It was a huge relief that my eyes were ok again yesterday, it really worried me tremendously.
The only way I could vaguely see my e-mails was to enlarge everything to 18 and then could just decipher my mails.
Had planned to go out yesterday afternoon, after my 10.00 appointment was finished and we had eaten and drank cups of tea, really had wanted to try out being steered by Richie.
We did not get any further than the front room as we were both extremely exhausted after the operation the day before and the visits to the University Animal Clinic.
I am recovering very well from the operation; the wound is very small and healing well.
Luckily I have had no pain and am extremely glad it is all over now, what a relief that it is done now,
Was impressed yesterday that the OLVG Hospital called to see how I was doing and to check that all was going well with my recovery.
Got the extra steering on back of the wheelchair and getting a new steering shortly for me to steer when I can using both of my hands.
It was a good appointment yesterday morning, I will get the new steering to try out for a short time and if it works for me will get that installed.
If it does not work well for me then I will get other systems to try out, so feel reassured that action will be taken when it is needed.
Spike is doing much better; he is cheerful and taking part again which has cheered up Marleen, who obviously missed their interactions.
Spike is moving around better, he has started trotting around a lot more indoors and even running in the park.
His wheelchair will be here tomorrow, we are both looking forward to Spike's wheelchair coming and seeing him run again with it.
I am taking it very easy today, slept right through to 11.30 this morning, obviously needed to catch up with my sleep.
Last night I fell asleep instantly as soon as Richie had turned the light off, think that today the last traces of the anaesthetic has worn off.
Looking forward to many good moments to come.
