Still captive

Well I’m still in Hospital, I had high hopes of escaping home today but it just hasn’t happened. But it’s for my own good, I had an annoying infection last night which meant a crap night which was also interrupted by drip changes. Midnight drip I ended up sharing my caramel egg stash with the Nurses, midnight feast LOL

This morning I was more comfortable and thought the Doctors round would get me out, but they never visited, apparently I have to wait and see the specialist Orthopedic team and they never showed up.

The Physiotherapist did show up, she tested the movement and mobility in my wrist and hand, I have about 80% of usual movement, but the ends of my fingers still lack much feeling. It could be a while before my next Downward dog, I made the mistake of pushing into the mattress with both hands to change position and pain shot up my arm.

This afternoon I have been back on the drip and swallowing pain killers. At 5:30pm they said I’m staying at least one more night. Alas being here at 6pm means up with the T-shirt for the dreaded tummy jab, owwwweeee , they havn’t got any easier to endure.

I need some sleep, night night

    Hmm. Night night, sleep well, and hope you are out of there soon.

    Pushing into a spongey mattress is a recipe for pain somewhere. You’ll be limited, to whatever extent…. but it’s going to feel better on a mat.

    Chin up πŸ™‚

    Thanks Susan
    I was only trying to change position in bed when I pushed down, the pain was above the incision I think but it’s hard to tell with the dressings.
    Hope to sleep my drip just finished, I’m not hooked up to anything at the minute, first time in a week, no beeping monitors, still an arm full of canula

    I must build myself up a bit before I look at the mat, I’ve lost a lot of weight, I’m having to use the tie up on my stretchy jogging bottoms to keep them up

    But isn’t it a wonderful freedom / relief to be free of all those drips! I remember that from my hospital days years ago … πŸ™‚

    You’ll be out soon, and this will all be in the past before you know it!

    Hi Susie
    6am back on the drip, but at least none during the night so I have slept without interruption

  5. Helen Says:

    Hi Kevin, hope they let you out soon, any news?

  6. globie Says:

    Hi Helen
    Yes good news they are letting me out sometime today. Waiting for documentation, to be taken off the drip and for GP nurse referal. Them home to R&R. Wound isn’t as bad ad it felt under the dressings, though still mega sore. Slowly slowly but hopefully fit for Kino

  7. Helen Says:

    Great just seen on FB, you have 7 weeks until Kino I think? Take it easy, there’s is lots of time. It’ll be nice to rest up at home, I’m sure. No more early morning wake ups!

  8. globie Says:

    7 weeks to Kino, is that all.

    So any Teachers tips on how I restart practice without it getting frustrating? It’s going to feel like starting from scratch going by my hamstrings, the bed assisted LBH I did at the weekend is impossible now!

  9. Helen Says:

    Have you talked to the doctor about how long he/she thinks you need to rest for? LBH is perhaps a bit of an ambitious place to start?!

  10. globie Says:

    Dr said to do what pain allows, maybe best to start with easy seated Janu’s etc. Prasaritas and standing may be a bit iffy, don’t want to zonk out. LBH see what you mean.

  11. Helen Says:

    Okay I will email you over the weekend

  12. olddude Says:

    You can accomplish much with very small movements. Dont forget it’s not all muscles,tendons, fascia etc. The nueral component is huge. If you wants some fun do your practice is your head via visualization,you might find it very interesting.Good luck and thank something that you arent a one armed brit.

    Standing poses are also excellent and will get the flexibilty and strength back in your legs without being hard on the arms….
