I had flu jab last year and suffered with a really bad cold for weeks. It is not the flu jab but the shingles one I had that really hurt still not got to have the shingles one for another 10 years.

Met someone I had not seen for ages yesterday and asked how they were = knew it was a huge mistake the moment I asked. For the next ten minutes she went through every ailment known to man that she had suffered from felt like opening a vein in my wrist!!!!

Best wishes

Peter

Well I had a wander down to the HC this morning, all great stuff, Doc was even smiling, ..........................until, on the way out he noticed something not quite right how I was walking, come back here Catfan I want to check your legs, after a brief examination & a load of questtions he decided that I have a damaged nerve/s in my left leg & he was referring me to the hospital.

That gem of wisdom soon had me deflated, I thought when I was staggering about was I had been enjoying a few pints of Hobgoblin, but no, could be many reasons he said.

So now sit & wait for the cordial invitation to arrive in the post !

We left the HC at 09.20am so then jumped on a bus tp Arnold & perused a few charity shops before finishing off at the Vale pub.

I did say to Mrs Catfan that I felt like an old car, something gets fixed then straight away something else goes wrong ! I should be in the scrapyard !

Ah well, no worry, faith is strong !

Had a weird eye test last year.

The optician said - 'Hmm, that`s strange. I`d like to refer you to the eye clinic.'

The hospital doc said, 'Hmmm. Can you hang about. I`d like the consultant to see this.'

The consultant said, 'Ah - - what`s this? I`m going to ask for a brain scan.'

I was in a right state by now.

When the scan result came back, the consultant said, 'Hmm. That`s fine.'

Never found out what the mystery 'something' was. Glad it was fine though. :)

I had a diabetic retinopathy check last year & they found what was described as a bubble on the back of my left eye, the plan was to put drops in the eye to freeze it then insert a needle through the eye to burst the bubble, I kid you not !.

Went to the QMC eye clinic a couple of weeks later & the doctor read my eye test result & said, with 20/20 vision in that eye I'm leaving well alone, go to the pub & enjoy yersen. !

God IS Good !

I feel brill!!

I was obviously lying but thinking about it.

Hmm, could be here all day . . .

Top to bottom:

  1. Hair: Not much - Gillette IS the best a man can get.
  2. Brain: Whatever . . .
  3. Sight: Needs reading glasses.
  4. Teeth: Pretty much tickety boo, thank you NHS dentist (nice bloke but talks too much!)
  5. Back: Sound but I don't do a lot to be fair.
  6. Hands: Broke and disclocated the little and ring fingers on my left hand five years ago which still aren't, and won't ever be, pristine but I started playing guitar again as an exercise routine so it ain't all bad.
  7. Internals: Good to moderate, can depend on what I was doing the night before.
  8. Hips: Maybe a dodgy one but the juries out, there is family history.
  9. Lower joints: Where do I start? Both knees kafuffed, one worse than the other but I praise the doctors for refusing to operate. Still recovering from a broken ankle after about two years.

And, to top that lot off, I've been known to get the odd bout of gout, now that's painful!!

Apart from that, I am healthy, the ganja helps.

It would be welcome, I always wake up at 3am +- to pee. I realise you didn't want to know that but. . . . I would love to be able to go the whole night un-disturbed but I'm also grateful I wake up for a couple of reasons ;)

Beauty is within and that can be as apparent as outward appearances - at least that's what I keep telling myself!

Invariably when I am on the Underground in London, some young lady (never a man) gets up and offers me her seat. I always think, Christ, do I look that old. Have to put pride to one side, though, because nowadays I am glad to have a sit down and take the weight off my plates.

Is it luck or a miracle?

Measles as a child caused serious short sightedness (-24) and the oncome of deafness.

Lost sight temporarily in my late 20's and 30's with detached retinas. Totally deaf at 55.

Had fractured skull, hip, wrists and collarbone.

After a dozen or more eye ops, a cochlear implant and a new hip I can now drive legally without glasses, hear well enough to get by, and cycle up steep hills.

Currently rowing indoors 20+km a day and play 2 rounds of golf p/w when the weather permits. Only cycle when it's warm though.

Arthritis in a few places but feel in really good shape for a 77 y/o.

Luck or a miracle of modern medicine?

Bit of both I reckon, most of it is in the genes. They reckon they can predict any issues you may have in the future in plenty of time from your DNA now, I love science.
