I have been home since last Thursday now and it has been wonderful. I had a lovely Christmas, with a huge thank you to Dave for cooking almost the entire Christmas dinner single handedly, and the boxing day meal for Pete and Katie too.
The bedroom decoration is beautiful and a testament to the amount of work put in by the team of builders and decorators who worked so hard to get it done in time for my return. I've still got my bit to do in terms of returning things to cupboards, but I can only seem to manage one box a day.
I went back to the hospital today to check nothing has gone haywire since I've been fending for myself and I'm pleased to report that everything is OK and the consultant is very happy with my progress. Next appointment is next Tuesday, when the world returns to work so the drive will be a little less easy I suspect. I am feeling great, with the only giveaway about my situation being a chronic lack of energy (and a chronic lack of hair of course). I managed to walk to the end of the road and back yesterday, and look forward to more such ambulations.
Love to Michelle and Chris who have both gone down with flu in turn. I hope you are both feeling better soon.
Enjoy your New Year celebrations everyone, we're in for a very quiet one ourselves.
