Getting Back to Normality...

After 4 hours of waiting, 2 hours of unknown, 2 hours in recovery on the day ward, 12 hours of waiting on the general ward overnight for a doctor who never came and one very painful taxi journey, this girl finally made it home. Back to her flat with her darling boy whose nursing skills knew no end - even washing his girl's feet as she could not bend to do it herself and gently washing her with a flannel as she could not get in the shower or bath for 5 days.

And so she was recovered enough that on the Monday that her boy could leave her and the house and go to work and the girl could sit on the sofa and type. And read a little. And eat the chocolates her best friend brought her. And sleep a little. And hopefully, get back to normal very soon.

Thank you both. He's been wonderful.
Looking forward to doing things for myself again - it amazing what one takes for granted.

I hope you feel entirely back to normal (or better) soon. It's good that he can take care of you when you need him to. And that you let him. ;) I can sometimes be too independent and insist I can do everything, even when I shouldn't/physically can't.
