At last

 I feel like using the computer and my brain is slowly unscrambling.   The District Nurse has just been and re-dressed my legs (I have developed Cellulitis) - after two courses of antibiotics they are improving and I still have ten tablets to go.  My walking is getting better and I can now do my exercises much more easily - so I am feeling very upbeat today. and

While I have been in hospital my gardener has been and neatened u.p everything, top dressed the beds and planted a whole lot of mixed bulbs.   It looks an absolute picture.  When I can go outside I'll take a few pics but it won't be for a few weeks.   An air cushion is coming today to easy the pressure on my bottom as I am in danger of developing bed sores - hardly surprising after three weeks without standing up!

I cannot fault the treatment i have had - the professionalism, the good humour, the efficiency, the food(!) - and I have every aid known to man to help me get around.   Added to which there is a beautiful blue sky today and the sun is shining.   What more could anyone want.

Thanks to you all you dear people for the support and good wishes - you will never know how much it has helped.


Off now to do my exercises and hot my sheperd's pie in the microwave - my carer made it for me and has brought it this morning - how's that for good service?

I’ve read your blog for years and never commented but I have to say today how very grateful I am that you’re well and back home! Your blog is always the last one I read, I save it like dessert. I love reading about your life, and your positive, accepting, courageous, looking-at-the-bright-side attitude is an inspiration to me, as I’m sure it is for so many others. I’m also glad that you can share when things aren’t so great because we all have those moments too and it helps to know we’re not alone. Many of us out here are just readers and not commenters, and I hope you know you have a whole lot of us “quiet” readers out here who are so happy and relieved to hear you’re doing well! Thank you so much! Char

Great to see you back. With good meals and great care, you will be fit as a fiddle. How lovely that your garden has been tended and you can look forward to a new large display of flowering bulbs next Spring. As garden lovers, we plan for the next growing season and count the days until Spring.

Barbara Anne said...

What a bother about the cellulitis but am glad you're on the mend from that and also that you're doing your exercises to strengthen you leg and hip.

Being home again with lovely surroundings, your carer (nice of her to bring you a shepherd's pie), other good food, your gardener's good work, and all of us our here cheering you on should have you right as rain in good time!

Your wise words, thoughtful stories, and good humor have been missed.

Big hugs!

Debby said...

How wonderful it is to see you posting again. I am sorry to hear about your cellulitis. This on top of a broken hip...and still you notice every bright spot. You are a very inspirational woman.

Heather said...

So good to hear from you again, and to know that you are being so well looked after. Your positive attitude and determination with exercises will pay off and you will reap the benefit. How lovely to have all your bulbs planted - something to look forward to next Spring. Enjoy the sunshine and keep up the good work!

You sound SO positive Pat, and that's so good to hear. Your garden will bring you such joy over winter and in the spring it will look amazing with all those fresh bulbs. It sounds like you are having exemplary care. I hope tomorrow is another sunny day : )

Pipistrello said...

This is all good news and wonderful you're back to the pottering about stage!

Penny said...

So glad things are improving. You sound very positive which is good. Love the idea of an air cushion. Thinking of you here in South Australia where we are in total lock down. No going for walks. It is supposed to be for 6 days and this is the start of the 2nd. It will be interesting to see if this works.

Lovely to think that Penny and I both follow you from so far away in South Australia and for me, not knowing of the other til today. I don't have a blog so I was pleased that I could comment for the first time, after many years, as I tried the ' annonymousI avenue.. Like many, hundreds it seems, you brighten our day Pat - you are the sort of favourite person you wished was in your family,a comforting presence and happy blessing . Take care and so glad you are back and getting better...Pam

I can only add my best wishes to what everyone else has said - wonderful to see you back in Blogland, and to find you so positive!
What you say about your treatment and the food (!) corresponds with what my mother-in-law (same age as you) in Ripon has said after her fall. She was in Harrogate hospital and has now been back home for a few weeks.

Sue said...

So lovely to have you back Pat. Take care and don't overdo the exercises!

Sue in Suffolk said...

Very pleased that you received great care in hospital. Lovely to see you blogging again. Take care. x

Sencosue said...

So marvellous to see your blog come up this morning. It's lovely to know that you are feeling good and that your care in hospital and afterwards was/is excellent. You will be out in your garden before you know it, I am sure, and something to look forward to all those bulbs your gardener has planted. I adore bulbs because they always fill me with hope for the coming spring. Take care, rest when you are tired, so wonderful to know you are back home. Regards Sue H xxx

Carol Caldwell said...

I am another that always reads but only comments occasionally and I too am so glad to see you back and so positive. You truly are an inspiration and I wish you a continued good recovery. You have a huge following of friends here in blogland willing you on.

A Smaller Life said...

You sound as happy to be back as we are to see you back. Full of hope and optimism as usual ... was the hospital food REALLY good or do I detect a level of sarcasm?

Take care with the cellulitis, it can linger for a long time and reoccur regularly. Never be afraid to ask for more antibiotics when you need them, something I'm always telling my Mum who has now lived with this for years and has nasty flareups when she 'doesn't like to bother the doctors' and leaves it too long.

Peter said...

Great to have you back. Take care of yourself and best wishes.
Cheers Peter

Rosie said...

So glad to read that you are feeling better, it was lovely to read your news. Hope the shepherd’s pie was tasty! Look after yourself and keep crossing off those days till the bulbs come up. Xx Rosie in rainy (again) Reigate

Before I began Doctor Aziba natural penis enlargement Product I measured 4 Inches in erect length, and 3 inches in erect girth. While flaccid I measured 3.4 Inches long. I began using his product, slightly skeptical I admit, and just 2 weeks later I was very happy with my progress. I measured 7.5 inches erect length and 6.5 inches erect girth, and 5.5 inches flaccid length. I was actually quite shocked at the huge gains I’d had, and continued using the product regularly, sticking to the usage schedule rigorously. After about 2-3 weeks I am 8.2 Inches in erect length and 8.1 Inches in erect girth. I am also 7.2 inches long while flaccid. This has had a huge impact on my life, not only has my sex life improved greatly, I feel much more confident and proud.
