The background is a blue wall. There is a sunflower in a white vase on a cream table. The foreground is dark grey text that reads "Home from the Hospital". - Home at Last

I was finally discharged on Thursday. Having to stay in the hospital over Christmas wasn’t too bad, but I was ready to come home. I’m so glad I’m home at last – and in time for the New Year!

I was discharged just before lunch, as I had to see the consultant and physio first to check I was able to go home. In physio, I had to walk to the physio room and then up and down three stairs twice. I’m so proud of myself that I managed to do it.

My mobility improved significantly again on Thursday, so much that I was able to drive home! The physio said that I could drive as soon as I could change gear and emergency brake. I could do that well, even though I can’t lift my leg up when my foot is underneath my knee. I’ve been trying to squeeze a ball in my left hand for a couple of days. Hopefully, my grip will improve soon. A community physio is coming at some point in the New Year, but I’m hoping to be almost back to normal by then!

The photo is a Pinterest pin which is split into two sections. The background at the top of the pin is light blue with bold white writing that reads "Home at Last". The bottom of the pin is a photo of a green succulent in a grey pot against a cream/grey background. There is a small white circle in the middle of the pin with a blue medical ribbon in the middle.
