Home Sweet Home.


Thanks to so many people, we are back where we belong. If I can just remember what day it is – it is a week since the op and we were dismissed yesterday. Now the hard work begins and I fear my blogging will suffer for a while. But I know what a comfort and support it is to me so I shall keep going somehow.


Where I stayed – Stapleton Lodge - was a real haven. I took some photos of it and will show you soon. At the moment I’m trying to replicate 20 first class nurses – all less than half my age and continue the excellent care he’s been having. I find nursing adults more difficult than children – much less biddable. Hey ho!

Very glad to hear you're 'back where you belong'. I can tell from your blog that you're not a woman who's easily daunted, so I'm sure you're more than capable of doing as well, if not better than twenty or more nurses.
Just don't forget to look after yourself as well.

Nea said...

So glad you're both home.
In total agreement about adults and children, but I'm sure you can clone yourself 10 times (they might have been half your age, but you have double their experience :)

Take care of yourself too

Take you time you need rest too. You know we will all hang around and wait until you are ready for the bloging world.

My belated good wishes to you, Pat -- I know how hard it is to nurse adults, so my hat is off to you! Take care of yourself too.

It's good to know you are home and he's on the mend. Men make such bad patients!!

Leah said...

Home is a wonderful place to be. I am thinking of you both, fondly, and sending good vibes.

Pat said...

All: I could weep with frustration!
I have just written individual replies and bloody blogger has lost them. WHY?
I allowed myself time to answer and now I must get back to chores. I treasure every kind word and send hugs to you all. I will now take deep calming breaths.

Nea said...

If nothing else at least Blogger is keeping you on your IT toes;) not that you need it at the moment. You have set a high standard regarding replies to comments, one that I try to emulate, not that I have ever managed to come anywhere close. Until you're back on an even keel, I'll cut you some slack and be more than happy with a general reply to all and sundry, just letting us know all's well.
Keep taking the calming breaths, I find big mugs of tea topped up regularly help too :)
I'm back off to the chores now too... a curtain rail just fell on my head!
<3

Pat said...

Nea: thanks for a moment of levity.
What I said before is how I am enjoying 'The brightest star' - when I can keep my eyes open. I love her SOH which I'm sure you appreciate.
When the curtain rail falls do you expostulate in English or Swedish?

Warden Files said...

My thoughts have been with you as I lay my head each night my dear. Ever upwards, yes?

Pat said...

Thank you dear Warden. As you say:)

OldOldLady Of The Hills said...

So glad to read that "mending" is going on. I hope you don't exhaust yourself, dear Pat, Nursing can certainly be difficult at any age, but now....Well, DO give yourself some breaks, too and maybe along with those deep breaths a tiny bit of Sherry...Sending Healing Thoughts To Your Dear Loved One, and to you too, my dear Pat....

Pat said...

Naomi: for sherry read Kir(white wine with a dash of cassis). Progress is slow but we have to be patient and be thankful for where we are. The good thing is we are both sleeping well. Thank you for all your good thoughts.

Maggie said...

Welcome home....and sorry that progress is slow. Glad there is progress, and I know you will prevail. Hugs and thoughts your way.

AndrewM said...

At least you are back at base. Take care of yourself too.

Pat said...

Maggie: I thought of you when I was in limbo waiting for the operation to be over. Then I established some sort of routine and it became manageable again. Thank you:)

Andrew.M: lovely to hear from you. Hope Florida is as photogenic as usual.xoxox

Kevin Musgrove said...

I feel awful at having missed this. Many apologies!

[hug]

Pat said...

Kevin; you're forgiven:)

Guyana-Gyal said...

Pat, what a relief. Everything seems to be fine. What Nea says is true though, do remember to take care of you. Otherwise you both will be feeling down.

You have me completely convinced about positive vibes and blogging now.

Pat said...

GG: I do take care and every now and then say 'Now its me time.'
I've known for quite a while the good positive vibes one can get from blogging friends. S'wonderful.

rashbre said...

Best wishes to you both.

Pat said...

Rashbre: thank you. All the wishes, vibes and prayers have been a source of strength and comfort to us and we are truly grateful.
