Where am I

I managed to slip over on 6-November-2015 and fracture the femoral head of my right hip. This blog is just to keep friends and relatives up-to-date with my recovery. It also will show where the NHS is good and where there is opportunity to improve. If you click the images tab (above) there are a few images of the break before and after the repair.

Update 10-June-2016 - sadly the femoral head has avascular necrosis and a total hip replacement will be carried out on 15-June-2016

I am home in Stoke Bruerne

Day 117 (70) to Day 124 (74)

It's the camera that's on the
slant not the bathroom!
Just a quick review of the week I think as things really are getting better with the occasional backward step. On Monday I checked the results of my blood test and was summoned to see the Doctor on Wednesday - something very complicated to do with kidney function (which I am taking seriously) and I now have another appointment for a 'starvation' blood and urine test next Wednesday - oh what fun.

The shower with the fold-down seat
Jim and Dave finished off the bathroom on Tuesday - it is great - I could dance in the shower but I am 100% sure that the underfloor heating isn't working as it should - time will tell.

Back to my private physio (Liz) on Friday - she says my thighs are back to almost the same size on each leg - I find it quite amazing how quickly one's muscles degenerate when not being used - there's a lesson there as we get older to keep going.

Still bitterly cold - well below March averages - let's hope it gets a bit warmer soon.
