Month 9, Day 7: Elizabeth is in Hospital!

Thankfully not a drama but planned. She has a strange foot tendon thing called plantafasiartis and it means ongoing foot pain. Final straw is an operation done this morning. So far so good, overnight in Glenferrie Private Hospital which is right next to the Hawthorn Football Club so maybe a bit of winning magic will cross the road to the healing tendons. Then it is a week on crutches and a month or so building back up. Mitch and I are all set to treat her a bit more specially.

It does make one reflect on aloneness. I am here tonight by myself and Mitch is at work. I really hate been alone at home for extended periods, I measure it in hours. I would normally go out but with the breathing a bit harder at night I am TV bound. What I find really difficult to understand is people who get sick and live alone, just not sure how they do it. They obviously do but my wishes are with them.

Still pushing the doco and of course the best way into supporting that in substance is picking up a Ferrari Prancing horse drive day in the perks. Believe me it is something very special for 2. Please click here for more details.

Off to see the Doctor tomorrow as I am now 2.5 weeks with no voice. Can’t even talk on the phone!

  1. Gee you lot are in the wars. Hope Elizabeth is up and around very soon and foot is all better. As for you being on your own, have you got anything good to watch on TV/DVD? A nice tasty dinner for you? Something good to read? Do a bit of pampering for Pete? No good to hear your voice is still missing, how difficult for you. I’m raising my G&T for you right now and wishing you all the best. Julie

  2. All the best to Elizabeth and a speedy recovery. Terrible about your voice, thank goodness there is social media. Hope you won’t be lonely for too long Peter…….
