Stupid is tLP's word of the day.
It's all stupid. Surgery was a stupid idea, HDU is stupid, nurses are stupid, doctors are stupid, and I am possibly the stupidest one of all.
I can understand that. A bunch of doctors sliced her open at neck and pelvis, slid rods down under her skin, and screwed them into her spine in places. It's sore. And the morphine makes her itch, and itching makes her wriggle, and wriggling jiggles the sore bits, and then it's more sore. And a cuddle might make it better but we're all telling her to stay still and not sit up.
We're all very stupid and she hates us.
But - and here's where I hope blogger on the phone doesn't shuffle the photos - take a look at her back in the blue tshirt, a couple of years ago. Take a look at her back minus the tshirt, 12 months ago. Consider the fact she has grown shorter, not taller, since then. And then take a look at the picture of her back behind the pillows currently supporting it.
That's quite a difference.
I hope she'll forgive us when she can get back in her chair and see for herself how she has grown.
It might take a lot of salty crisps though.
