The 7th of January.
Today I have been a much more comfortable temperature. Put the cashmere socks and Uggs on to begin with, and a polo neck Superdry jumper that is warm but REALLY ITCHY.
This morning I watched Aisling on Sunday Brunch while I wrote about yesterday (didn’t have time before dinner last night) and put together the bear I made the parts of already.
I got kicked out of the living room at the end of the show because Grandma came for lunch and seemed to be brewing a cough of some description. Can’t have me catching that days before surgery.
I ate lunch with everyone, just sat at the opposite end of the table to Grandma. Then I was back in the kitten room for the rest of the afternoon. They slept on my lap, and occasionally they woke up to watch terrible films on the Sony Movie channel. Godzilla from 1998 which is just hilarious, especially considering how scared of it I used to be, and S.W.A.T. which is action movie nonsense. I left them when I ran out of water. Fluids are more important than relaxed kittens.
The 8th of January.
It has not been quite as chilly today, thankfully. I stayed in my pyjamas this morning, as after I wrote up my blog post, I took off all my nail varnish prior to surgery tomorrow, then I went to have a big exfoliate and moisturising session for the same reason.
I decided to do all the moisturising in my bedroom, after last time – I stayed sitting up for too long with no support and it was excruciating to the point where my only instinct was to get to my bedroom and lie down. I thought I’d skip the pain this time.
After lunch, I sat with the kittens for a bit and watched Big Little Lies until Now TV had some sort of small fit and stopped working. I saw the first two and a half episodes. I really like all the houses.
Tonight I’ve got to make a list of stuff to take to hospital tomorrow and make sure I get an early night. I’ve got to bed up in time to drink a litre of water before 6am or my veins’ll be shit and after that time, I’m nil by mouth, despite me not having any sedation, let alone a general anaesthetic.
