A quick relaxing break away before it’s all change and our youngest daughter paves her own path in life, when she starts university once we are home. So this week away is our last family holiday. So clinging onto the last second while we can.
So first aboard holiday with my hip replacement, I can honestly say I had envisioned that I would be skipping off into the sunset. And reality is, I’m still taking my walking stick, taking tramadol and ibuprofen, my splints and compression gloves. So there’s no rest or break away from health issues sadly.
I am armed with my sunflower lanyard for hidden disabilities, my first time ever using one for the airport.
Though with a splint on my hand and walking stick, I’m not sure it’s hidden!!
It helped with the security queue, though not mentioned I was ushered into a faster line, very professional. Once there though I was put into the x-ray machine is it? Then patted down, then with the wand all over, yes hip did bleep. I wore leggings so it would be easier to see that it’s my hip. They removed my hand splint, and put that through the machine, as well as my walking stick. Extremely thorough!!
Flight went ok, nothing to report, except I knew it would ache and it did, so plenty of fluids to help combat that, and moving the leg to prevent stiffness.
I will say I’m extremely disappointed that so many people will push in, shove and rush past me to get ahead. I was squeezed into a chair arm rest and this was the result.
The rush to get a seat on the bus was hilarious, and so obviously I’m slower,so I had to stand, complete with full death grip on pole and walking stick!!
But finally we arrived, middle of the night so it was a quick brew and water to drink then bed. Shattered.
But I’m determined to enjoy myself and kickback and forget my worries, if only for a week.
Catch you laters my lovelies.
