I've not been on recently as after a serious illness my husband has passed away. Trying to get back to what passes for normality but it is very difficult.

I just read Christine's e-mail that she is dropping out of leadership. I sent her a sparkmail. I hope she does stay on and post to let us know how she is doing. Teams can get along without a leader. We just can post when able.

Hi Court,

We definitely get snow in Scotland, lol. Sometimes a lot more than we want. Edinburgh is about 60 miles from here and at sea level. We are up in the hills and have had several frosty nights recently. Down to 22 F just last week, lol.

How nice your friend wants you to do some cartoons. Pay lots of attention to YouTube and get drawing.

I heard that state of Indian had snow. Don't miss that. Scotland gets snow, right? I was googling some sites and looks like you have some cold weather, in the 40s. that is in Edinburgh.

My girlfriend wants me to keep up my art in cartooning. She wants to start writing little things that her great granddaughter does thru the year and wants little pic of it, like a caricature of her and whatever. I know they are going to a zoo Monday. I guess I'd better seriously start drawing. A lot of youtube watching. lol

I'll be glad when your hurricane season is over too. They frequently end up blowing through here although at a much reduced strength.

Perspective is very difficult to do. I manage fine for a while then it all goes haywire, lol.

Boy, I've been off SP for a while now. How time flies.
I can't get into politics either. I just wish everyone could get along and work together for the well fair of our country.

I'm trying to learn perspective, so hard!! I do better following a youtube then trying to make up my own design, which is what I want to do.

I never think that you in Scotland get our weather as in hurricanes etc. I was surprised that when we get one that the storm goes up thru the states to my own hometown in Ohio. But by then it is a storm not hurricane. I'll be glad when hurricane season is over. DH keeps track of weather, I don't bother until it is something to worry about.

Lots of excitements around our politics, rather like the US. Wish they'd all go away, lol. Our weather is becoming increasingly chilly and damp. We've had a couple of frosts but not severe as yet. Humberto blew through at the end of the week although fortunately it had lost a lot of strength by the time it reached here. Next week is to have cold northerly winds just in time for October. I picked a couple of apples today so I shall use them tomorrow.

I like drawing and painting too but I don't do them very often. Sometimes I take a notion and bring out my pad and do some, lol. No Picasso for sure, lol but it's fun, enjoy yours.

Just opposite of me. I hate hurricanes but the cold up there in winter....Brrr! I have a few cousins and few friends still up there, but anyone close enough to move back to them.

Anything new going on in Scotland?

I started a new hobby, drawing or trying to draw. I get frustrated too easy. I posted a blog with my amateurish drawings. I'll probably give up before I get better.

I hope that goes a little east for everyone's sake. Saw the reports on the Bahamas and it is dreadful. Always seems to be the ones who have very little who get hit the hardest too. I think Michele moved to Ohio but I may be wrong.

DH had a little trouble with a couple shutters, that we will now keep up for rest of hurricane season. Had little rain and some wind, but all that will change. I just wish it would head north and hopefully nudge some to the east, further away from Fl. but not to hit the little countries that have already been hit.

The Bahamas and others were hit really bad, with a cat 5, the worse. Such devastation. I feel so bad for them.

Michelle, don't you live in Florida?

Sorry to hear you are in the path of that hurricane Court. I hope it passes you by and you are all safe. It must be easier to put those shutters up before any wind starts though although I have no idea what that entails. good luck with all that too.

Christine, sorry for the bad weather ruining the Gala Day. People work so hard preparing then that happens.

Sally, yeah, we mostly have weeds and where no weeds, just dirt. We laid sod a few years ago then some kind of bug visited and now...an ugly yard.

We've been having a lot of rain but lately just humid and hot. Now looks like a possible hurricane, but it is way off. DH wants to put up the hurricane shutters just in case. I think we are always the first to put them up and then it doesn't come near. Hate hurricane season. He says don't want to put them up in rain in case it comes our way. Also he says if don't put shutters up insurance co. wouldn't pay for damage if it did come.

Sally - we're the same here near Kilmarnock. Except that our grass IS the weeds!!!! The main part of the garden is slabbed.
The heavy rain we had a couple of hours ago was a shame, becos today was our Gala Day - so the floats and parade, the crowning of the Gala Queen, the music, dancing and stalls . . .

Weather is changeable here in Scotland today. We've had sun, clouds and some rain too. One thing guaranteed to grow are weeds and the grass which has often been too wet to cut.

