Suddenly, my week just got a whole lot busier.
I’ve found out that I have a job interview on Thursday that I’m going to have to take two trains to get to and two trains to get home again. This doesn’t really bother me anymore. I book my assistance beforehand, as advised and things usually go pretty smoothly.
This time, I’m a bit nervous though because I’ll be travelling alone with my pots on. I can walk in them in the same way that I usually would, I just don’t know what the weather will do. If it’s bad, I could just don a pair of waterproof trousers to help them stay dry, but that won’t look very smart. I let my family draw all over the casts too, so I’ll have to make sure they are covered up too.
I’ve already decided that I’ll just get a taxi from the station to where I need to be so that I don’t have the added stress of trying to battle with bus routes I don’t know. Usually, I would check them out anyway so that I would know what they were like for future reference, but I think I’ll just play it safe and limit the amount of stress just this once. After what happened last time, I’ll be sure to specify exactly which station I want to be dropped off at on my way back. I’ve learned my lesson now. Thankfully, I didn’t have to learn it the hard way as such.
Then, on Friday, it’s back to the hospital I go for the next phase of my serial casting treatment. That’s when they take off the pots that I have on now so that they can check on the progress that the treatment is making. I’ll also be getting cast for some new splints: a pair of ankle AFO splints and a pair of night time spring splints. Once that’s been done, I’ll be heading straight back to the plaster room to get put into another round of casts. I’m not sure how long they will stay on or if they will be the last pair or not.
I shall update you all when I know anything.
