On Friday morning I went to the gym and had a try on the crutches with the physio. I was a bit wobbly to start with and it felt difficult, but I am slowly getting better.
After that I went to get an iceblock with Mum. We went down through the tunnel to the Auckland City Hospital. I got a wildberry flavour. It was nice to leave the room.
When we had finished we went back to the room and Brigette and Bea came to visit me. Brigette read me The Mysterious Benedict Society.
When they had gone I had my pins cleaned for the first time. The pins are the things going into my leg. It was very painful getting all of the bandages off and cleaning the pins. The nurse was upset about having to hurt me. I took deep breaths and listened to music whilst reading a book.
That was the last thing I had to do before getting discharged. I watched the iPad while all the forms were filled in and Mum went to get my prescription for my medicine to take home; paracetamol and ibruprofen.
I was excited to go home.
We visited Nana on the way home because I wanted to see her and she finds it difficult to walk through the hospital to see me.
Getting into the car was difficult. I have to sit in the middle where my leg can stretch forward. I have to sit on a soft cushion. It was sore going over bumps.
It was nice to sleep in my own bed on Friday night.
