Day 257 - Two more days to go - Required 706750, Achieved 724608

Physio appointment on tuesday...

I may be able to stand long enough to shave without getting a tremble in my leg, which when you're using straight razors, is certainly the way forwards...

But that's two days away...

If there's one thing I've learned this last week it's that when you're down this far, it's the small random kindnesses that get you through things, not the big things, but the little reminders that you have friends out there and that they take the time to say hi, even when you haven't spoken in some time, just to check in on you.

The only good thing that's come out of all this pain so far is the amount of writing I've got done, when you can't stand up for more than two minutes and you can't sit down straight, so the only option you've got for no pain is laid back with a bag of peas on your back (Thanks Mum) and a keyboard on your lap, you get a lot of writing done...

However, it has to be said, I'd rather have the use of my legs and sleeping ability than writing more at this point...

Still, enough of such heresy
