Since my last "blog" I have calmed down and got a little perspective. It's not the end of the world (that's a little later apparently haha) but it IS a difficult time. Regardless of my woes and worries there are people out there far worse off than me and others just as scared but braver! I just have to deal with this the only way i can...with a sense of humour(?).
So, how does my leg feel today? Tight! What does it look like today? Well, imagine if you will, a Doner Kebab fresh on a vertical spit, add at the bottom kankles and Patrick the Pink Starfish from Spongebob Squarepants holding varying lengths of chipolatas and that's what i am now seeing!
I also have horrible looking bruising to my inner thigh that creeps around the back behind me knee and peeking out the other side. Ouch doesn't really come close to the pain but i am treating it like i do my RA. I accept that it's there and i will just deal with it accordingly....i'll ignore the pain and give it time and (LOTS) of medication =)
My scar/wound/hip is sore too. Exercise seems to be a problem =( i try to do what i have been advised by the physio-terrorists but it is rather painful. I do fear that while i have DVT it is going to complicate my recovery and i will not heal as i should. When i go for my talk about the Warfarin on Thursday i shall ask them Pharmacist about this and hopefully i'll get a chance to talk to a physio about it too. I'm not the first to have had this happen to, and i won't be the last. We all know that.
So today I am just watching films, going on facebook and thinking about what the new year ahead will have instore for me. One thing i know for certain....it will NEVER be like this year haha
I will end this with another thank you to all that have been kind enough to pass on their "cyber hugs" and well wishes and understandings. I joined this site a while ago and only wrote on it once. I aim to rectify that and try to help people as much as your good selves are helping me =)
Thank you all
