(Sadly I have reached my limit so can not upload any new pictures, these are recycled)
I slept alright last night despite waking frequently throughout the entire night, glad that I got back to sleep each time.
Seemed to also have strange dreams, every time I slept again which was a huge bonus, wished that I could recall my dreams, sadly I cannot.
Know that I was dreaming as I can recall tiny snippets of several dreams, finally pain overrode all else and I could no longer escape back into sleep.
Tried hard tensing and relaxing what I can, the only problem with doing that is that my arms fold tightly and cramp which is not helpful to drifting off.
Having alot off pain today which is more bearable now that I have had lots of THC and also have others things to do.
I am sitting now with my laptop after having done my arm exercises then Richie did my leg massage followed by leg exercises.
After that I took my baclofen and was ready to start the day, already it is hot and sticky, Richie is cleaning the apartment right now, this is accompanied by Marleen barking.
She has a huge distrust of the vacuum cleaner and sees it as her job to growl bark and often attacks the appliance but very half heartedly.
When Richie finishes he will get me hoisted out of bed and into the shower and then I sit in the shower chair to do my leg exercises with the Motomed.
Sitting in the shower chair is not comfortable as it does not give me the support the electric wheelchair gives me.
I can not sit for as long as in the wheelchair, really missing that as it does seem to help me sit better in bed afterwards.
Ton will be here at 11.30 tomorrow morning to look at my bottom and assess the extent of the damage to the skin.
Got mixed feelings about Ton coming around tomorrow, on the one hand glad for his knowledge, advice and support.
But on the other hand wish it were not necessary it has been very pleasant to not have my bottom inspected every week, have enjoyed not having any visits since 3 June from Ton.
Hope that this latest setback will soon be healed and I can sit again, we also discovered that I had a bladder infection which caused spasms.
Will try to stay optimistic which is tough but I shall do my best.
