I feel like my belly is taking the Michael now and I'm more than fed up.
Have you heard anything from the hospital yet?
They bang on about superbugs becoming resistant to antibiotics and yet youíve practically lived on them since December! Scary when you think what would they do if they couldnít give you antibiotics isnít it?
Really take it easy, G. We donít want another high temperature scenario and time back in hospital. The nurses will be doing a sweepstake on which one you like best as you canít stay away!

And donít forget you pay your taxes, you deserve this medical care.

And if you think of what it must cost for people who are really ill.
Gordon , you are really ill, so you deserve to be treated properly until you are better, youíve paid your taxes. Iím sorry to hear thereís another infection, but you will get better eventually, in the mean time Christmas isnít far away so you can start writing your Christmas cards and planning our Christmas nativity

Not sure on the Christmas nativity this year as I cant wear my budgie smugglers anymore due to all the scars and dips I will have on my belly.
Not even sure if i will be infection clear by then the way things are going.

Ha ! lets think now - according to the Daily Mail hospitals don't chase up foreign patients visiting the UK for the millions of £ signs owed so I wouldn't worry about a few more pence and pounds on top of an ever increasing abyss of money waste, it is were America they would just refuse to treat until the money is in....doesn't bode well for patching up your abyss but sure it'll get there.....

Cooking eggs probably only thing keeping you sane. Keep going for the Torts ! CB

You sound like you have as many holes as a teabag, Gordon.
Hope the extra ventilation is keeping you cool and keeping any infection-induced fever away. 😉

As you have now seen my little hole and have given me a good telling off I strangely feel a bit happier
So off to hospital to see what they have to say about things.
The one thing I'm dreading is that I will need another operation as the hole I showed you goes in even deeper today and has quite a cavity inside which I can only assume is not good and before you tell me off yes I did use a sterile plastic measuring thing the nurse gave me so I can monitor what it's doing over the weekend.

I'm sat here feeling sorry for myself and my youngest daughter and her friend who is staying over for a while have just bought a bucket full of frogs and toads in which has made me smile.
And also evicted one of the Burmese browns out of their tent.

You know, I felt happier when you called it your Ďpussy holeí. I knew what you meant but that put a smile on my face today.
I really hope you wonít need more surgery and youíre totally within your rights to ask what assurances they can offer that further surgery will not lead to more infections and more holes as the last two have.
Letís hope they can slow the pace of this infection down quickly so the hole doesnít get any deeper.

Lovely your daughter and her friend cheered you up. Sometimes itís the simple things that matter - a bucket of frogs and toads and the image of them chasing out a burmese brown. I love that!

Keep plodding on. You will get there in the end. Nothing lasts for ever and this horrid little chapter will end too eventually.
Anyway, youíve promised us youíre cooking something special. It had better not be any more infections but something shelled and with wrinkled knees.

As for the browns we find them everywhere in the lounge and the bedroom once behind the bathroom door even.
I suppose that's the Joy's of living in a bungalow and they have free roam of the garden.

Well spent most of the day in hospital being prodded and poked.
I now have a very large cavity where apparently some infection must of got trapped while my surgical wound was healing and needed out hence I now have another hole that's full of infection.
The surgeon said they want to see if it will heal by itself but I will more than likely need another operation.
