Thanks everyone .
Not much Has happened, But I am being transferred to another hospital for the op soon.
Had a dietician :mad: up the other day wanting me to have a full English brekkie everyday and wanted to put me on Fortsip because it was full of vitamins I refused as it’s full of calories which I don’t need .
The staff here are very kind and caring.

Why do dieticians always seem to be so clueless? :confused: If you need vitamins, can't they just give you vitamins?

I hope the staff at the new hospital are also kind and caring, and that the op goes as well as it's possible to go x
What will they do about your Dad while you're having the op, is he staying where he is?

Hi and thanks everyone.
I’m doing ok but poor righty isn’t, I’m only in a tiny bit of pain thanks to my peri feral Neuropathy, but I noticed the other day that lefty seems to have full feeling back .

I’ve given up on the lower carb thing whilst in hospital , for one thing the food is scrumptious.
I had chicken curry with RICE annnnd chocolate sponge pud with custard that will keep them running for the bed pans lol

I sure don’t like having my tonsils tickled and my nose poked
I had hours of coughing the other day that’s why it was done.

My dad is now home alone , he was so pleased , however being the stubborn so and so that he is he wouldn’t let the carer in and got himself in a right pickle
Kept phoning me to sort it out , I could do a bit but it’s difficult when bed bound in hospital.
But now he has realised that I can’t help him much now and he is trying hard to do things himself
Bless him, I try to order a hot dinner to be delivered everyday .


I’m actually feeling quite well .had that lovely Oxycodal (sp) again this morning coz my leg had to be re dressed, I hardly felt la thing.

I hope you are all ok , take care

Hi Lin,
I haven’t been on the forum for a while. Sorry to hear you are in hospital. I know It’s too hard to do low or reduced carb in hospital as I found the most edible stuff was high carbs like jacket potatoes and mash, beans etc but you are the first person to ever say that the food is scrumptious!!
I know it’s impossible to sleep much due to noisy patients, equipment and being woken for tests just when finally dozed off. Plus the Total lack of privacy and I nearly lost all my marbles. So hold onto yours and I hope you recover and get home soon x

The 'like' was for the Libre, not the imminent Op! I hope all goes well on Monday.

Fingers crossed that the operation is successful on Monday and you can begin to heal. Good to know you have the Libre.
