Woke up to the sound of Richie coming back into the bedroom with the two dogs.
Thankfully Spike did not flap his ears so managed to drift back off to sleep again did keep drifting awake again but then drifted off to sleep again each time which was brilliant.
When I was fully awake really noticed the ms pains again, tried hard to not make too much noise moaning which is very difficult to do.
Despite painful arms did my arm exercises, once they were done Richie did his daily massage magic on my legs.
The massage really helps to push the pain away and let it take a backseat and once I have taken the baclofen tablets and have had some thc I can get on with the day.
The thc is excellent for helping me to relax, can instantly feel all my muscles feeling less stressed and strained as all the tension evaporates.
Richie had just got my laptop set up in front of me when the bell went and it was Ton, the excellent nurse from the RCA who has been supporting us since last August.
Both of us had forgotten he was due today for his now twice weekly visits, which was also ok as now he was suddenly here.
Preferred it to waiting around and then dreading his visist when there is nothing to dread, far from it.
I was quickly rolled onto my side and my leggings were pulled down so Ton could have a look and measure and take a photo.
He was very pleased with the good progress, the sore has become less deep as well as smaller in width.
Ton now felt able to say he thought that by the end of May I would be sitting in the wheelchair again.
This was exactly the news we were hoping for, Ton was really beaming as he complimented me on coping so well with being in bed since August.
Told him that it was only possible because of Richie's good care and his help and support as well as the love and support of friends.
Feeling very happy today at the good news since Ton left us we have both been so very relaxed and really enjoying the day.
Hope it is a good day for everyone.