Hi Milton's Mama,

I'm sorry you seem to have had a nasty response to your post. Everyone has a right to their beliefs and lots of people do believe in seeing people and pets once they have passed.

I know from personal experience too that there are more things happening in heaven and earth than we all know or understand and if this gives you comfort then who are we to say you are 'mad'. I'm happy for you to have comfort from seeing your pet.

Sally

I know you don't believe me, because you've expressed as much, but you might find this interesting reading nonetheless:

Anyway, it is a Scottish thing. It runs in families. Usually, you are born with it. Sometimes, however, people start experiencing stuff like that after a personal tragedy like almost dying. One such example is the American medium George Anderson:
georgeanderson.com/about/

I'm not mad, because, this is nothing to be mad about, really. But I just feel very confident in my ability. So I'm being assertive about what happened. You're actually the first person that has said anything when I talk about this sort of thing. I'm usually either totally ignored, or they won't talk about it, but something else entirely. For that reason, I'm only writing about that sort of thing now on another blog, that is a personal place. I did want people to believe me, and my feelings were sort of hurt that no one would. But with my journal space, I can freely write things and no one makes me feel like they don't believe me. So it makes me feel better to write about all of my experiences there. Anyway, so yeah, I'm not going to bring it up again. I guess I just wanted to share the links, but it's up to you if you read them or not.

There are worse things than not having your beliefs shared. I mean, with this, you kind of have to have your own experiences, I guess, to believe other people's. And if you haven't, then how can you believe? Unless you really want to believe, I guess, but that's harder. I know Thomas, in the Bible, had to put his hand in one of Jesus's wounds to believe that he had risen from the dead. He thought it was a look alike or something!

Well, I hope you are having a lovely week! Our leader wrote a nice blog recently, about a visit from her son. You might want to check that out on her page, if you haven't seen it yet.

No, you don't understand. I have a gift. I can hear the dead. My cat is still popping in to visit me. He literally woke me up the other morning with his meowing. And a couple weeks ago, he brushed past my leg in the dining room. And I saw him outside a week or two before that, and he's like made of this golden light now. If someone really loves you, they'll come and visit you after they've crossed over. But not everyone notices. You have to have the gift.

My grandpa, was in a wheelchair for thirty years, the entire time I knew him. And after he died, I received a visitation, and he was walking around. This is nothing I could have imagined, because it had NEVER happened before! If you don't see a spirit after their passing, you might be able to have a dream about them. Perhaps you can remember a dream like that. Spirits resort to visit us in our dreams, since most people can't discern their presence. Gaelic people have a long history with having the gift. It's been well documented.

Hi, how is everyone doing? We're doing fine. DH is doing well with his radiation and my mammo and ultrasound are good. We've had some hot days like in the 90s but feel like the 100s. Feels a little cooler, like in the 90s. Still hot though.
I've been trying to work on my family tree, my Ancestry subscription runs out end of this month. I'll still be able to work on it but not get into all the documents etc that I can as a member.
I forget to get on and update the National Day of on my page, but I did put July on today.

Not a great deal happening in Crawford Court but our weather is still not very seasonal. It's been dry, more or less for the last couple of days and yesterday was quite warm, around 70 but today it is decidedly chilly with temperature barely into the 50s with a cold north wind. Still, I get my laundry dried outside so not all bad and yesterday I got some sweetpeas planted for summer colour, well I hope so anyway.

Hope everything is going well or at least better for you and your family.

Auna, when I took care of my mom, she had a bell she would ring during the night and after she passed, I could still hear that bell for quite some time. So I know what you mean hearing his meowing. We lost our dog in 2004 and I still miss her but it does get better. You remember the good times. Everything takes time and everyone goes at their own pace at healing. Take care.

Thank you, Court. I'm still feeling pretty dejected about it. I actually heard him meowing the other morning, so I guess he's going to be popping in and out to say hello. That might help me. I just don't think I'll feel happy, truly happy, for a long while. I've just resigned myself to that. It's easier to not try to cheer myself up. In the past, I've noticed that can just make you feel empty and sadder. I'm trying to be thankful, though, for our time with him. We had over a decade, and that's not so bad, is it? He was about fifteen.

Well, I guess that you'll have to go visit the other site if you want to know what it is you are supposed to be doing. It sounds intriguing! What is the other site?

Auna, so sorry for the loss of your cat. I had a dog, so I know how they are part of our family. I agree with Sally, it is very upsetting.

There was something I started here on another site Scottish forum, but forget what it is I'm suppose to be doing.

