Difficult day today after yesterday, expectations were high.
Started off tricky with domestic friction about the usual teenager stuff,
Downstairs, breakfast a bit of dithering then a visit from 2 physio’s who put me well and truly through my paces and gave me more lectures on the virtue of time and that if I want to get better I have to be more controlled in the use of my limited energy and to SLOW DOWN.
I forgot to mention that I did get my whisky (single malt Mr L) last night and it was good, here’s hoping for tonight.
I have done little else today as I have just not felt like it and been exhausted, but still not been sick
The numbness in my face continues to improve and my blood pressure is now consistently ok, averaging out at half of what it was when I was admitted to hospital 4 weeks ago
If I am still around after midnight tomorrow, I will be past the first milestone of not being one of the 28% that die within 4 weeks, Avelia you can now put the policies back in the filing cabinet.
Nice call from Paul, my good friend from Dwygyfylchi at lunch
Helped cook a stir fry chicken for tea. but apart from that nothing more to say today, sorry
Hi, better late than never….
Yesterday was a funny day, I slept till 9.30 then had breakfast and slowly loaded the car with loads of rubbish for the tip. It took ages and nearly killed me, good job the boss was at work.
Back inside for a quick rest then on PC for half an hour before I made a sandwich and then bed for a couple of hours.
I was rudely awakened by the sound of a trumpet lesson downstairs, then Avelia took me to hospital via the tip, perhaps she should have disposed of me there, to hand my heart monitor back in.
Home for a nice tea, then watch an hours TV with Mrs H, then it was bed for me.
I am still improving on the tiredness front but by golly it is taking some managing but still feel confident about my time line with respect to getting back to work. Sorry guys I will be back.
It is very difficult as when I get up in a morning, I feel like a fraud and that I should be at work, but by 11.00 am I am totally knackered having done little. But I am on the mend that is the main thing.
Today is an important one for me as we have a long standing invitation to a 70th Birthday party, whilst I am aware I can’t go for long, I am determined to show my face, this will be hard as it is an evening thing and I am normally in bed before it starts, so I will be going to bed this afternoon just to give myself a fighting chance, I hope it comes off as it will be another milestone achieved as it will involve the use of public transport.
3 months ago, I could not begin to imagine that these things. that we all take for granted, would become such important challenges to me.
Avelia is teaching this morning and Laura has got a trial shift at Next, do they really know what they are getting, she will do very well if she puts her heart in to it, which I am sure she will. But they don’t do clothes my size so what use is their staff discount though she does see it as a major plus.
What I would give to be that age again.
This morning, I am going to potter and measure for some new blinds for the conservatory windows and then we will have totally eradicated the “Gothic” look in there that was left by the previous owners…
I am really missing interaction with people and can’t wait to continue my rehabilitation which hopefully, after a very busy medical week, next week, will involve me introducing this knackered body back into a bit of public life. I just have to get rid of my self conciseness that I do not appear normal, if I ever was, as the left hand side of my face is still numb and has dropped a little, it is worse when tired, also I tend to shuffle a bit, again when tired. I know very minor things, but these are the things that are on my mind, they will hopefully continue to improve. When very tired I occasionally also dribble slightly from the LHS of my mouth, I suppose this is just like a normal Saturday night for most people.
Hope you all have a great weekend.
