    Good for you. All of what used to be the norm are now major steps but very uplifting when accomplished. Now on to the next one.

    Once you've done it once, you will find it gets easier every day!  I'm pretty sure that to begin with it was my mind stopping it lifting . . once the physio lifted it a couple of times, suddenly it was possible!  Congratulations!

    Well done, it does come natually without bothering to do the leg lifts.  Your body tells you when its right.

      I had a better night last night, only got up once, had three sessions of sleeping and woke at 7.45am.   Don't know if its the stronger anti inflammatory ( naproxen)  which I took last thing before going to bed, had to have a piece of toast to take before the tablet.  It's only twice a day, morning and night, but it doesn't make me sleep during the day but I do feel better.  Forgot about crutches going up stairs, and even managed to do one step each foot on the stairs....but then shouted for the crutch and am going down stairs as per normal.   Legs elevated for most of the morning and again in a few moments time.  Kindle out ready to read or browse.
