Today I’ve managed to go to the loo myself, brush my teeth and eat my lunch totally unassisted. Such small steps but at least they are steps in the right direction.

The physio has been and we went through how to remove the sling and which exercises I need to do. I have to do them three times a day but wear the sling after getting dressed and after exercises. I think the hardest part will be trying to relax my shoulder as the taped in nerve block tube means that I’m trying to minimise the tape pulling on my neck by holding my shoulder up. Should be much easier when it’s removed – probably on Monday.
