The Night Before....

I've asked Ben to type this for me, as he's been doing a brilliant job updating my blog. Surgery is tomorrow, to say I'm a tad terrified is an understatement.
Hopefully all will go according to plan and in a couple of days i will wake up in intensive care.
They keep you under sedation and on a ventilator for a couple of days to help with the healing. It all seems a bit of a dream like. Just a few weeks ago I was building a sleeper wall and getting the hay in, helping with the medieval day and organizing a party.

Apparently, I am Critical but stable. It's a wonder I haven't popped my clogs! Obviously my maker has decided it's not my time yet...
I've been warned that my recovery will be a long and slow one. So hopefully, I'll have some time for my miniatures and finally get my witches hat shop built.
Ben has been printing off your comments for me. Thank you everyone for your get well wishes and your caring words, They've certainly cheered me up. The good news is my son's can now use the washing machine and my whites are still white! lol.

Ben and Harry return to school tomorrow, so Ben will update when he can, and let you know how it all went.
Love to you all
Debbie xxxx

Thinking of you today Debbie and sending you best wishes for a speedy recovery.

Tabitha Corsica said...

As Kate said, there are only positive thoughts going out in the universe tonight for you. Anyone would be nervous but I am confidence this will be absolutely fine. You are in good hands. My father had this surgery at age 75 (with many other medical issues as well) and he was home in 10 days. He said the leg incisons from the graft harvest was the worst part of healing. I'll be thinking of you all day, as wil we all.


nikkinikkinikki72 said...

Debbie, i will be thinking of you all day and the next until we hear from the boys and Mick.
I never find the right words but you are in my thoughts and i for one can't wait to have you back home and doing everything you love.
Lots of love to you, Nikki x x x

Claudia said...

I've been thinking about you every day and praying for a good recovery....What you have to go through sounds like a lot! Just keep your chin up, and know that we are All here for you! It will be over before you know it, and you'll be back to making all of us drool again real soon! Take Care!

Hooray! For the whites still being white! We knew he could do it;)

Dear Debbie,
Please know that we are all praying for you and for the doctors and all who will be a part of your surgery. When you drift off to dreamland, just think of all of those who love and care for you. We'll be waiting for your return to mini making. Right now, just rest and know that you are in God's hands and He loves you too.

If you should need any kind of help with social services there and hit a road block give a holler to me. I have a very good friend who is a senior councilman in that area of Wales. He will push telephone buttons for me even though I live all the way across the pond in Seattle, Wa.

rudoo said...

Debbie, everything is going to be fine! :-) You take care and we'll be waiting to see your witch shop come along as you recover!

tarapiglet said...


We are thinking about you and know everything will turn out good for you. You are in our thoughts and prayers. I am sending you something Hawaiian. I hope you'll enjoy it. I am also sending you some audio books to borrow besides the gift.

Much much love,
Tara Ericson

I haven't read blogs in a while, so I didn't know about your health issues...
I hope you'll heal quickly!