Hi folks,

Court, I'm so sorry to hear your husband has had that diagnosis. It must be an extremely worrying time for you all. My very best wishes for a satisfactory conclusion to this. On a brighter note I hope you enjoyed your break.

Auna so sorry to hear your news too. We do get attached to our pets and it is very upsetting when we lose them. I hope you are feeling better now.

Hello, guys! I'm just catching up. I haven't been visiting people much since I lost my cat, Milton, April 5th. I knew he was getting older, but I was so surprised when he died. I'd convinced myself he was immortal or something.

Sorry about the health problems touching your family, Court. I hope things turn around soon.

We just got back from a mini vacation yesterday. We went to Kissimmee, Epcot. It was a nice get-away. Now DH has a cold, but he enjoyed his time away. And all the eating!!

Oh yeah, just before we left for vacation we found out DH has Prostate cancer. Doctor said it is a slow moving cancer, but he will need a Cat scan and bone scan to be sure it didn't spread anywhere else.

Waiting for the next shoe to drop. Okay, that wasn't very positive, about the shoe. We have faith that all will go well.

How nice to be getting a new car delivered. I hope you enjoy using it. Drive safely.

Sorry to hear about that young woman suffering those strokes. As you said I don't think there is much else to do but pray for her. My best thoughts to them all.

Hi, how is everyone doing? DH got a call that our new car is coming in tomorrow. I wish it had the front end collision, think it is called 'Eyesight., but I'll just have to be careful. lol. Subaru Crosstrek 2019.

My friend's son's fiancee is in a nursing home now with massive stroke on left side of brain and had a stroke on the right side. Only a miracle from God will save her now otherwise, she could live like this for a long time. But we have hope and keep praying.

Going to dentist tomorrow and hair cuts and get the car. Pretty busy day tomorrow.

It doesn't do to let any computer thing rule your life Court. Cheers to you for doing other stuff instead.

TV channels in Scotland really depend on whether or not you are linked to cable or satellite for your viewing. We can't get cable where we are and we don't have satellite either but we do have a computer linked connection which increases the number of channels we get. I think there are about 40 channels in the TV plus whatever other ones we pick up as and when we wish.

Good to hear the young lady who isn't your son's fiancee is starting to come round. If she was still in a coma I don't think she would follow with her eyes. My eldest son was in a coma for a couple of weeks, after a road accident and he responded to some of the conversation but not by much. A stroke can cause lots of other problems including losing speech and movement but nowadays it's amazing what things they can do to help. My very best wishes for a speedy recovery for her and the rest of the family.

OOps Auna, I forgot and went to your page and hit add as friend then remembered your post below.
Hope you all are doing well. I'll have to see how Christine is doing now? I'm sorry I don't get on as much as I should. Used to be SP ruled my life posting everywhere. Finally got off all active teams.

I was trying to find something on TV about Scotland, like touring or just a documentary, but nada. Do you have a lot of tv channels in Scotland?

Kim is my friend's son's fiancee. I didn't think I wrote that right in my last post. Sounded a little confusing to me coming back and reading it. Sorry. This all started around the 18th.
Today's update said surgery went well, takes around 7 days to see if swelling will subside.She did squeeze he PA (?)'s hand with her left hand and appears to be tracking with her eyes a bit. I take it she must be out of the coma, not sure, but I don't think she could do that if she was still in a coma, could she.
Like my SIL said 'answer to prayers', but she still has a long way to go, but at least looks a little more promising. Thanks.

So sorry to hear of your son's fiancee being so ill. My very best thoughts go out to you for a swift improvement in her health and for the rest of the family. You are so right, we just never know what might be waiting for us when we get up in the morning. Good luck too on getting that sale completed.

We had rain here today. It will help the bushes planted at mom's house. Snow! Will that usually come to an end by April? I think up north it does....usually.

We had our closing today and the buyers will have theirs on Thursday. They had a family thing that caused them not to have their closing today.

Could I ask you all for prayers for my friend's son's fiancee, Kim? She is in the hospital with a massive stroke, in an induced coma with damage on her left side. My friend's son Rick and Kim were planning their wedding, but now this has happened. We're all hoping for a miracle. It was all so sudden. Thanks for any prayers.

I look at my family, BIL is in treatment for cancer, mom passed, my DH is going for a prostrate biopsy, but we are blessed when I see what my friend and Kim's family is going thru. Life can take a turn any minute. You never know what is going to happen.

That's good news about the house sale Court. Roll on getting it finished.

