Today is day 10 from my surgery and I am up and dressed at 8am - huge progress. Managed last night to lie on my side for a short while - Yippee!!!!! It was such a big step forward and made me feel fantastic. Still slept on my back - but just having the chance to change positions was wonderful.
I had a good day yesterday. It all started on Tuesday evening when Elizabeth realised that I was not in a good space. She decorated a lovely sponge cake for me and even brought it in with a candle for wishes and healing. I was so sore and hot, frustrated and upset. After a piece of cake, she offered me a bath. My beautiful girl, ran me a shallow bath and washed me. She had bought me a fresh, new sponge and took the time to wash my feet and legs, my back and arms. Just being pampered was wonderful. Then sitting me in the lounge, she corralled Matthew into helping her change my bed-linen - even though it was only 2 days since she had changed it. She put the air-con on in our room and cooled everything down. Result was that on Tuesday night I slept really well.
So thank you special girl for your love, thoughtfulness and time. I love you.
So today - Day 10. Woke up feeling so much better. Another day on the healing trail.
