Dear Izzy @Izabel I love my new dancing shoes... thank you.... it’s my dream to get back to dancing on a Saturday night... I just love it!!
Happy New Year my darling... hope it’s the best one for you... & that your health goes from strength to strength & you can enjoy everything in that beautiful country of yours.
Yes, it’s so sad with our friends.... Im going to the hospital with her on Monday .. she has to have bone marrow taken..... it’s so sad that they are both so unwell together.... neither of them are coping too well with their diagnosis...
Life is not fair.... me & my darling hubby Bill will do all we can for them.... last year I lost my bestie of 45 years to cancer..... so hate that disease.
However, my knee is doing good... still struggling with stamina & stiffness but it’s still early days so I’m not complaining at all!!!
However, we have booked a holiday with all the family in May to Malta... looking forward to that!!
Finally got around to dropping in... it’s been a difficult & busy few months.
However, my new knee been fabulous.. no pain, great ROM, extension getting there.... working on stamina but it’s been so wet here that too much walking has been difficult... but Im so pleased Ihad it done.Hip is also very good! .. hope everyone is doing well
I cant seem to get up to speed!! Yes, age Im afraid is catching up... but so enjoying life without pain...
your radiotherapy must have held you back too.... fingers crossed some fun will help!!! cx
So happy to read your post and to hear that you are doing so well despite the dreary British weather.
Hopefully it won't be too long ...if all else fails the Algarve is only a 3 hour flight today was 23 degrees - bliss x
Today went on my first proper hilly hike with dh and the dogs knee managed brilliantly although i wasnt overly confident the fear of falling kinda holds me back but i managed just over 2.5 hours and nearly 14000 steps
Keep us posted xxx
Just popping in to catch up on everyone...
I’ve been signed off by Consultant... he’s pleased with both hip & knee which are both great.....I’m so happy with them.
It’s been a sad time with our friends... 3 diagnosed with terminal cancer in the last few months... one sadly passed away & funeral was last week. The others are having treatment which is giving them more time...it’s so hard watching them go through this. However, we are trying to keep their spirits up as best we can....
The weather is showing signs of a gradual improvement so a few more walks have been great... still doing as much as possible despite the coronavirus situation.... feel we may well be getting more restrictions soon... have booked hols to Malta in May but fear that may be postponed...
Take care ... Chrissie c
Hi Chrissie Good to hear from you, so sad about your friends life can be so brutal ...glad to hear your hip and knee doing great xx
Yes, the virus is quite alarming we are slowly going into lockdown here with schools closing and all social gatherings being cancelled soon we will all be quarantined at home but if it takes drastic measures to eradicate/contain so be it.
Trouble is the Algarve is a tourist destination and mostly all our lives revolve around it so I fear this year will not be good for our economy.
My 5 month has passed - mainly all good new knee is behaving, my other knee is challenging ...haha probably jealous of al the attention other operated knee is getting haha
Keep us updated and stay safe xxx
I am so sorry to hear about your friends. That is so sad. Life just kicks ya in the butt sometimes. I am sure it must be really difficult seeing them deal with it all. They are lucky to have you as a friend to support them.
