This is the start of my last week its also the last of my 5:30am starts! The drive up took an hour longer than normal this morning so I was feeling pretty rubbish by the time we finally arrive, (kinda desperate for the loo too!) My first order of business after un-pacing was to request…Continue reading The Rehab Saga: weekend recap and balance training
Nice early start again this morning, I woke up in pain. My bum muscles are so so so sore! It’s really highlighted how little I normally use my glutes for walking and standing etc. Just half an half and hour working on those muscles and they hurt more than ever before! Guess that means I’m…Continue reading The Rehab Saga: OT, Water Exercise and more Physio.
Today was my first full day on the ward. After a slightly uncomfortable nights sleep I got myself up and dressed. Breakfast was a total failure. The GF bread was full of poppy seeds and I’m allergic. They’d run out of soya milk so my breakfast options were dry cornflakes or a banana…I went for…Continue reading The Rehab Saga: first full day and awesome physio!

So after an hour or so of intermittent Physiotherapy I got myself back on the…Continue reading 22nd day in rehab (old deer, beads and yet more wheelchair woes and self-indulgent emotional ramblings)
Survived the night flat much better having taken diazepam before bed so I’ll be trialling that again tonight. I’ve still go lots of orders to complete for the hospital staff so I got dressed and started beading early. I made myself a bracelet to go with my cotton cord necklace from yesterday I’d just finished…Continue reading 20th day in rehab (beads, discharge planning and walking lots)
Today marks week 5 of my 1st ever hospital admission, and since the 1st half of the day was spent doing sod all I thought I’d reflect on a few things. I started this journey thinking I’d be in over night… Just till the diazepam wore off… I was wrong. The last 5 week’s have…Continue reading 15th day in rehab (dealing with the emotional rollercoaster of chronic illness + back pain & vintage bargain shopping)
Nice early start this morning with a surprise cooked breakfast! Bacon, mushroom and toast 😀 thank you kitchen lady! Got myself dressed and presentable. Hospital transport arrived just after 9 to take me to orthotics. I arrived early and met Mum for a coffee/cake and a chat about the latest stupid Nigel Farrage related news…Continue reading 6th day in rehab
