Today I passed the swallow test. Apricot yoghurt-absolutely delicious!

What I yearn for now is a gin and tonic with a lobster starter followed by a cold sausage washed down with coca cola. (No she hasn’t lost her marbles! – I think. Ed). However before this can happen I have been set lots of goals:

  • To be able to swallow solids,- the next step is pureed food and thickened fluids
  • To sit up,and regain arm strength so that I can turn over by myself
  • Feed myself
  • Transfer to a toilet on my own
  • Stand and walk a little

This will mean lots of physio but the really good news is that if I do as I am told, they say I should be out of rehab and home before Christmas. I can’t wait!
