All your vibes please

I was lying in bed this morning, about 09.00, when I received a phone call.

25Aug09 035-3

There had been a cancellation and I am on Monday’s operating list for a micro-discectomy of L4/L5.   Please could I be in Aberdeen by tomorrow for admission to the ward.


So, whilst packing with one hand, trying to phone my mother with the other, trying to convince BeAnne that I am coming home, and typing this blog while I my mind is in a whirl, please think of me and send me healing vibes. I was not expecting this.


Well, I was, but just not quite this soon.  

FST 22

The boat goes at 19.00.  I am already feeling sick.  Not sure of my method of transport at the moment – I may have to use Jo’s van-bulance or it may be a proper ambulance on a stretcher to get the ferry port.  There will be an ambulance waiting the other end. That has yet to be confirmed.

Please God let the Ward be nice to me and,most of all, please let them listen to me. Last time, I left with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder.

    Prayers to you Frances… although I know that back surgeries are like snowflakes, no two are alike, mine was outrageously successful and so I know sometimes they really do wrought miracles. So take heart and keep the faith. I’ll be thinking of you, and hoping hoping hoping that all goes exceptionally well!

    Fair dinkum vibes from DownUnder… heading your way… while you continue to bowl me over with your photo presentation even as you pack. That pair of frolicking horse babies appear to have leaped off a cave wall painting. Gorgeous in black and white. Looking forward to your return….
