Reasons to be Cheerful - I've had my Operation!

Happy Thursday, I hope you are well.

I had to write this and get it scheduled on Tuesday as Wednesday at 7.30am I went to the hospital for my scheduled operation and who knows what time they would get around to doing it, so the last thing I needed was to be worrying about getting my R2BC post out.

Hopefully if you are reading this Thursday morning (or after) I am lying in bed recovering from the operation and the general anaesthetic that came with it. I'm secretly really looking forward to Thursday and Friday being down days where I just read, watch TV and get waited on!

On the one hand I was nervous for the operation as they always scare you when you meet the consultant in advance and they tell you what could go wrong but I have put my faith in God and know that whatever happens will come to good.

I'm so thankful that we have our NHS in the UK. Of course it isn't perfect and in some areas it is better than others but I've been lucky and had great service from the Conquest hospital and especially my GP surgery. I really can't praise my local GP's enough, they have fit me in at short notice and gone out of their way to make sure my operation can go ahead.

My hope is that after this operation my monthly menstrual bleeding will ease to just a regular flow, over a normal 7 day period. I'll stop being folic acid and iron anaemic and I can get back to having full energy; exercising regularly and watching what I eat to ensure I become a healthy weight.

This should be more achievable as I also received my orthotic insoles last week and they are already helping with the pain in my feet, which means I can exercise more. It is the little things like this that all add up and can make a difference.

Anyway that's enough for this week. My operation is over and I'm recovering and I'm looking forward to the future.

Be blessed this week ahead.  Mich x
