You seem amazingly cheerful about it all! Because it couldn't have been pleasant with all the shock of it all and the unpleasant tests and then the op. But great that everyone was so nice. Are you by any chance a Jehovah's Witness, or something, that talk about transfusions?
Busy- Lizzie. So you have sussed me out. Yes. Have been for the past 64 yrs. Might I say. I respect each individuals beliefs etc. In todays world, as I am sure Scott will agree. Mankind in general has so alianated itself from the grand creator. Mike honestly and truthfully respects each and everyone. At the close of the day, each to there own, and you reap what you sow. However, this is a gardening forum, so unless aspecific point is raised in relation to ones individual faith or following, can we leave it there. Naturally to share thoughts etc on a religiouse note Then fire away, but please remember this is a gardening forum.
So glad to hear that the experience wasn't too bad and that you had such wonderful staff. Welcome home and welcome back to the forum - but take it easy
Hi Mike, Pleased to see you back safe and sound from your op and I hope the road to recovery is short.
My Step-Dad has a lot of problems associated with his irrigation and has been going for tests for some time now. I can appreciate greatly what you've been going through.
On the subject of religion you're quite, it's not appropriate. I have always been of the thought that it's the person that matters not what football team they support!
Sorry should have read "quite right"
Just wondered, don't want to start a religious debate! I'm C of E. Anyway, glad that you are better enough to come back here, Mike.
Glorious day today, lots of roses out in my garden.
Glad to see you are back safe and sound Mike
Hiya Mike. I thought you were a Jehovahs Witness when I started to read your post.
My own mother is a JW and I myself attended meetings over many years.....not now. Took hee to the recent Memorial. Witnesses call on me .....many are good friends but I have a bitterness about our creator that makes my feelIng for him difficult. Two edged sword because my own mother and my deceased sister (dying at 32) had great faith that helped them a lot.
So, Mike, knowing the Winesses as I do I'm sure you are having good support there.
All the best Mike
So glad to see you Mike
Good to see you back here
Hi, Mike, good to see you back and hope the recovery is going well.
Good to 'see' you Mike, take care and enjoy the rest. Best wishes Lily x
In general. Approaching op day, to be honest. I was seriously thinking about leaving well alone. I will be 75 this year. Despite I am blessed with two lovely daughters and three grandchildren. In all honesty. Mike is very lonely, I miss my Valerie so much. Fifty years togerther is quite a time. So if you can understand, deep down, I thought this my be my exit ticket, selfish, yes, but I have my thoughts and feelings. Thankfully I had by this time met up with so many friends who like me, loved gardening. That's you lot. [much love]. It is so easy at tgime to type out various wishes etc. In this case I feel that we have very much become a great family. I find it very much in keeping with gardeners in general. Have you noticed, unlike other trades etc. We gardeners never criticise anothers efforts. At the momement I am in quite a lot of pain. To be honest, prior to the op, the only pain I experienced was that of the many examinations, things being poked here and there. As Cpl. Jones. Dads Army , says. They don't like it up em. No Jones. Neither do I. I have to attend my local hospital this week, hopefully to have this catheter taken out. Believe me, it is one thing to be able to wee whilst walking around, but believe me. It is so painful. Even more so, as at times tiny blood clots are passed plus some debris. Anyway time is passing quickly. In all honesty and truthfullness. Thank you all so much for your support, lone, kisses [I like them] and hugs. Folks you really are such a wonder bunch. God Bless you all.
Can the district nurses not give you anything for the pain, Mike? In this day and age there shouldn't be any need for you to feel like that, surely?
Andy and friends. Thank you. As I have said before. On my bottomit doesn't say made inTiawan. No it says. Made by Dunlop. Dunlop always bounces back. LOL
You're a brave man, Mike, but I hope the Doc can give you something better for pain.
I know what it's like to lose someone, but I was only 47 when he died. Over 15 years ago. Have re-built my life since, but wanted to die at the time, although I have 4 lovely children. Met 2nd OH 6 years ago. When I look back I think it is probably easier being widowed earlier (never easy) but will probably have to go through it again, he's older than me.
Oh Lizzie you made me cry, how sad, but you'll have lots of happy years yet hugs.
Mike sorry to hear you are in pain, hope the docs can help with that. Take care, very best wishes and extra big hugs love Lily xx
