APOLOGIES ... AGAIN.

Me too.

I don't know if its the change in my pain medication, my coming up to being a woman of a 'certain age' (Mr T informing me, somewhat sarcastically I feel, that he can't begin to tell me how much he is looking forward to this), or what, but I'm feeling really rather sorry for myself.

Rather shamefully so given that our great-nephew, Half Pint (6 months) has been in hospital, part of that spent in ITU, since mid-February. 

In hospital over Christmas with what was diagnosed as Bronchiolitis, it seems he has had a relapse, on top of which his consultant is beginning to think he has something 'floppy' going on with his larynx (don't you just love medical speak?) that is causing his breathing difficulties.

Planning to be back with you Monday. I'm hoping that by posting what I plan to post I might actually feel the inclination to do so. So ...

On Monday I'm planning on a review of Andy Weir's The Martian followed by a review of The Double Axe by Philip Womack and, to round off the week, Tree & Leaf, Smith Of Wootton Major, the Homecoming of Beorhtnoth by J.R.R. Tolkien. 

But for now, if you'll be so good as to excuse me, I'm away for a shower. My toe (pictured right on the day of surgery) well on its way to healing, almost eight weeks on I think I'm safe to do so.

Feel better! ((HUGS))

At least the nephew is where he needs to be to get proper treatment. I am hoping for the best outcome.

Sending a big hug, Tracy! I'm sorry to hear about your great-nephew. I hope the doctors are able to help him so he'll be on the road to recovery soon.

I am looking forward to reading your thoughts on The Martian. I hope you have a good weekend, Tracy.

I know people say to be positive and all that but sometimes a small wallow in upset if you're feeling so inclined can speed up the process of feeling happier :)

Sorry to hear about your nephew. It's good that, terminology aside, the doctors know what's up.

If you've a post about The Martian coming that's surely something to brighten the week from the first :)

Hi Tracey,
Dropped by to see what you think about Apple Tree Yard.
So far I am gripped and I am looking forward to the book group discussion!!! Just makes me smile thinking about it, LOL. Wonder if we will agree?!
Sorry you are not feeling too good. Life can be very challenging. I don't do hugs that much, but I would give you one if I saw you and I am wishing you well. Looking forward to seeing you at the next group meet, if you can make it. Hope we don't choke on the cake! Pamx

Lovely see you hear Pam. Longing to know what everyone thought of Apple Tree Yard, I think next Thursday's Reading Group will be a good one.
