Winter in my garden..

Sorry I haven’t been on in a while! I ruptured my appendix and had to have emergency surgery so I’ve been on bed rest for the last week as it’s still sore and I can’t take a lot of pain relief medication due to my asthma medication! Spheres some photos Mum took of the garden last week!

Well can't give yo a like for this Dan! How horrid for you. A ruptured appendix can have serious results if it isn't caught in time so thank goodness you appear to have been lucky - though you probably don'#t feel very lucky at the moment!

Haha I thought it was jut a stomach cramp and flu bug as I’d been sick all the night prior to it rupturing! However on trying to get out of bed and not being able to walk I knew something wasn’t good!

I hope you are feeling better

Thankyou!

Yes, not being able to walk is a good clue that all is not well!

that is so rotten Danny. I had that happen to me when I was 15 so I know your pain.

Get plenty of rest but keep mobile [I know that sounds double dutch but don't take your self to bed.]

Oh Dan what are you like, you had to have surgery last year as well didn't you, its not part of Uni studies you know, lol....Anyway I'm pleased you are okay it can be very nasty if not caught in time, happened to my youngest and she ended up having emergency op as well, you take care now but Seaburn is right, don't let yourself become an invalid, little bits of gentle exercise is good for you and you'll heal quicker, that of course doesn't mean going out tweaking in the garden so don't get any ideas about picking up the odd leaf or two....I have given a like for your garden and mum for taking the photo's for your blog. Take care Dan, sending healing vibes in your direction to help with a speedy and full recovery...

Thanks everyone! I’ve been mobile now again aha, been a nice little walk every morning and just pruned things in the garden thatdonr require getting on the floor because that’s a no go just yet!

Hope you are now making a good recovery. Take it easy.

Thanks Marjorie!

Oh Wow Dan! You have been in the wars, when you get pain don't forget it's your body's way of telling you all is not well! the garden's looking good, still with lots of colour points, the Cyclamen certainly add a splash of colour, really useful plants all year round. Keep getting better slowly, let you body heal, but don't vegetate.

In my experience, pain meaning there's something wrong that needs attention in the body is only applicable to people under about 55... after that, all bets are off, plenty of pain about, probably mostly arthritic, thanks!

Nasty, though, a ruptured appendix, you've been lucky... despite the agony it must have been, nice to have a mum about though... nice pics too! Glad you're over the worst now.

I hope you're better soon Dan. Your garden still looks amazing. You still have leaves on your Acer! Mine have just been "twigs" for weeks now.

Thanks everybody! Mum and Dad have been a dream haha! Today’s task is to decorate the new Christmas tree on the decking and then pot some pots up (albeit it I’ll pot them in the dining room where I can sit on a chair at the table to do so)

29 Nov, 2017

 

A very pleasant task, so long as it doesn't involve lifting anything heavy, especially not that tree in its pot!

29 Nov, 2017

 

Am joining in with all the above good wishes. Thank Goodness all is well now and you have a lovely Mum to keep an eye on you.

The garden still looks good.

Thanks everyone! The only lifting I’ve done really is when I’ve been and bought the new lights and baubles etc! Daren’t move anything too heavy!

Hope you are much better now and are taking care of yourself.
At least you didn't choose a 6 foot high tree that would involve you climbing up a wobbly ladder to decorate it!!

Thanks everybody! And definitely no big trees yet! We’ve got to do the indoor trees but that’s a wait until Dad is home from work as none of us at home are strong enough to move and carry them ?
