so i have been to the hospital yet again this morning, and i am now on the waiting list for my next operation.
they are going to take the metalwork out thats in, and get rid of some gristle thats also in there. then they intend to jiggle my heel about, and reposition it to aid me in my mobility, and secure it with two new (big) screws.
this is going to take place any time within the next six months so i will keep you posted.
me and the missus have been arguing a bit this last week or so, and as such i haven’t had the time to post or keep up with whatever you guys are up to. for this i apologise. the reason behind most of the arguements stem from murphy. (below)
you may remember me telling you that we obtained him from a rescue about seven months or so ago. a totally lovable dog, and a dog with a lot of love to give. but unfortunately a dog that needs a hell of a lot of attention, which is something we cannot offer him, what with the commitments that a six year old boy that now plays for a footy team brings to your life.
along with that was the fact that murphy decided that even with the kitchen door open all day he would rather do his “dirtys” in the house. in fact all over the house. this after a week or two becomes a pain in the arse, not to mention seven months. again, with a six year old……
and the cat. the cat we have had for ten years, another rescue animal. but she has not come downstairs since we have had the dog. when she has they have gone at each other like things possessed. not fair for a cat that loves to be outside. things had to give.
it was because of this we took the very painful and upsetting decision to return him to the rescue centre. harsh. hard for us to do. and maybe, you may think, cruel, but we can not afford to be replacing carpets regularly. and not something we took lightly. hard. but with a six year old……..
and so to the diet. i read in the paper on monday of a guy who has lost 15 stone in 12 months by eating three bowls of oxo each day (along with fruit and veg).
thats over a stone a month.
i am up for that. i love oxo!
and lets face it, they have different flavours now.
so with the thought that i am going to have a new op, and all that comes with it, in the next six months, if i can loose half a stone a month in that time, it will hel;p me considerably.
watch this space.
murphy, this ones for you kiddo. love you. miss you. but the best thing for all of us. sorry.
