By the time this gets on NS you won't be able to see it Trogg, but just to let you know you'll be in our thoughts and our best wishes for a speedy recovery. It was a pleasure to meet you at the Wheelhouse. Kind regards, Barrie and Tina.  thumbsup

Got up early and prepared to go for my oncology visit. They changed the day from 5th to today and on the way there a doubt crossed my mind that the time of my appointment was wrong. The nurse said the appointment was tomorrow for a TAC. Yes I know but the visit was with the dr today. Anyway after some other discussion with the main secretaries they said the same thing and it appears that the one today had been cancelled and another appointment given to me tomorrow afternoon. No one had had the decency of informing me so now I have to travel to Asti twice tomorrow.  I was annoyed to say the least but glad that both appointments are together so will know results straightaway without having to wait the usual time.

Out to the docs this morning to bark, whine and complain about the bp meds.  He seemed to have plenty of time to chat so we had a good chin wag. I told him I fell over in my veggy garden yesterday. I've lost my balance a couple of times.   Upshot of it was he told me to stop one med altogether then in a couple of weeks we'll see how things are.  Seems like a  plan to me.  I'd rather work with one med at a time than mixing them.

Visited the doc this am to get blood test results.  All numbers right where they should be.  Made me wag me tail.

Came home with a new BP med prescription.  Hopefully this one won't make me feel like a drunken bulldog. :biggrin:

Well I’ve got a full-blown ‘summer cold’. I’ve not had a cold for at least 3 years and I have no idea where I picked these germs up.   We’ve been down on the Dorset coast for a week or so, lots of fresh sea air and exercise, didn’t do me a lot of good.  

Anyway, our youngest son had surgery on his right ankle yesterday.  He damaged it a year ago whilst doing some DIY at home. He stepped down from a step ladder and stood on a dog toy.  He went to A & E , had an XRay and the doc said it wasn’t broken. 6 weeks later he went back to hospital still in pain but they again said it wasn’t broken.  A couple of weeks ago he saw an orthopaedic surgeon privately and yesterday he had keyhole surgery where the surgeon had ‘a good suck out and scrape out’ (surgeon’s words) and is fairly confident he’s cured the painful ankle.  Andy is now on crutches for 2 weeks and can’t travel for a month.  But that’s not all ...... on 15th August he’s booked in for surgery on his left elbow.  He broke it when he was playing rugby 25 years ago and it’s been paining him for some time. This problem is likely to be arthritis, which seems so unfair for a 40 year old.   He lives alone and  I wish he lived closer so I could help him more. I’ve offered to go and stay with him in Hertfordshire but I don’t think he wants his Mummy fussing over him!

That's hard on a relatively young guy.  Hope he gets it fixed.

Lizzie,  so sorry to hear about your  boy's problems, also your summer cold....  can't you just go over to his house anyway?   I think I would, AND stay for a few days..  If he makes any protestations, just tell him YOU NEED to be there because he's your son  and that doesn't stop just because he's grown up...!!

But you know him best,of course, and maybe you're not as pushy as me!      ('Pushy is the wrong word, but I can't think of another suitable one at the mo)

 

Hope he (and you) improve soon anyway xx

Now there's a concept to wrestle with Margie being pushy.....               :laughing:                         No offence Margie but it does seem a bit of an oxymoron...

I hurt my toe last year, it hurt like hell when I did it but it soon settled down. I had an X-ray which revealed it wasn't broken but now after a year it looks dislocated so that's next on the agenda. It never finished does it. Things didn't happen to me when I was younger it's all happening now.

Gave you a like, Nonna.  For your positive attitude.  Sorry about your toe.  What you said about stuff happening is so true and especially as we age.  I never thought I'd get to be this old.

Other than a couple of hernia ops, I'd had nothing whatsoever wrong with me. I get to 70, and everything starts aching, sagging, dropping off. 

If i'd have known I was going to live this long, I'd have taken better care of myself !  No I wouldn't, it's called living !

I'm a happy Bunny tonight :laughing: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 had had visits and scans every 3 months for a year and a half.

Thanks everyone , yes it's a relief. Coming back home we spoke about the news I had 10 yrs ago and the emotions we went through. But, I'm still here and I intend to enjoy the rest.
