The one about the boobs!!!

Hello folks, I feel as if it has been a long time since I've updated - should have really put up my thoughts pre-hospital but que sera.

Needless to say I am now out and so far, everything is going as planned - I HAVE TWO BOOBS! (Granted one of them is really bruised but it's a boob none the less!)

The operation was bigger than I imagined it would be. Eight and a half hours in surgery, two different procedures performed by two of the UK's (if not the worlds) most gifted surgeons. These men are geniuses. As opposed to getting a silicon implant they actually swung a muscle from my back, under my and along my ribs and layered it  with tissue from my abdomen. This means that I will actually be able to 'workout' my right pec,  which is incredible because a fortnight ago i didntt have one!

I was bed bound for five days under explicit insttrctionn not to move my arm - which basically meant i was stationary for 120 hours, easy enough?

Try it.

I have a new found understanding and respect for people who have to live that way. Day three was possibly the most depressing day of my life! But lets not get into that.

I cant move on without singing the praises of the nursing staff on Ward 48 - all of them, every single one! The care and compassion that they show each and every person that passes through that ward is incredible. It genuinely restores my faith in humanity when I think about how incredible they all are.

I have heard it said that "Doctors save lives, nurses save doctors". I dont think that is good emough. Nurses very rarely get given the respect they are due. They study to degree level, they spend the most time with the patient, apply the most amount of care and in my honest opinion, they have the biggest impact on the patients recovery.

I dont name names on my site, luckily I dont have to...

\Thank you all!

Right. Writery stuff now. I managed to hit most of my deadlines (though being bed bound didnt help!) and knocked a few hundred out here and there. Also read two books on screen writing and Assassin is really taking shape - it is quickly becoming my primary project now the manuscript is away!

Anyways,  doing this all one handed (no my other hand is not doing that) so I will leave it at that just now. Hoppefully get some more strenth bback in my other arm and get some writing done next week!

Oh, by  the way! What is the most random response you've ever received/given to the below questtion?

"Where do you see yourself in the future?"

...just curious lol, answers to my FB, Twitter or E-mail

Til next time folks,

"Take chances live for risks and follow your heart til it finds release. And know your dreams knnow no boundaries...they only lack belief!"

  1. oh my! You weren't joking about the boob job! Has Pamela been knocked off her top spot? Should we get you a red floatation device, and matching swimsuit? Glad to hear it all went well, and it sounds like you've recovered from the ordeal.

    I think being bedbound would drive me crackers too!
