I'm Back!

Surgery appears to have been successful (at least insofar as I seem to be breathing and conscious) and I am at home. Recovery is proceeding quite a bit faster than I was anticipating, though I'm still in quite a bit of pain and walking is even slower than normal right now. About the only thing that isn't going better than I expected is the lack of support forthcoming from my mother who, despite solemn pronouncements before the op, has given not a word of sympathy or support and, yes you guessed it, has already begun complaining that I'm avoiding doing stuff for her.

Truly, the woman is a blight on my life.

You breathing and conscious is a good thing. I am pleased to hear of it.

The nature of the Bin is irrepressible.

Will you be well enough for some gentle partying in a fortnight?

Are you thinking of Maelfroth or something else?

Huzzah for breathing and being conscious! Both are useful transferable life skills.

If it's anything like it was when I had my appendix out, you'll quickly find that laughter isn't the best medicine. Avoid comedies, they hurt too much. :-)

Indeed, I am trying to avoid potentially humorous situations.

They fuck you up, your mum and dad.
They may not mean to, but they do.
They fill you with the faults they had
And add some extra, just for you.

But they were fucked up in their turn
By fools in old-style hats and coats,
Who half the time were soppy-stern
And half at one another's throats.

Man hands on misery to man.
It deepens like a coastal shelf.
Get out as early as you can,
And don't have any kids yourself.

Well done on the still breathing and conscious front. Long may it continue.

I'm glad to hear you're okay.

Breathing and conscious are normally pretty good indicators. Being able to type a coherent sentence is another one, so you seem on the mend already. Thats good to hear.

Support *sigh*, yes, well that a tough one for some people I guess. Do you ever get to complain when she is ill that she isn't doing stiff for you? It would only be fair.

Did you get the usual bunch of leaflets about recouperating from ops from the hospital? Do they do that anymore?
Just thought you could leave them lying about in a subtle way.
Or just tell mum that chores, etc, will have to wait until you get the all clear or she's going to be fending for herself again while you're back at the learsis centre.

It tends to be that, as age advances, we tend to get more self-centred (in the strict meaning of the phrase) - some more than others. 'Tis just the way of things, I guess. Old age can manifest remarkably like young childhood sometimes.

Stick to your guns, Bin, and pull faces at her, not stitches.

Very pleased to hear that the op is over and done, best wishes for your recovery. Re Mamas...as a general rule they are tougher than they ever let on. Look after yourself Mr Bin, and be very well.
