Nothing like your own home, rick, but seeing what newlands said, are you on your own. Some people dont mind and others dont find it easy.

Hello thank you, had a good night's sleep.

Hi rick, sorry to hear you've been in hospital but glad you are home. I think not needing ixygen js a good thing. It means there s something to fall back on if needed in the future. Take care. :-) :-) Alison

Hello nanaber slept very well in my own bed good to be home and thank you.

Welcome home, better than being institutionalised with the hospital regime although it is good to have the company and to know that there is someone there if you need them. Make full use of any help you are offered and don't be stubborn by trying to be independent. Keep well and good luck. Lizzy.

Glad you are home Rick and wishing you well. Take care xxxx

Oh thank you Lovelight it is so good to know that. Richard.

Didn't realise you were in 5* Rick. Really glad you are home hun. Lots of r and r. Build up your strength and I hope you feel better soon. There's good and bad in every profession and some docs just lack any sensitivity. Don't allow it to bug you - not needing 02 right now is a good thing.

With love cx

Thank you junespoon good advice. Richard.

Good to hear that your home & do not need oxygen. Do try to keep up with the PR as it will really improve your abilities in daily living. Start slowly and build up gradually

Best wishes
