Happy birthday to me
Today is my 53rd birthday and I plan to celebrate the event by getting the eldest lad and his uncle to help me hobble downstairs and then stuff me into the car. The plan is to go off to a restaurant for coffee and cakes. . .
My health is improving very, very slowly. The muscles in my legs have recovered enough to carry my weight, but my feet are still out of shape. The right foot is better than the left, and I can put it down flat with all my weight on it, but the left foot is taking its time to recover. I can sort of use the ball of that foot to carry some weight, and can then hobble a bit with help.
I will post an update when we get back - wish me luck.
Well, getting me downstairs turned out to be surprisingly easy as the lad is stronger than I realised. He left the restaurant to go off with some miniskirt so getting upstairs was a laugh and a half, but the wife and her uncle managed it.
All in all today was a good day!
