We went camping in Wiltshire for the last few days and i LOVED IT, it was just what the doctor ordered, simple back to basic’s living and forgetting our troubles. We went to a lovely site that is super friendly and it encourages young and old alike to help feed the animals there, like the piglings and Big pig Molly, a few lambs (that can be bottle fed by kids) feed the baby Chicks and Hens and feed and pet the Rabbots too!! A real freedom site where kids can be left to play without worrying about them straying far (they always stay near the bunnies, as they’ve had babies) and cars. So it was relaxing even though we had a little rain. Every night we had a real camp fire which is rarely allowed these days, and toasted our marshmallows, it was pure heaven!!
Who cares my hip played up as usual, somehow it didn’t matter? I stayed topped up on pain killers and even though it was slightly uncomfortable sleeping it was so worth it, so i can’t wait to plan the next trip there.
Still going to try and change my appointment date as i can’t wait that long!! The pain is vile and i’d be so out of my 18 week treatment plan, why should i be forced to wait another 3 months in pain?? I wanted to try and ask for a phone consultation but i’m not having luck at the moment, nor am i for getting a cancellation appointment. But i will keep trying as i’m desperate to see him sooner if i’m being honest. I want my life to move on and go onto the next level, i’ve bben on this level for the last 3 1/2 years!
As we’ve all been seriously down and frustrated with my immobility that we’ve booked a holiday to get away for week, rest relax and forget our troubles!! Well works out that i’d be on holiday when the consultant appointment is, so i’ve had to cancel with the notion of i bet i’ll have to wait even longer until i get to see him now, possibly an extra month so sometime in July. No make it 2 months extra!! I’m gutted, but at the same time i need to get away and forget home life if only for a week. So on the positive side if i see him in August i’ll probably have surgery come September then and i’d be recovering over Autumn and Winter when the weather is rubbish anyway and i wont want to go out! So i’m desparately clinging onto that as my silver lining, otherwise i’ll murder someone. I’m guessing the 18 week clock stops because i’ve had to reschedule one appointment, talk about punishment for trying to have a life.
My friends are doing well and both have been little troopers with physio, and coping with it all, i’m so proud of them. Huggles Rayray and Kate xx
Had a ct scan but i won’t know any more until i either ring them or wait for a letter to drop by. I was a bit gutted to be honest as i really wanted to see the consultant afterwards, and finally here his plan of action, instead of we could do this?, or maybe that? I need a plan in place, so i can fit everything else around dates and recovery and such like. The more i mentally prepare myself for this the better i feel, but i’m still disgusted that it is left to the sufferer to chase up mobility aids for around the home after surgery. And if you don’t claim any disability benefits your can’t get a blue badge. But i think we should qualify for a temporary one while consultants know we are suffering and waiting for surgery, and recovery period. Why should we walk far, when we blantly can’t? The royal orthopedic hospital in Birmingham has zero parking, so we have to park the car a MILE away, so your exhausted and sore before you’ve even got to the consultant!!!
My friend Rayray had her surgery on Monday and hopefully things have gone well, we don’t know yet as there is no internet connections at the hospital, but hopefully she know’s all the girls miss her off the forums, sending hugs and love her way. Love you Rayrayxxxxxxxxxxx
My girl Kate had her surgery yesterday, so i had thoughts of her for most of the day. And it’s lovely to hear it went well and i’ve seen a lovely smiley photo of her on her blog as well as the scar photo already!!! We have missed her so much on the forums, so it’s nice to see good news. Love you Kate xxxxxxx
