All over …


Well … almost “All Over”. I’ve just got to get through the copious amounts of “Happy New Year” messages and we’re done until next September/October when the whole farce starts again. I think I’ve said enough about me and Christmas over the years, so I’m drawing a line under it (see below) except to say … Continue reading All over …

Back on track … hopefully


My INR results came back today, and it had gone down to 2.7, which is around about the target date. The anti-coagulation clinic still wants me to be checked in a week, but strangely they have requested that I be tested on Wednesday instead of the more usual Tuesday.

So often when I come to add a post title, I do struggle. Well it's the Bank Holiday, and … Continue reading Struggling for a title …..

Back to sort of normal ….


For the past few posts, I have been concentrating on my "Life changer" thread. That thread is now being wound down and I'll continue with my normal postings. So where are we now? Well because of the operation, I'm currently on sick leave whilst I build up my strength again. As I mentioned before, I … Continue reading Back to sort of normal ….

Life changer – Discharge Day


So now we come to the day that nearly spoiled the entire experience. I had been awake since 6am and my bags were packed and I had geared myself up for leaving the hospital. I felt that it could be a bit of an emotional day and was beginning to prepare for it. I had … Continue reading Life changer – Discharge Day
