Did you think that I’d forgotten about “IBFY” this week? I had a blog tour spot for Monday and didn’t want to overdo the musings, so thought a midweek spot might do nicely to share these posts that I had found for you.
We survived our week with hubby away…..just!……..and more importantly he survived an activity week with 64 ten year olds. The weather was really kind to them and he returned looking more like he had been to Spain rather than to Kent, the sun tan covering any signs of exhaustion! At this end I continued to share drugs and my CBD vape with the politics student as he nursed, and continues to, his dislocated knee; there was one faint/fall/dislocation and only one set of plans cancelled. Not too bad going! The lovely girl even managed to get out of bed every morning to do her paper round without her dad dragging her out of bed.
As hubby arrived home, the eldest and a group of friends headed off for Snowdonia, North Wales….to go camping! Pitching a tent in the dark on one of the coldest nights this year – not my idea of fun and I think the young engineer’s better half would have preferred a B&B. They actually had snow and built the snowmen to prove it!
Meanwhile yours truly now has the results of my neck x ray and unsurprisingly it shows disc and degeneration problems in both the cervical and thoracic spine. “Where shall we refer you?” pondered my GP……um, how about somewhere that can arrange new bodywork! I think that my neurosurgeon might go off for a very long holiday when he sees my name on the Back Pain Clinic patient list again. At the moment I have no expectations and want to avoid more surgery – be it on my shoulder or my spine……time will tell!!
I hope that you enjoy this mix of blog posts that I have found this week – I have finished with a short video to highlight pain in Ehlers Danlos Syndromes Awareness Month. So sit back with a favourite cuppa and happy reading!
Please like, comment and share!
Have a great week,
PS: Happy Birthday, Dad!
