normal service will resume shortly

Some life and health things going on.

-eyes need updating- requiring a trip to town and a follow-up trip, which I can't do today because I hurt too much from yesterday.

-Finally a letter from the hospital about pain clinic and a letter for GP to try a medicine. Go to Dr surgery to make appointment...oh he has left. GRRRR. Let's see, that is 4 since I was diagnosed. and Dr surgery has no appointments unless I try to beat the queue for the emergency ones. (one dr on holiday, one off sick, all others booked up.)

-emails from family is in hospital...'hurt' his hip last week when he was getting the wood in. took 30min to get from the wood shed to house using shovel as a walking stick. Still getting up and down to clean out ashes, etc. borrowed a wheel chair, etc. Oh diagnosis? Broken and dislocated hip. eek which came first? and which developed over the week of soldiering on?

So, today he is in surgery for hip replacement. Still waiting for some message from family.

So, needless to say, I am not doing too well on the 'getting things accomplished' part of life right now. Will post something when I get something to show!

Dad came through surgery well. Apparently they did a partial hip replacement which he seems to have come through fine as of Wednesday evening.
He had broken off part of the pelvic bone!

What can you do? Somehow you want to say that there are no awards for that type of ‘hero’.

I'm glad to hear that your dad came through his surgery well.

I have nothing to add about the state of the NHS which hasn't been said by a million other people but it's not good for you when you are on the receiving end - or rather not receiving!! Hope you get your appointment before FOQ!

Glad he's doing well...I shared this story with Jeff in the hopes that he will remember it if necessary.
