Dreaming About Wheelchair Adventures To Come
Here it is nearly Saturday again; hope the weather will be nice enough for me to venture outside once again.
Looking forward to sitting again, but also feel quite apprehensive too about sitting upright, as every time it is slightly scary.
It feels like I might fall out of the wheelchair, although I know that will not happen it still feels like it could which is worrying.
Find that I can not sit up all in one go, have to either get Richie to go real slow or I take over as soon as Richie has wrestled me, very gently into the wheelchair.
Then I slowly elevate myself until I am sitting upright, at which point it feels better and I can cope with sitting.
Had not realised that sitting again could be quite such a white knuckle ride, hope that as I get to do it more often it will become with time just an ordinary experience.
Somehow though after spending all this time in bed, it’s been in total 21 months since the 21 August when Ton Peeks told me that I would be in bed for two to three weeks.
Two to three weeks bloody hell, if I had know then how long it would be, think that might have been too much even for me.
Would have tried my best to keep as optimistic as possible hope that I could have managed it.
Getting very excited now about sitting in my electric wheelchair but first I guess I will have to sleep first.
Getting very excited now hope I can sleep well and wake up refreshed and ready for my new wheelchair adventure.
Going to be zooming around in my dreams tonight for sure, looking forward to it.
