Oh no Jenny I'm really sorry you had to cancel your op, I hope you feel better soon and can reschedule.

The third series of 'Hunted' on TV was a man and his son (who had aspergers) trying to remain hidden from the hunters. I spent the final episode of that series in so much anticipation to see if anyone would win and to see if the young man and his Dad would defeat the hunters or they would catch them... it was truely painful and I was bawling!! I generally don't get soft over babies though... I guess I may once they are grandchildren - one day!

I once cried at a wedding because when we knelt down to pray I bashed my head on the bench in front and knocked myself out nicely lol, ambulance was called... I think I was only forgiven for up (or down??) staging the bride because I was a child and most people thought it hilarious :p
T2 and PCOS. Just had large serous adenofibroma removed with ovary and fallopian tube. Bp is now normal!

Novorapid, levemir, trulicity, metformin.

Unusual for me these days too - normally just have a couple of days snuffling and sneezing, this time it started on Jan 25th - day after Pete's birthday.  Creeping old age or stronger bacteria, or both?

I am feeling better, but there again once I'd stopped 'dripping' I haven't actually felt bad at all - just a few times day and night when either my throat or nasal passages are completely bunged causing coughing/lack of sleep/difficulty and/or racket breathing ie just the norm with any cold I've ever had after the first few days.

I used to say my colds lasted between October to March inclusive and it wasn't that much of an exaggeration - however - Pete's cold has.  I daresay he's been having a chest infection really but it's such a faff getting a Drs apt these days and he hasn't actually felt that bad anyway .......

I would be a bit worried about Pete after this length of time.  Julian had a similar chest infection over the summer, his cough was terrible and the infection went on and on.  In the end he had to have 2 lots of ABs and I insisted he get a chest X-ray.  It was OK but despite the ABs it took ages to clear up and I don’t think it would have without the ABs.
