The one thing l have so missed is my bath the soak has always helped my pain riddled body.As l had completed the above l decided to try and get down into a bath, doing this was quite easy l put two flannels on either side of the bath and lowered myself down.After a lovely session of pampering the dread overwhelmed me how was l going to get out. Before op l would go onto my stomach hands on either side of bath and pull up onto my knees painful but it worked, well this was not going to work l did try but l had to roll bk. I now started to hyperventilate and panic,l called for hubby he was pleased to see l had managed to get in but then realised l was near to tears, l can't get out l cried. Hubby suggested right let's try this no good, then that no good, l was now really crying and so angry that because l so wanted a bath l had caused this.By now l was convinced the fire brigade would need to be called as l was not going to get out without help. My dear hubby although 75 has always done physical labour and only a few months ago was repairing our roof suggested l do as he asks and he would get me out.The bath water was let out and a big bath towel was put under me giving me grip on the bottom of the bath,l was told to clasp my hands around his neck and don't let go just allow him to do the rest.he somehow placed his hand across the bath and used his body as a hoist and started to lift me, with this l was able to push up with my old leg and help him till l was sitting on the side of the bath.PHEW what a nightmare, l promised him no more baths my poor hubby. Well at 65 you would think l would have some sense it seems where my body is concerned l am destined to learn the hard way.
