Yikes! My sympathies.

The shoes have to be worse. You could conceivably get a dressmaker to make you a coat.

Stirling wears 11 1/2 EEE. We have finally accepted the fact that a pair of shoes is going to cost about $200.

The GPS kept asking us to do u-turns....even when we actually arrived at our destination!

The trip was worth it! All tests show that my back/side pain is no longer to do with my kidneys and is not internal in any way. This means I can cancel two specialist appointments and no more tests. Instead I am going to go back to my physiotherapist because even thought the xrays showed no new fractures in my back, there is definitely something going on there.

Similarly for my throat, it is not cancer and is not a flap of tissue that needs surgery. It is a combination of previous scar tissue and drainage from my sinuses. I already have an appointment with my ENT in September so we leave it there and I just continue on eating what I can and adding supplements.

My breathing test was 50/50 good and bad, but I will deal with it with my Respireologist next week. Mostly it is good, but we need to keep it that way.

The best part of all was when she told me I got a wonderful review from the people at the pain clinic. They said that I was really eager to learn and put things into practice and even under hard conditions I went in positively. This means a lot but even more when my doctor seemed so proud telling me this. We have been together for 31 years (I was one of her first patients on her first day in practice) and have seen the good the bad and the ugly together.

I am still in pain and still uncomfortable with my throat but it is much easier to take without the unknown!

I am going to bed early tonight, try to sleep all night, sleep in an extra two hours and then head into work for a 4 hour shift. Shrek will be going to the music shop by himself (I know I'm either brave or a sucker), it will be his first outing by himself since June 4th.

Hope you get some sleep, PF, you sure deserve it!

Go Shrek! We need to attach a Shrek-cam to assure his progress and safety!

LOL!

He can't lift anything more the 20 pounds for at least another month...so maybe he won't buy any amps or a Baby Grand...

Morning guys :)

Well Steve and I had a very early night last night, it was about 7.45pm that we went to bed.

We got 10 hours sleep

Both feeling a lot better after a really good sleep YAY and Steve feels okay, he is just very tender around the gall bladder where they prodded him bith the doctors and the ultrasound

We have been out in the garden fertilising all our plants and doing a bit of weeding...all those pesky Winter weeds

Also got loads of oranges and lemons off the trees and now about to go for a walk to the garden centre for some things!

It is a lovely sunny day here, perfect for a walk

Hope everyone is having a lovely day/night
