and breath!

So I have been bonkers busy and hence not posting.

The hospital called back finally about Fahed broken shoulder and foot, we saw a (real) doctor. All is good. I am not sure of the catastrophic life changing injuries that the first doctor described but Fahed seems fine and improving by the day despite the lack of operation on it.

And then the hospital called again and said that had a space fro Fahed for his back surgery a month early. So he has been in hospital all of this last week but already great progress. We can go anywhere or do anything as no sitting, standing or walking for more than 10 minutes but already he feels improvement.

My mums operation wasn't successful sadly, had to be abandoned part way through at risk to lose a leg (eek!). They are meeting to discuss options but I dont think much happens. She is 88 and her veins are like little bits of cotton so nothing much they can do without ripping everything, sadly.

So my neck says I am still seriously stressed out but I do think its improving. This week is Jamals driving test and three weeks until his exam, so another couple of things off my 'to worry about list'. Why am i worrying about the driving test? Because Jamal would really like to ride a motorbike and I would really like him not to, so I very much want to get him straight in to cars!

I had a gift of 6kg of plums from my dad , which i have used to start off some wine. About 3 gallons of wine actually.  So lets hope that is a success could I feel i could really do with a drink at the moment!!


  1. Hang in there girl. Sorry about your mom.

  2. Sorry about your Mum. Getting old really stinks. Glad to hear Fahed is feeling better. That's a lot to overcome but improved health is certainly worth it in the long run.

  3. Wow, lots going on. Happy to hear of Fahed's earlier surgery date and no surgery needed for his shoulder. Didn't realize your Mom was due for surgery as well. Hope the procedure didn't take too much from her. Yes, you deserve a good strong drink!
