Addz gets up early and heads off somewhere for a run while I supervise the pillows for a few more hours…beds can’t be left alone for too long ya know! We…Continue reading Days out and wheelchair pimping
Hello folks I know it’s been a few days since I’ve blogged but for the most part I’ve been asleep! After getting Home from hospital in Tuesday and my epic walk back to the house u spent the rest of the day in bed. Wednesday started with a layin, I just couldn’t get going. I…Continue reading Home at last: settling in, physio, hair dye and mobility aids.
Jam on toast and lots of good luck and goodbye messages already 🙂 I’m certainly going to miss this lot! After getting myself up and dressed I made myself some earrings to go with my cotton cord necklace and bracelet set. After finishing that I started chasing down staff with my business cards in hand.…Continue reading 24th and last day in rehab.
Up bright and early this morning (with both shoulders and a hip out of joint! It’s really hard to pop a hip back in when you can’t feel anything besides pins and needles in either arm!) After yesterday’s emotional meltdown I was up ready for a fight this morning but my morning was a little…Continue reading 23rd day in rehab and my last full day! (wheelchair drama, walking for miles and surprise visits from friends)
I had a layin of a whole half an hour this morning before scrambled egg on toast and getting up and dressed. My back is definitely a lot better when I take diazepam at night so I think I might stick with that for a while. I spent most of the morning reading in bed…Continue reading 21st day in rehab (sneaky visit home to watch Grey's Anatomy, the GF Easter bunny)
Today marks 2 weeks here at Aldeburgh Community Hospital and tomorrow marks week 5 in my hospital admission. (1st ever admission and hopefully my last for a LONG time) I have filled my room with stuff from home, my orchid, my beads, my clothes and it almost feels like home. I started the day with…Continue reading 14th day in rehab (race horses, the great escape and beading)
Fairly relaxed day today, I had a bit of a layin then got myself up and dressed. Physio man came to see me and I was introduced to the 3rd physio on the team. She seemed a little more hesitant about the EDS risks during physio than the other two but I gave her my…Continue reading 13th day in rehab
Day 1 in rehab. Woken up nice and early to a day with nothing planned. Spent a few hours making bracelets in the conservatory with the doors and Windows open. Then read lots, thank goodness for kindle. Got visited by Mum who bought me decent GF food and took me for a walk/wheel, my 1st…Continue reading 1st day of rehab
Hi folks sorry it’s been such a long time since I blogged about anything. I had a few thing I meant to blog about but after recent events they seem totally unimportant. I’ve been on a health and disability rollercoaster and I’m going to do my best to catch you all up before I start…Continue reading A long story short
So I was very excited to get my cooling vests in the post this morning. I was lucky enough to snatch the last 2 of the ‘Junior Cooling Vests’ from DisabledGear. I have been really struggling with heat intolerance, progressively since Christmas when I started developing symptoms of Postural Orthostatic Tachycardia Syndrome (POTS) Basically being…Continue reading Phase Change Cooling Vest Review
