What happened next...

Last Thursday I ended up in the hospital with severe pain. Thought it was (in this order); e-coli, because I had carried on eating cucumbers from Lidl, kidney stones because of this low carb diet, appendicitis and it goes on. A CT scan in the middle of the night revealed a growth and I was sent to the gynecological hospital. I had a ovarian cyst the size of a grapefruit and the damn thing was thing was trying to kill me. Operated on Saturday to have it removed along with the ovary.
As you can imagine, it's been a shock to all of us. Here I was in the previous post talking about my waist size. How could I not know that this thing was inside there????
My husband has been fantastic. My kids, neighbours, in-laws, colleagues have all been fantastic. Once again, I have nothing but praise for the NHS. Throughout the people working in the doctor's office and hospitals have been kind, sensitive, concerned and did their job well. I was in safe hands.
So now I'm off of work until September. Being home and recovering is it's own journey. I'm tired and sore and having to learn to be still. hmmm.

Get well soon! The ecoli scare has been on everyone's minds in the restaurant lately, and it's a scary thought.
