It’s just typical! The story of my life really, the hospital wanted me to have follow up blood tests to make sure my kidneys and other bits and bobs were functioning properly and what happens! I get this letter……
Please contact the surgery and book an appointment to see the nurse regarding your recent cholesterol blood results.
If you remember the nurse tricked me into having my cholesterol and blood sugars done at the same time 😤 I looked on my online medical site and noted that the tests the hospital had requested had the comments abnormal but expected at the side of them 🤔 hmm so why have them done then!
I think my cholesterol is higher because before I went in hospital I was hardly eating anything and post surgery I ate very little until they threatened me with a tube 😳 then I managed to eat a little ☺️
On the way home from the hospital a miracle happened, my appetite came rushing back, my requests to stop at Mc Donald’s, Pizza Hut and the local Chinese were all rebuffed by John and Louise. They thought I was joking 🙃 but trust me I was deadly serious.
Since been home I took the advice of the hospital, “eat anything you fancy “they told me so I have 😁 in great quantities too. My body was telling me to, so I could get stronger, I needed the fuel ⛽️
So now reality has hit home and I need to reign in my shire horse 🐴 munching and reduce the butter, cheese, pies, cakes 🧁 and eat sensibly .
There is no way I’m going to go and sit listening to a nurse for a seven minute appointment tell me what I need to eat. I’ve got google to tell me that. I’m seeing my own doctor in a few weeks, that’s soon enough!
I’m sleeping better now and apart from feeling like I’m wearing a steel plated vest and feeling tired suddenly I don’t feel too bad.
I’ve got a donut 🍩 coming today NOT the sweet variety obviously 🙄 this one is to sit on to make me more comfortable 😄
Have a great day whatever you’re doing.
