Today I am grateful for strong pain relief. The plate and bone graft I had done on Tuesday is a lot more painful than I expected. Panadol does not help at all so I am taking regular endone. It helps. I hope this is very short lived because it is yucky.
Today I am grateful that I did not have this operation 3 months ago. The orthopods who were looking after me at the RBH wanted me to have my arm plated two days after the accident. I do not think my recovery would have been so good if I had added the extra stress and pain onto my already broken body. I am grateful my Dad and David were advocates for me at that time and helped me to make the decision to wait.
Today I am grateful that a very dear friend emailed me last night. I had not heard from her in a while and was worried about her. It was a lovely heartfelt email and I send my love and prayers to her today.
Today I am grateful that I can shower myself, dry my own hair and get dressed on my own. Once again it is taking me longer to do because of the latest surgery but I have all day to do it!
Today I am grateful that we have enough money to be able to afford help at home. I have cleaners making my house sparkle today and gardeners making my garden beautiful.
