384 hours in hospital …
H O M E
Finally dropped home after a longggg wait!
Mums already practiced the needle thing in my belly didn’t even feel it!
M🐻 built up the sofa so it’s easier for me to get up and down 💜
Linda came round and we had Chinese for tea 🍴 it was lovely! (Even if they did get my order wrong and take an hour to fix it 🙄)
So nice to be home with the puddy cat!!!
I feel like I’m trapped in a body that refused to work. My mind set now I’m out of hospital is that I’m better however my body has other ideas. 😫😐
Bonus slept the best I have in months! I was so exhausted I was out like a light.
This mornings struggles frustrate me enormously and do not bode well for the next few weeks.
Managed with a hell of a lot of help from my mum to have a shower and get fully dressed. (We have visitors later)
So lovely to have my godmother round (Jill) ⭐️ Fire is roaring and conversation flowing ☺️ we’ve been saying how her children are so like her and how I’m so like my mum 💜
MH is on the blink..posted a picture of my beasty (Wills) who passed a few years back and I completely fell to pieces 😭 no warning just tears upon tears.
The body armour:
B L O O D Y N I G H T M A R E
Brace is uncomfortable yet I feel helpless without it. Even being washed in my own bed I feel panicked at the slightest movement I make. C R A Z Y 😣
I’m so tired. My body physically aches yet I can’t sleep 😔 my head is swimming with thoughts and feeling about things beyond my control 🙁
10 days count down till my birthday. 🎂
Been treated to some fabulous flowers
Occupational therapy just left – made me do the stairs and show them how I was getting round. Even made me get in and out of bed!
They contemplated getting me to show them how I get on and off the toilet 🚽 yeah sure I lost my dignity weeks ago 😂 it’s fine.
S H A T T E R E D 😴💤
So I’ve literally slept since they left 😅 tea, meds, bed.
So slept till 2pm and had soup for lunch.
Had a lovely visit from Ella R and her mum Sharon 👯 they brought treats and I was Seriously spoilt! 😍
When I studied at Reaseheath college there was a cafe called “bootzone” one of my favourite places! I used to spend most breaks in there eating and gossiping 😁 I’ve just had a lovely surprise, Rachel – one of my favourite ladies has seen and commented on my blog 😌 its so lovely that I’m reaching people that I thought I wouldn’t see again ❤️
My bestie came round! She’s expecting again! She’s still a skinny Minnie though 😍🤔 how does she do It!! Marriage is also on the cards so looks like I could finally be a bridesmaid! 😁😅😍👗🍾
Doing a fair amount of sleeping. But waking is improving! But as I’m told Rome wasn’t built in a day and I won’t recover as quickly as I’d like 😔😐
Occupational therapy came this morning. Got me out the front door and into mums car ☺️💪🏼🚙 was hard but great!
Know I’ll be okay getting to Carrington tomorrow ☺️🦄🎉 P O N I E S!!!!
Falling asleep as I type on the sofa. It’s ridiculous how the slightest thing shatters me 😩😴💤
Eurgh!! The citizens advice man called 😴😷😐 did I want his help. Let me think.
N O T H A N K Y O U ! ! 🤔✋🏼
Time for a nap…going to attempt hair washing later 😉😍😁💆🏼💇🏼
So it’s half 8 and there’s been a bloody power cut. The whole house is down 😫😐
We’re down as an ‘priority’ case because the mother is disabled and I’ve broken my back
Healthy porridge for breakfast – twinkle enjoyed it too 😇😂
FINALLY GOT MY HAIR WASHED! 💆🏼🚿
Mum was. TOTAL babe and figured out how to seat me and wash my hair over the sink 😁😁
Birthday treat to meeeee
Flowers look gorgeous this morning!
Left over roast chicken sandwiches for lunch. 🍴
Unfortunately wasn’t well enough to make it to CRC 😔 so no ponies just yet….
So..after 21 days of ‘captivity’ i ventured out with mum to lidl…well this didn’t go as planned. Guess it was a harsh reality check. 😭
Pain has beaten me today, feeling pretty crap – couldn’t even finish my tea 🙁
Mums had to go into the hospital for an op so I’m home alone but it’s actually been okay ☺️ been reading and pottering about although my vision problems have other ideas 😐
The girls at work are literally the CUTEST! Got this :
Can’t believe I miss work more than anything else!!
Pain is high today – it’s on another level!
Body is clearly complaining about my short trip out 🤒🤕
Ate a WHOLE bag of dried apricots….💩 we can only pray and hope they work!
Can’t believe it’s been a week since I left hospital….there’s been good days and bad days – but “big journeys start with small steps”
It’s hard but Im getting there. The little messages, the inboxes, the snaps they all help and remind me this isn’t a journey I’m doing alone!
Thank you again for all your support and a special mention for the best momma🐻 love you incredible amounts and thank you for putting up with me daily and picking me up when I’m down 💜 you QUEEN 👑
I’m going to keep writing it’s just been hard adjusting to life outside of the hospital bed 😅 the rest of my book is eagerly waiting to be written 😁📝
