Jaz's update!!

Well life at rehab plus is actually ok. They work me so hard I have sore muscles to prove it.

Aside from the homesickness and missing mark and the girls terribly, I can now see a real purpose, and even progress. Phew!

For friends and family here's my list of recent improvements:

My right side is fully functional now. Just a remains a little weak. Physio is sorting that out,
My memory is coming back, slowly but surely. Things I couldn't do last week are suddenly popping into my head.
I dropped to 49 kgs in hospital and already have got back up to 53.5kg. YAY!!!!
I can now do several pages in a children's puzzle book. Of course it is rewarding because it is now EASY and every page is bringing success!!
I can walk up and down stairs, without holding on.
I can problem solve and calculate percentages with and without a calculator.
I can even take down accurate phone messages for everybody now.

And unfortunately this is about where I run out of steam. Stamina is not a current strength. But comes with time.
Until next week, I'll look forward to sharing with you again.



  1. Yay Jaz - such good news to hear about your progress. xoxo

  2. Hey gorgeous gal. Wow that is some amazing progress. I'm sure that day to day it feels like not as much us happening. But for us getting these updates after a few days or a week your progress is nothing short of astounding!

    I can imagine there must be times during the day where you are just wishing yourself to be back home. But I know that you know too every minute and day of rehab brings you that much closer to your goal.

    So wonderful that everything is coming back little by little. I know you will be giving it your all!! You are always thought if and the prayers continue from the other end of the island xx

  3. Hey girls.
    You don't know how nice it is too see your comments and know your prayers are still floating around. I pop on and read your blogs too but don't always comment now. I run out of energy really quickly.
    Thanks for your good wishes xoxo
