Just over two weeks post op – I’m doing great!! Much better than expected, but I’m still having remind myself that I’m still recovering. I’ve got a few people around me who have to keep reminding me of that, as I like to run before I can walk.
I have moved back home to my parents for a bit to recover. It’s reminded me of my transplant recovery. Getting the chair out for the shower, putting a bed up for me, a fridge full of food. What more could I want? This time though, im able to do far more.
I was discharged on day 5 post op
I baked a cake on day 6
Day 7 – Went food shopping and played with the cat most of the day
Day 8 – Went out for lunch and into town. I was given some beautiful flowers 🌷
Day 9 – visited grandparents, went to the RAF cosford museum, went out for dinner, did some sketching and went to a village concert
Day 10 went back home to Birmingham
Day 11 off to a Diwali Event
Day 12, relaxed
Day 13 – Dyed my hair
Day 14 – Did some sketching
I would say I’m pretty much back to normal apart from having to take pain relief.
Onwards and upwards from here 😁
