It’s been a while since I shared my experiences on this recovery journey since my accident earlier this year in January. Apologies for not being able to keep up the posting streak and I realize now that almost 2 months have passed since my last post here. However, I do hope you guys understand that the posts are mostly written and published after a few days and don’t necessarily coincide with the exact date the events took place. As much as I would like to post about the events and thoughts as and when it happens, between the surgeries and recoveries, it just isn’t possible.
The delay had to do with a few mixed turns of minor and major events like laptop issues, the surgeries, the reviews at the hospital, dealing with pain, and the mental breakdown from time to time. Trying to stay positive in the last few weeks has been hard too. It also had to do with being under quarantine for the past few days for Covid. Alhamdulillah ( Thanks to Allah ) I am now negative and out of quarantine. Well, the good thing is I have been able to bounce back each time with the help of my faith, family, and friends. I guess we all need to take a break from things, refresh and get back in the game, even if it seems this whole year is me taking a break from everything 😊
So I thought it might be good to give you all an idea of where things are at. As of today, I am back at home recovering from my 7th time going under the OT lights, ( a minor OT procedure ) and after my quarantine days. I had to say goodbyes to a few good people who had accompanied me on this journey, and I have had the privilege to meet more good people. 😊 There have been funny and heartfelt incidents. Lots of learning curves in dealing with life’s situations, and a lot of thoughts to ponder over.
At this point, I would like to thank, all my readers all over, from my family and friends to my teachers both academics and otherwise. My doctors, the good nurses, the non-medical staff ( T Block, Pre OT, Post OT, OT, SICU), and the Vac Personnel. All the wonderful compassionate OT assistant trainees, I have made friends with ( under sedation and off the OT table!! ) 😁and the technicians in the OT room. From the admin staff at the hospital to the ambulance drivers. Thank you all, for the help and support in this journey of mine. Thank you so much for reading my posts so far. 🙏
So looking forward to continuing posting, picking up from where I left off. In sha Allah. 😊
