Good morning Jules
Bet you are enjoying this spell of good weather.
Yesterday was the time when I was told I could have my hair washed. Mrs B had to do it for me. I cant tell you how god it felt to get rid of the dried blood that was still in my hair. It sfunny but I have not had hardly any pain since then more of a ache than anything so have stopped taking the paracetamol. My diabetes is returning to near normal so everything is looking good. I am feeling the best since this all started. I am able to go up and down stairs like a five year old now ha ha. Funily better than before this all kicked off.
The advice the hospital gave me about not doing anything much seems at odds with the paperwork they gave me which advises to get as active as soon as possible to avoid blood clots. So I am using common sense and if I feel I am overdoing it I will pause whatever I am doing. Manged to help Mrs B with the housework yesterday (I did the hoovering up and downstairs and washed the kitchen floor with the sponge mop we have) Despite her own problems, Mrs B has looked after me briliantly I have to say even though it has taken it out of her. In a funny kind of way, I think it has taken her mind of her forthcoming op At least she has not had much time to dwell on it. The time has flown by and cant believe I have been home from hospital for two weeks tommorow.
My woodclub mates keep phoning to see how I am Someone else has taken over organising the August show I had been working on as I shall not be able to take part myself.
Have you managed to re-start your reading yet? I know you used to like sitting in your garden reading. Mrs B brought me in a book to read when I was in hospital but I didnt find it that good even though its by James Patterson plus another writer. It s certainly definately not one of those you cant put down once youve started. I will finish it but not just at the moment.
Hope you have an enjoyable weekend and the wedding goes well
Sending kind thoughts your way, Brian
