Or maybe even slower, that’s how I feel. I suppose it is very early days yet. The last couple of days have been clouded by feelings of nausea despite the four different types of anti sickness tablets I have been taking. Perhaps the antibiotics are to blame? Whatever the reason it has knocked me flat and made me feel pretty miserable. Still you guys certainly know how to cheer a girl up and yesterday I received some lovely paper butterflies that now flutter away around my fire surround.
My lovely little grandson, with a bit of help from Mum, made me this beautiful card, so a I have plenty of reasons to smile.
My strength is quite an issue, honestly I have to build myself up for the walk into the bathroom. Never mind having a bath which takes more energy than I ever imagined. I have devised a novel way of getting out of the bath now. Once the water has drained away I put a dry towel on the base of the bath that helps me to grip and eventually pull myself up. The whole process does however completely wear me out and I have to spend the rest of the day recuperating. For somebody who was used to having boundless energy this is all pretty frustrating but I suppose I must be patient. We are after all only on day 29 of the SCT and I haven’t been out of hospital long.
At least I am home for which I am very grateful. I am sitting in the conservatory enjoying the view of the open countryside listening to the birds chattering away and I appreciate being alive.
Have a great Friday and a lovely weekend
