I know I am stating the bleeding obvious, but support from your family and friends is so important when you have this sort of thing going on. I am particularly grateful for the fact that a few people have descended to my base level and provided me with appropriate drawings. The main image is taken from a card I received from a close family member, known for her artistic talents, whilst this delightful image has adorned our family calendar for the past weeks, as a reminder that today is the day I will have to clear out the old bowel ahead of tomorrow’s operation.
As I write this piece, I am consuming the now famous Moviprep concoction that will, over the next four hours, cause me to spend most of my evening on the loo as the order is given internally to “EVACUATE, EVACUATE”. So if you fancy coming round to our house for a night of comedy, as I select a range of sweary words to use whilst my bum becomes all too familiar with our toilet seat, then you are most welcome.
On a serious note, I am hugely thankful for all the support received in the form of messages and cards, texts and emails and even the odd traditional phone call over the past weeks. Even those with shit drawings in them.
I will update the blog as soon as I can after the op and will report live from the hospital ward.
Now I need to locate the family pack of Andrex moist toilet tissues ahead of this evenings show.
