Goodness, it's been a whirlwind since I got home on Thursday. On Friday, we had loads of bits and pieces delivered, including the specialist riser chair which has been a godsend! The carers have been coming as planned and everything with them has been going smoothly, so again, that's fantastic.
Saturday and Sunday were spent sorting things out - or, more specifically, my husband doing so and me making lists. I also got a hair wash; thanks for the inflatable basin (you know who you are) which worked a treat - clean hair makes a huge difference to how I feel! I have been overwhelmed by the love and support all my friends and family have given me and, quite frankly, I don't think we'd have managed without it.
Today, I had a visit from the wheelchair service which feels a bit mad. However, it will give me an element of independence that I don't have at the moment - plus will enable me to get out and about to an extent - so it's necessary. I wasn't very good at driving it though... Guess it will take some practice!
