and so the weeks have passed in a blur WITH LONGer SLEEP, LONGER TIMES TO DRESS, LONGER TIMES TRYING TO WASH, TO CLEAN TEETH,, LONGER TIMES CHEWING, TRYING TO EAT, TO DRINK. SORRY Didn’t MEAN TO WRITE THIS IN Capitals!
and in between I do my exercises to try and strengthen hand. julian bent me over piece of cooper pipe, flattened it for a weight to try and lift to strengthen fingers. the egg is actually a rubber egg and quite good as a weight when I grasp plastic cup- then move between coasters.
all time consuming but hopefully working. considering 3 wks ago I couldn’t grasp anything and now can move glass . but not very swiftly or coordinated.
other exercises are for balance- standing holding kitchen units. the illustrations are hysterical – I must photograph them..
also do face exercises to help with dropped mouth.
these exercises supposed to be performed three times daily to help for instance difficult with eating as i often bit left lip! I stick out my tounge. smile, grimace and all sorts of funny faces . also I want to stop the dropped mouth as looks awful when I smile.
so after hand physio, which this week involve turning over poker chips ( which the hospital supply) may come in handy one day. All these exercises I am knackered.
changing the subject and on a more poiitve note- as couldn’t walk far even with pusher- we decided instead of visiting josh on Saturday he could come here the weekend. seems nice idea as didn’t see much of him over terrible xmas with me being in hospital. so josh came back Friday we all had a curry- celebrated new yr !! not really- josh & I clinked glasses and I said happy new year.
but on sat we could do karaoke- and was relaxed, did exercises. then sunday he was dropped off. soon be half term.
sorry my photos are shocking but hard to hold camera and press with silly left hand!!
photos to send to Harvey and he sent one back….sunshine all the way
