    ^Bahaha, I wish! Sadly just a fish. He's really cute though! I named him Pistachio.

    The room is nice and spacey. It's big enough for two+ patients, but they have assured me that I've got it all to myself (:

    I appreciate all the good vibes!
    I think that keeping a good attitude is half the battle. (:

    Nurses are just the best! Doctors may pin all your broken bits together but on a day to day basis nurses will make you better. Everyone should be nice to nurses, apart from the daughter of an unwed lady dog who "looked after me" in the high dependency unit, I would cheerfully go back and tell her to rethink her career choices.

    A cheerful and positive attitude is very important, keep it up, makes everyones life better. Glad that they have you in therapy I know it's tough but so worth it.

    It is very intensive. And for a while they couldn't quite figure out the dosing for my pain meds, which made it extra difficult xD But we've got it down now, I think!

    Let's hope Pistachio is the fish in the bowl and not the troublemaker on the right :

    NO! I just read your post! Holy cow, what a disaster. And yet, you sound so ... well, maybe not cheerful, but definitely strong and optimistic. Sending good thoughts your way.

    If time hangs heavy on your hands and you need a good book, try "Sound of a Wild Snail Eating". It is a tiny biography of a woman suddenly and unexpectedly bedridden, and her companion, a snail. You could read it aloud to Pistachio; he might enjoy it.

    I actually am on the cheerful side: I feel incredibly lucky to be alive. So... yeah.

    I had my first group therapy today. That was quite an eye opener as well. It was a group of all ladies, and I was the younger in the group by at least 40 years. We did work with our arms... And it was awesome. A walk in the park compared to what I usually have to suffer through during my Physical Therapies. So, even though I was surrounded by elderly women on their death bed (I felt a little guilty, as it were...) it was a nice, and well deserved break.

    I'm glad to hear that your therapy is going well! I just wanted to jump in and wish you a speedy recovery, hope all continues to go smoothly.

    ...And "just a fish"?! Psssh fish are awesome! (I have a mild addiction to Bettas haha)

    Best of luck to you

    Keep your spirits up, & sounds like your room, for now is as nice as can be, you have been quite lucky-a lot of people would not have survived that. I hope the pain is not too bad, and hopefully your stay will be shorter than expected. Yes, might be a good time to re-think the amount of alcohol-I like it all-beer, wine, etc, but 1 or 2 is plenty, then it's time for water or soda or something safer.

    Good luck to you!
