Released and readmitted to hospital

20 – 27 June 2013

I was still on the drip which my mother in law administered because she’s a registered nurse.

My heart rate came down, temperature was fine and I seemed to be healing.

My dog Lilo kept me company and made full use of the heater during my week at my mother in law’s house 🙂

28th June 2013

We were due to celebrate my father in law’s 60th birthday in the bush in Botswana, but because I was still recovering from the operation, we decided against it.

My husband still went and I was going to stay behind at my parents’ house for the weekend.

The morning, I was suddenly feeling week, had a temperature and the shivers.

Had a chat with the surgeon and I had to make my way to the hospital ASAP.

I had developed an infection and needed to be admitted to hospital for further tests.

Got antibiotics and these in turn caused another infection.

I spent another 7 days in hospital and was finally released on 4th July 2013.

I spent a total of 22 days in hospital. This was not a fun experience and I would not wish this on anyone. The paid I went through was horrible and I’m glad this is over.
