Wives have words sometimes that leave with no doubt on the error of your ways. LOL

 

I'm sure they are trained at their mothers knee Trogg. The look, the pursed lips etc all learned from an early age.

Well i woke up with normal stiffness in my bones, feeling sorry for myself, then i  recalled the day before, outside next but one neighbour's was an ambulance, Margret our friend had just made 69 Tony her husband had sent for the ambulance, he thought she was having a stroke, the men would not let Tony go in the ambulance with her, he had to wait for a car to talk him,  sadly Margret passed away, so compared to this my aches are nothing. 

RIP Margret.

Sorry to hear the news about your neighbour, Mary.   I expect her husband will need a lot of  support after this sudden death.  Do they have children?

Sorry to hear about your neighbour Mary. As Jill says 69 nowadays isn't old. It so sad for her husband , a shock to say the least.

My neighbour went to the chemist to do a casual ecg . The results are immediately referred to the hospital and within an hour she was in A& E. They kept her in 3 days. She had no symptoms, only feeling tired. She hadn't fainted , felt nothing was wrong. You never know do you ? Maybe this heat is getting to everybody, I know its getting to me just at a time that I don't want it.

Had my oncology visit after all the confusion of appointments and report not being available. Consequences being because of the number of scars I have on my liver ( thermoablation) the onc is worried about one of them it has increased in size ( every scan I have had reveals these scars) so I now have to have  a P.E.T. scan. Hes trying to hurry it through because of this op I have to have on my back. Hes made my visit for results on August 2nd. Now hope the hospital doesn't call me until after then. I've said all along that things will clash. I'm so fedup.

Keep positive nonna, and you'll cope. I've every confidence in you ! 

Sorry about your neighbour Mary, especially at a relatively young age. I'm afraid it's all part of life though, we all must get on with it.

Sorry to hear about your neighbour Mary, a good friend of mine died last week he was a day younger than me. It certainly makes you think, enjoy things now while you still can.

Just heard from oncology the P.E.T. scan has been booked for 23rd this month so they've been very quick. Pleased about that and they said in the meantime if I'm called to let them know and they'll make another appointment. Feel a bit more relaxed about it now. Sort of:mellow:

Pleased to hear your settling in after your move up North, you will find they are a friendly bunch despite the rumours of the heathens up North. I am positive someone will recognise you and want to renew friendships, be careful though some Northern husbands can be a handful. lol

Ben is recognised wherever he goes. His past is infinite. We will never know the full story; it would cause the internet to crash.

Best wishes from me too Nonna, also sorry to hear about your neighbour Mary, such a shock for her family.  

 

I’ve had a busy few days as my husband has been in Ontario for 5 days, attending his eldest sister’s funeral. She was only 82 but had suffered with lots of health issues for a few years.  So apart from having to deal with my own chores I’ve been doing all the jobs my husband does.  At least I’ve got my ‘step count’ up these past few days by regularly walking Jack.  Anyroad-up, yesterday my feet hardly touched the ground.  I walked the dog a couple of miles, then shot over to my Wollaton dentist to have a spot of ‘deep root cleaning’ ....... yes it’s just as horrible as it sounds, and this was the second session in the past two weeks.  Mind you, the prior injections are the painful bit to be honest.  Was only home 10 minutes and got a call from QMC to go and collect a neighbour who’d had a shoulder operation in the morning.  This chap is a 79 year old highly intelligent intellectual bachelor with no family.  The other week he’d asked if he could stay with us overnight after his operation, whenever it was going to be.  No problem we said, but I didn’t realise I’d be dealing with him on my own!  He’s got to keep his right arm in a sling for 6 weeks which is going to be so difficult for him.  Anyway, I woke up at 7.30 this morning and discovered that he’d gone home, leaving no evidence at all that he’d stayed the night.  I phoned him to check he was ok and apparently he’d had a bad night with the pain and cleared off at 6am.  My husband arrived home at 9 and all he’s done since then is doze in front of the telly.  Hopefully normality can be resumed but I’ll have to keep an eye on the neighbour.

Had to just drop in in to say keep your collective chins up.  Certainly a lot of trials going on these days.  I'm thinking of all of you.

It has been nice to keep reading your posts.  It's been nice on here just lately.  I'm still lurking around the dog house.  Trying to get my bp meds sorted out.  Another docs apptmt Friday to do some more whining and growling.  Come to think of it maybe I should go and see Jake's vet.  He seems pretty good.

My probs are minor compared to some of yours.

Yes, I’ll second that Loppy. The site has reverted to being a more pleasant institution recently!

Hope that's not kiss-o-death, Phil.
