Back Home

L's operation went well and is now recovering at home.

For me and M it has been a difficult time seeing L in such pain and discomfort but,
almost everyone involved with L's care at the hospital were wonderful and tried to make her as comfortable as she could be.

Small adjustments have to now be made at home whilst L continues to recover, like sleeping and sitting positions using pillows, cusions and/or rolled up blankets. Also she's  learning how to adjust her movements with a rigid back.

The next six weeks will see L slowly recover week by week and then returning to school. At the moment that feels like a long way off in her recovery.

M is recovering well with his back whilst still wearing his back brace he's not using his crutches as much. A few more weeks before he's back at work though.

Thank you for all your messages on my last post I passed them on to L who also says thank you.

    1. I'm feeling it at the moment. But M is getting around more so I get him doing a few things to help.

  3. Oh I'm sorry I missed this post - I know it sounds easy to say but each day they both should feel a little bit better! L has been so brave and so have you Mum! Two patients to run around after - make sure you look after yourself too xx

    1. ThanKs Rachel. M is well on with his recovery and is waiting for Preston hospital to sort out a check up. It should have been at 8 weeks. L is very slowly improving but still requires lots of looking after. I'm now getting better sleep so able to cope with the days ok.
