Being the newbie I am to N.S. I couldn't work out how to reach out to Physical Perfection to tell him to get on with life as you never know what tomorrow will bring. Obviously at the moment time

I'm a happy Bunny tonight Went for my oncology visit after I had the P.E.T. scan and T.A.C. a couple of weeks ago and all is clear after the scare I had. The next process is due in 6 months after I ha

Well I hadn't intended contributing to this thread but do you want to know how many staples I've got in my tummy?!!  Actually I'll spare you the details but I want to put on record that my experience

I've got a very sore Achilles' tendon (left) so I'm limping a bit - it's not excruciating but it's beginning to wear me down a bit.... had it for over a week now.  Doing the 'stair' exercises a few times a day but having to use a couple of big books instead because we don't have any stairs!

Dental Hospital appointment at Birmingham 9am this morning. Only about 14miles from home but because of heavy traffic it took 2hrs, we left at 7am and only just made it! The appointment lasted three hours, I wasn't aware it was a double one. Only 4 more appointments and then hopefully treatment over for a while.11/4 hrs journey back, (not so much traffic). Mega toothache now after all the prodding and pushing. Just sat down now ready for a rest. Two mugs of tea, Cucumber Sandwich and a dose of Nottstalgia .....Bliss.............And Relax.:)

Did not quite go to plan yesterday, had to return today because after the laser job my eye pressure went up instead of coming down, all OK today tho after Mrc C applied eye drops every hour (not when sleeping).

I was surprised what the laser treatment consisted of expecting a slight sting in the eyes, but no it was like somone hammering a blunt six inch nail in my eye, three times in each eye ! That's enough to make yer eyes water in itself, but there again, God is Good !!

I wish you all well.

 

Seems to me that many of us here are of a 'certain age', when things go wrong.. bits fall off.. etc.

 

Despite a very damaging heart attack 20 years ago and a couple of minor strokes since, I am remarkably well most of the time.

 

I looked in my local paper yesterday and was quite shocked at the number of people dying in their late 50s and early 60s.

 

At 68 I'm feeling very fortunate.

One of my BILs was planted in Bulwell cemetery yesterday, aged 69, no age really.

 

Talking of ailments now Mrs Cs turn to be not 100%, she has a awful "chesty" cough, started with us both catching a bit of a cold the other week on Merseyside, mine went after a couple of days or so but hers gone on to her chest.

I've been promoted to "mash lad" today !

I'm going to be wondering for the rest of the day, which bits are falling off. Had a quick feel of mesen, and everything appears to still be there!

Sorry to hear Mrs. C is under the weather.  Better get mashing, Mike.  Hope she's soon purring again.

 

Col.  605.  Interesting observation.  I have noticed over the years that the 50s decade is dangerous for many men.  My dad died at fifty four.  I can think of many more who didn't make it through that decade. Seems like if we survive that period we are good for a few more years.  In reading the obits they have a section that just list deaths and ages each day.  It averages six to ten folks.  I am finding that most days at least I think up to seventy percent are younger than me.  A sobering realization. :(

 

As far as parts falling off.  I don't think I'm missing any, but they don't all work like they used to.  I'm talking about me EARS, alright!!!?  smile2  At 72 I'm living on borrowed time.

I hope the Catfans both recover very quickly, and that they are both soon out and about.

I've not posted on here regarding my back and right knee which have both been troubling me for a couple of months. Both are relatively insignificant compared to other people's ailments.

After an X-ray, my knee is just mild wear and tear. I was prescribed painkillers for my back today and hopefully there'll be an improvement. I have got to keep up my exercises though (ugh) 

I was told today that I was in quite good nick for a 71 year old, so I'm quite elated..... I shan't let it go to my head though !  LOL

Exactly Mike. I never realised when I started this topic just how much suffering there is even amongst our little gang. 

It gets a bit depressing at times, and I've become somewhat blasé about others and their ailments. It's only when something goes wrong with me that I appreciate just how much other people's problems are more serious.

I'm 71, and in a bit of pain now and again. It's not going to stop me living for goodness sake. I'm sooo lucky.

I was well behaved at my blood test this morning. Young medical student asked if he could do my blood sample. Told him I was needle phobic. He asked if I would prefer to lie down! Felt slightly ashamed!

 

He couldn't find a vein and, in the end, a nurse had to find one for him in my other arm! I don't part with it easily! Thought I was very brave so treated myself to lunch.

I had bloodwork done last week, and the vampire, sorry lab tech said, did you drink much water. Knowing I was supposed to fast, I said only a few sips. Wrong! Should have drank a lot by all accounts, makes your veins stand out more. You live and learn.

Just got an appointment with a new eye doctor for tomorrow.  Nothing serious, just a routine exam, although I think I will probably need new glasses.  Haven't had any for a couple of years and things are not quite as sharp as they were.

 

What bugs me here is the constant insurance issues.  My health insurance covers routine eye exams and I had a good optician for several years.  Called him the other day and he no longer takes my insurance.  So we go on the coverage roundabout again.  The new guy takes my insurance.  To say I am not fond of insurance companies would be putting it mildly! :angry2:

I had to drop off a urine sample at the doctors this morning. I felt embarrassed as I handed it over, as it looked strong, and was still warm. I apologised and said that I'd washed my hands. LOL
