Should've gone to A&E but thinking it was only a sprain I did not, but after a restless night Hubbie made me go to hospital, where after an xray was told that I had broken my ankle, and now am in plaster and feeling useless.
Hade a barbecue planed for the 28th, I phone my brother and told him if he doesn't mind helping that they still should come up, on a time like this I needed people around me....they come up on Sat and what a great help they were! Rui and his wife Salvina Baked an orange drizzle cake from one of my recipe's and marinated the meats for next day....
On Sunday again they did most of the work bless them....then my sister arrives and she also gave a helping hand, when the rest of my family arrived everything was ready to go....Am so glad that I had not canceled..... its on situations like this when one needs the family around, I felt loved and cared for.
On Monday day 3 Hubby is looking after me, he makes me breakfast of fruit and natural yoghurt, then he helps me get washed and dressed. Coming down stairs was a very funny affair leg in front of me and bumming step by step a lot easier than going back up in the evening, what a struggle that was! I feel so weak no strength in my arms so that I could heave myself up but I did it with my husband behind me shouting instructions on how I should be doing it, Quite comical really.... in the end I shouted back that I was the one with the broken ankle and that I was the one feeling the pain. lol!!!!
Day 4 not much change from yesterday, still crippled!!!!! Had a shower lol what a performance!!!! With hubby's help I hop in the bath...did I say hop ahah that's a joke! What really happened was I seat in the bath with my good leg over and then hubby lifts my plastered leg over and that's when I hop to the window sill which is just above the bath, what a nightmarish event.....But I get washed without falling>>>>> of course hubby had to help.
Breakfast was coffee and a banana, going to see if I keep of carbohydrates while I am incapacitated, since am not doing my walks its only day four and am already finding it very hard not being able to go walking or gardening am missing my chats with my friend Paula and the countryside!!! Paula popped round with a bag full of books bless her at least I'll be excising my brain, if not my legs...Have I mention that my girls have been making sure that am ok! well Jennifer cooked our diner on Tuesday roast pork with caulycheese and green beans, on Wednesday fish pie...
.And on Thursday
