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.
