Such a sad story Ewen, here is hoping that with your grit and determination you can get back to a level of fitness that will allow you to continue your passion for walking and camping. Chin up mate, keep pushing one day at a time. 👍🤞

Kindest regards.

Mike.

Speech to type?

Had a shave this morning. Managed to not cut myself.

My wife is Scottish, and although she has lost her accent, her mother hasnít. There is no way speech recognition would know what she was saying! 😂😂👍

I left Scotland in 95. This August I will have lived outwith Scotland for as long as I lived in Scotland.
I still have my accent and, yes, speech recognition needs time to learn it. Alexa has but Siri and Google haven't got it right yet.

Such a tough journey Ewen.

Mobility and function in hands takes a long time, fingers crossed.

One of my staff members used Dragon speech recognition software, made especially for people with Ďconditionsí so much more sophisticated than Alexa, Siri etc.

Are you getting an OT assessment / support?

Keep your bravery and stoicism out of sight from her insurers representatives!

I have an insurer medical appointment on Wednesday. I'll be letting him know just what I have from her actions.
Currently back for another x-ray after the lunchtime ones. Consultant not happy with my right hand as it is still swollen, can't make a fist and one finger crosses over.
Then I will have some physio. I'm signed off from OT and into the hands of physio now I'm getting a bit peed off with it all.

Thanks. It is the frustration more than anything else and the boredom. A lot of people are way worse off than me. I can walk, do most things for myself but, yeah, the future will mean being careful. I don't even have my own transport until this rigmarole is over. Currently not allowed to drive and haven't had a payout from her insurers. All complicated by her impending prosecution. Her insurer is hiding behind no liability until the gardai finish investigating.
The Gardai have told me she admitted liability to them and they have the footage.
I am looking forward to having a pint at Houston station. And then the train home.

You are an example of positivity to us all - thank you.
Hopefully things will continue to improve and that decent night's sleep will happen soon.

Finished the hospital visit. Hand is set fine but have been referred back to OT hand clinic.
The neck brace can be removed in stages over the next month with physio to build up muscle etc.
So sort of good.

It is thanks. I have the brace off while at home but still wear it for travel and when in pain. OT has been excellent. Still can't make a fist or bend my wrist back. I can't lift my head back or turn to side but better than it was.
Compo is waiting until prosecution goes ahead but claim is ongoing. I will go up to hospital on Friday for orthopaedics, physio and OT. Need to go to GP as sick note runs out at end of month. I can now write but difficult and the standard of a 5 year old😁. Keyboard and mouse use is painful. I will need to play catch up at work as there have been a lot of changes.
I have had instances of memory loss and some cognitive function has been impacted. It is all a bit of a faff now
