And, The Good News Is .... I Am Very Healthy!!!

James - singing the blues
Sadly as I sort of expected my symptoms don't fall into any real catagory .... the consultant has done some more blood tests, which I will get the results of next week, but other than that it will end up with a "post-viral" diagnosis!

So, I still hurt, and feel week (although my muscle strength is fine, as is my blood pressure and heart). At least he didn't tell me that my exhausting tiredness was due to my age!

So, no news at all, other than knowing what I don't have!

Over the weekend M&D and I went to a pub lunch with Tim & Claire. It was nice to have an excuse to only do half a day of gardening ... and even nicer to see Claire looking so well - 7 1/2 months after her mastectomy. Mum & Dad have not been at all well over the last couple of weeks. Sadly Dad's Alzheimer's has taken a big step .... Mum has had a couple of weeks of intense pain, but at least is a bit more mobile now.

So, no news for me, but at least nothing nasty is going on.

Hope all is well with you all

Good grief those plates are piled high!!

I suppose eliminating some things and confirming some good stuff is positive - but it must be quite frustrating for you!

Sorry to hear your mum and dad are getting more poorly. Can you get them a home help these days?

I suppose I keep telling myself that at least it's nothing major .... but doesn't help me when my muscles all decide to cramp!

Mum is a very stubborn person - her GP actually arranged help and she politely told them no, she wanted to manage as much as she could and the rest her daughter could do at weekends!

That looks like a fabulous lunch! The photo of Tim and Claire is lovely - she looks really well and I'm glad she's doing so well.

Alzheimer's is such a horrible disease, I'm sorry to hear that your dad has got noticeably worse recently. Are your mum and dad managing or do they have help coming in?

Sorry that your consultant appointment didn't come up with a specific diagnosis - maybe the further tests will help. At least they are ruling things out though, which is good.

It was a great carvery ... and it's so great to see Claire so well and happy ... and laughing about her op.

Mum is a very stubborn person - her GP actually arranged help and she politely told them no, she wanted to manage as much as she could and the rest her daughter could do at weekends! The hard thing for Dad is that he knows he is a bit worse, and hates what's happening.

I suppose I keep telling myself that at least it's nothing major .... but doesn't help me when my muscles all decide to cramp!

I'm happy to read that Claire is doing well. It is very difficult to see your parents decline. And any kind of dementia is particularly difficult for the family to deal with.

Claire is doing so well, it's great to see.

Yes, poor Dad is pretty aware that he is not so good, which is hard for us to see.

To know what you not have is a start - so I hope they'll find something what it is so they can cure it.

Thanks Cordy - it is good to know it's nothing bad ... but is still hard to cope with the symptoms.

*hugs* back
