So thought I had best pop in and give you all an update... Hee hee or you would be thinking I had disappeared again?!
Han and Kevin were cat sitting over the bank holiday at my parents as they went away for a break. So we planned to start with David Lloyd and the swimming pool today. Bet your. Thinking I have come up with some excuse?! Ha ha no!! We actually went! Han is going to try to take some photos tomorrow to show you all.
It was such an effort getting changed, I had an end goal....to make it to the water!! And I am pleased to say I did! Oh my! Let me tell you, it was AMAZING!! It was a little tricky getting in the water but once in oh, I bobbed about and the stress floated away from me. It was so relaxing, my lower back felt like there was nothing wrong with it! My knee hurt if I moved it any way but straight, but after feeling the owe a few times I stopped moving it in every direction! Han was with me and helped me move about until I was confident.... She was looking after Bob for me! My wheelchair if you don't know! Lol
It was the first bit of exercise I have done in such a long long time, moving my arms, my legs... Just felt so good. Well I guess it would after being trapped in one room and bed for so long. After the pool, oh, getting out took longer! I made it though! Han wheeled me around to the sauna! What a treat! We both sat chatting in the sauna! It was so nice, warm and lovely! The time passed so quickly, I did not want to over do it on my first visit so we headed out after about just over an hour... It was enough for now.
Hmmmm getting dried and dressed is an awful experience and left me out of breath, gasping for air with hardly any clothes on! Thankfully Han came to my rescue! It literally took half an hour to get dried and dressed!! Han wheeled me out to the foyer and we sat in the cafe for a while, I drank iced bottled water and reflected on our visit. Even sat chatting then I still felt calm and relaxed...we both are positive about the coming days. Although Han says. I may hit a low point when in pain, but she said she will help me through it as she wants me to enjoy the pool and water.
I am at home now, I am hurting! Well I knew I would be, but oh my!! Not sure I thought it would be this bad! But now I know the benefit of floating and relaxing in the water...I AM GOING!
I wanted to share with you all that I went and it was great! One day at a time is my new motto!
Thank you all for being so so lovely 😊
Until I next pop in...with photos! Lol
Keep smiling 😊😊😊
