So Where Am I Now? I’m back at home and spent all of yesterday playing Wolfenstein: The Old Blood with my cousin on my brand new 55 inch TV, and today I intend to take the dogs on a short walk. Although I can’t manage too long in my wheelchair it’s still a long way from being in a hospital bed, so swollen I could barely move, with four drips attached to canulas in both my ankles!
After the drama of the first few days in hospital things did slowly improve, there was still the constant worry I’d have another angioedema episode, or that they would need to cut the open, but there was light at the end of the tunnel and I was starting to think I would really get home soon.
I thought I’d post something lighter after the last two posts, I’ll hopefully do the final (for now) instalment of that soon. I have been transferring my DVD/Bluray collection to a media server so I don’t have to ask someone every time I want to watch a firm or TV show, during this I came across something I’d completely forgotten about, a DVD labelled Watching Warblers West.

First off this post contains spoilers, I will mark when they start, don’t read beyond that point it if you haven’t seen Rogue One yet! I hadn’t been to the cinema since Captain America Civil War last year, there are various reasons, not having the right carer at the right time, anxiety of being closed[…]
So the year didn’t start well, a lack of care staff, being treated badly by people I thought were friends or at least cared about me, loss and things generally going badly in 2015. I made a decision to take control of things, sort out my health as best as possible
