I spent the first 2 days in the hospital. I would like to thank the nurses who helped me get through the initial days. Marla, Julie & Deb, thank you. It was good to finally come home though because I didn't get much sleep there. Not that I got much more the first night at home either. Sleeping horizontally in the bed was OK but getting out was a nightmare. We also missed a painkiller that resulted in a really bad chest and back pain. We learned from it and since then no 4 hour goes by without taking a pill. We also stacked about 6 pillows behind my back and I have been sleeping in a semi-sitting position since Tuesday night. Regardless I wake every morning with stiff body and it takes a good hour until I can walk more freely. Multiple time a day we need to replace the bandages on the road rash and put antibiotic cream over it to prevent infections. No fun. Shower is only allowed 2 times a week. I do brush my teeth frequently though :)
My right arm is useless and breathing or caughing cause some serious pain.
When am I going to heal? I have no clue. As for now it very much seems that I have only learned how to cope with the pain better.
Without Anna's daily care it would be a lot worse. She supports me in everything and probably life won't be enough to thank her for all her help.
