How's your day?


Recommended Posts

Hello folks, I'm not dead (yet) but I am quite unwell.

 

On March 5th I had a bit of an accident at home when I lost my balance and fell very awkwardly. I was alone and on the floor, trapped between various items of furniture. I tried to free myself but that only made things worse. I was like this for nearly twelve hours -during which time I became pretty desperate. I was eventually rescued to discover that I was completely paralysed from the waist down. Off to A&E.

 

After all the preliminaries – and a fall from the trolley, a bed was found for me. Next day I was in intense pain in my left hip, thigh and knee. I reported this to the staff and to cut a few days out of the situation, it was discovered that I have advanced (metastatic) prostate cancer

 

I was hospitalised until a few days ago. I am at home now, still unable to walk and in quite a lot of pain. I have a hospital bed on the ground floor and have to be assisted to the commode at its side.

 

Oh well! That's life. Thank goodness for morphine.

 

I will write more when I feel a bit better.

Went today for a nice quiet pint in the Samuel Hall & bumped in to my mate Ian Dawson Over from Spain for a short holiday.  A good time was had by all & a few beers to celebrate.

Me & Dawson.

There have been occasions where I've realised that a particular person hadn't posted here for a while, and I wondered if they are still ok.... And then a few weeks later, they magically reappear

Jonab, sorry to hear about your misfortune. You've demonstrated the point I made a few days ago, but not in a way I would've liked to see. I hope you recover and return to posting here before too long.

@jonab That must have been dreadful for you being alone on the floor after your fall.  I’m really sorry to hear the news of the metastatic cancer too.    I hope the morphine will keep you as  comfortable as possible and hope you have good people to keep you company and look after you x

Ive only just been able to get online and look at NS as we've had a thunder storm and various power cuts. 

Jonab I 've been thinking about you lately and wondering why you weren't posting. I'm so sorry to hear of your illness and your fall. It must have been so frightening and worrying for you.

It was such a long time to be alone with no one to help you. I do hope that you will recover soon and are able to face your other health issues positively. Wishing you all the best. Take care.

Today I planted some late spuds, carrots and a bit of coriander..since my indoor coriander pot got infested with some small aphid/thrip type bugs.  I also have Tomatoes, vine, cherry and beefsteak on the go.

I'm going to plant some Cavalo Nero and maybe beetroot tomorrow if I can get seed.  All a bit late.. but then Spring was late..

 

And I need to cut the grass tomorrow.

 

Other things happening here too.  More to report tomorrow with luck..