Being overweight can contribute to high blood pressure. High blood pressure doesn't make you gain weight.

The weather here is very changeable. We have had three winter storms blowing through in the last week or snow. Combination of snow, heavy rain, strong winds, oh and some sunshine in between. At present, Sunday afternoon, it is cloudy but bright. Waiting for next shower of rain, lol.

Yes, that was a surprise, the closing will be on the 19th if all goes well. We thought the 13th, but his SIL had it wrong. But hey, that is close enough.

How's the weather in Scotland? What's new happening there?

Oh yeah and I weighed in at 116.2. I was a plateau at 116.8 and sometimes up to 117. Seems like I'll never make the 110 by the end of next month, but have to be determined and health counts.

Does high blood pressure affect weight or vise versa?

We heard that the appraisal came thru $100 more than what we were asking! That was a shock. Of course they won't pay the extra but still it was more than less. We'll pay half of the closing and we'll pay for the new drain field, so I think we are getting off easy, as far as I know.

He said if I get down to 110. That is my new goal, on my SP page I have 107, but I doubt that I'll ever get down to that. It is hard, I had my good tracker completed for the day and was on track except under for protein and fiber, Got the munchies and now I"m over on cholesterol. Still having trouble controlling snacking, but it's better than what it was.

Sorry the MIL house sale is taking time but it will go soon I'm sure.

$100 sounds like quite an incentive but has hubby stipulated how much weight you have to lose, lol.

I guess I have been away for a while. Hopefully your winters will be winding down and melting away. I remember the cold and never liked it. I used to say I hated snow, but, if it was a light snow and ground covered with nice music playing around town...it might be nice shopping, well I guess that's at Christmas time. I remember by this time the snow was dirty and we were all tired of it.

We haven't sold my MIL house yet, but there is an offer that we hope will go thru. We have to get a new drain field put in though.

I'm on a challenge to lose weight, My husband offered me $100 to lose by end of April. emoticon

It's been really cold here, and I really don't like it, because it causes so much more work. I've got to carry wood into the house and it's messing with my joints.

P.S. This is AunaSkate's other account. I use it when I need a bit of a break. I can post anything I want, any kind of blog, without any complaints, since I won't have any friends. I've had a craving for a while to post music that others would find "negative." Or just write about stuff without getting any advice. So I'm going to be here a lot more as LadyCascadia, because it's really stress-relieving for me. But it's me! It's still me. You can call me Auna.

Very tired of winter although to be fair it hasn't been that cold over here. In fact this past week has been positively Spring like. Trouble is I know there is another spell of cold, snowy weather on the horizon, waiting to come in next week, lol.

So, is anyone else tired of winter? We've had lots of snow, sleet, freezing rain, etc. It seems like some storm system moves through every three days or so. I'm ready for spring and some flowers. I bought two pink carnations at the grocery store this week, as a bit of a reminder that spring is around the corner (hopefully!). Have a good weekend, everyone!

So sorry for everyone's health problems. Hope that 2019 will be more uplifting and healthier.

I'm doing okay, the epidural for my neck and shoulder pain is doing okay, still get some pain.Right now it is my BIL who is fighting cancer and doesn't look good after talk with doctor but he will go to Miami to see main doctor to see where to go from there. It's his wife who is my DH's sister and they lost their mom in Oct. We're in process for fixing up house to sell.

I keep saying I really need to get on SP more often, but time seems to gets away me.

Oh, I'm so sorry to hear of your difficulties with your GI tract! You shouldn't really feel anti-social, though, if your health prevents you getting out. But it's true that you're socially isolated. I've been too sick to do anything to do too. It's bad when you don't know what's going to happen, so you can't make any plans. And I've lost my voice before for a long time, and couldn't talk to any of my friends when I saw them places. Very frustrating! It's like maybe how ghosts feel. Yeah, it's just not good to be isolated too long. I hope you feel better soon. I've had problems like yours, with IBS. Mine was caused by too many psych drugs (which I never wanted - I was forced to take them to maintain my place). Also, I had an allergic reaction to antibiotics and after that was pretty messed up inside for a long, long time. Because it was both things, really. They'll both mess you up bad. If I worked out too much, I would have diarrhea a lot. Or if my tights were too tight, if I wore control-top tights. But things have calmed down quite a bit. One of the things that helped me was to have a lot of probiotics. Have you tried to colonize your gut really good with probiotics? I read recently that you're supposed to have three pounds of probiotics in your body. Three pounds! That sounds like a lot, but that's how much you need to help process your food and do other important things. Also, I needed to take it slow and go on walks. It helped, because I needed to build up the muscles in my abdomen better, and the walks can really help with that. If you can, try to add at least 6 oz of unsweetened yogurt to your food each day. The sugar they add to a lot of yogurt doesn't really help, but is counterproductive to the probiotics, as sugar kills the good bacteria. I don't know that it does it directly, but it feeds the bad bacteria and yeast such as candida and then they fight and it kills the good bacteria. Have you had a fecal test to see if you have a C-diff infection? My best friend died of that.

