I think J has forgotten that some of us can only see Lesley's FB page and not his lol, but with any luck Lesley will be here to post herself soon, and well on the way back to full health! I do hope so, she has promised to think about heading north to visit me :-D|

If she had open heart surgery, and I think she did, she will probably be off Funtrivia for over a month. I was off for a little over six weeks. I could only play a few games each day for a while.|

Jonathon seems happy and relaxed - and no other updates on his wall.
No 'daily log' might be frustrating but when I see Jonathon relaxed and into his busy life, I feel okay about Lesley. :)
However, a note a week would be nice. :D

Apparently so, Deunan. :)
And up to a message on her Facebook.......
"Lesley is home, fed and exhausted. Tonight is another sleep and tomorrow is another day."
Welcome home, Lesley. :)

Here's another update by the courtesy of FB....
has had lunch in Sainsburys, followed by some shopping. It doesn't get much more exciting that that. Unless you count the New Patient Health Check with my new GP tomorrow. :D
Thank you all for your support. Everything's mending nicely and very little is hurting but I am still available at moderate rates to frighten naughty children."
Sounds petty 'normal' to me! :D
Sounds, Very Good. :)

please can anyone join in?
Thank you for all these lovely posts. (((((()))))) Yes, reading them is giving me enormous pleasure, but I'm also enjoying taking it easy, so (selfishly) I read them, smile, and wander off again.
Here's roughly what I've been been up to for the last few weeks, because it wasn't what we were expecting. The plan was for Jonathan to present me at Papworth Hospital on the 14th for the op on the 15th, and I had been feeling well enough to keep plodding along at home till then, but it didn't quite happen like that. With less than a week to go, I started feeling feeble, so I called the beloved child. I probably should have have called an ambulance, but he was much cuddlier, and he took me to the local hospital on Sunday the 10th. They kept me in, and they took me to Papworth on the 15th. My transport was a non-emergency ambulance, and the crew were two of the most charming young women you could wish to meet. (That was a bit of a relief, because they could have have been one of the crew I complained about from the trip in March. Ouch.)
We knew that my aortic valve and root needed replacing, and we had discussed the sort of valve I'd have this time, but they were keeping their options open about any other work they might see needed doing when they got to it. They replaced the aortic valve and root, they repaired the tricuspid valve with an annuloplasty ring, and they also helped themselves to a bit of leg vein because one of the coronary arteries needed to be be reconnected. (Two bits actually - the first bit of vein was too thin to use.) The surgeon told us that he expected it to take between four and five hours, but it ended up taking a few minutes short of eight hours.
Jonathan was tearing his hair out but his lovely girlfriend was with him the whole time, and the head nurse sat with them and talked and made them tea and kept their spirits up. (Thank you lovely girlfriend and thank you Nurse Greg.) I don't know if they got a bit fed up with me because I didn't want to wake up. They try to wake you up after 24 hours but I didn't want to know. Goawayandlemmesleep. I wanted 48! Once I woke up, though, I didn't hang around too much. The best bit was probably eating again, as soon as the menus started coming round.
He's been here all week, washing and cooking, which is nice. We've also been shopping a few times, and he's pushed me around in a wheelchair. Once I got a motorised scooter. Once is probably enough.
