My friend managed to get me to the surgery for my appointment in the freezing weather yesterday.  The doctor laughed when I said I did not feel well enough to be ill so the nurse is coming to me at home now to do the tests he wants done!  But I was discharged from the Heart Failure clinic and my kidney function has improved.

Yes Flumpy.  Nurse was pleased with the results from the new medication.  i have to see my GP in two weeks time to let them  confirm my good progress is continuing but have a three month open appointment with the clinic in case I have any worries.  They think of everything!

Yes TY Fidgettbones.  Just had a lot of family visiting!  It is getting colder now so i will not be venturing forth much so my friends will be visiting me!  The heart medication seems to be stopping things getting any worse.

Fireworks non stop round here for hours last night.  It will be nice to have some quiet today.  I do hope no pets were out in it.  Beautiful blue skies and sunshine here in Bristol right now but thick white frost on the grass this morning.
