It's hard to believe that BH ( Beloved Husband) has been home from hospital for 2 weeks now and is doing so very well. Regaining strength slowly but steadily. He has even been taking a turn round the garden because we have had such lovely Spring weather.
He wasn't sleeping at all well because of the discomfort and pain of trying to get from lying to sitting and vice versa.
On the very day we had a visit from someone re the possibility of obtaining a grant towards the purchase of an adjustable bed,( we couldn't even begin to afford to buy one) BH's colleague from work visited. He said his disabled friend had been given a new adjustable bed but didn't find it fitted her needs. She had heard about BH and wanted to give the bed to him! Her son came that very night. Dismantled our other bed and installed the adjustable one. Since then BH has had really good sleeps and not been awake at 5.00a.m. through discomfort.
A week today BH has to return to hospital for a couple of days while everything is checked out. Then he will hopefully be out of the woods and onto the flat. I cannot tell you how much it means to me to know that he is sleeping so much better and in comfort not pain.
(The Practice Nurse tells me I may
have shingles but that it definitely will not cause any risk to BH. It's not full blown so hopefully will return from whence it came.)
Hope you don't mind reading all this . It's just that I feel like I'm walking out of clouds into wonderful sunshine and wanted to share the joy.
