I have a shiny new car.!!! brand new model Ford Fiesta style+.in ocean blue,lol.and its lovely.i finally picked it up last friday from the dealers,after the first that was delivered to them was damaged,( been deliberately scratched all along the side,)and this one held up by bad weather.it was supposed to have been ready on the tuesday,and i had already sold my car,a friend bought it,rang me on the monday night and asked if she could have it the next day,unfortunately the next morning the dealer rang and said i couldnt have my new one until friday as there was a problem with motability,so i was without a car for 3 days,lol.i wasn't going to lose the sale of my car,and being fair they did offer me a courtesy car which i refused.to make up for it they did give me a full tank of fuel.i have to say i am really pleased with it.first new car i have ever owned,air con.heated screen,you name it its got it.that was the high of my month.the lows more than made up for it though i'm afraid.
Mum was taken ill 2 weeks ago on the thursday night,early friday morning,she had diarrhoeah really bad,seemed better friday though felt poorly,saturday she was in and out of toilet all day,then sunday night,she was really ill,didn't make the commode which is near her bed,rather unpleasant,poor mum.for 3 nights i was in and out of bed seeing to her,as she was really ill,so much so that i called Dr.M.out on the tuesday,he prescribed stronger tablets than the over the counter remedies i had tried her with,and thankfully it cured her,by the thursday she was finally better.whole week though for her.she is so apologetic for making a mess it hurts.you know?she can't help it,i know that she doesn't do it deliberately,and i get so upset to see her suffering.bless her,she is no trouble,just gets confused sometimes,and being so ill was nasty for her.
While the Doctor was here i asked him if he had had the results from the hospital of my heart treadmill test.those results were supposed to have been sent to him over 3 weeks ago,not a word from the hospital,so he promised to ring the hospital,again,and ask what had happened.funnily enough on the saturday i had a letter from the Cardiac dept.it said that as i had discomfort in the first 3 minutes of the test,and as i was getting angina,it had been decided by the consultant to conduct a further angiogram to see if i have another artery blocked.i have been placed on the list and to hold myself on 24 hours notice to be called in for it.you think they forgot me??yeah,me too.lol.so,another visit to hospital,whether it will be an overnight stay,or whether i can just go in and out the same day i have yet to find out.keeping fingers crossed that there is no further problems.although i do rather think i may have,still have to use the nitro spray sometimes,after exertion.don't nag lucy,lol.i am ok.
Unfortunately,going after the new car last week,i went on the bus to fakenham,and then walked to the dealers,over a mile.and i slipped.came over a bit dizzy,and went down.i didn't think i had done any damage,but i put my back out.all this last week i have been in agony,i can hardly walk,and went to the Drs.on thursday.he examined me and confirmed i had done a disc in.now,i had a disc removed,a discectomy,15 or so years ago,i have 3 more discs crumbling,so i am used to back ache.but this is something else.Dr.M.gave me some slow release opia based pain relief tablets,that had some rather unfortunate side effects. the same side effect as mum has been suffering from.bearing in mind it took me 20 minutes to get up this morning,as the pain was so severe,you can imagine the washing machine was very busy today.never felt so ill in my life.suffice to say,those tablets have joined a list of medications i never want to see again in my life.lol.after a long shower i could finally strip my bed,and tonight i had another long hot shower which has helped.the pain is bearable.
the MS doesn't help at times like that,i am seeing a physio most thursdays now,for help with balance problems i have at times,i always use my walking stick now,and i am seeing a new physio in the next few days about fatigue management.( i manage it well.i go to sleep.lol) hopefully it will be of help.i am lucky compared to many,i discovered a lovely lady called herrad,her blog tells of her struggle with MS.she puts me to shame. her blog is Access denied-living with multiple sclerosis and her partner and carer richies is also on there.link from herads blog.she deserves a look.there is a lady who knows what MS does.please do me a favour and visit her.you rock herrad. thanks for all your kind comments on facebook,any one wanting to add me on facebook,its morton lake.please feel free to add me as a friend.take care all.
