On day two of recovery I am already feeling much better! The purple bruising has subsided wonderfully...the pain only comes when I touch it inadvertently., like when I turned over badly in the night! But I did sleep well again.
I now have a vertical black line under the eye which looks like an exclamation mark.....I have taken pics but I shall refrain from posting them in case it frightens the horses!
Phone calls cheered me yesterday and I am eating quite well.
My only concern now is going to have my stitches out the week after next! I am not looking forward to tha!
But I have stopped worrying about the christening on Sunday. For a little while it seemed that the baby might be rather startled to see a pirate throwing water over her! But I'm not going to be wearing an eye patch...
By Sunday I should be rather interesting but not scary!
The support of friends has been wonderful.. ....Facing this on my own has been made much easier than it might have been without my husband and children but very good friends have stepped into the breach wonderfully. Thank you God!
