The boys are back in town

Or at least 'the' boy will be back ... on Sunday!
2nd year of uni finished now and he is home for the summer. So tomorrow entails a 300 mile round trip up to Sheffield to fill our car with boxes and books and printers and amplifiers and speakers and guitars and cooking equipment and clothes and dirty washing and bed linen .... then he will drive himself home in his little car on Sunday with whatever we couldn't fit in. Plus we have friends coming over in the evening to watch the first England game in the World Cup. I have a feeling it's going to be a long day .....
When I say 'we' are going up, it may be just my husband as our daughter is really quite poorly after her hospital visit yesterday. Seems to have had a nasty reaction to the anaesthetic and is dizzy, tired, sick, aching, head hurting - you name it. Hopefully now 24 hours have passed she will start to improve but there are no signs yet of it getting better. We'll make a judgement call tomorrow morning to see if I am comfortable with leaving her on her own without her passing out/falling down the stairs/falling asleep and leaving the cooker on/forgetting when she last took painkillers and taking more after half an hour etc etc.
Looking forward to having the four of us asleep under the same roof again, it's a great feeling for a mum!

Such a good mum you are! Hope your daughter continues to improve. I tend to react badly to anesthesia and need to tell docs that, so that they take me off it gradually.
Tomorrow's game should be epic! DS Henry is skipping a baseball game to stay home and watch it. His coach is a bit perplexed, but it's a casual league and Henry has his priorities!

Poor girlie, I do hope she's much better tomorrow xx

Good luck to you, too, Deb! Enjoy having your brood back in the nest :-)

Gosh, I really hope she is feeling a whole lot better this morning. It does sound like she is being well looked after though! Send her my best x
