I am home from hospital ...


Thank you everyone for all of your kind wishes which you have left at my two previous posts... for your best wishes for the surgery and for my health. Also to those of you who have kindly e-mailed me and sent images of beautiful flowers to cheer me, they were very much appreciated.
I am home but still in quite a lot of pain, moving and breathing hurts. My operation, a Cholecystectomy (surgical removal of the gallbladder) and Intraoperative Cholangiogram was performed using Laparoscopic surgery, so I have quite a few wounds. Thank goodness my heart behaved itself during the surgery. The only unforeseen complication was the size of my enlarged gallbladder which was reluctant to come out and the fact that it was gangrenous. I am so fortunate that it was removed when it was otherwise the outcome could have been a lot worse. I have been sent home on some very strong antibiotics. I have to see my doctor again later today to check on my progress and healing.
I will come and visit your blogs when I am feeling a lot more energetic.

Love to all, Dianne

Dear Dianne.
Very sorry because of post-operative pain.
I am with you wholeheartedly. You'll be fine.
After some time, the pain subsided.
Dianne, a lot of rest.
I kiss you hard.
Happy week.
Greetings.

I'm glad you're home. Soon you'll be fine at all. Paco was operated in the same and was restored soon. Courage, Dianne.
Besos.

Dear Dianne,

You are a myth, a woman who can translate even the silence. Because you were born for a sunny day.

Warm greetings from my family.
We love you.

Yannis Politopoulos

Thank you dear friend Lucia for being with me and for thinking of me, you are very sweet.
I know in time I will recover, the pain is just difficult at present.
I am pleased to be home in familiar surroundings and the quiet of the house.
You just cannot beat the fragrance of the garden very early on a cool Autumn morning and it is so lovely to hear the birds singing once more...I missed all of this in the sterile environment of the hospital.
Many kisses and hugs
Love, Dianne

Thank you dear Laura for your kind words, I know my health will be restored in time.
I have been very courageous,I have been tested to my limits, there have been other health problems which presented themselves, which I could mention but I will leave it at that.
I am looking forward to feeling well again, hopefully better than before.
Besos

Thank you for not forgetting me, it is good to know that I can transcend the silence.

Thank you dear friend Marty for your kind words and wishes for my recovery. I hope the bad days are behind me too, I did not realise how ill I really was and ignored some early warning signs, thinking they were insignificant...I know better now.
Yes, I hope I can find some inspiration for some happy poems.
bisous

My darling virtual friend Lucia , I love visiting your blog and reading your lovely words about your adventures and looking at your glorious photos of these wonderful places you and Eric visit. I would not miss a post if I could help it, that is why I visited last night, to see what I had missed.
I also have seen the film "Letters to Juliet" a few times and "Under the Tuscan Sun", I love romantic films with happy endings.
It is wonderful too that in real life Vanessa Redgrave and Franco Nero, who were the stars of the 1967 film "Camelot" became lovers whilst making the film and had a child. Their lives went in different directions but they have now married after all of these years, such a real life happy ending.
I am so pleased that you visited Verona.
Love and hugs, Dianne

Ha, maybe prayer works after all. Ha, I wasn't ready on you leaving the world just yet. An angel went around that globe and watched. That's all that was necessary. To make sure that things occurred correctly and to nudge surgeon's minds. You know, you're something of a legend. Not only to me. It's funny how things turn out. You have many who think of you and I'm happy for you. You'll be as right as rain very soon, I know this. In fact, you were never in danger, as incredible as that sounds. You know, when you want to say something, that feeling inside, but all you can do, is yearn. Well, that's where I'm at. My heart hurts, in fact, has been in pain for a year now. Literally. Strong enough, I don't know anymore. But I know yours is strong which is a good thing. We need hearts. And kindness. And love. Because otherwise we're not human anymore. And you are very human. And kindly. And lovely. And you'll be around for some years yet, I am pleased to inform you. Take care, Dianne.x

All we are is dust... (it's funny, I walked on that same bridge in Hendon when I lived there in the 70's). A short film teaching us a lesson about what we think we know. Isn't that what Pride & Prejudice was about? Thinking that we know about things, whereas in reality, we live in ignorance much of our lives... There was something else. It'll have to be another time, I have to eat now.

