If we were having Coffee: I would remind you that there are lots of other coffee mornings all shared and organized By Diana and Gene’O over at,Part time monster
Come on in it is nice to sit and have a chat after all the hustle and bustle of the past few days. I can still entertain you all with tea and coffee from all over the world not to mention all our cakes and muffins and as Paul calls them sweets! Every single one is calorie free! Plus of course we now have spirits and liquors to warm the coldest of you.
If we are having coffee : Okay I shall have to start by apologizing for being late this week. But it has not been a good day, or a brilliant week for that matter. Today I am afraid you will all have to get yourselves comfy and help yourselves to a drink and while you are at it could someone get me a strong black coffee.
You see I am holed up here on the sofa with my leg up, with an ice pack! … Why I hear you ask, an ice pack? Well if you are all in possession of a hot drink and something to eat I shall explain!
I have a very painful knee, I am waiting for physiotherapy on the NHS to treat it but the pain has got so bad that right now I am in the middle of private treatment because I am desperate. I had my first appointment Tuesday, the physio after asking loads of questions investigated my knee, found the pain OUCH! pulled me about for a while after which she used some ultra sound on the knee, then strapped me up and asked me to RICE = Rest, ice, compress and elevate until Thursday…. all of which I did. I had to return on Thursday when she removed the strapping, gave me some more ultra sound treatment and she also gave me some exercises to do .I have to carry on with the rice and return again next Thursday !
If we are having coffee : I would ask you if you need anything else? What else have we done this week, we have been very busy this week visiting the MIL( Mother in law) and also having her over here to visit. Friday we took her to see the Hematologist, Oncologist. Well as we already knew the Lymphoma was back but the good news is that the cancer has not spread and is just in one place from the neck to the shoulder. The Dr. offered two options no treatment prognosis approximately 6 months to live or Antibodies and Chemo. Antibodies and Chemo is best option so she has gone for that. The Dr seemed positive that treatment would slow the cancer down and could give her a couple more years of quality life she explained this would be a milder treatment to avoid nasty side effects, considering MIL will be 96 years old in two months we think that that is a very positive outcome. The MIL was very pleased with the prognosis though now she is very up and down with emotions. I am not surprised with all the worry of the last few weeks she is bound to be so!
If we were having coffee: I would tell that as I have had to rest my knee we have not really done much this weekend! so there is nothing really to report!
OH! Yes we have finally got our new Fridge freezer into the cupboard made just for it in our new kitchen! Now we have the work tops sorted, the plinth heater and fridge freezer in place I think we can say we are finally done it has only taken us since the beginning of October!!
I have been busy keeping up with Love Is In Da Bog organised by Just fooling around with Bee Imagine a whole fortnight done already!
If we were having Coffee: I would have to say we are all sill waiting patiently for our dear Paul Curran to rejoin us here at the coffee share but until he is well enough and up and running again we shall have to bide our time!
For now everyone Be well and happy!
