Just wanted to share some good news with you all. A lot has been happening in my recovery world lately.
Had an offer accepted on our house and one accepted on the bungalow we are looking to buy.
Downsizing has included donating some furniture to a Nigerian family who are moving here with their dad who is a theatre nurse at my local hospital.
Im restarting a few hours work from 1st May…my employers gave been brilliant throughout.
My car is on order through the awesome Motability scheme. Due in a few weeks.
Finally my physio harnessed me up to a treadmill today and ive been walking much more normally on it for what fwkt like ages but really was just a few minutes… he had to stop me as i wanted to carry on and keep on keeping on (@Bobbi - birthday boy).
Im absolutely buzzing and having accepted my stroke, my currently disabled state, adapted my life as a resultwith the love and care of my amazing family and friends and the expertise of the professionals…
Life is good - different but definitely good.
I wish you all a Good Friday and a very enjoyable weekend, whatever you can and want to do - keep happy and let the grey clouds bugger off somewhere else.
Much love to all
Ps now to sort the washing out while Julie is at work xxx
Great news, You’ve really cheered me up following my recent rant. We downsized to a 2 bedroom bungalow 2 years ago. We have since built a large extension on the rear and now have a large open plan kitchen living room which has made such a difference to our lives, with lots of room for visiting grown up kids and grandchildren. I can honestly say it’s the best thing we’ve done. Good luck with your house negotiations, hope it all goes well for you and your family.
Keep on keeping on with your recovery, sounds like you are going great guns. A big well done to you.
Thanks Sue that a really lovely message to read xx. The one we sre looking to buy has a gmdorma with 2 bedrooms and a bathroom for our lads to have their own floor!!!
The downstairs space is ideal for us wirh an orangery etc!!!
Love the sound of your place though x
Justboff to put the finsl washing on before my wife gets in from work x
Can I ask you about the treadmill ? My physio recommended one to me, she was saying that she found the sub conscious took over ? Ie you didn’t need to think about walking pre stroke and this was a good thing to try to get that sub conscious back in charge ?
Wonder what you thught ?
