The Inpatient Diaries: Day 20

Hey everyone, thought I would take a little break today from the usual Diaries format to let you know what happened at my CPA today. Sadly, the main thing is I probably won’t be able to get home for my birthday. This has really upset me but I’m trying to come to terms with it. I’m just going to have to postpone it and make that day extra special. At least I’ve not got exams! (I was supposed to have my psychology A-level).

Anyway, the official discharge date they’ve given me is June 22nd but I’m hoping if everything goes well it can be a bit sooner than that. Also, depending on COVID restrictions, fingers crossed I’ll get some leave before then and be able to spend some time at home, Usually by now they would be considering day patient (where you go to hospital 4 times a week but spend the rest at home and you sleep at home – this would be ideal for me at the moment) but again COVID has unfortunately meant that’s not a possibility.

So really, the outcome of today is just that I know I’ve got to keep going, day at a time, and keep praying restrictions loosen so I can finally have visitors and hopefully spend some time at home soon. The only real difference now is I know that even if nothing progresses government-guidelines wise, I know that June 22nd will be the latest day I am discharged and I’ll be able to see my family again.

That’s it! Not much else to report, just that I’ve been doing some painting today and am going to watch Brave with Immy and Mum tonight. I hope everyone is well and remember we’re all stuck, separately but together, and we just have to keep plodding on day by day. One day at a time. We can do this.

    Great attitude to end on. Sad about your birthday, but cocktail brunches can wait for you, and at least this is a good birthday to ‘miss’ because everyone else is stuck at home and wouldn’t be able to celebrate… Xxx
