Relief!

I can hardly believe it but the YFG and I are both sleeping in our own beds tonight!  She has been discharged from the hospital this afternoon, and I have been staying with the FH's cousin in Peterborough to save me the long journeys back and forth to be with her.  It has been very kind of them to put me up for two nights, and they live just about 15 minutes from the hospital so it was very convenient too.

The YFG was admitted in the early hours of Wednesday morning after spending time waiting in A&E on Tuesday evening. Wednesday was spent having various tests done until at about 4pm, the chap decided to put her on the op list for that night.  She eventually went along to the theatre at 11pm and came back, wailing loudly, at 1am.  She was in a 4-bed bay but it was a jolly good job she had it to herself that night.  She was wobbly and woozy most of the day yesterday, but perked up today and we escaped at about 3.30pm!

The EFG has been a star this week, and just been a tower of strength and independence for me.  She was taken home by the FH's cousin on Wednesday night and came back really early on Thursday morning on the train, before heading off to Aberdeen on the train again just after lunch.  She's safely back in her halls there, and ready to start work again on Monday.  We shall miss her no end, again!

UJ also stepped into the breach and stayed over on Wednesday night and last night to be the chicken wrangler so that I didn't need to worry about coming home, and he was here with the EFG as we were a little bit worried about her being here alone with all the wild weather that was forecast.  Good job he was here as part of one of the chicken runs sustained some damage in the wind, and he was able to repair it for me today......he's another star!

Thanks for all the kind messages.  We intend to do as little as possible this weekend and just rest and recover. I am back to work on Monday but the YFG will be having a few more days at home - her teachers have sent work home so she has plenty to keep her occupied whilst she rests!

So glad that all went well and that you are both home safe and sound. Well done to friends and family coming up trumps so you did not have to trail backwards and forwards. I hope that YFG recovers quickly.

Thank goodness your youngest is OK and you are both able to be at home again. Well done to your eldest for getting herself back to uni.
Have a quiet weekend. Best wishes from Suffolk

Glad she's doing better. Having a family to support you in a time of need is a gift from God.

So glad she is out of the hospital - I hope she recovers quickly and doesn't have too much pain.
