Vibe machine set to 'stun' for Tubs and Mr Pippi, I hope tomorrow goes as well as possible for both of you.
(((Daffs))), sorry that you have had such a traumatic day!
Chuggy, great to hear that all was well with the appendages - and that you got the parking ticket scrapped. The poliss sound a trifle over enthusiastic.
Pipps, I think you are very sensible to let the knee settle before you subject it to running again.
Noggs, I hope that the knee is improving in leaps and bounds - although I hope you are not trying to do any of those yet!
I'm getting used to these 'early' starts for MIL - although I will be glad when I don't have to do them,we were there at 8.30 again today. She made me laugh by saying that we have the system wrong and we should try starting from the end and working forward from there. When I asked 'the end of what?' she said that she was still trying to work that out . Bless her, she's still with it most of the time but does have her moments - the other day she wanted to see the vicar to confess, she thought she had killed someone and put the blame on her eldest daughter it must be very distressing to believe that of yourself but she did get over it pretty soon.
Then TM and I went and sat down by the river. It's looking very turgid and there wasn't much to see other than a glimpse of the heron. I think I will be giving my evening meeting a miss as I am kanackered now
Glad that you enjoyed the lecture Chuggy, it does sound fascinating.
(((Noggy))) I remember my first day after my spinal op, every time they tried to get up I fainted because of the pain! I am glad that you are more comfortable today.
Tubs, I think all the work you are doing counts double!
(((Daffs))) sorry you have toofpain again
No, there is nothing else on offer after the SCS comes out I'm still waiting to see someone at the pain clinic to request different medication (I was referred around Christmas and there is no sign of me getting an appointment yet). There are a couple of things that should be available, according to the NICE guidelines, but I don't know how/where to access them, that's my next challenge.
It's another lovely day here. MS and I ran some errands, had a snack lunch and then went for a short stroll in the sunshine. Ice cream may have been involved...
Nice to see you Noggy, glad that the op is behind you and hope that you are not being too 'brave' to take painkillers as needed.
Tubs, I'm guessing that you have an 'official birthday' like the Queen?
Yums, I'm amazed at the Essex Housework Fairies! All credit to your lads - and your parenting.
Meldy, who could forget your accidental marathon?! Didn't realise it was 10 years ago though!
I'm going back to Southampton on Friday to have the SCS removed. It's not helping and is causing further limitation at a time I least need it. I find it very hard to not be able to use my training to help my family at a time when they most need it. It makes me feel useless and frustrated
I have just been to the hairdresser's for a quick wash so am feeling more human. For those who were wondering - my top half is clothed with things that fasten through with buttons - fortunately, it is nice weather for wearing a blouse rather than jumpers. MS or bff have had to brush my hair for me and a wet flannel has taken the place of a shower. I haven't decided what to wear for dinner this evening. Any more questions?
