Update from yesterdays semi productive day. Well its payoff day for yesterday yep day layed in bed.....sounds great but being in pain was not so good. Found it hard to stand and tried to get up only for my left leg to give way. Then noticed bruising on left side of chest , think I must have banged it ( cant remember exactly how at moment) thats one problem of having limited skin sensation on left side. Altoughgood thing is it doesnt hurt unless I really press on it so easy solution...dont press. Still would do it again and hopefullywill be ok by tommorow. Hope so as I am of to local football stadium for a game of botcha( think thats how its spelt) . Yep I'd never knew what it was either, its like boules only played sat down. Determind to go but dont want to return to using walking stick. Finally managed to stop using it about two years ago in time for my daughters wedding. So to finish on a positive ...yes I am in pain but I managed to achieve something and this pain will ease but my achievement will still be there.
