I'm not particularly fussy about records and that.
I was, however, proud that when I retired from work I was the longest serving member of the service, 41+ years.
And, when I stopped attending my local wargames club I was the longest continuous member, 40+ years so a bit proud again.
Todays record is nothing to be proud of.
I have been to hospital twice today, Christmas Day.
First time was just after midnight and the second around lunchtime. Both were painful, wet and bloody affairs. Two days until my consultant meeting now.
Not the sort of Christmas surprise one hopes for. Hang on in there Jim. Let me know if you require a restorative blether about toy soldiers.ReplyDelete
My main focus at the moment (hobby wise) is to finish a commission I am doing for a good friend. A couple of weeks should do it.Delete
Thereafter I am looking at trimming the dead wood in my collections. I have so much.
I am sorry to here that. Keep your chin up I am sure they will sort you out after your appointment.ReplyDelete
Thanks Simon. I've had reassuring noise from some of the junior doctors that I have seen. Just no sign of an action plan.Delete
Jim, not a place I would wish to spend Christmas, for sure. Hopefully the consultant can provide reassurance or at least an action plan. What I don't understand is why is it so seemingly difficult to see a physician.ReplyDelete
I've been so often recently that I am on first name terms with many of the nursing staff.Delete
Although I've already written a comment elsewhere, it doesn't do any harm to repeat that I - and everyone else who knows you - is hoping that your current medical problem is dealt with ASAP, and that the outcome is a good one. Your fortitude in the face of what has been a very difficult time for you is something that deserves the greatest respect going.
All the best,
Minor breakthrough this evening when I was on the verge of giving in again and heading off to hospital and I managed to pass two massive blood clots which warranted a photograph to show my doctors.Delete
I was pleased to read that you were feeling better this afternoon. Let's hope this is the harbinger of better days to come.
All the best,
Stick in there old boy ... my thoughts are with youReplyDelete
All the best. Aly
I just want to get on with my toys.Delete
Agree with Bob - keep hanging in there and hope things get better.ReplyDelete
Hanging in OK although sometimes it seems to be an impossible task.Delete
Keep your spirits up! Hopefully your appointment with the consultant pays off, and I'm sure you'll be back at the brushes in no time. Let's hope that you'll be able to end this year on a positive note and start looking forward to a speedy recovery in 2018!ReplyDelete
I have an update to post.
Certainly not the best way to celebrate Christmas. I'm sure all will be will and you will,be back on form shortly keep positive
That's the plan Graham.Delete
Sorry to hear! Specially in these days. Can't say Merry Xmas in these circumstances but receive my best wishes for a quick recoveryReplyDelete
Don't think the recovery will be particularly quick but as long as that procedure starts soon I will be happier.Delete
Hope Boxing Day is a much better experience for you and yours Jim.ReplyDelete
It is this afternoon although this morning was dire.Delete
An update will be posted soon.
