Hurrah for you Podds! They have taken the pi55 out of you for far too long.
Oooh, a noo car Coco? How exciting! What are you looking at?
Good to see you Noggy! I'm glad that HL will be spared the knife but I bet she is desperate to get that splint off.
Jenni, I'm glad that your bug didn't turn into anything significant. Let's hope that my current runny nose goes the same way.
Safe journey back to the flatlands Chuggy.
I was up and in the pool by 7.45, then picked up MS and SM so that we could hit Tesco. We have worked out a system whereby one of us does our shopping and the other helps SM with hers, that keeps MS and I from coming to blows at least!
Chuggy, we are safe from flooding here being just over 1 mile from the nearest river and on higher ground. However, the river is very full and the surrounding land very soggy so I think localised flooding is pretty much guaranteed.
I had a phone call from my surgeon's sec today, I am back on the waiting list for another trial of SCS It probably won't be until August but at least I have also been referred back to the pain clinic.
(((Tubs))) I do hope that, having waited such a very long time, these incisions do the trick. You paint such a lovely picture of your menagerie, it's easy to imagine to look on Blue's face when he sees Bram with his toys
(((DL's throat))) Happy Birthday to FC6
Daffs, it sounds as if the weather has hit you hard. I do hope that all WAISTers are warm, dry and snug.
It's very wet and grey here again today but not terribly cold. Have been out with TM, the river is very high and the surrounding land is waterlogged.
I'm not even sure that the animal in the photo is a dog
Coco, that sounds utterly ridiculous - especially as the room is actually available. I vote for Chuggy's solution.
Chuggy, 'SCS' is spinal cord stimulator, the device that I tried. There are many people being referred for the same, many of them waiting for months/years and/or getting very poor care when it actually happens.
Podds, my thoughts exactly re the soup maker. Unless Spence or tubs have got Jamie Oliver in their kitchen - in which case they have my deepest sympathy!
Tubs, you are right that it seems that we have to push for everything these days. I am a member of the UK SCS FB group and the tales of poor care make me ashamed to have been a nurse Even where individual staff members have been helpful and caring, the system is such that years of waiting seems to be the norm.
Jenni, I hope those germs leave you alone PDQ.
MS actually managed to stay in bed until around 6am today, that's the first unbroken night he's had for almost 2 weeks.
(((Larry))) Ouchy indeed! Well done on your continuing AA recovery BTW.
~~((DL))~~ It sounds as if you have the measure of the various agencies who are being paid to help FC6. I hadn't realised that she is not a native English speaker, are there any other little challenges you forgot to mention?
Meldy, it has taken you long enough to surrender but it's good to see that the GPO has finally asserted his authority.
Sorry, I can't remember what else I read yesterday before my lost post.
