The day of my admission into hospital is drawing inexorably nearer, and I'm getting more nervous by the hour. I've cleaned, hoovered and ironed, and now I'm sitting here in a tidy flat wondering what clothes to pack for my 2 week sojourn at Mum's. I think of a pair of trousers, and I wonder if the legs will be wide enough for my leg in its cast to pass through...Maybe I should just pack skirts...or nighties?

And I'm beset by so many more questions: will I be able to go to the loo on my own? How do I wash my hair? Is it too late to call the whole thing off?

The nurse warned me not to bring any valuables to the ward with me. I'll need money to pay for a cab, but should I leave my phone at home? How then will I call in sick?

Will the cats be alright when I'm gone?

Well, I'll only need one phonecall, to tell HR I won't be coming in -- I just hope they won't make me buy some stupidly expensive phonecard that I won't use except for that one call.

you won't be able to bend your ankle at all

Gosh! I hadn't even thought of that! This surgery is getting to be more and more of a nuisance by the minute.

Try to stay calm - these thoughts plagued me during the time before my op too. Take some magazines, but I found I spent a lot of time asleep in a daze from the drugs and a hangover from the general anaesthetic.

Do you have any wide-legged pants? But being summer, you may not need trousers to keep warm anyway. Don't worry about your kitties, they are cats, they will be fine in your absence. *hugs* Good luck with it all and I'm looking forward to your return to posting.

But being summer

Only by popular convention. In reality, it's more like autumn: rainy, grey, windy and cold
(temperatures around the 15C mark),and likely to remain so for the next few weeks at least.
