The stress of the current situation is obviously increasingly heavily preying on my mind, judging by the number and intensity of unpleasant dreams I have been having, despite bedtime prayers and falling asleep with my chotki in hand and reciting the Jesus prayer each night.
Lord have mercy on us all.........
On a happier note, I had my post-operative follow-up at hospital today and I have now been discharged as having fully recovered from my gallbladder removal.
I must admit to feeling really well, better than I have done for quite a long time. Apparently my gallbladder was so swollen and inflamed that it must have been causing me problems for a very long time.
Interestingly, since its removal, I have lost half a stone in weight without any effort on my part or any particular change in diet/lifestyle......added bonus :-)