Dearest C.B. perhaps prayer does work after all, someone was looking out for me, your prayers must have sent the angel. I worry, for my prayers have not made you feel happy and whole and taken away that sad feeling of yearning for someone or something. I wish your heart did not hurt so much, I wish I had the answers for you, I wish I could fix it. You know that I care for you and want you to be well, I hope that is of some comfort to you.
I do know that feeling, my heart is not as emotionally strong as you might think, I am not as strong as you think.
I was in danger for quite a few months because I ignored some significant warning signs, pain and symptoms that were telling me that there was something wrong. I ignored the report from a CT scan in September last year, telling me that there was a problem which required further urgent investigation. Why? Because my time is taken up looking after other people and I put my health last. Not, any more, I am not invincible.
My poems to you come from yearning, hoping that you are still there watching over me, close by. Your words to me and the beautiful rose you left for me before my surgery touched me, I felt I could get through the surgery and the physical pain. I have to be courageous and brave, I don't like having all of these invasive tests done, having cannulas inserted into veins, having blood taken every day... the first eight days in hospital were a nightmare but I know everything was for a reason so I put on my brave face and get on with it. My daughter says I am very strong as I have been put through so much and I am still gracious and patient.
You are a legend to me, you always have been. Yes, I am kind, caring and loving and so blessed to have you come here and write such kind words to me...I am also blessed to have my children, a few close friends and my virtual friends who care for me.
Please take care dear friend, I don't want to lose you either. ♡

Dust, yes we are all dust and we will return to dust and become a part of the cosmos giving new life to trees, plants and animals.
I thought the man, Alan Rickman was homeless and at one time had a wife and daughter and had somehow lost them and was watching the Mother and her daughter trying to recapture some of his memories from the past. When he broke into the house I thought he might have been looking for food, comfort, shelter, perhaps help. I did feel a little concerned when he hugged the little girl, I was hoping he was just looking to feel the warmth of a child once more as if she was his own child and he was... not for any unsavory reason. I am a Mother, of course I would wonder. I was very surprised when he ground up her tooth and snorted the powder from the mirror. I am supposing he was given the strength to become an angel again, given the innocence of a child and he was able to fly back to Heaven. The little girl smiled so she must have understood when she looked out of the window and saw him flying.
Thank you for the link, please come back again when you have the time and please remember to eat.
Take care dear one, my thoughts are always with you.

Bonjour ma chère Diane,

Je suis très heureuse d'apprendre que votre intervention chirurgicale se soit bien déroulée. J'ai eu l'ablation de ma vésicule à l'âge de 25 ans.
Je vous souhaite un prompt rétablissement. Je pense fort à vous et je vous envoie un grand rayon de soleil...
Gros bisous 💜

dianne said...

Hello dear martine alison , thank you for your kind words and wishes for my health.
I think if I was 25 and how I wish I was I would be healing a lot faster. ;-)

dianne said...

Dearest C.B. , if you are passing this way again, I just watched the 'Dust' video again and I think he could be the "Tooth Fairy".
Yes, Pride and Prejudice is all about misunderstandings and misconceptions.
Speaking of Jane Austen, I watched the video "Having a Ball" again recently.
So you walked across that same bridge in Hendon when you lived there in the 70's? Hendon was mentioned on a television program I was watching but I cannot remember which program.
Again, take care dear friend.
xoxoxo ♡

It's good that you're at home and at worst is behind you. Now there will be only getting better and wish that quickly was very good. Regards.

Que Deus te dê um esplendoroso dia, com raios luminosos que te possam clarear os olhos para ver o quanto és importante. Deus Pai te fez assim: mulher importante e figura do próprio amor. Ele te moldou como uma rosa: forte e justa como os espinhos, linda e suave como as pétalas. (fonte:aqui)

FELIZ DIA INTERNACIONAL DAS MULHERES!
Um doce abraço, Marie.
