All Set to Sit Again.
Frogs and Lizards.
Slept pretty well last night, shame that I tend to wake up early and then can not get back off to sleep again.
And today was no exception, woke up when I coughed which triggered as always a big spasm.
I was now officially awake although did try to pretend I was still asleep, did not work, so lay here moaning quietly.
I was very happy when Richie got up and closed the window and put the heating on briefly to warm up the apartment.
As soon as it was warm I did my arm exercises and Richie did the leg exercises and massage.
Then a delicious fruit smoothie and later on oatcakes and Wenselydale cheese with Branston pickle and a couple of spicy pickled onions.
In between my new red winter jacket arrived, it has zips up the arms which make it easier to put on.
Also got a warm black protective bag (like a sleeping bag with zips) for my legs and up to my hips, nothing under my bottom which makes it easy to put on in the chair so no extra transfers with the hoist.
Looking forward to testing them out this Thursday when my adaptation will be fitted onto my electric wheelchair.
I am all set to go out and enjoy myself, first have to take it easy and slowly build up the length of time that I can sit.
But soon I will be out and about in my new red jacket all snug with my legs well protected.
Feels good to me.
