I have been feeling a bit nervous about today. I don’t know why. I have had this procedure (steroid/anaesthetic injections into my spine) a few times but every time is a different occasion.
When it comes to my spine, I get a bit precious.
So, last night, I wrote on Facebook….
Accompanied with my favourite photo….
Daisy and I drove to GBH this morning (yes, it is the best name for a hospital ever!) nice and early. We did the usual department dance. You know, go to Day Surgery, ring the doorbell, be asked to go back to reception and let the Day Surgery reception lady know you have arrived, Sit down in Out-Patients reception and wait for Day Surgery reception nurse arrive to collect to you to take you to the original Day Surgery, where you started out!
While we sat in Out-Patients Reception, Daisy and I discussed where BeAnne would sit (on my knee was the conclusion) and also Lambie, had we brought them And, with that, Daisy took out of her handbag, her Lambie to put in mine so he was with me all day.
I could’ve cried. What a lovely gesture.
Meanwhile, Flossie was at home holding the fort.
My two daughters are wonderful and I cannot thank them enough.
Today was not brilliant. The injections hurt. Seriously hurt. I don’t remember that part where they ask use a needle, poke around and ask you where it hurts, before – usually I am unconscious and remember nothing. Anywho, it has all been done and tomorrow it is business as usual.
Lambie is always with me!
