Will I be shorter?

Hello.... how is everyone? I'm good - surgery is finally booked and the question is will I be shorter ....after Wednesday? Eek! It's due to take place that evening. I have to forget past surgery problems, get my head down and get on with it now... can't help being a little (a lot) scared. I should be out next Saturday, so I wont be home for Good Friday but eggs have been purchased and though I wont be able to do the egg hunt this year I will be able to watch it on Sunday. I can't wait. I also can't wait for things to go back to normal (like it's ever normal around here!) but mostly to be able to do stuff with the boys.

Food, food, food.... I can't wait to cook whatever and whenever I want. I want to feed people, infact I definitely want to do lots of feeding people and wine.... though I haven't missed drinking I would like to have the odd glass of wine when I feel like it.

I'll see you all soon... I'll have plenty of pain free time where I'll catch up with everything you've all been doing. I'm hoping I'll be able to wish you all a Happy Easter myself next weekend, until then... xxx

p.s. Hubs has said he may hi-jack the blog while I'm away! I'm not too worried about that, though he did say for a laugh he might take pictures of lots of convenience food and start raving about the benefits of it... If he does, don't believe a word of it. He's as bad as me when it comes to ensuring we all eat good food. Though I will admit they've had their fair share of fishfingers in the last couple of weeks...

Good luck with your surgery. I'll keep my fingers crossed for a speedy recovery.

Joanna said...

Very best of luck ... I'm sure everything will be fine, particularly if you don't try to do too much too soon when you get home - convalescence takes time, and lots of it.

We'll be thinking of you - tell your husband that if he's going to hijack your blog, he should give us updates as well as rants ;)


Marie said...

Will be saying lots of prayers for you and your surgery. I hope it all goes well and that you are back in the pink and cooking your little hiney off and blogging about it soon! (((hugs)))) I'm with Joanna, tell hubby to give us updates along with the junk food orgy!

Lydia (The Perfect Pantry) said...

Will be sending good energy in your direction with hopes that the surgery alleviates your pain, and allows you to get back into the kitchen!

Luck be with you Amanda. Tell your husband I would love to read his version of your my dear hubby always threatens to hijack mine :)

You wouldn't be normal if you weren't a little nervous. And you are doing well anticipation that things will improve. Wishing you all the best and a very speedy and uneventful recovery Amanda. Take care, couple of weeks of fish fingers and they'll be so happy to have mom back!

David Hall said...

Good luck Amanda! I'm sure it is all going to be okay. Thinking about you and looking forward to hearing your great recipes when you are back to full fitness.

Luv Dave and family x

Kelly-Jane said...

Oh very best of luck Amanda, I'll be thinking of you. Hope you are back to normal as soon as possible!

Hi Amanda, Just to put into written words what we feel. Good Luck for Wednesday - Everything will be fine - you'll be out and about before you know it - the boys were a pleasure Wednesday and Thursday - I'm sure Small enjoys your pasta more than mine - but he did eat it - I think, unless he fed it to the cat or the sofa - you'd better check the sofa. - Love You.

Hi Sylvie, thank you

Hi Joanna, thank you, I've taken note. Hubs has been superb during all of this very rarely losing his rag just getting on with it so I wonder if he would suddenly rant. It might do him good.

Hi Marie, thank you. I've passed on request to Hubs.

Hi David, thank you!

Hi Glamah16, thank you and I will. I seriously will. Don't want to end up in this situation again so will do exactly as I'm told.

Hi Lydia, thank you.

Hi CC, thank you, maybe they should do their own. I'm not worried, he had a great sense of humour. Actually perhaps I should be worried. He's very good at writing!

Hi Tanna, thank you, I can't wait for things to go back to normal. I really, really can't.

Hi Dave, thank you! It is all going to be okay. This has suddenly become my mantra over the last two days.

Hi Kelly-Jane, thank you. Hope you're doing okay.

Hi Mum, thanks, I'll check the sofa!! xx

Thank you all for your comments and well wishes.
Amanda xx

Best wishes for an easy surgery and speedy recovery. I'm glad you at least got a quick surgery date, though that of course doesn't help allay any fears!

Cynthia said...

Happy Easter and all the best with the surgery. Will be right here waiting for you.

Jenny said...

Good luck Amanda! Be thinking about you and sending good thoughts your way!

Cottage Smallholder said...

Good luck Amanda. I'll be thinking of you on Wednesday.

Take great care when you come home.

Great big gentle hugs

KJ said...

Hi Amanda. I hope it all goes okay. I'm sure it will. See you on the other side.

tash said...

Good luck with your surgery. If your doctors and nurses are anything like the ones I've met recently, they'll be excellent.

Sorry you'll be missing Easter but at least it'll be an Easter without a slipped disc!

Fingers are crossed.

Pat said...

Best of luck Amanda!!! I will keep you in my thoughts here and hope you will soon be back in your kitchen cooking up a storm and blogging about the wonderful dishes you will be fixing. Take care hun and Hugs to the boys. Tell that Hubby to take extra special care of you!!!! You need proper food to build your strength back up.

Deborah said...

Good luck and wishes for a speedy recovery!!

Aimée said...

I'll be thinking of you next Wednesday. Hope all goes well and that you will be back in the kitchen before long.

Pig in the Kitchen said...

good luck with it all dear Amanda! I'm very much looking forward to your hubby's contributions; he really would be capturing the cookery zeitgeist with his convenience food wouldn't he? I mean, just look at Delia's latest oeuvre!

Margaret said...

Good Luck!! Nothing wrong with a fish finger sandwich.
Happy Easter.

ChichaJo said...

Oh today is the day! Good luck and I'm saying a little prayer for you! Take care of yourself and take it easy!

Amanda at Little Foodies said...

A big thank you to all.

Today is the day, well this evening actually.

The mean, torn, herniated, nerve crushing disc will be taken out and then life can be fun again.

Take care all
Lots of love
Amanda x

I'm way behind on reading Amanda and by this time all should be fine. Sorry I'm late to wish you best of luck but I hope you are on the better side of the surgery by now and on the way to recovering.
Thinking good thoughts!

Angel said...

Ganbarre!!! I will keep you in my prayers and hope your surgery goes super smooth.

The idea of your husband hi-jacking the blog totally cracks me up.

Roz said...

Dear Amanda,

My thots and prayers are with you... by now you should have had the surgery so here's wishing you a speedy recovery. Look forward to having you back.
