LOL, love it. You're a true poet. So glad the op went well. Take it easy for now!Aren't you all lovely! Thank you so much for all your good wishes. The op went really well, and though it's uncomfortable, and awkward, with one of those surgical boots, and crutches, I haven't had any pain at all.
As I live in a bungalow, I don't have the problem of stairs, and I've made use of the bath wipes that I used to use for John. But my lovely friend, who's an ex-nurse is coming twice a week, for 6 weeks, to give me a highly comical bath.
I have the bath lift, but as it's my left foot that was operated on, I can't have a conventional bath. So I sit sideways on, then she lowers the bath lift, so that the nether-regions are immersed, (blissful!!!), with my legs hanging over the side, and then she soaps and showers me.
She has a 25 mile round trip to me, and won't take a penny, not even for petrol. However, she's going on holiday, to France, with her sisters, in April, so I shall put some Euros in a card, and she's agreed that I can treat them all "to a coffee" - it'll be a lot more than that!
So this is the rhyme that I'll write in the card:
No words can I find, to thank you, my friend
When troubles surround me, on you I depend
Your love and compassion are priceless, it's true
You're the Jewel in the Crown, and my treasure is you
You've tenderly bathed me, each nook and each cranny
My boobs and my botty and even my ...... ARMS!
So have a great time, and a break, and a rest
You're one in a million, and Simply The Best!!
Well, so far, it's been suggested I launch the following companies:Well done on all fronts Scarlett.
You know something? You could probably make a decent living writing your poems for Greetings Cards - and if you are "crafty", you could design your own line of cards.
So pleased you are back Scarlett and all is going well. I hope you don't mind but I've coined a phrase Scarlettism. I apply it universally to guide my approach to ensuring that Maureen and I get the support we need and deserve. Lovely to know that you are back with us. I have missed your sound advice and support. G LWell, so far, it's been suggested I launch the following companies:
Eulogies R Us
Probates R Us
Arguing the toss with Social Services R Us
Don't know if I could manage another one!
