First of all thank you so much for your messages of support, they are much appreciated.
The Oh! Bearded One had his operation in the middle of the day and I saw him at about 4pm. He was sitting up, feeling fine and cracking silly jokes which is always a good sign. I've spoken to him on the phone about 10 minutes ago and he was still OK other than he is too hot and is concerned about not being able to sleep tonight because he hates being too hot and also he is 'seeing' white and patterns where his eye should be, he was expecting it to be black. He is finding it rather disconcerting. I am assuming this is happening because the optic nerve to that eye hasn't yet 'switched off. He has been walking about the ward and has had something to eat.
Today I've been on an emotional rollercoaster, I've had several very tearful episodes and I wandered about Liverpool city centre in a daze. It's a good job I've done my Christmas shopping, I couldn't have made a decision to save my life today.
On other news - I got 'my first quilt' completely finished last night and it is over my lap as we 'speak'.
Tomorrow I am planning to go through the house with the vac and a mop so I've finished creating dust in the air before the Oh! Bearded One comes home from hospital on Thursday. I am concerned about dust or animal hair getting into his wound.
