Poppy - The Road to Recovery!

Hi Poppy,
How are you today? Hope you had a good night's sleep, or something close to that at least.

I guess you'll have a busy week, with the checks & treatments & visits you'll be having - try to stay relaxed, do your best to listen & understand but don't worry if you need things explaining a couple of times, anyone would in your current situation.

That book of yours will be very useful, perhaps the medical team could help by writing things in it for you??

Please keep in touch, I know there's a lot of people out here thinking of you & rooting for you,
Love
Sx
Sandy

Hi Poppy, it's so good to hear from you again!
It sounds like you've been thro such a nightmare, you poor girl - no-one deserves that experience, the falls & confusion & everything - but it's great news that you're home, such a relief to me and the many people who are reading this thread - have you seen how many viewings our posts are getting?!??! There's loads of people rooting for you, I've certainly thought of you a lot whilst you've been away from the forum, hoping that you were OK.
Me and my hubby have got a couple of hours child-free this afternoon, so we're off out - not far, only to a couple of shops - but it's a mega outing for me, I've even put some mascara on & my fave necklace (not fancy, inherited from my Nana, with a photo of her & Grandad in it, always makes me feel close to her when I wear it).
Anyway, take care & keep strong my friend, you're doing so well despite the awful things you're going through, you're amazing.
Love & hugs
Sxx
Sandy

Oh dear, sorry for being dozy :oops: - I got myself over-excited, imagining you were home so quickly!!
I'm sorry you're still in hosp, that's rough - but it's obviously the right place for you, until everything is sorted out properly & you can come home. I hope you're feeling OK all things considered, & have got something to read or watch or listen to, it's good that you've got internet access there. Sounds like you're the youngest on your ward - are you on a general ward there?
Still sending you love & hugs, wherever you are!

D'oh. the last thing you need! Glad they found them in the end ;)
Can't believe there's 2 of us on line at the same time - it's the most in ages, I think!
