Home at Last

A short post today. Mum has taken ill, so I need to pay her some attention. After all, she has been there for me these past four months, making life so much better for me while enduring the trials and tribulations of the hospital stay. Let's hope she improves soon.

But at least the good news is that the hospital sent me home earlier this week. I got home on Tuesday - it's been hard work since then as it takes quite a bit to get about on the crutches, up and down on chairs - all those one legged squats.

The community nurse visits each day to change the wound dressing. All going OK there. A visit to my local Doctor, the pharmacy and the bank (!) on Thursday wore me out but in a good way.

Anyway, pretty tired so that's all for now.

See you next time.

Hope you're Mum's feeling better soon. Glad to hear you're home and making it about.

It must be a bit weird, in a good way, to be back in familiar surroundings after so long away. And also having to adapt to your old surroundings in new ways.

Have the occupational therapists descended on your home yet? :-)

Ha! Yeah the Occupational Therapists had already done a home visit while I was still in hospital. Since I was not going to use a wheelchair, there wasn't much work to do. A couple of aids for the bathroom and that was it.

Pretty lucky I guess, I have a few stairs but not many. Biggest disappointment was the new attic room I had built is substantially completed but I can't get up there to see/enjoy it until I get my leg!

Glad you are finally home.

Welcome home Alex :-). You have made it out of "prison" and are back in the real world, which must feel great whilst challenging. Hope you settle in quickly and easily. All the best to, and for your mother as well.

Hey Alex, no posts in a long while make some of us worry. Hope everything is ok.
