Tomorrow will be six weeks since my surgery. This means a number of things. I should be able to start driving again, and doing a few more things (I need to double check with the car insurance people though).
It also means that my sick note will finish and I will be fit for work again! In terms of my recovery it has gone really well, and apart from a cold over the last few days (including a really nasty earache) I reckon I am ready to go back. I will be doing so on a phased return, so easing back in slowly over about four weeks.
It has been great to be able to do some things – walking for example – that I could not do before surgery, and whilst I haven;t achieved everything I wanted during my recovery (there are still uncompleted XBox games and unread books) I am pleased with what I have been able to do.
The six weeks will also mean I can do more around the house and with the baby, so whilst I hope to be able to continue to blog regularly, please forgive me if I slow down a bit. I have had some lovely feedback and comments on the blog, and now have 50 follows on WordPress. I don’t know if that is good, but I am happy with it!
With that in mind, I’d love to know what you would like me to write about. Do you want details of my stoma, bag and the stuff around that, or are you more interested in life with a stoma? Leave me a comment and I’ll try and write about it!
I know I also need to finish my back story, up to the recent surgery, so will try and get that done too.
I am also taking place in the Instagram #iauibd365 hashtag – daily photos of life with IBD from people all around the world. You can check out my Instagram at https://instagram.com/doobarz/
Right, I had better get to bed – work in the morning!
