Double Ouch!


I did it again. Poor Robyn.

I was ill for thanksgiving, my Mum was ill for Christmas. Just when Easter looked safe my back decided to die on me.

I pretty much collapsed with pain and only just made it the few paces back to the armchair where I sat in agony for about 15 hours.

Oh, let me tell you I'm good with pain. I normally laugh at pain.

Not this time.

After sitting in an armchair all night I eventually phoned the emergency Doctor service. Luckily I was right in my decision not to go to Accident and Emergency. If I'm honest the bumpy trip in an ambulance, the 4 hours waiting and then being told to take a taxi home on a bank holiday adds up to about 8 hours of agony and nothing to show for it.

If I'd needed an operation there probably wouldn't have been anyone to do it for me; it's Easter, of course.

The Doctor has prescribed me some particularly frightening painkillers and I've managed to ruin Robyn's Easter for her.

If I can get my operation sorted out (and that means if I can ever make it to hospital) I'm sure this Blog will get back to something like it's old self.

In the meantime the Easter Bunny got cancelled.
