I was in the hospital a total of 11 days and came home 2 days ago. It’s been the most scariest time of my life and never want to go through it again.
Here is an update from my last post Hospital bound
I had to undergo an MRI scan of the brain and then it was decided to do a spinal one too. Luckily it showed nothing untoward. They said your brain and spine is perfect…however it didn’t explain why my both my legs were paralysed for nearly 5 days.
Once my legs started moving again I didn’t know that I couldn’t just hop down off my hospital bed and walk about like I did before. I have to learn to walk all over again. I’ve had physio in the Hospital whilst I was a patient there. The only way I can explain is that my legs and feet feel like they don’t belong to me.
I need support of a walking stick to get me around the house and it’s exhausting just going from one room to the next. I always thought that it was older people who needed a stick to get about. However , really couldn’t do without it at the moment.
I only use the stairs to come downstairs in the morning and up to bed at night it is just too much for me at the moment. It’s a good job I have good upper body strength or else I’d be in a right state. My Mum has to watch me go up and down incase I take a tumble.
Something so simple as walking can be taken away from you just like that and I’m fortunate that I am starting to walk again some people never will. So my message is Don’t take things for granted. Things are sent to try us all.
Thanks for stopping by
Until next time
