The story of my ankle

Saturday night my ankle started to swell and feel very painful. I thought it was because I danced a lot at the wedding I had to attend. After the wedding, I helped Eric in the new pub and that's when my ankle started to hurt. When we got home I took a pain killer and went to bed. The next morning I was still painful but not that swollen anymore. As the day went by, it got worse and worse. I tried to help in the pub but I had trouble walking on it. When I showed my ankle to some people in the pub, they told me that it was very strange and that I really needed to see a doctor. In the weekend, doctors don't work over here (there is one doctor for one city during the weekend) so my dads girlfriend took me to the emergency in the hospital. They took X-rays but couldn't see what was wrong. Meanwhile I couldn't walk on it anymore and it started to turn red on the other ankle and leg too. The doctor was not sure what it was but he told me that I needed to stay there for the night. They gave me antibiotics straight into my vains. I thought that I could go home on Monday but it was Easter Monday so no doctors the whole day. I still didn't know what was wrong with me. On Tuesday, they told me I had a bacterium that causes infections. So I had to stay till the infections were gone. Finally, on Thursday morning, they took blood again and saw that the infection was gone. Yippeee!!!! Now I'm home but still feeling a bit dizzy in my head. My blood presure is too low.
The doctor told me that I got this infection because I was too tired and stressed. That can be true because working full time and then helping in the pub is hard. Oh well, we will see what happens.

Take care,

I was in the hospital from Sunday evening till today (Thursday). I'll tell you more about it in my next entry but now I need to relax. Don't worry, I'm ok. Just wanted to let you know why I wasn't online the past days.

Love, Isolde

The new pub is open!!!

Indeed, the new puh is open. The last days were so stressy because there were tons that were not ready. The last day I had the afternoon off so I could help to clean. The opening was on Thursday and they still had to install the new window and door at the front. The last working men left at 6.15 pm and the opening started at 6.30. When the first people arrived I was still wearing my dirty clothes. So I rushed home to change into a dress. The evening was a big succes and we closed at 4.30 am. Yesterday was the first day for everyone and lots of people came. I worked at school during the day and in the evening I worked in the pub till 4.30 am again. I don't have any pics yet of the finished pub but enjoy the pics of the last day.

Party and renovation pics

Last Saturday night we were invited to a big party. We all had to wear long dresses and the men had to wear suits. It was great to wear my long dress again. It has been ages since last time. We met a friend there and had a wonderful time. All the drinks were for free because we were VIP guests :-)

Some more renovation pics. Only 2,5 weeks left before it has to be ready. We are getting a bit stressed because there are still tons of stuff to do. The pics below are not those from today but I took them about 1 week ago. It has changed heaps already.
