Thought I'd pop in for a minute - haven't been in here in way too long and I have missed lots but given I will be off work for the whole of May I'll have plenty of time to catch up.

Going into hospital tomorrow morning, and not looking forward to what I have to drink this afternoon to clean my insides out (I definitely won't go into details!). Apparently some bits of me have decided they don't like me any more and want out, so tomorrow I get sliced and diced and hopefully only one bit has to come out and not the whole lot!

Thinking positively (the last time I had any kind of surgery was 30 years ago and I woke up in ICU because they nearly lost me) I will have two fat books with me (thanks Glenda!) and I've printed out some Brain Food Factory newsletters which will keep my brain active while I try to get my body back into a semblance of activity.

I'll probably be in there for a week, hopefully less, and it may be a day or three before I am capable of sitting in front of the computer again, but Mr DM has been given a list of people to contact if things do go wrong and no doubt they will inform the wider circle of mutual friends.

So, I will catch you all on the other side!

I might even get some writing done while I'm off work! Might even finish The Novel! Now that would be a nice shock to the system :)

Thank you!

Just completed the first 2 steps of the icky prep - epsom salts definitely do not taste nice although the couple of mouthfuls of vanilla berry jelly I had immediately afterwards definitely improved things!

I now have a litre of stuff to drink over an hour and I had to giggle when the instructions on the sheet they gave me at the hospital said to do this while sitting on the loo!

Mr DM has vacated to his shed!

I gather that you are undergoing gastro surgery.
