Catch Up Time

Sorry ... I seem to start all my posts like that!

Thanks for the Birthday wishes .... I hope I managed to catch up with them all.  Sadly my birthday wasn't great as Mum was taken ill.  I had to take Dad to see the Dermatologist, and that clinic was running an hour late.  He got the all-clear, which was good news.  When we got back, mum was very wobbly, so rather than the Chinese take-away, I ended up making dinner.  In the afternoon I opened Tim and Nick's pressies.  Both my brothers know me well .... jewellery!  I have yet to get anything from Mum & Dad  ... but there again, that's not what life is about.

I went back to Exeter that night late, but after 1/2 hour in work I had a call from Mum to say she had collapsed.  So I ran, calling an ambulance on the way.  I then spent the next 3 days trying to get her to eat, and to drink.  We had to call out an ambulance another twice as she fell and I couldn't get her up.  She is now fine, but still feeling very week.

Jiffy had his op on his rectum on the Friday.  He had a small growth, which has tested as benign, although the vet warned it may return.  He was very sore for a couple of days, and then the heat increased, so he is flaked out again.

I did quite a lot of gardening, so that was back-breaking, but nice to be out in the fresh air.

Yesterday I had a rough day as I think the the stress, and the broken nights suddenly caught up with me.

On non-health notes, my computer had totally died, so I am back to square one, having to slowly upload everything.  I was really thankful I had taken out cloud cover.

Hope all is well with you all
*hugs*

PS - Hope you like the new icon, my brother bought me a t-shirt with that logo on.
