Positive Thinking

Well, a dull day today sitting on drip and having all input/output measured. Was hopeful of gettting out this evening but Consultant is keen to be sure my fluid balance is stabilised; given the grief I have had over the last 2 weeks I'm not going to argue.

Challenge now is mainly a mental one; to balance the need not to overdo it with the risk of becoming a sloth. This evening I did my walk to the bench + round the tree. It should really be as easy as that. Do a little more each day, celebrate the little victories, just enjoy the fresh air and freedom ... and fitness will come.

Plan is to get out now tomorrow evening -- I find myself avoiding the use of the term 'discharge' for some reason.

    Blimey! You didn't look that ill when I saw you at Chris's party! I was on LinkedIn and saw this so clicked through.

    I know this might seem an odd thing to say but I have really enjoyed reading this. I like your level-headed style and willingness to share such a difficult experience. And I must admit that I find it all very interesting.

    It's clearly early days but I wish you a speedy recovery and hope that this is the long term solution that you need.

    I need a new pair of 3/4 lycra shorts so I better buy Endura as a tribute!

    Get well
