well got back from the hospital a bit wiser in that they have decided what op they are doing but not wiser re the date as i have to have another op first and it depends when that one can be done,lol.sound familar anyone.for those who know me or follow my blog will know i am waiting for an anigram on my aneurysma but they decided to wait till after the knee op.now the knee op will have to wait till i have an op to strip my varicus viens first.that again has to wait till i comeoff the bloodthinners and the blood has even out that can take 10days to 3 weeks.the hospital managed to fiot in an appointment with the gefas(vien)ambulance on friday.they are slotting me in as they normally have no appointment before middle march(lucky me)so friday i have the gefas specialist at 10 then straight after i have an appointment in the othopedic hospital at 12.luckily they are directly opposite one another.wednesday i have to go to my normal gp who has hopefully then contacted the encrinologist about going on theese new tablets instead of the bloodthinners after the op as they are alot better when you need an op unlike the bloodthinners i am on they can be took up to two days before the op,so several days less having injections in my stomach(definate plus)and can be taken the next day after the op.which is great for the two other ops i have coming.well they operation they decided on in the end is to have a knee protese(knee replacement)dispite my age.they will also relign my thigh bone at the same time so as the thigh bone is being moved i am going to have to learn to walk all over again as it will be diferant from how i walk now.this means i will have to be in hospital all beinng well 10 days then have to go to rehab for at least 6 weeks.which is alot longer than i was thinking off.needless to say lotfi is not too pleased and panicking what he will do with the kids etc.men he expects me to do it all alone when he is in tunisia when i am in pain etc but him doing iit alone,not in pain and with access to a car is differant.i can understand he is worried etc it is alot to do especial as we have to cook everything from scratch for zakariya.but his reason that it is differant me doing it than him because I AM A WOMAN irritates.ayman is due a break from his speach theraphy to be able to get the medical insurance to pay for it so we can take the break from it while i am in hospital which will be one less thing for lotfi to do but he will still need to do the lung specialist and allergy specialist for zakariya.will have to see if i can alter ayyubs heart specialist appointment which is due.lotfi also things we should start looking for another place to live as we have 75 steps up to our flat as we live on the second floor without a lift.i asked the dr re doing the 10 k i had planned for october and he said running is taboo from now on for me.i havenīt been running now for nearly a year now as it was too painful just been walking or nordic walking but i had hopes of running after the operation.he said i could walk but not run,lol.as there is a time limit of 11/2 hours for the 10k weather i can do it walking in that time i will have to see.also i had plans of doing a half marathon next year then a full the year after.he said i should forget the marathon all together as i shouldnīt even walk that.so i am really bummed out today.on top of that the book shop phoned where i ordered the eat to live book to say the importers have contacted them and canceled the order as they have none in stack and can only get more in 6 months time.so really annoyed all the books i wanted i canīt get for various reasons and legalities here in germany.the YOU ON A DIET,the EAT FOR HEALTH and now the EAT TO LIVE which i had been hoping to read when i was in hospital.i definately need that or some embroidery kit or something to do now in hospital especially as there is now the at least 6 weeks rehab on top.what am i going to do so long away from lotfi and the boys.i am not used to not running around doing stuff for them etc.not use to having time to think.what am i going to do without a computer so long,withou sparkpeople?we will definately have to try and get a secondhand laptop
so i can at least see the kids daily on skype.just that money is tight at the moment with lotfi going so often to tunisia with his father being so ill,getting the wheel chair and electric bed for his father.plus the kids birthdays in november,december january respective and on the 19th of this month is lotfiīs 50th birthday and i want to get him something special.never mind we might get lucky with the labtop yet then i can keep up with the skype.as i was down especially with lotfi letting off(it was basically because he is worried about me and the operation)that he was just going on about how he is going to cope etc he brought me an early valentines presant to cheer me up and say sorry.he got me anew sports watch,which does heart rate,pedometer,4 trainings zones,stop watch etc and it looks nice enough to wear as an everyday watch (as i havenīt got one and been wanting a normal watch for ages)and the best thing about it is itīs colour it is fuscha pink with abit of white. so i will always be thinking about my FBI agents when i look at it.so sort of makes up for all the worry i have had today and will have trying to sort out things so it is easier for lotfi to deal with the kids ,house etc when i am away.
my normal HRM has died the ghost and for a new battery for it is 40which we canīt afford at the moment.this is the next best thing which was on sale for 20.as it is doubling as a valentines present canīt complain at that price.anyway think that is all.will know more over both op dates on friday when i go so now you know what i know.thanks for taking the time to read this blog and a double thank you if you take the time to reply.take care and keep smiling.
