Once more - Percy came into hospital so that the Physiotherapist could watch me walk with him. She immediately condemned him as he had no brakes! He went to the scrap heap (RIP) and has been replaced by a Percy lookalike who the Physio christened Priscilla. Priscilla sits in my garage waiting for me to be strong enough to walk with her.
Yesterday for the first time I went out of doors and, with my walking frame, walked the length of my bungalow and back on the path with the Physio at my side. It was a lovely little outing. We are hoping to repeat the walk tomorrow, weather permitting. But if it is anything like today it will be doubtful.
The sky is very dark and full of something which threatens to f......all on us. I know that higher up the Dale (ie higher up into the Pennines) there has been a fall of wet snow. Here, at present, it just hangs over us.
I am very stiff today after my walk but as I haven't actually walked since October 23rd it is hardly surprising. I am doing my exercises twice daily and I hope that will help too.
So there is a vaccine about to be circulating. And as I am classed as 'elderly' I shall be eligible for it. Shall I have it? I really don't know what to do - it seems so untried. Have you any views on the subject? If so I would be interested to hear them. Until tomorrow...........
