Hi guys, thank you all so much, for the well wishes for my holiday.
I`m afraid I dont have a funny tale to tell, although we did have a few laughs.
The journey there upset my spc wound and the pain in my side, since having had the op, 10 weeks ago.
The weather was poor, but we managed to sit on the cliffs overlooking Filey bay for 10 mins, one day, before a massive gust of wind almost blew us off it! I had a mouthful of grass, and the Christines lost their footing, so we headed inwards for a Starbucks hot chocolate and wedge of carrot cake!
The lounge in the caravan had fitted wraparound seating, but I couldnt get near enough in the portable hoist, to get sat comfortably, so I spent more time in bed, to get my tum straightened out, than I do at home!
I was looked after and fed well by my girlies, so chocolate featured heavily!
Had to call a nurse out this morning, as my spc wound has been bleeding a bit and looks iffy. She said it is on the verge of ulcerating and it was caused by all the trundling friction and is raw! She is going to take a swab tomorrow or Tuesday and get me some special dressings for it.
Tomorrow afternoon, I have an appointment with a new neuro and I have a list of things i want to talk to her about.
the chronic pain in my heels, which the district nurses have been treating as pressure pain for 2 years! Despite trying 3 expensive pressure relief mattresses, 3 types of heel protectors and a variety of barrier creams, they now think it could be nerve pain…so I`ll be asking for pain relief for that…
this nagging ache in my legs, caused by foot drop…
a referal to physio for leg movement, as they feel
So sorry guys, I have failed to provide you with a titter or two, as I had hoped.
I think I should`ve left the holiday till another time.
Good to be home again.
