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 54 (6)

It doesn't seem possible but it will be one week tomorrow since I came home. Where does the time go to?  I feel I am not making progress as quickly as I would expect but people who are kind enough to visit do say that they see lots of improvement in my mobility - I do hope that's true.

I enjoyed a lovely day yesterday with my friend Emma (who works for Canal & River Trust) and her daughter Megan; one of the things I think is important in my (holistic) recovery is getting out and about and not looking at the same four walls all day. A lady called Jo is coming to see me tomorrow to talk about helping me keep the house in some semblance of order whilst I regain full mobility; the most trying thing for me at the moment are the stairs - I am sure I am going to have a crash sooner or later - I have had a couple of minor ones so far and I know that it is lack of concentration and trying to do things to quickly that is the underlying cause - so I'll need to concentrate more and go slowly I think.

Managed to go for a little walk this afternoon, another milestone however small the walk was.  I'll update this blog (still no better name for it) daily until 31-December and then perhaps just roll up the events of the week into one.
