I’m flippin’ tired this evening. Since my last progress update, I have accomplished a lot, when it comes to my rehabilitation.

I believe that I told of how pleased I was, having managed to transfer from the bed, to the nearby wheelchair and back again.

Today was my busiest day yet, and I am proud to report that I can now…

  • Walk approximately ten feet, from bedroom to landing, and sit on a parked wheelchair.
  • Transfer from wheelchair to stair lift, at the top of the stairs.
  • Transfer from stair lift to wheelchair, at the bottom of the stairs.
  • Move from sofa, walk alongside coffee table and onto wheelchair – my pre-accident means of transferring.

I still find myself getting a little out of puff while performing these moves. It also isn’t uncommon for my back and arms to ache a few hours later.

This will be because I have spent the majority of the past four months in bed. I am very much deconditioned. Luckily, everything is getting easier – presumably, as my fitness improves.

I can also take assurances from a recent visit to hospital, where I was given a clean bill of health.

Returning to work is still a while off – in that it won’t be within the next fortnight! – but I can finally see a slight glimmer of light at the end of the long, dark tunnel I found myself in.

  • About Me

    So you stumbled across my blog. No doubt after searching for something bizarre on Google. Before you hit that 'Back Button', why not stay and have a read for a few minutes?

    If you are after a website which gives advice on how to hack an iPhone X, download the latest Steven Seagal movie, or view nudy ladies, you've come to the wrong place and may now press 'Back'.

    However, if you would like a lifestyle blog, written by a 30-something chap, living in Bath (England), feast your eyes on this.

    You won't discover how to copy PlayStation 4 games. What you will find is a blog, covering life in the West Country, the highs and lows of supporting two unsuccessful football teams, while sharing a house with a wife and rabbit.

    All written by a man, somewhere on the sanity-scale between normal and eccentric.
