An Evening In The Front Room.


Rene Magritte.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ren%C3%A9_Magritte

Richie got me out of bed at 11.30 this morning and showered me using the delightful rose shower gel from Weleda.

He put me back in bed at 13.00 which gave him 30 minutes to sort himself out before setting off for his dentist appointment.

Richie got back from his appointment which went well, after giving me my drink and some food he took the dogs to the park.

Not long after they left I started to need urgent help.

I am waiting for him to get back from the park with the dogs and rearrange me in bed, hope he comes real soon.

As I am leaning very badly to the right which is hurting my neck and making it extremely difficult for me to type.

Hope Richie is here real soon as it is getting very unpleasant right now very painful and I can do nothing about it.

Anything I can do just seems to make my position even worse and not better at all, far from it.

Richie just got back and laid me down and rearranged me gently pulling my spine straight and now I am sitting better again.

Sadly it affected my right hand which I can not use right now, probably the stress and tension of trying to stop myself toppling over.

Look forward to sitting in my wheelchair in the front room as soon as the dogs have their dinner.

Lovely spending the evening there with Richie and the dogs.

Hi Herrad,

Glad you were able to manage a bit while he was out with the dogs, that must be frightening and unnerving.

I hope you have a wonderful evening with Richie and the good dogs.

HUGS

Hi Herrad,
Glad Richie got back before you toppled over. Sorry that the strain left your hand immobile again. I must be scary when such simple things go wrong with disastrous effects. Wonderful you got to sit up in the living room with Richie and the dogs.

Sorry it's been so rainy for you. Maybe you'll get a late Summer.

Hey Herrad! First of all, that picture is super cool! Nice choice. <3 I'm also glad that Richie was able to get home in a timely fashion and was able to give you some relief. Hope everything else is going all right for you! Have a lovely evening! <3 *Hugs*

Glad the day was salvaged by hanging out with your family in the living room. Sorry you're not getting more summer. I'm visiting my parents in Colorado now and we're having a wild thunder storm -- the house is literally shaking. But Jake, the cat, and I are curled up on the bed.

Nice to hear you you're getting more upright time.

Take care, Donna

Glad you were saved in time! Yesterday it was 56 degrees and today it's 83. Can't seem to make up it's mind!

I wish summer would stay awhile since it's not too long until winter comes.

Hi Stephany,
I was very happy to see him as it was just getting very unpleasant but luckily it didn't.

Hi Webster,
It was great Richie got back when he did.
Sitting in the other room was and is very good.
Think instead of a late summer we are having an early autumn.

Hi Rei,
Lovely to see your comment, glad you liked the picture.
Was a big relief to see Richie who helped me right away.
Hugs.

Hi Donna,
It is so good sitting again.
The thunderstorm sounds will goo to hear you and Jake were ok.

Hi Sherry,
It has been raining since the weekend and all day also much cooler.

Thanks you five dear friends for coming by, it is very good to see your comments.
Gives me such a boost.
Love,
Herrad

What a strange picture. I tried to imagine what it must be like not to be able to right yourself, but your attitude is so good another person can only admire and hope that when such a state comes upon them they will be as courageous.
