    Well done on the bath! That must make you feel very good. Continue if you can to strengthen your upper arms as it really helps. 11 months on I still use a non-slip mat for getting out of the bath as it makes me feel a lot safer. No falling now! :beg:

    Oh glad to see you got a soak:bath: and also good to see your lovely sense of humor is in tact. I had to get my husband to rescue my 'drawers' off the floor several times after they fell down...before I found the telescopic back scratcher that acted as my undy grabbers.:blush:

    @Fairydell, oh a bath, I can still only dream of the day I can take one of them. I'm sure it felt fantastic! Thank goodness for understanding hubbies they sure do come to the rescue when we need them!

    @Elf1 It was utter bliss.. A little squirt of Badedas gave me bubbles up to the armpits and I thoroughly enjoyed a lovely long soak. :bath:…. everything is all buffed and defluffed and I feel like a human being again

    I ordered some a couple of weeks ago from The US Amazon when I saw the UK ladies discussing it. It shipped from the UK and came pretty quickly. It does smell heavenly. I haven’t had a bath yet but I’m planning on one before my second surgery.

    Now that bath sounds heavenly @Fairydell ... the badedas is just gorgeous...
    Had to laugh (sorry) at your hubby rescuing you from the loo ... my daughters loo seat is very low... I still struggle getting up!
    Your posts are sounding much more optimistic & I couldn’t be more pleased for you...

    Lots of love & hugs.. Chrissie xxx

    Woo hoo, hippy buddies…. I can walk up and down my sitting room and around the house without crutches... so long as my leg isn't tired. This feels like a huge jump forward and even though the nerve is still damaged at least my leg muscles are strong enough to hold me up. I can't come downstairs without a crutch yet but it will happen... eventually.. :happydance::happydance::egypdance:

    Stupendous News!!!!!! :happydance::dancy::happydance:

    I am ever so glad to hear it...so now you can at least slowly build up some strength and stamina and give your poor self a break from those crutches.:yes!:

    Please do be mindful until you get it worked out, my friend. Remember, No Falling Down and Going Boom!:no-fin:
