Sadly the big furry one sashayed into the bedroom this morning, swishing his amazing tail and making lots of noise. When I flipped the lamp on, it was to see he'd laid a beautiful but very dead blue tit by his Daddy's bedside. He was immensely pleased with himself. We were really disappointed. Not with the quality of the gift but the fact it would have been much nicer left to visit the garden in peace. Still. Guess it's the thought that counts, eh?
Pleased to say Lovable nut has had a much more c9mfortable day today and the ankle swelling is receding. The ice and elevation is brilliant. He's been hobbling round the house today without his crutches. I've warned him against overdoing it as I think hes overdoing it but he's very determined.
@Lovablenut Don't worry - that new knee will quickly tell hubby if he has gone too far. Sometimes it's one step forward, two steps back. The brain says go and the body just isn't ready. Very early days!
Agreed. First physio appt today. She was lovely - of the "slowly slowly wins the race" variety. Was amazed at the minimal scarring (we were too) and has given us some really helpful demos for exercises, pointing out where OH was making this harder for himself.
