Recently, I somehow hit my head on something very hard and split my head open, I became disoriented and really don’t remember what happened to me or how I did it.
The next 30 or so minutes are a complete blur and it wasn’t until I came around in hospital was I made aware of what happened. I was airlifted to Perth, because of the head trauma, where I went through a barrage of tests to find out what was wrong with me. It turned out I gave myself a bleed to my brain and as soon as I knew I was okay, I started nagging the Drs in the hospital for a transfer to Northam.
After a week, it was granted to my relief and to Northam I went. I was added to the Sub-Acute area, this is where my recovery commenced. The entire team, from the domestics, nurses, Drs and staff, went above far and beyond to rehabilitate my sorry backside. I was put to work almost immediately with Physio, Occupational therapy etc, working out goals for me to work through.
After almost 6 weeks, I was finally allowed to come home and I can’t help but send a call out today and say a huge thank you for everyone associated my rehab. All sessions are done professionally and just a little bit of fun added in.
In all seriousness, I was a basket case and with these guys, I’d still be lying flat on my back. So thank you so much, you got me up and walking and thinking for myself and add a little stubbornness from me.
PS: Not complaining but when cooking meals, in my opinion, a few herbs and spices in your meals will go a long way to making some of them more palatable. 😁😁😁❤️
