At last!!

On Thursday 10th March I went into hospital at 7:00am! At 12MD I went to theatre and had this pesky arm operated on. It was successful, I can move my hand and fingers so I am on the way to being able to use both arms sometime in a few months time. It has been eleven months since I broke it.
It is very painful and the right side of my chest is very tender but it will all be worth it. I was only in hospital two days and it was ok. Some very dedicated nurses with a lot of patience. There were some moments which I was dreading, eg.  going to the loo. I had to use a commode which was ok but I needed help, how do you wipe yourself after a wee when one arm is in brace and the other connected to drip, so I had my 'tuttsie' dried by a nurse. I haven't ever had that before!! Home now with my lovely DH looking after me. I won't be going out for a week or two, I need to take things gently for a while.
But I'm ok I survived the op.  A big thank you to the surgeon, Mr Ravi Ray who worked with a Nurse that he had worked with for several years helping, as the junior Drs were on strike. I am very grateful to him and of course to all my Christian friends who have prayed constantly for me, thank you to everyone else as well.
I am  very blessed with amazing friends..
