FRIDAY, BYE BYE GIRLY BITS

Dinner last night was lovely... I wore one of my new outfits from Aussy... I loved it, hated me boobs. I am bloody sure I have gained 10 kilos on me boobs.... friggin things! I hope they are the first things to go once I start losing weight again! We went to the LoneStar Restaurant, they give the most amazingly huge meals!

Me and Stew
Mike and Abbey
Steve and Michal (new girlfriend)
Brylee... looking angelic.
Griffin.. the Restaurant Manager gave him the ball... !
My dinner.. Pork ... I only ate the meat, it was delicious!
VERY, VERY NERVOUS this morning, but I am sure all will go well.
Off to have blood tests shortly while Stew takes the kids to school, then we are expecting Steve to come over to care for the kids after school while Stew's with me at the hospital. The operation should be done late this afternoon I think....
I also plan on looking at Plasma TV's this morning ... my niece in Australia had one and it was so bright/colourful and clear! I want one! Doing that should kill the morning, I have to check into the hospital at 11am.
So with that.... I shall say "Bye for now".....
Blood test done, waiting to hear from Steve, then off to town. I (Stew) will update you all later in the day as to how things went with my darling wife's operation. Bye for now.
Well its 1.40am saturday morning and I am just home from the hospital. Maybe that's why you people like reading my wifes blog as there is always some drama going on and today was no different. We checked in at 11 am and the day dragged on with bits of prep here and there during the day. At 6 pm they were finally ready to take into theatre, so I went home for an hour to feed the kids etc and was back at hospital at 7 pm. At 8pm I was told she was just out and in recovery. At 9pm I was told that she was having a bit of trouble with the pain so they were trying to get that under control. At 10.30 the surgeon and a nurse arrived [I was really worried by now] to tell me that Chris had developed some bleeding problems and she was being transferred by ambulance to the public hospital where a team was waiting to try and sort out the bleeding. At 11pm she went into surgery again and it took 2 hours to get things sorted. They had to make a cut down the middle of her tummy to get in fix the bleeds. She lost over 50% of her blood and they had to put 6 bags of blood into her. The surgeon gave me the run down and suggested i come home for some sleep as she will be out of it for a while and will be in ICU until about lunchtime Saturday.
So I will be going back to see her first thing in the morning and will update the blog when I can during the day.
Thank you all for you kind wishes which I will pass on to Chris and I am sure she will read once she can get back on to the computer.
Off to bed now as I am shattered, been a stressful day. It's hard work fighting back all those emotions.

  9. Lovely pictures, and goodness that pork looked appetizing indeed.
    I would look at LCD before plasma. Just my opinion, but you should look at both.
    Best wishes on surgery!

  14. Good luck Chris!! Also on the TVs.. LCD High definition is much better than Plasma. Plasma is not the way of the future (ask my Stu that's his field of expertise).

  29. OH MY I hope all is well now... I am sort of cinfused but since I think they do things a bit differently here in america... were they doing a vaginal hysterectomy? in a clinic type setting? When I had my hysterectomy it was in the hospital and I was cut abdominally... Will keep you guys in our thoughs and prayers.
