29th March 2012
It must be a good sign that I haven’t kept up with journal entries. I been ’cast-less’ since the 9th March which is a pleasure. Going out with the dogs is a pleasure now rather than a military operation of getting the wheelchair out of the bungalow, crutches left indoors and getting the dogs leads over the handles. Chyna was usually okay but Bruno never learned the knack of walking in a straight line. It’s much easier going shopping as well as I felt like a spare part in the wheelchair.
Yesterday I had my first physiotherapy session which was a waste of time. I could have been told what to do when I had the cast removed.
The past two weekends have been tiring as we have had friends’ three sons overnight. They are aged two, five and eight but have been easily entertained. They like playing in the back garden and last Saturday we took them to The Locomotion which is a train museum. The eldest one has been before but he still enjoyed going again.
I have had contact with my sister which is something short of a miracle. She has had an operation to remove her gall bladder and has problems with one of her eyes which has an ulcer. I am worried about my sister though plus she is missing our Mum. It doesn’t surprise me as they were close but it is a worry that she is finding it difficult coping with our Mum’s death. It will be the 1st anniversary this coming Sunday.
