My doctor's note runs out on 26th June - so I guess I'll be able to go back to work after that. This is quite an exciting prospect :-) I still have a sore mouth - and stiff neck and shoulder - but I'm sure they'll be so much better in another couple of weeks. I have a meeting with Occupational Health on June 8th - so I might have a starting back date by then.
Just to practice I drove to Silverdale and back by myself today. There was an exhibition being opened in one of the show homes in the new housing estate, Heritage Park, about the old Silverdale mine. The housing estate is built on the site of the old pit - so it was quite nice that they were remembering the history. The mayor of Newcastle opened the display of old photographs and there was coffee and pastries. It was very nice. It was so hot though! I had to find a shady spot in the garden to stand in.
I have something else to look forward to as well - we have been invited to a wedding - in Slovenia! I have never been there - or even thought about going there, but I am very excited about it now! It is going to take place in a lovely hotel on the shore of Lake Bled. It looks very pretty on the internet :-) I wasn't sure if I would be up to it - but now that it is closer I feel so much better - so I think I might make it. I have to get my consultant's permission to go though - in order to get insured. I'll ask Dr Gahir, when I see her on June 11th.
I am just hoping that I will be able to get my feeding tube taken out before I go.
You know how Dr Who ( or should I say "The Doctor"?) has two hearts? Welll, when I've had my PEG removed I'll have two belly buttons. One above the other...I won't be able to wear a bikini any more - people will think I'm an alien :-)
