Wow – Center Parcs is soooooo quite at 7:45am!…. Apart from the sounds of nature 🙂 It’s actually quite surreal and very relaxing! I have checked out the route and I should be there in 15 mins.
I do get a funny look from the receptionist when I explain I am here to see the nurse yet have no appointment.
Luckily one of the other nurses recognises me. Bad eh? They should do a loyalty card scheme here, I am sure I’d be entitled to a Platinum card by now! She is so lovely and helpful and says she will page the breast cancer nurse.
Woohoo, 10 minutes later the Breast Cancer Nurse arrives.
“I recognise your name” she says…:. .I have not seen her before….
I explain the funny wound and then she clicks who I am.
“I was your scrub nurse, I have only seen you asleep!” she laughs
She takes a look at the wound and reassures me there is nothing to worry about but she does want me to see the surgeon.
So I go grab food and return a couple of hours later.
I am called in .
“I know I wasn’t due to see you for 6 months but here I am” I say with a cheeky smile!
He takes a look and says that it’s nothing to worry but the wound has broken down and I need a few little stitches.
So there and then I have a little boob surgery. This time I am awake and intrigued!
“I don’t need antibiotics do I?” I say
“Not at this stage, you need to come back in a couple of days for the nurse to have a look how it is healing”
“Good, because I desperately need a GIN and I haven’t drunk my bubbles yet!!!!”
We share favourite Gins then I had back to Center Parcs…. just in time for my hubby to make his back massage.
That evening I have a gin and a few bubbles, I think I earned them after today!
C: Well after many hours of recon… I’ve had many many leaks. But despite the fags, Wine, and takeaways, they have all healed really well.
Bubbles?? Hope that’s not a bloody bath.. you let down… 😘 xxx
G: Cheap rose bubbles! Unfortunately not the real stuff. Brought it with us to save money!! . Should have brought the basta$d codeine with me. Numbness is wearing off! I did ask “you are not giving me antibiotics are you cos I really need a drink tonight ? 😉 “! Xx
C: Ha ha …. I remember when I had first op and they gave me antibiotics etc.. my sister asked if I was allowed to drink on them.
I said “I didn’t ask”
She said “Erm… don’t you think you should?”
I said “probably… but I was scared they would say no”.
It’s been a mantra ever since …xx
