I want my back to heal…

…because then I could be rid of nurses, lolol

I’m having reactions to everything they put on my back, getting mixed messages from them every day and now – over two weeks after I had surgery – the bloody wound-which-will-not-heal is infected and hurting like a bugger.

They’ve also told me I have to go to a treatment centre from now on – though I’m arguing that. Me bouncing around on a bus with this leaky hole in my back? No sooner had they dressed it then I’d get home on a bus and it would need dressing again. It’d be a vicious circle and I’d never be out of the place *sigh*

Just seriously pissed off today *sigh*

Back, part two

Crappy, crappy, crappy Orange.  No sooner were we back on line, than it was down again.  The Ent ranted for a week, somebody pulled their finger out somewhere, and now we’re back again. Yay.  We were both seriously in withdrawal, lol

On the kidney front, I have only one hole left and it’s being a bugger and refusing to heal.  Practically all the pain is gone, but I have to restrict movements as everything seems to keep this bloody thing open.

And writing… I can give the hint of another sale, this time to Ellora’s Cave: Exotika 😀  I still have to sort out the details, and write a blurb, so more soon.

Now, I’m off to surf, surf, write and surf…

Back, back and back

WordPress lost my post *grrr*

Our internet connection is back after being off when I was in hospital.

My back has three holes in it and I’m finally flushing out the last of the morphine *blech*. And I’m back home, yay. I feel better without the constant fear of infection and now I’ll have the chance to have a proper sleep. I was only in there from Monday night, but it feels like forever *sigh*

The district nurse will be round tomorrow to change my dressings, which is another relief.

Me + blood = passed out Kim

S-l-o-w connections

Our internet went down on Friday. It’s just after a Bank holiday here so it always buggers up *sigh* We think the engineers go in to make double or triple time and always mess up our connection…

So, I’m in the library, using IE *blech* and having the slowest connection ever.

I also have to go into hospital today – just waiting on a time – and my surgery is tomorrow.

Wish me luck!

Personal Writing Challenge ~ Update

My respiratory tract infection didn’t – hasn’t gone away. So I’ve been feeling fairly crappy for a month. It’ll be a joy at some point to actually stop coughing. Because of this, my kidney surgery didn’t go ahead and I’ve asked if it can be scheduled after Christmas. It’s elective and the surgeon’s secretary seemed fine with that.

So to take my mind of continuously coughing, I’ve been writing. Mostly it’s been on Wolf-blood, which stands at 23k. I’ve also been slogging my way through the edits of Lost Gods. I love this story, but edits are hard. I have to think so much more than when I’m writing, lol, and my brain is mostly mush at the minute.

So my total since I started the Personal Writing Challenge is: 250 506. Which in three weeks is: 34 289. This probably has everything to do with the character of Fitz. He’s kept me occupied and distracted from coughing, lol for a fortnight now.

Personal Writing Challenge – Update

So…the first week of the PWC and I’ve managed to write – OMG – 10 890. Wow. I didn’t think it was quite that much, lol

I may get more written in October than I thought too, as my cough and cold has still not shifted. If I’m not fighting fit by next Tuesday, then my surgery won’t go ahead. And I have no clue how far into the future they’ll reschedule it *sigh*

I’m on a countdown

I had the joy of going to hospital again yesterday. 😀

We had to take the hobbits with us to the appointment and were severely tutted at my three generations of women in the waiting area. They had a genetic propensity for turning their noses up and their mouths down, so it probably wasn’t their fault that they had to complain 😉 And, well, Samwise is bloody annoying at the best of times.

The upshot is, my kidney surgery goes ahead on 30 September and I’ll be in hospital for about three or four days. Which will be fun. Then I’ll be a weakling for a good few weeks , vaguely waving a hand for cups of tea as I suffer on the couch watching oodles of Stargate Atlantis… hehe