I'll have to go over your list again, but I don't think I can add too much activity right now, since I just recently added one hour of exercise first thing in the morning, before I eat, so that it's "fasting exercise" to burn more fat. I still haven't adjusted to that. I'm afraid it's going to take me a while. I am starting to feel a little like doing other things too, but I'm not quite there yet. This Sunday, I thought I'd walk over to this one church and see how that goes. The people there are nice, and I haven't gone there in a long time. I actually still have a sinus infection. I'm really disappointed about that, because my doctor wouldn't give me any more antibiotics. I have January all planned out. I have all these activities and will be blowing my nose all the time. It's quite distressing!

Thanks for all the well wishes - I just wish they'd come true.

I'm still waiting for one articular appointment at the hospital to come through - for a colonoscopy. Certainly nothing I want to have to go through. But I'd love to know what's causing my gastro problems!
It makes me very anti-social at times, and I have no control over the when. So I rarely even get out to church.
We have a 4-hour journey tomorrow, then again on Thursday - I'd say I'm sh***ing myself about such a long journey - but it's too close to the truth :(

However, apart from that, my recovery from the stroke was miraculous - I don't think that's too strong a word. And in many ways i have been so much better since then!
I was just telling a couple of friends this morning I actually feel as though I'm taller than I was before I had the stroke. And it just shows me how unwell I was becoming, at the time. I was starting to have problems to reach the tea caddy on its shelf - now I can just raise my arm and pick it up! (Except when my back is really sore, like yesterday and today - I found it more of a reach, again!)

Anyways, I've been busy this past week. But tomorrow morning, I'll get into the car, fasten my seat belt, put hubby's story CD on to play, switch myself off - and probably sleep for the next few hours.

Have a lovely Christmas. Have a break and a relax, if possible.
Check out the Countdown to Christmas - I've posted my thoughts and suggestions - and a follow-on to Christmas. So maybe we should be thinking about a general look at activity?
Please let me know any thoughts :)

You sound very upbeat Christine and looking forward to Christmas where someone else takes the reins, so to speak. I hope you all have a fantastic time.

Your elder son and his wife will have their work cut out getting things to their liking. It's lovely her father is coming over from Poland to help too. Very kind of your younger son and his wife to host Christmas.

The most important thing though is that you and your husband are keeping better. Illness causes lots of other problems apart from the actual illness itself. My very best wishes to you for continuing good health.

Hello,my friends.

I'm sorry I've been missing for so long - again.
But some of you know me by now. When I'm not well, I just pull back into myself . Sorry, everyone. But that's just who and how I am.

I am so sorry to read about losses and upsets: personal, close, neighbourly . . .
I know how difficult it is to cope with personal loss and heartache, especially round about now at Christmas.
The very first time ever, that I had nobody to consider at Christmas (well, apart from my hubby and my 2 sons) was the year my Mum died - 18 December. And i have to say it was also such a release! The very first time we never had to go anywhere, be somewhere for other folk . . .

That was Christmas 2004.
Since then, we have had one or other son, or both, home for Christmas.
Older son and (now) his wife have had to share their time between Scotland and Poland, obviously.
Younger son has managed to be home here with us for a few days, nearly every year - even the years he wasn't intending to come home, he has been with us for at least a couple of nights, giving himself time with cousins etc as well.
So hubby and I have been home for Christmas for the past 14 years.

This year, 2018, is the beginning of a whole new era for us, Christmasly speaking!

Both of our sons have, very recently, bought their own homes.
Younger son has had a couple of months in his home.
Older son has had a couple of hours!!!!! They just got their keys yesterday afternoon. His father-in-law is coming over from Poland on Sunday 23rd for a few days.
We are going to stay with younger son for a few days.
And we'll all be together for Christmas - and, as my younger son intended, I am having to do nothing to get my house ready for any of them :)

I had a lovely chat with younger son on the phone earlier this evening. and we sorted out a load of stuff for the Christmas period.
From the weekend before Christmas, to the Thursday between times.
Then we'll be home for New Year. Younger son in Aberdeen. Older son and wife in Liverpool, her dad already back in Poland.
But at least older son and wife will be able to get themselves and their house sorted out a bit more before she has to go back to work. Fortunately, for them, he works mainly from home - so can continue to do what's required home- and house-wise.

