I have not posted for a few days due to my impending visit to the Fracture Clinic. I arrived there at 2:30pm (thanks Dad), and was told to go and wait outside X-Ray. Read more…

Fracture Clinic

July 16th, 2009 No comments

I did not go to work today, as I was going to the hospital. My check in time was 1:55pm, but Mum and Dad were busy this morning at the field, so I did not want them to come and fetch me from work.

Nearly there.

July 14th, 2009 No comments

It is nearly time for the X-Ray at Warwick Hospital. I am now thinking that they will find something wrong, and not allow me to start putting proper weight on my leg. Hopefully, that is just a bit of negative thinking on my behalf. At the weekend, I stood on the scales with my right leg, and on the floor with my left. I made the scales read 5 stone (32Kg), and there was no pain whatsoever. That, I hope, is a good indication. We will see in a couple of days. Apart from that, it was the same old stuff today.

It is one week until my return to Warwick Hospital for the fracture clinic. I am hoping that all is going well, and that I will be given the all clear to start putting weight on my leg. Read more…

5 weeks and a Kozi Quiz

June 24th, 2009 1 comment

Again, as the title says, it is 5 weeks today since the surgery. More exercises done, and hopefully closer to a full recovery. It is 3 weeks tomorrow that I go to the hospital for further X-rays to see how the bone is healing. My scar has been a bit sore today, but massaging it seems to have helped it.

I was home alone today, and so breakfast took a bit of time to take through into the dining room. I had the usual Weetabix, and drank the milk from the bottle, (no one will ever know…). I did my post breakfast exercises, and relaxed in the chair for a while. Before I knew it, it was lunch time, so I made my way to the kitchen.

X-Ray Monday

June 8th, 2009 2 comments

I woke up late this morning, and got up late as well. I thought Mum and Dad hadn’t got up, so I was buggered if I was going to get up. Turns out, they were already up…

I went for a shower this morning. First one in 3 weeks! The last one I had was just before the fall, so I was probably overdue one. Took a bit of messing about with the zimmer to get it into the right place to get in the shower, but I managed it. Mum and Dad have a seperate shower, so that makes it a million times easier than trying to get in a bath. There is only a small step to get into it, and the floor is not slippy at all.

Come on Button!

June 7th, 2009 1 comment

I woke up this morning fairly early. Not quite as early as yesterday. I looked at the internet, and the blog stats. Plenty of graphs there to look at. I got up around 9am, and had a shave. I used Dad’s shaving foam, as mine ran out in Shanghai.

I went downstairs using my crutches rather than arseing it. Much easier than I thought, and quicker as well. Once downstairs, I had 2 Weetabix™ with milk but no sugar, and a glass of orange juice. I have said it before, my body is now a temple.

Back in Blighty

June 6th, 2009 No comments

Woke up early this morning. I still haven’t found the most comfortable sleeping position yet. However, I did roll onto my left side, and it was not too painful. Not real pain, but just pulling and stretching at the muscles. If I continue to do that, it should ease off more and more. I read for a while, and have nearly finished “Sigh for a Merlin”, and then I wrote a word document with yesterdays blog, while it was still fairly fresh in my mind. I managed to nip into the bathroom when Mum got a phone call, and get myself washed up for the day.

Repatriation Day

June 5th, 2009 4 comments

I woke up at 4:40am.  Got ready, and was waiting for the flight nurse (Nurse Jane) at 5:30am.  Ma Yan went onto the balcony, and looked for the car.  It was in front of building B.  The Diamond Court security turned up, and a few seconds later Nurse Jane called to confirm the room number.  She was at A1307, so I told her to come to A1105.  She arrived, and then gave me a quick check over of blood pressure, O2 saturation, heart rate.  All were normal.  She then gave me an injection to help prevent DVT whilst on the plane.  I asked her to tell me when she was going to do it, but she had already jabbed me and finished!

Children’s Day Part 2

June 1st, 2009 No comments

Bob arrived at 10am for a visit.  Whilst he was here, the surgeon assistant arrived to change my dressings.  Bob and I chatted with him, and he said that I need to come back here 4 weeks after the surgery for an X-Ray.  This is to see how the bone is healing.

I told him that I was going to be in England when then was, and he looked thoughtfully at me and said, “I think they can take X-Rays in England.”  I was very relieved to hear that!  He also confirmed about taking the stitches out on Wednesay.

Bob was saying that he was going to the Shangri La hotel for Sunday brunch this coming weekend, as it had been so good on a previous occasion.  Prawns as big as your hand, was one of the comments he made.

I zimmered about after lunch, and sat in the chair reading “Sigh for a Merlin” by Alex Henshaw, about his role during the war of being a Spitfire test pilot.  I have only just started it, but so far, so good.

I have skyped Hugh, Gina, Mum and Dad today, so everyone is fully up to date with all that is happening.  Tonight, I shall just relax and read some more, and maybe watch some tv online.
