Progress is going well!

Some of you may remember that I had an accident in December, fractured my pelvis and dislocated my elbow and was immobile for a month, well here is an update on my progress, hope I am not boring anyone.

In the last couple of months I have been able to get my own lunch, hang out the washing, cook a dinner for my husband and I. I went to Bingo a couple of times but found it too much as I am so tired by the time it finishes at 9.30. I have been driving since March and have driven to Hastings and Cornwall. I have also been able to visit my Mother in her residential home, it was the parking that got me there! Oh and I can walk round the supermarket with a trolley to do the weekly shop.

I went to see my consultant last week and my spirometer etc. readings were the same as before the accident and my sats were up by 10%. Just thought some of you may liike to know how I was getting on! Keep smiling.
