Hello Forkers.....It's October!

Posted: 22/10/2017 at 22:16

Hi all.

Very sorry i missed some important birthdays, please forgive me.

Weekend tucked up in bed, with minimal wanderings, can walk about 100 yards before i get very short of breath.

Back into hospital tomorrow.

I hope you don't mind, but I need some advice and in my experience, you lot seem very good at it.

I am concerned about OH, she really needed the holiday and of course did not get it, plus having the stress of organising doctors and insurance companies.

Now we are back, i am either going to be a patient, or will be about as much use as a chocolate fire gaurd.

I need to do something to help her relax, do some chilling, but I don't really know how I can do this.

I would really value the opinions of my friends on here.

Hi all.

Home for the weekend. 

Lots of pillows plumped up on the bed and the weekend papers to read.

Hope you all have a good one.

Bit like giving Trump the Nobel Peace Prize.

I agree with Nut [ I usually do ]

It does not have the right shape for Pinus mugo, whose many cultivars have a lovely shape.

Hi all.

Not a good day, lots of tests, carried by wheelchair, as too breathless to walk.

Sorry to be so negative, but I can only see bad things today.

try to be more positive tomorrow.

Yes, I did thanks Dove.

You have an amazing memory.

My case seems to be attracting considerable curiosity, for which I am very grateful. 

Always loved the NHS, never more so than now.

" That's nearly an armful " 

Thanks for all the good wishes.

You know you are 27, when the doctor who comes to talk to you looks about 15. Asked me whether I had beenbitten by any wild animals whilst in Botswana!

Hi all.

Must be ill, no alcohol for 2 weeks.

Thought is maybe Viral Myocarditis, ECHO booked for today.

Good scenario, very gentle existence for 2-3 months, everything gets better.

Bad scenario, increased breathlessness, heart failure.

Sorry, i can only see the negative at the moment. Very weird contemplating your own mortality.

Hi all.

Eventually made it home last night.

Sorry to say i am feeling terrible, have seen GP and she is hoping to get me admitted in the next few days.

I will try to keep in touch, but struggling to keep head above water.

Hi all

I am sure Sicily is wonderful, but I have not really seen it. Have been in bed for 10 days, with unknown illness.

at the moment I am terrified, and am just hoping they allow me to board a plane home tonight.

sorry if I am over sharing, but I cannot recommend the feeling of constant impending doom.

hope to be in touch on my return, depending on hospital admission

For you fairy. My favourite mountain, which I have been lucky enough to climb twice.

I have also cycled into the base, along a stalkers track, that starts somewhere around Second Coast.
