Last session with my lovely doctor this morning who is leaving in two weeks for a stint in our local hospital. She agreed I was right to take myself off the Digoxen pills when the diarrhoea got so troublesome it was like I was in an Ibsen play, moaning "I cannot go on" and said to ring to see a doctor if I had any more rapid heartbeat sessions. But my heart rate this morning was 80 so she was happy to leave it to me to report any adverse signs as there are other medications to try. She also said my urine infection had gone and my cholesterol at 5.1 should be checked in six months to see if my fruit and veg. diet during the summer had brought it down again as she thought it a little high. We bid a fond farewell to each other and I told her I hoped she could come back to our surgery. I had to struggle against the wind to get there but it had calmed a little coming home so I checked on the garden after our high winds yesterday. The barometer had been blown off the garage wall and I picked up an armful of tree branches blown off and dead headed a few daffodils but the pear blossom is breaking in time for Easter!
