This blog is part of my recovery, and I would like it to remain a safe place for me to share parts of myself and my life that people close to me may or may not know. As a result, while I'm not going crazy with privacy settings, I do ask that if you find this on your own and suspect you may know me, please respect my privacy by checking with us before reading any further. This obviously doesn't apply if one of us has given you the link!

Sanguine Saturday Rolls Around Again

Mum's surgery took place last Monday as expected, and she came through very well. We thought she'd be coming home yesterday but she began spiking a fever Thursday night that continued through Friday. There was also something a little bit off about her bloods, so they held her in a little longer; then when they went to remove some of the wires that were in her, her heart went funny... so she's still in hospital at least until tomorrow.

Success Stories:
I'm still here. I'm still trying.
I've cooked most days/nights this week and did everyone's washing.
I've been mostly following medical advice.
I called the lawyers to chase up that money.

Gratitudes/things that make me happy:
My friends
Grey's Anatomy

Challenge and cheer-leading statements:
Whatever my thoughts or emotions, they do not make me a bad person.
Maybe I'm not so stupid after all.
Recovery is a rose.
Where I am is where I am. I don't need to put judgement on that.

Shoot me the link if you post up any version of Sanguine Saturday (any day, any format, as long as it's positive-focused!) and don't forget to check out this week's list of Sanguine Saturday versions:
Sairs of This Lunatic Express: Positive Wednesday
Jennifer of Magnificasti Mirabilia: created
Ebullire of Reflections Upon A Brussel Sprout: Tubular Tuesday
Sonya of My Verse: Great Things

Take care of yourselves until next time, and may we all find our own small fences along the way.


  1. Not so stupid? My friend, your wisdom shines through in these posts so brightly.

  2. I, too, was gonna say... Maybe??? Drop the maybe, and make it an entirely positive... You Are Not So Stupid!!!!

    I am doing Tuesday's Child at I am *that* Crazy

  3. I hope your mum gets better soon my friend. It's awful when you have family members that are sick, it can be so taxing. Good for you for still being positive even when it's tough :)
