Getting on with it
Days out and weekends away are definitely more daunting than they used to be and require a lot more stringent planning. Things that never took any consideration before are all of a sudden an issue such as access to toilets, narrow doorways etc. That said, now that I can get up on the crutches it makes these obstacles a lot more manageable. Obstacles aren’t necessarily a bad thing as long as you can look at them as a learning experience rather than something that’s been put there just to catch you out.
I have missed a lot whilst in hospital over the last few months. I have had to watch on jealously whilst holidays, stag dos, birthdays and weddings that I was supposed to be frequenting rolled on by. This weekend however marks the first social event that I swore to myself I would make, even if it involved another great escape from the hospital. Making the Moss wedding has been one of the biggest goals driving me through the last few weeks of rehab and it feels great to be here and on my own terms. Billy and Anna have gone out of their way to make it as comfortable as possible but I’m sure this weekend will still throw up some new challenges. But whatever doesn’t kill you makes you stronger and all that…..
I can’t wait to celebrate the special day with these two legends and catch up with many more that I haven’t seen for a while. 🍾
P.s. Challenge 1: I just dropped the unit for my foot stimulater down the toilet 🙈😂 Couldn’t make it up…. back to the drawing board.
