Day 21

My stomach cramps kept me awake last night so all I’ve been doing today is dose. I haven’t eaten anything because I’ve been throwing up. I’ve been advised to sip water for now but they’ve also given me IV fluids because I’m dehydrated.

The doctor said he doesn’t know what’s causing the pain but he wants to wait and see what happens over night before ordering an xray. I think they’ll do one anyway but not until the morning.

Right now, the pain is fairly minimal but it’s been coming in waves so it’s difficult to tell if the painkillers are actuality doing anything.

So I didn’t end up using my stick at all today. I was walking a little slower and was quite tired by the time I got home, but not in any pain which I think means I’m getting stronger. I’ll still take my stick with me to work next week but try not to use it unless I feel I need to.

Had a great Father’s Day BBQ with my fiance and both sets of parents. I’ve been pretty tired today (probably from going back to work this week) but I had a good day anyway. Also, I got loads of cuddles with Button who is pointedly ignoring me in this picture.

First week back at work

So I went back to work on Wednesday this week, only for four hour shifts but I’m still really tired. Hopefully, I’ll be less tired as I do more; I’m increasing my hours each week until I’m back up to full-time again which I think is the best way to go. I need to get back into a routine of getting up early and being on my feet for most of the day.
