Stuck at the Hospital

Another session of physio with Judith (many thanks!!!) – and another step forward in my recovery.

Weekly hospital visits and daily prescribed exercises are slowly getting me better. I’ve started taking evening physio as I was hoping to be back at work, so didn’t want my hospital visits taking up the morning.

I’m feeling better in general, but the sitting and driving problem persists. The other day I took a 15 minute drive, and it was not great. Apart from it being very uncomfortable and painful afterwards, it also went against the rule of thumb that says: “if feel that you cannot carry out an emergency stop, you should not be driving.” I can say an emergency stop is one of the furthest things from the top of my to-do list right now.

Still, as things ease up I hope my boss will let Chris drive me to and from work, because that’s the only way I can see it happening over the next few weeks.

I really need the money, but I don’t want to screw my back up in a permanent way. As I get better, I shall do all I can to make sure this never happens again.

Meanwhile, here I am, near horizontal in my seat as Chris tries to get us out of a jammed hospital car park during rush hour. So far we have moved 5 car lengths in 30 minutes… I will need to get out and stretch my legs before we even clear the hospital grounds at this rate.
