but I can’t write, sorry
Filed under Flowers
I like your glasses.
I wasn’t sure about them so that’s good to hear!
Maybe you can’t write, but we know you smell good!
Except when I was moved from the bed today and smelled the sweat reek from my back..,
The nursing staff all smell really good though. I am surprised. Either just well showered and shampooed or actually perfumed. One smells a bit like Feminite du Bois!
That is surprising! I remember you commented that Japanese culture is not big on perfume/scents. It’s a mystery for you to uncover! Sometimes the drugs used create unusual body odors. I have experienced this. And they may also altar the sense of smell…
Oh yes. My next post will be about this very thing I think! Me being me, the whole experience is already saturated with scent memories, good and bad.
Can’t wait! To your continued improvement!
Alive is the main thing. We can wait for the writing. Cute pic!
I was writing in my head right up to the very moment I went under but even replying here feels difficult. I appreciate the comments though so want to!
I was writing in my head right up to the very moment I went under but even replying here feels difficult. I appreciate the comments though so want to! The first 24 hours were sheer hell. I am completely disabled, which is shocking to accept, but my spirits are up and I INTEND to recover fully!
Eyes on the prize, buddy. You did this to achieve something, and focus on that goal. You will be walking towards what is awaiting you. It won’t be easy. Just do it.
Well, hey there, Gimpy. How you feeling?
This is my approach. Bending is Nightmare but it simply MUST be done. My physio is this very sweet young Japanese woman : it’s a bit like the newt ( was it?) and the hippo in Walt Disney’s Fantasia.
I came back to myself a bit today. The first day was just morbid horror.
Alive is good. Sending you good thoughts for a full and speedy recovery.
Alive is great news!
Thanks people x
Looking good Neil! I am so glad the operation is behind you. Now on to the rehab. You will be happy you did it eventually. Most of the people I know who had that op are ecstatic about the results…but I would bet none of them smelled as good as you. Happy Healing.
In truth, it is now Thursday and I haven’t moved since Monday: I can’t claim to smell too good right now but bergamot oil is fending off some of the stench..
Alive is good! Happy healing …
It is a fascinating process whose effects I am dying to experience quickly, but I know I must be patient.
Mazeltov on alive. You look remarkably good for someone in a hospital!
With that colour?!
I never quite knew what beautiful eyes and eyebrows you have. They quite make up for the colour. (I just saw Now You See Me 2 and your brows are almost as good as Dave Franco’s.)
I have never thought about eyebrows before, really. I am not into plucked and overly groomed anything ( but looking here I notice a hair that does need to be pulled out!)
I have followed your blog for years.
I’m an ex nurse of 40 years. I know what you are going through.
Cheers from Adelaide, South Australia.
I have nothing but the deepest respect for people of your profession.
Nice to see you – to see you, nice!
I’ve been thinking of you, and I am so glad to see you posting post-op, looking very elegant in your hospital greens! Rest, rehabilitate, and write when you can.
I will try to, but I don’t have the internet, only my phone, which is much harder to write a real piece on. I am sure I will anyway.
And yes, I must say I rather like these pale jade greens..
Good to see you alive. Hope you are ok, all things considered. R
Glad all is OK…hope they’re pumping you full of body numbing comforting drugs 🙂
Japan is VERY stingy in that regard!
And they told me there was an epidural pump I could use…. turns out it was empty.
The ones they do give me though make me slightly hallucinate. If you thought I was mad before, you would NOT want to enter my head now !
