The last few days have been tough, mentally. I still need to be here but the tiniest things are really irritating me. I just want one day where noone comes in my room, but they have to so that's never going to happen.
Friday I managed a walk with the Physio half way down the corridor and back. Then again later on with Dad, I managed the same distance. My calves are aching from it but it's a good ache. The kind of ache that means your body's getting the message to work properly.
Yesterday I managed another little walk. I was in a lot of pain with my chest muscles. They stopped my regular paracetamol to check my temperatures weren't spiking without them knowing. I guess my body was used to it so once they took it away I was just in pain for hours. They gave me paracetamol, ibuprofen, diclofenac and they were all slowly taking the edge off. It wasn't until about 4pm that I felt ok and able to come off the NIV.
The doc said yesterday that my blood results are the best she's seen for me for a while. The infection markers are right down, so the antibiotics have really done the trick!
The diabetes nurse is insisting on a weird insulin regime for my feeds. I have to take a long acting and short acting one at the start of the feed, then they check my blood sugars 5 hours in. I worked out a way around it - start the feed at 7pm lol then blood sugar at 12am then I'll at least get a good 7 hours sleep :)
In the mean time, back home, Chris is studying and cleaning and cooking. Sighh...I miss home!!
