No sleep really last night – every time I moved it seemed to catch, pull or press against the wound and the stinging was painful. I’ll probably nod-off involuntary at some stage today – as I do not intend to go out at all.
Got me deliveries coming from Iceland and Tesco today.
I’d planned to start packing the long life stuff in bags ready to take with me when I move to a flat – but it would be too painful at the moment with the Cancer wound and angina both vying for the place as lead pain-maker of the day. Hehehe!
Made a cuppa and took bags out to the bin. Raining a bit windy at the moment (0455hrs).
Took me medications. Yesterday when they took me INR Warfarin level before doing the surgery the level had dropped somewhat – so I took half a Warfarin and an Codiene extra.
Finished yesterdays diary and got it posted.
Spent a few hours trying to get into the workings of the Serif Draw x6 graphics package. Didn’t get very far though – so complicated compared to others, but it does have decent bitmap options, when I learn how to use them properly like.
Wasted time there then.
Managed to learn how to save names to numbers and delete messages on the Nokia Lumia 635 – the battery in it seems to run down rather quickly though.
Now awaiting the arrival of the Iceland delivery.
I phones Janet (Sister) and Pete, had a chin-wag.
I marinated some baked beans and potatoes in a dish ready to cook and have later.
The deliveries came and I tried to sort them out but had to leave them, too painful at the moment.
Thinking what I could be doing and me hearing-aids in need of a de-coke, clean and re-tubing I decided to do just that. Normally a half hour job at most… but not today.
Today the Whoopsiedangleplops returned in my efforts to carry out this task. I’ll explain:
The cleaning and de-coking went well – Not. Confidence returning to me here, getting a bit cocky with it eh?
I only had four tubes left and thought ‘I’d better be careful not to waste any here… Huh! The first left one I angled the flipping tube for the right one when I fitted it – had to pull it out and it was no use to use again.
Very carefully with shaking hands I cut sized and inserted another one. All okay that on then… until I realised I’d somehow managed to lose me pull-througher brush… spent yonks looking for it, but no luck? Oh dear…
To the right one making sure I’d aligned it for the right hearing aid and fitted it – but I’d cut it too short and the tube would go around to me tab-hole. Tsk!
Another tube wasted, no reserves now.
Got the last one fitted alright, at last.
Technical stuff confuses me yer know!
Made me nosh and fell asleep ‘Heaven!’ for two hours in ten minute portions kept catching the wound. Followed by a fesh cream Horn cake – I don’t remember ordering those from Tesco at all.
“LIE MODE DETECTED!”
I wrote down the different recipe I tried for the beans – threw it away afterwards, eugh!.
Woke and laptop on and this diary finished off.
Did some Facebooking and WordPress reading.
