Sorry Chuggy you nipped in last night whilst I was composing and I missed your post entirely. I wondered what Yums was talking about until I looked back!
OH still has VERY high BP but at least the sickness and dizziness have subsided. He gets the occasional dizzy spell but nothing too bad. His BP seems higher in the morning but more acceptable later in the day.
The villa does sound interesting. You seem to be good at finding such gems.
I feel for Monty but at least he is happy if he is with you in a storm. Bear was inconsolable during them. He once ripped the (metal) door of the caravan up because we had a storm while we were out.
Blimey, Welsh Poppy that is some set backs and come backs. You do a lot more mileage in a week than I do! It's good that you have that 'me time' too.
Podds, sorry to hear about the NV and his problems. Hope he isn't too uncomfortable. That second fact is amazing. Four hours treading water - he must have been exhausted!
Sue, when my Dad's dog got quite elderly we bought him Arthritium from a pet supermarket type place which seemed to help him a great deal. We also used it on Bear. Evie gets cod liver oil and garlic capsules and is on 'dribble drops' now as well (she leaks when she's asleep otherwise) but at 17 she can still manage 10 mile walks on a good day.
DL I do hope that FC changes her mind as I do think they get a lot out of helping others even if they don't think they will in the first place.
apart from aquarunning this morning I have been VERY lazy so far today. Oh well better go and find some lunch!
