not dead – lockdown 3 day 2

Another full lockdown, but thats not the point of this post. I wanted to touch base cause I know some people might be concerned.

Basically, I’m in hospital in Athens via the hospital on Syros and the health center on Paros. I had a very bad gall bladder attack, a difficult surgery and then complications after surgery.

I’m feeling ok now, just attached to a drip via a port and stuck in hospital waiting for another test so the doctors can pinpoint the problem and choose the best way to treat me.

I miss home. I miss Lainee and Eric and no one messing with my veins. I miss being outside a hospital! Its been 2 weeks of this now…. sigh.

Anyway, believe me when I say I composed a ton of very hateful posts during my time in pain… the greek hospital system sucks big time. Maybe by the time I share my misadventure I wont be as vitriolic…

Whatever.

More later. Not sure when. Maybe I will feel up to posting again from here, maybe not. I predict another week in hospital the way things are going…

  1. You are right I have been wondering what happened to you! I’m so sorry to hear this! I’m sorry you’re in a Greek hospital not an Australian hospital. It’s bad enough to be in any hospital but a bad one is even worse. I hope Lainee and Eric are doing well I hope you get out soon.

  3. You will be in my daily prayers. I hope that you can find some peace and rest during this challenging time for you. Easier said than done but it will help you recover quicker. Please try.

  4. Awww, Zefi! Is that a PICC line? Katie still has one in from her second surgery regarding her hip replacement and debridement. I help her get the medicine (antibiotic) in. I hope you’ll get out of the hospital soon and back home where you’re more comfortable. Best wishes in healing.
