on my feet and they never even saw them. LOL

Your ABC is beautiful! I cant wait to see live simply when it gets back from the framer.

Siobhán said...

Oh, can't wait to see your Simply Live! Your WIPs are lovely.

I'm glad to hear that all went well with the surgery. Take care and rest up!

Kathy said...

I'm so glad the procedure went smoothly. Too funny about the shaving. LOL (I did the same thing before my gall bladder surgery. Only they made me take the polish off my toes. LOL)

Have a great stitching week.

Loraine said...

So glad you were able to get your surgery over with, and that all went well!

I have the same thoughts about the twilight series. I enjoyed them, but felt the same way, that there was too much waffling going on. That actually disturbed me some, as I felt bad for both of the male characters.

Your ABC is looking wonderful! I love this pattern, and you are really tempting me to download it and put it in my stash! Beautiful color choices.

Looking forward to seeing Simply Live framed, and for the SAL.

Have a great day! Many Hugs and get well wishes!

Karan said...

I can so relate to the preparations you made - just what I'd do! ROFL Glad all went well - enjoy the rest & recuperation.
Love your ABC piece & can't wait to see your next update. Looking forward to the start of the travelling pattern too. :0)

Tammy said...

I had a year or two where I had several medical procedures done---always made sure I got a pedicure, lol. Tell your daughter yes they do look at your feet! Pretty WIP !

Cindy F. said...

I'm glad your hospital appointment went well. I laughed when I read the part about shaving your legs, I did exactly the same when I went for my appointment recently!!

Just take one day at a time and I am sure all goes well. (I am writing "from the future", so that's why the weird comments.)
