I hope you are having a peaceful night Sue and your brother will be ok in the morning, rested but still happy to snooze between medications so you can have some time to yourself as well.

Take care and look after yourself too as he will be in a mess without your ministrations.

I hope he will get on better now he is out of pain and home again

oh dear,

he keep's arguing with himself as he keep's feeling pain in the leg which is not there,
he say's I know my leg is not there but it is giving me some jip.
I told him he is on medication for the bit's that are there but I cannot help him with his phantom pain,hopefully this will settle in time finger's crossed.

we got my brother a small wheelchair for indoor's.
it goes round in circle's and it is controlled by a panel on the arm rest,it has given him some independence back while he is inside,as he live's in a bungalow he can go into every room quite easily.

a lot better than him trying to move about in a normal wheelchair.


GoldenGirl1 Report 6 Aug 2013 16:28

That's great anything that has him in control
can only be good and lessens his frustration
of having to depend on others.

I am glad he is home .....and driving ......

so good to hear he is getting some mobility xxxxx

occupational therapist came to see him,his bungalow is all in order and he does not need anything doing to it,
he is very happy as she has put in for a outside electric wheelchair for him.
he will be able to go to the shop with me or mum walking with him,

as we live in Norfolk my husband is making enquiries into renting a cruiser on the broad's for a day,he will love that as he cannot cope with lot's of people aroud him.

I am pleased your brother is doing so well and is able to get around his bungalow well.

Hope you can get him a ride on a cruiser, especially now the weather is nice in Norfolk.

Are you keeping well now Sue?

Dear Sue


Hope you are okay.

Its very good news that your brother is back home.

The Occupational Therapist sounds very efficent.

That will be so good of a small day trip can be arranged.

But do remember take very gentle care of yourself, Sue.

Lots of good wishes to you and your family <3
Elizabeth, EOS
