Good morning all…just with 2 minutes to go till noon.
Been having a recurring pain in me feet of late…oh sooo chuffin` uncomfortable, both in and out of bed.
So hubby got the splints out of the garage for me…expected them to be all mouldy, but no, just a few cobwebs on them.
Carer put them on me and instantly the feet felt better.
What happens is, through there being no muscle strength left, as I lost all standing and walking ability some years ago…my feet flop sideways and even more horrible, in bed, the tops want to flop forward towards the soles…does that make any sense? I use a cradle to keep the bedding off my plates of meat…a huge size 7/8! Then there`s always heel pain to contend with and I keep them hovering on a pillow…which needs adjustments through the night.
So here i am, in my recliner, wearing these massive blue and back velcro fastened splints.
a good job Strictly aint on, that
s all I can say...cos I always get me tuille frock and sparkly dance shoes out for that!!!
ps I`m awaiting an OT assessment again!
