Pity, it’s a very nostalgic and pretty card.  Hope you have a lovely Christmas.

I hope everyone on here had a lovely Christmas.

My eldest son and grandaughter arrived about 3pm Christmas eve.  I apologised for the state the house was in and I said how exhausted I was.  "Don't worry Mum" he said, "I'll soon sort that out" ....... and he did.  Within half an hour, the kitchen and dining room were clean and tidy.  A small chore can take me several hours to do, but he gets it done in minutes.  He has so much energy.

I had a lovely Christmas day.  I volunteered to pick my grandson up from Ealing, Southampton whilst my two sons prepared and cooked everything for our Christmas meal.  I like driving and the traffic was very light; it gave me a chance to play my CDs and unwind.  When I arrived, my ex daughter in law invited me in for coffee whilst my grandson was getting his things together.  We fell out ten years ago when my son took her to Court over the custody of the children. It was good to put all that behind us and she gave me a hug when I left. 

When I got back everything was under control in the kitchen and our eldest son made some Bucks Fizz for us all. I was then told to go and sit down until dinner was ready.  The rest of the day was lovely too apart from the fact that John wasn't very well and kept having to go to bed to lay down.  He looked very pale all day and had a slight temperature.  If he is no better tomorrow, I will try to get him an appointment with a GP.  I have been wondering if he could be anaemic.
Diabetes Type2 diagnosed March 2014.  Treated by diet only.  HbA1c 60 on diagnosis, 52 in June 2014, 50 October 2014, 44 December 2014, 48 May 2015, 50 Sep 2015, 53 Jan 2016, 50 Oct 2016, 56 Feb 2017, 50 Jun 2017. 50 Aug 2017. 47 Feb 2018. 50 Jul 2018. Pacemaker fitted 2008 - replaced 2017.

When I get old I don't want people thinking
                      "What a sweet little old lady"........
                             I want 'em saying
                    "Oh Crap! Whats she up to now ?"

Hi Pauline


Good to hear tbat you had so much help on Christmas day and that you consequently enjoyed the day rather than it being a huge chore.


Very sorry to hear how ill John is.  Hope you can get him an appointment soon.  Let us know what transpires.
Patti

John seems a bit better today.  He suddenly stopped taking his morphine on Christmas eve and started drinking wine again.  I thought he should have gradually weaned himself off such a potent painkiller but he decided to go cold turkey.  These past few days, he has certainly made up for not drinking wine since November!

Well - it'll help with the pain LOL  Very pleased he's feeling a bit better - but sorry John, I think you were right about the morphine Pauline.  It's actually much the same as being on cocaine and trying to stop that all of a sudden - now you know what 'cold turkey' must feel like!

I'm trying to wean myself off paracetamol at the mo - I've already been on it longer since having the metalwork removed than I was when they originally operated and bunged the scaffolding in there - the good thing is I can't have the same amount of nerve damaged as I had the first time round - knee covering skin was numb for months, so I had very little soreness, whereas this time, owww!  It feels like all the bits that the metalwork was sticking into originally are now sore because what they'd grown gradually used to are now objecting to it not being there now.  Weird, and dunno if it's 'normal'.


Don't get another look at it till next Weds when the stitches are due to come out - so that will be a relief, it's a bit of a milestone I suppose.


Hope the New Year sees an upturn for John and all of us!
