Please let me apologize for not blogging for a bit. I did intend a few days away after the AtoZ, but admittedly, it got a little out of hand.
My reasons are simple. I was not anywhere I could access the internet on anything but my mobile phone. I am not going to even try to do a blog from a mobile. Its too complicated and would be full of errors- not that my posts are always letter perfect, I'll be the first to admit that, but I would spend more time correcting the post than actually writing it.
You see, I was in hospital.
No nothing too serious. Just cellulitis- a really nasty rapid spreading skin infection that causes pussy blisters and swelling. The treatment consists of 4 IV doses of flucloxacillin day over several days- a powerful antibiotic, that, when taken through an IV, burns my veins to crap, causing swelling and pain.
Immediately upon my release, I had to take The Wife to hospital for scheduled surgery.
Even both of my cars have been sick. My commodore for 4 new tyres and my Honda for a fuel pump- we're still waiting on the results of that by the way.
The Wife gets home yesterday but is readmitted today because of a post op infection.
And I've temporarily turned into a chain smoking grumpy man- as opposed to being merely grumpy. I can't even get drunk because that will render the antibiotics I am orally taking ineffective.
So what's a man to do when his starts spinning out of control?
Be there for his wife, and when there's time- light another cigarette. Because next week should be better, right?
