Transferred To Crutches

This is a view Jackie captured of the garden yesterday afternoon. It looked pretty much the same today.

She drove me to New Hall Hospital this morning for an appointment with Claire, my physiotherapist. Claire does not go in for false reassurance, but she expressed genuine amazement at my post operative progress. Just a fortnight on, although I am still in considerable pain, I have very good flexiblity, especially when compared to last time round, and am apparently walking well (with support).

I transferred to crutches and left the – too small – Zimmer frame with Claire. Jackie was on hand to catch us emerging from the consulting room.

I dozed away much of the afternoon, and this evening we dined on Mr Pink’s Fish and Chips.

  1. Due to the excellent care being provided by your ever attentive spouse – not to mention the supply of tasty meals on hand – surely it is inevitable that you make good progress. Well done Derrick! ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. Bravo on your speedy progress. The scientist in me wonders why this one is so much smoother than the last. Maybe the job was an easier one – less to fix? Anyway – great news. Thank Jackie for the garden picture. Wind chill factors have been around 0 degrees for the past couple of days. I needed a little spring.

  3. So glad you’re up and about and making good progress. I’ve been terribly absent from my blogging in terms of commenting. But I read yours and think of you often, Hugs, Natalie ๐Ÿ™‚ โค

  4. The garden looks good and you look even better-er than the garden! Keep up the good work, Derrick! ๐Ÿ™‚
    Glad after working so hard you ended the day with dozing and dining! ๐Ÿ™‚
    Prayers for the pain to go away and for you to heal and recovery completely.
    HUGS!!! for you and Jackie!!! ๐Ÿ™‚

  5. Good to know you are making good progress and that you are not overdoing the strong painkillers!

    I’m no doctor but i recommend a healthy dose of Laughter to relieve pain temporarily – repeat as often as needed. A little light potting or pruning may be taken if preferred!

    You’ll be off the crutches in no time!

    You’ll be getting my bill in the mail! ๐Ÿ˜‰
