|Oriental Slipper front detail|
I'm home from hospital with a shiny new hip joint and socket, a ton of painkillers which I'm tucking into, two new walking sticks, a sponge on a stick for a quick wash (no showers or baths for at least 6 weeks!!!) and a handy pick up thingy to help me get dressed, and pick up the things I can't bend down and reach for a while. I've donated my bone to help others have the treatment they need too which feels good.
I've got some great helpers supporting me, especially Andy, aka the crafty elf, Oli and Beckie and H and would like to thank them for what they've done so far.
I'd also like to thank all of the theatre staff, especially my anaesthetist who was just a darling, the nursing staff including my oldest and dearest friend Linda and the three physio's at the Royal Orthopaedic Hospital, Birmingham for all their help and support over the past few days. They made what could have been quite a traumatic ordeal into quite a pleasant stay all things considered !!! lol. James Martin, the gorgeous chef on Saturday Morning Kitchen has recently revamped all the meals at the hospital so we, the patients were treated to an amazingly tasty choice of food three times a day. Its not going to be the same at home !!!!!!