I'm sorry, Court, about the health problems in your family and your mother-in-law passing. I hope you are getting a lot of rest and drinking plenty of fluids! I'm on antibiotics too, for a sinus infection that's gotten into my lungs.

Court I'm very sorry to hear your MIL has passed away and your BIL is on another round of chemo. With both you and DH suffering from bronchitis the best you can both do at present is to look after your own health. Then when you are feeling better you can start on the things which have to be done. Just to let you know we are thinking of you. It is an incredibly difficult period to live through but you will get through it.

Thank you for the kind remarks on my conservatory and I must admit we spend a great deal of time in there. We love being able to look out at the garden and watching the birds on the feeders. I totally agree on the Depends BTW, lol.

Sally, what a great looking sitting room. So calm and I agree, inviting.

My MIL passed away 10 days after she went to the hospital. We go to her house daily to get what mail comes in and to see that all is okay. Now to deal with what to do with the things and fix up house to sell.

BIL is on chemo, more intense than what he had before when he got cancer in the first place.

DH and I have been fighting bronchitis, after 2 weeks, his is better, I'm on my 3rd set of meds. Every time I cough hard I have to go to the bathroom....thank goodness for Depends! lol.

Things must get beetter. I have faith. I know God is with us.

Thank you Rosemary although I must admit I said to my husband I was going to put a throw on it to keep it clean, lol.

This is what I have been doing off and on this summer. The view beyond is of my garden.

Oh, whoa! I'm sorry, I had the posts set to show me the first one at the top. So I'm out of order. If you find any meaning in my post, great. Otherwise, sorry!

Thanks for the heads up on how to win sparkpoints!

Court, I think you should go ahead and use any word that has meaning for you and your husband. Don't worry about Scottish norms, if you have a good word that you like. It just has to have meaning for the two of you.

Here is a list of Gaelic boy names:

You might find something there!

Christine, that is great news!! How did the neck x-ray go?

My MIL was in the hospital, COPD. She was sent to a nursing home therapy when she was strong enough. She was doing very well and excellent on her therapy. She was walking with her walker but could do it without, she fed herself and was ready to be released Tue. but then took a turn. She is back in the hospital in intensive care unit on a ventilator. They are gong to try to ween her off. It is so sad to see her like this when just last Friday, day before yesterday (Friday) she was happy, friendly, active.

My BIL's cancer came back after 4 years. His wife is my husband's sister so she has her mom and husband to worry about.

i haven't been SP in a while.

Courti - try to take time for yourself as well :)

I got a good report at the stroke clinic this afternoon - cholesterol 3.6, BP back down too 118/78, liver functions all well within normal parameters, weight down (just 1/2 stone, but still better than it was).
GP last Friday sees no reason why I shouldn't be able to drive.
Blood test tomorrow for potassium, which is still running low, I think.
And a neck x-ray tomorrow as well.

Then hubby taking me out for lunch, all being well - back to the local eatery we went to for our Ruby wedding party. It's not every year I get to be 65!

Good to hear from you Court. The traction on your neck sounds painful. I hope it is fixed now. Sorry too, to hear about all the other health problems affecting your family right now. Best wishes for it to get sorted soon.

Hi, sorry no show for a long while. LIfe just gets busy.
Sorry to hear you had a stroke Christine. Hope you are recovering well. A 1/2 mile is great! Good luck on learning Polish. I gave up on my Spanish.

I didn't get to read all the post sorry. My MIL is in the hospital, end stages of COPD., but she is kind of alert and can even fed herself, but week and needs therapy. I've been having therapy on my neck with traction.

Oh my, my DH has Type 2 diabetes but not that bad, he just started on meds. Reading here I think he needs to watch his eating or he may regret it later.

Well going to relax and watch some TV. Hope to get a good night sleep before starting routine all over at the hospital tomorrow.

It may only be half a mile Christine but when you have been so ill and unable to do much it must feel fantastic. Well done for doing this for you.

Today I managed to walk to the chemist's and back, without needing to sit down for my back :)
That's the furthest I've walked (without a shopping trolley for support) in a long time.
OK, it was just 1/2 mile, but . . .
