Nell: Now, you had a bad night so you’re going to have a quiet day today.
Me: I’m in rather a lot of pain this time.
Nell: That was to be expected but never fear we are here.
Me: You’re certainly keeping close by my side.
Nell: Of course we are.
Me: I think Dave’s struggling a little with staying close but not too close.
Nell: David knows he has to be very careful around you which is not easy when you’re a large animal.
Me: Bless him. Darling Big Brave Beautiful Boy.
Nell: So, the operation went extremely well.
Me: It did and thank you for all the messages of support.
Nell: They’ve removed a large area around the original scar.
Me: Yes. I have 14 stitches.
Nell: The lovely lady Diane who performed the procedure didn’t want to leave it at 13 so she put another one in.
Me: She did and I’d like to thank her for looking after me so well.
Nell: She was there for your first procedure too, wasn’t she?
Me: Yes. She’s one of those no nonsense type of people.
Nell: Which is exactly what you need in situations like that.
Me: You would know.
Nell: These things are best done and dusted.
Me: They are. My special nurse Sophie popped in to see me.
Nell: She will be looking after you over the next year.
Me: Yes, I’m seeing her in 3 months and can call her if there’s anything I’m worried about.
Nell: All you have to do now is rest and recover.
Me: Yes. I think today might be a pyjama day.
Nell: The llamas would agree.
Me: Have the bowler hats and spectacles gone?
Nell: Unfortunately not. Now, back to bed, please. You need to rest.
Me; Yes. Sorry.
