Morning all

TMH good luck for today, thinking of you.
Tort hope you get the gall stones sorted, sounds really bad.

Just popped in quickly. Today I'm sorting out the dc's clothes and the hot spot mountain in my bedroom. Toys for charity shop are going, just have to remember to put them under teh buggy. Clothes can go tho the clothes bank next time we go to tesco's.I'm getting really lazy though with the online shopping, is saving us money as are we(DP) are not impulse buying.

WM is on, so had better get moving. DD finishes playschool wednesday and want to get flat sorted before then.

EustaciaVye Mon 21-Jul-08 08:36:27

Just popping in quickly to wish TMH lots of luck, and some nice people on the recovery ward.

Tort - hope you get to GP. Sounds awful.

Place a mess and I have people coming over later. Managed dining room and kitchen last night but have 20 mins to tidy living room and playroom before pre-school drop off.


biglips Mon 21-Jul-08 09:44:26

scattyspice Mon 21-Jul-08 09:48:07

Good luck TMH.

Am busy getting stuff together for the beach.


lucysmam Mon 21-Jul-08 09:50:05

good morning all!

MAD hope all goes ok for you!!!

Well, good nights sleep last night for a change so lots of energy today,

already done pots & washing on line from yesterday and another load in, just going to chuck chicken remains from roast in pot for stock to attempt my own soup [fingers crossed]

after that, babystep & mission. Master bedroom, whats 1 of them then??? Mines like a dumping ground for EVERYTHING so should be interesting.

Hope all have a good day, will be back later with progress (bet i dont get far hmm)

tortoise Mon 21-Jul-08 10:10:03

No psin so far this morning. Have had jelly again! And bought cereal bars (1.5g fat)and had one since got home. I have very little energy. Do you think it is ok to not see DR and just see if have no more pain today?

I am suppose to be going to the job centre tomorrow for a review. Hopefully i will be able to make it. Then had something else to go to but going to cancel that because it will be a long walk from job centre and i have to be ok for DS1's leavers BBQ in the eve. (although i won't eat anything!)

TMH Hope all goes well today. smile

OMG MAD you really are on a mission this morning smile

good luck for later on. Sorry if I was flippant last night, had a glass of wine.. seem to loose tact and diplomacy in those situations. blush

Washing and dishwasher done
paperwork done
have other stuff going on atm but am still trying to keep up with the house.

DS1 finishes school tomorrow so making the most of the quiet house.


TheMadHouse Mon 21-Jul-08 10:38:20

Bythepower I dont mind flippant. I am trying to get myself ccupied. How are you?

tortoise Mon 21-Jul-08 10:43:28

WOW TMH you are keeping busy.

I am really worried about having an op. sad I know i should see DR but if i only have an attack now and then i can cope with it better than the thought of op.

bythepowerofgreyskull Mon 21-Jul-08 10:45:28

ok thanks, just got some stuff to work through with DH, hard when our opinions are poles apart and not really something where there is a middle way.
We have a rounders bat in the garage if have wondered if I can lamp him with it and make him see things my way but that is not very reasonable behaviour blush

anyway off to get dressed, can't pick up DS1 from nursery in my PJ's!!

bythepowerofgreyskull Mon 21-Jul-08 10:46:43

tort would have have to have an op? are there no chemical type treatments that can break the stones down?

tortoise Mon 21-Jul-08 10:49:26

I believe op is best way to go. Should be key hole surgery.

TheMadHouse Mon 21-Jul-08 11:11:10

Tort I had my op on Friday and was back at work on Monday shock, so dont worry, five tiny cuts that is it. Dead easy

tortoise Mon 21-Jul-08 11:16:31

Wow really? I thought it took longer to get over than that.
So all i would really need is over night care for DC. Would i be able to look after them in the day after that? DS's can help with making lunches i'm sure.

TheMadHouse Mon 21-Jul-08 11:18:16

I was in and out same day and as I said 20 weeks pregnant. I needed to have someone with me for 24 hours due to the anathetic (sp). I talked them in to letting me go home

I receover well and spent the rest of that day in bed and the next day on the sofa

TheMadHouse Mon 21-Jul-08 11:19:19

Oh yes they said I might need 2 weeks off work, but I found it much less painful than the attacks I had been suffering.

So Get yourself to the doctors NOW

I am off now, I will catch you all tomorrow
