My Beloved Spaceman goes in to hospital tomorrow morning for planned surgery. When I was telling his half a sister I said it feels all wrong. He's the strong one, the one who never gets anything worse than a cold or a hangover, the one who looks after us. She understood and didn't tell me not to be so bloody selfish!

Even though I am well supported by the others who live here in the Rift, Dazzle_Dust is coming down for a few days for my comfort and joy and to distract The Divine Daughter. Truly I am blessed....

Will be thinking of you both, and I hope the thoughts of 'strangers' will also give you a little lift :)

MaggieD says:

Oh yes, and I really like that pic :)

I too hope all goes well, Hugs.

Twiglet says:

Thank you all. It's not life threatening, just horrible and with a long recovery time.

Hope it goes OK. These things are often worse, I think, for loved ones than for the person having the op.
Lovely photo.

Twiglet says:

You're not wrong there cariadus... BS goes through life not worrying unless there's something to worry about. I however prefer to imagine worst case scenarios to keep myself awake at night...

He left about half an hour ago and I'm now waiting for his lift to let me know he got there OK, as opposed to lying in a heap of twisted metal by the side of the road....

All is crossed for you and the BS of course.

I know what you mean BB is not allowed to be ill etc, that is my role!

Twiglet says:

Thanks FFox. We have just got back from visiting him, he had his op lunchtime. In his own words he is *ripped to the tits* in other words drugged off his face and loving it. He was only half with it so we left him resting as we wanted to get back here in time for the chip wagon. He is seeing the consultant tomorrow and hopefully will be home for the weekend.

I hope he's on the mend by now!

"we left him resting as we wanted to get back here in time for the chip wagon" ROFL!

glad he's compos mentis - well, almost

30th Jul 2009, 19:22

Twiglet says:

Thanks all. He has a lap top with him so maybe he's reading this.

Jane: When you live in an area like this the weekly visit of the chip van is very important. He understood why we needed to get back in time, honestly he did.

Love the picture, hope all goes well. Thoughts are with you all.

Hope he's feeling better soon!

Twiglet says:

Thank you Orbit, kel and everyone who has commented here.

BS is now home. He's uncomfortable and tired but he's OK. He's on a bewildering amount of drugs including steroids, really a huge amount and I know a thing or 2 about prescription medication.

Dazzle_Dust is staying and supporting us and the others in the rift are also helping out and keeping our spirits up. Bro J swooped in last night and polished off the leftover chips and amused us with inappropriate stories.

Thank you all so much for your kind messages. Really it's so comforting to know that we are being thought of fondly. XXXX

Cheers people

I am quite pragmatic about these kinds of things trying to make use of forced 'resting' time.

I looked on the whole affair as an opportunity to watch a couple of films '2001' and 'The Watchmen'.

Well now I am back home I can get on with trying to create a patent ubuntu distribution for work.

Hugs to you all.

Ooer, missed this - hope BS is still nicely spaced & all is well in the Rift.

Caine says:

Ah, I missed this too. I'm glad all went well and BS is home, where he'll be most cared for and loved. I hope his recovery goes well.

1st Aug 2009, 05:10

Twiglet says:

Thanks Essitam, hidegard and Caine. It turns out he is well enough to bicker with Dazzle_Dust... : )

Bickering = good sign.

Chip wagon = very important.

Get well soon BS, you're certainly in the right place to get well-looked-after.

Twiglet says:

Joker the cry of *why don't you f**k off and die* just rang through the Rift House so I guess things are getting back to normal....


1st Aug 2009, 12:18

Caine says:

I share you sigh. The cry of "why don't you fook off and die" is so much better than the cry of silence though.

1st Aug 2009, 12:39

JokerXL says:

Ah, SNAFU, good stuff.

1st Aug 2009, 14:27

Twiglet says:

Caine and Joker: This is normal for BS and Dazzle_Dust. It's what passes for banter between these two.

Dust is so great though, it's wonderful to have her here.

1st Aug 2009, 17:27

SLG says:

Glad BS is doing well and the banter is abundent!

3rd Aug 2009, 11:29

Twiglet says:

Sadly Dazzle_Dust had to go home last night as she was due back at work this morning. BS continues well, fiddling with his instruments and generally having a relaxing time in his BS way...
