Still Can't Believe It.
Gareth with his Homegrown Onions and Photos From Wales.
Slept well last night and have taken it very easy today, still rather overwhelmed by the news yesterday that the pressure sore is healed up.
Almost still can't believe it so have been telling myself again and again that yes it is true, it has healed up.
Yippee it is healed!
Nearly 14 months later, seems unreal now but know only too well that is has been more than real.
So glad that I did not feel the full extent of the pain, Richie has told me that the wound was really horrible.
He said he had never seen anything so wide and so deep, so happy now that I did not want to see the photos.
It was bad enough having to stay in bed 24/7 and not be able to sit up even in bed on the air pressure mattress.
Feeling the full pain would have made it totally unbearable.
As it is it has been extremely difficult, Richie has looked after me very well, which made it easier for me to cope.
Glad it is coming to an end, but sad when I heard that the paperwork has not been sent to the Amsterdam City Council yet.
It is three weeks since the modelling session and we had really hoped that this week we would hear that the Summit could make the adaptations.
Have no idea when we will hear now, still hoping that it happens before the end of the month.
Whether I will be able to go the gig at the Melkweg is for now a huge question mark, as I need to start sitting slowly.
To begin with I can sit for an hour at a time and then a week later for another hour, so if I do not have the adapted chair a week before the end of the month at least then I can forget the gig.
I need at the very least three weeks to build up my sitting capacities so that I can be able to sit through the concert.
Shall do my very, very best to keep calm and try to get through these last weeks.
The friendship and support of all my friends has helped me to live through this extremely trying time.
Thanks to everyone who has supported me.
