Thinking of The Positives

7 Comments

Oh you poor thing. I do hope it heals quickly for you. My husband spent well over a year unable to walk and it is a total nightmare. He’s only recently got back on his feet again and it must be such a relief. I’m so glad you’re seeing the positive side of it though. He did too, he saw a lot more of the children than he would have done at work. And at the end of the day, work will wait won’t it? You’ve had the courtesy to do it over the Christmas break. By the time everyone’s sober again in the new year you’ll be back as if it never happened. Please do get plenty of rest, enjoy Christmas for what it is and let everyone wait on you hand and foot. Get well soon.x

A year? Gosh. That sounds horrible. Six weeks is going to be enough to drive me a little stir crazy. I miss my independence!

I’m hoping I’ll have enough to keep me going, and like you said; I’m going to be seeing more of T! Can’t beat that really.

Ah, boo, I didn’t realise the healing would be SO LONG! I can absolutely empathise – I was pretty much housebound and useless for most of my pregnancy because of my crappy hip BUT I really appreciated getting a few quiet months to myself to read and… eh… read some more; the main thing putting me off a second pregnancy is the thought of [most likely] going through the hip problems again but with a toddler to look after so I’m curious to hear how you get on!

Kate Everall says:

I know right? It’s the smallest of fractures and yet SIX WEEKS. I guess it could be a lot worse. I could be pregnant on top of that!

So far, the toddler is managing well. It there have been a few occasions where he wants to be carried up the stairs or have his hand taken and I’ve had to say no. It’s heartbreaking.

Oh you poor thing 🙁 so good you can see the positives you are doing better than i probably would. Yay for all the nice things you have planned though. Heal soon

Thank you. I’m trying to make the most of it. I moan I don’t have enough time to do them usually!

Things are so easily broken, I once slipped two disks in my back sneezing… I mean really!? Good Luck on the recovery x
