Thanks so much for your supportive comments on my last post. I've been having a bit of an internal battle...whilst I am determined to change things in the new year, I do kind of feel a bit selfish. I've run a few of my plans past husband and best friend...I get the impression they're a bit surprised. Certainly husband seems a bit disgruntled about one or two things, although he's not tried to dissuade me. I won't let it put me off though, I think it will benefit us both in the future if I'm happier about things.
Now that I know things are going to change in the new year, I'm feeling a bit happier and more positive. I can't make any real changes before then....partly due to Covid restrictions, husband's incapacity, and just the time of year - some of my plans depend on decent weather. But I can at least make plans.
Yesterday and today husband actually took Betty out, for short walks only (on my recommendation), he's much more stable on his feet now and in a lot less pain. It's the first time he's left the house in 3 1/2 weeks, other than a hospital appointment, he managed pretty well, hopefully he'll be able to go a bit further in due course. It'll make my life a bit easier as well, and benefit him....he's been spending too much time lying on the sofa, usually asleep, he needs to start getting his life going again.
I'm going for my hip x-ray tomorrow, I'll be interested to see exactly how bad my hip is. If I do need a hip replacement, I can't see it being anytime soon, it's not a priority operation (unless I fall over and break it, not something I plan on doing!). But it might open the way towards more treatment, possibly acupuncture or pain relief injections? I'd consider anything, I'm really not happy about taking codeine every day.
Sorry I've not commented much on your blogs recently, no excuse other than not being on the internet much, had so much to do. I will endeavour to catch up!
