A different room with a view!

I’m home from hospital, I had my hyperparathyroidism surgery on Tuesday, and I must say there is nothing like being in your own bed, with your own duvet, and of course a cosy laptop helps too!

Don’t panic, no scary photos of scars, but here are a few unedited images from my iphone.

The part of the hospital I was in was modern with great views over the city!

Just my husband visited me on the first night, which was as well as I was still pretty groggy.

I was sitting up without any drips by the time the kids came to see me on the second day. My youngest was most impressed with the remote control bed and the mini tv.

However he was not keen on the scar on my neck, and kept well away. He declared I need to wear a scarf FOREVER!

After quite a delay I finally got home around 7pm on Day 3. There is definitely no place like home.

I’m planning to take it easy for a few days, then I’ll be back!

What have you been up to?
