Fifty Shades of Black and Blue......


My minor op on Tuesday went well

The anticipation of these things is always worse than than the reality, although being able to hear scissors cutting through tissue and muscle was a tad disconcerting.

I have a couple of stitches, which will be removed next week, and the discomfort has eased considerably...... however there is still quite a bit of swelling and, if anything, the bruising is spreading up and around the eye....


Not a pretty sight.....

I really hope it improves before next weekend and the Thame Fair, otherwise I'll have to resort to wearing dark glasses.  PP has suggested going the whole hog and bandaging my head too so that I look like the Invisible Woman.  It's amazing how other people's misfortune always provides an endless fund of hilarity.....

To further add to my woes, I still have raging toothache.  My trip to the dentist on Wednesday yielded no help beyond a supply of heavy duty antibiotics, which are making no difference whatsoever.  I have to wait till 25th for my next appointment when I will be 'reviewed', probably with a view to root canal treatment.

As you can imagine I'm REALLY looking forward to that.....

*deep, heartfelt sigh*
