Oh well! My sister did a bit of tidying the pantry, and turfed out my collection of plastic supermarket carry bags. I did a bit of follow-up tidying, and have disposed of the mandolin slicing gadget which I have never used, and the device which houses the plastic wrap.
It was nice to have them here, giving me so much help. And it was just as well. All things considered. I really do appreciate all that the family did for me. It is a pity that it takes an emergency or health scare to get them here, rather than visiting for the sheer fun of it, and being able to gad about together. I am not yet up to gadding about.
Today has been fairly quiet. Three of the Knitting Group visited this morning, bearing a gorgeous bunch of purple and white flowers, just beautiful. It was lovely to see them. They are so kind.
The implant site is less sore, and I am sleeping better, but it is still very swollen. I suppose it takes time. The pacemaker seems to be kicking in less frequently, so I presume it and my heart are becoming accustomed to each other. I have another medical appointment in another week, to deal with the form required to have my driver's licence annotated.
My handyman rang this afternoon, and he will be here tomorrow. I will be glad to get all these various repairs and improvements done.
In the afternoon there is a birthday party to attend, for my son's godmother, so I will be negotiating the bus system. And I am considering how and if I can get to choir next week. Perhaps I will have to lash out and get taxis.
Generally I feel rather subdued and bashed about. It takes some adjustment, to realise this device will be with me for evermore, yet another part of the ageing process. And it was all something of an ordeal. But all's well that ends well.
