Today is the day I go into surgery to repair my torn bicep tendons. I am due at the hospital at 2.30 this afternoon. I haven’t asked how long the surgery is but I know I’m only in overnight and it’s keyhole surgery. At least there won’t be any whopping great big scars on my arms. From tomorrow, when I get out of hospital I’ll have to stay with my family for a couple of weeks as for the first week at least while my arms are in plaster I won’t be able to do anything for myself. It also means an enforced break from blogging.

Believe me, as soon as I can get back on a computer, I will, but I have to be careful how much I use my arms and I just don’t know what will hurt and what won’t. I was told I won’t be able to work for 3-4 weeks but I expect I’ll be able to be on a computer a little before that for short periods at a time. Thanks to everyone for your well wishes and fantastic support. I’ll keep you posted on how things go when I can.
