A nice, standard ward bed became available in Southport this week but because of this stupid dam infection I couldn't move! Here's hoping it’s not another month before the opportunity arises again!
Also, in other infection related news, despite infection control assurances there's like 0% chance of it being contracted, it would appear our Paul is that statistical anomaly, so get well soon paulo! (Bit of small print, he picked it up prior to it being diagnosed!)
I used to have a big, bellowing, man-size sneeze, loud enough to clear a room, much to the disgust of Jenna. Now, due to a lack of abdominal and intercostal muscles, despite the same big build up I only have a sneeze equivalent to a six year old asthmatic girl and this now provides untold amusement to Jenna and disappoints me greatly!
Next up.... Weetabix!
Thankfully I can just about open the individually wrapped Weetabix myself and the sugar too but sometimes the staff are still a bit too keen and will do it all for me. This morning, for the umpteenth time, despite my protestations the sugar went on before the milk!! In what world does this make sense?..... anyway I think I might be getting a bit carried away!
So, generally I'm doing pretty good, been doing some rehab this week which is encouraging and have also got a new chair, much more like a standard wheelchair, so I can push myself around a bit now, the only limitations being my own feeble upper body strength! All of 20 metres usually before I ask for a push! It's all progress thought!
Right it's time to get in said chair again now, thanks to everyone, as ever love Mark.
Note from Betty.
I would like you all to know that Mark is now keying all this himself.
Also, check out the crossword tab at the top of the page, it's Mark's next challenge.
I just had to show this.......after my little rant yesterday this is today's Weetabix delivery, SUGAR FIRST.... it's just so not right!
Mark the Miffed!
