My little walk and rest for my WKD SIDE!


(really sorry about side view again) Need a dummies guide to this!!!!

Anyway - My Walk up Killer Mount Stairs!

Okay, I have oxygen on here, but this is the first time really out of my room since my last stint in ITU which I was itching to do. My room had become very boring. Since this (yesterday) I have been up the stairs and have lost all oxygen tubing which is the BEST FEELING IN THE WORLD! I have two drains in (which again not painful at all) I tell you, its wonders what pain relief can do for you!

After my hard work of doing the stairs I sat down in my room and rested - and I did this ->

Which was heaven. Painting them, (one of the first times I have used nail varnish as I really didnt have the energy or time to pamper myself with toe painting, and that really did my head in, not having time or energy before, as I used to have them painted nicely all the time. Anyway, I had a relax and whilst I was doing that, I noticed my drain - which okay is hard to miss, but something funny, so I recorded it for you all to see, turn away, or then again, dont press play :-)


Today, My Nan and her husband Roy came for visit, they got mega lost, and a 2 hour journey took them over 3 hours. Bless, but thankfully I got to see my nan, been dying to see her for ages now, but unfortunately Roy's Son Kevin passed away just under two weeks ago. He had MND.

Motor Neurone Disease (MND) is a progressive neurodegenerative disease that attacks the upper and lower motor neurones. Degeneration of the motor neurones leads to weakness and wasting of muscles, causing increasing loss of mobility in the limbs, and difficulties with speech, swallowing and breathing. He has been battling on with this disease for a long time, and he fought with every bit of courage and dignity I could have imagined, and wish that he be in peace now. I remember he had this computer thing, and when I went to see him, I of course got him to say out a swear word via the robot computer to which we giggled at.

And had lunch at the hare - I had RoAST Beef and Yorkshire PUD!! Ouh Argh, it was tasty!!!
