Update: I am out of hospital - thanks for the lovely comments
03 June 2010
I am now out of hospital and recovering at home. Unfortunately the surgery didn't go very well at all. There were lots of complications and eventually the surgeon decided not the complete the planned operation because it became too risky. I ended up staying in hospital for longer than expected because of the horrible pain.
The good news is that I am now at home recuperating. They are planning on getting one of the top surgeons in the state involved to give some advice on whether there is anything else that can be done for me, so I am hopeful that something might come of that.
The bad news is that the surgery was on my eyes, which means that reading and using the computer is very difficult for me. I won't be able to stay on long after this post I don't think. Although I can't read very well, I have been listening to audio books. I listened the Pride and Prejudice and I am half way through Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone, read by Stephen Fry, who is absolutely hilarious as you might expect.
Anyway, I just wanted to give you all an update and say thanks for all the wonderful comments that everyone left me. I will be totally recovered in 3 weeks, but in the meantime I will try and keep up tp date with everything and everyone.
