Home Adjustments

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!

We are trying to rest as much as we can as well, but with all the things that have been delivered and need sorting, it's difficult.  However, I very much hope things will start calming down now that most things are here, care and medical arrangements are in place and appointments are booked.  I now need to focus on regaining my muscle strength and getting more mobile.
