When I 'wasted' my time at school, listening to Led Zepplin and Pink Floyd albums, I always used to dream about living in Scotland overlooking the sea, painting pictures, playing and recording music, fishing in my own bay, working on the land and not having to worry about money, and it's all here, O.K. except the money, so I don't worry about it...

Emergency Operation

So I got out of Southern General on Friday and had a great weekend at home, just like normal. Then Tuesday morning arrived, woke up at 3am for some pain relief no problem, straight back to sleep.... woke up at 6am and I couldn't move my neck, after a struggle to get up I looked in the mirror and my neck had swollen to the size of my head, not much I could do about it now so I decided to take some paracetamol and make an appointment at the doctors when they opened... Then all hell broke loose, the pressure must have found a weak stitch and blood started spurting all around the bedroom, this was rather un-nerving... An ambulance trip later I find myself being rushed through for emergency surgery to repair torn artery and wake up in ICU with a tracheostomy but a much smaller neck.... I am now in HDU and feeling fine with a move to a normal ward expected later today.... Dumfries RI is quite a nice hospital by the way.
