Glad to hear you had a good result Malc. :thumbsup:

Spent a long day in hospital myself yesterday as my wife Sheila had to have a complex hysterectomy and is feeling pretty rough and exhausted today. Surprisingly they may send her home later today, but I’m hoping they will keep her in for one more night, at least until she is able to eat without issues, and the full effects of all the drugs they pumped into her have worn off. At least she has only minor pains, but the next few months are going to be a long slow recovery, during which yours truly will be kept busy doing all I can to help her recovery. I’m likely to be very busy as she will have to take ir very, very easily, especially over the next few weeks. Time for me to put my cooking, ironing, shopping, household cleaning and other skills to their sternest test!

I'm sure you'll be well supervised  ;) Best wishes to her for her recovery  :)

Jenny had a hysterectomy some years ago and it is quite a long recovery process. No heavy lifting or strenuous work for at least 3 months. Our GP felt that 4 months off work would be better. So @daffy make sure you look after Sheila. I can recommend the “Margaret’s Patten cooking for two” book or a good take away menu.
The years have been good to me, it was the weekends that did the damage.

I'd be going with the latter.

Getting rest and recovering is more important than cooking.

Plenty of time for that when you're better.  :thumbsup:

I hope Sheila recovers well and is soon (ish) back to normal @daffy . As George says, takeaway menus are easier, as are anything that just needs a microwave.   :thumbsup:

Thanks evergone, much appreciated and I shall pass on your good wishes to Sheila - when I can get hold of her. Had an email earlier but I suspect her iPad and iPhone are needing charging, and a she can’t get out of bed to plug them in...... :doh:  I’ll ring the hospital and get them to sort that.


Please immediately write a manual and send it to me please @daffy

The Manual is already written  :) and has a Preface which is worth quoting here:

“When consulting this authoritative Manual, please bear in mind the following key point: under no circumstances whatsoever should partners or husbands (hereinafter referred throughout as ‘menfolk’) attempt to digress from the procedures described in either outline or detail.”

In short, the entire contents may be summed up in one instruction that is repeated ad nauseum throughout. I should point out that, with considerable help from others of her kind, the Manual was written - if ‘written’ is the right word - by my wife.

And that instruction? Well, it’s quite simple really:

“Just do what I tell you, when I tell you, and do it properly”.

 :D

Already sorted now, but can’t get to her until this afternoon as the Manual has already been invoked via email less than an hour ago. :(

Please immediately write a manual and send it to me please @daffy

I recently advised my nephew at his wedding reception: 'there are only two phrases that a wife wishes to hear: "Yes, dear" and "No, dear": I will leave it to you to decide which one is the appropriate reply for the situation you are faced with...'

I hope Sheila recovers quickly but, if you prove to be good, progress may be slow ;)

Seconded

Not entirely sure @daffy should tell that to Sheila or it could be him in the hospital :uneasy: :worried:

Damn! Just found out that yesterday was National Forklift Safety Day and I missed it. :'(
