    Hey folks I'm so sorry I've been absent, You all know we have the Keys to the new house,and we have slowly been taking stuff over to it and throwing lots out, we actually move on Thursday the 19th, My QUICKIE JIVE M POWERCHAIR is now on order from MOTABILITY, and we are all totally shattered,


    My pain is currently very very high, plus the angina and arthritis are playing up badly, not good when trying to move house, But by far the Worst of it is that over the last three days, my legs have lost all strength stamina and muscle tone, I have fallen 3 times in 2 days, not major falls but nasty, I have a large bruise on the left side of my head and face, today I seem unable to walk at all and barely able to stand or transfer, making things worse for my Darling Wendie,

    I Will do my best to post over next few days, but between now and next Saturday the 21st it will be very busy and very hard for us, plus as I say my Pain is terrible right now, Please pray for us, or spare us a thought when you can,

    On a much nicer note Delta our wonderful Dog is much much better and has completely recovered from her attack of Colitus, and she is NO longer in pain,

    PLEASE PLEASE folks I know Christmas approaches fast, and all the excesses of the season are very very tempting, but please be careful, control your sugars well, just the odd little treat,please know it ALL counts, and it's so so easy to fall of your regime,

    PLEASE Don't be ME, Stay Well, Stay Safe Eat Well. ... PLEASE Stay Alive,

    MERRY CHRISTMAS AND A HAPPY NEW YEAR TO ALL !

    With Love and Fondest Regards

    KEVIN and WENDIE.

    It's such a shame, sometimes people just don't listen it's so infuriating! My father in law has been type 2 for about 5years maybe now and he hasn't changed really anything! He has high cholesterol, high blood pressure, heart issues and is obese as well as type 2 diabetes and yet he eats baguettes, pasta, pastry.... The only thing he doesn't eat is sweets/desserts it's the classical naïvety of diabetes that u just can't eat sugar, never mind the carbs! He is 55 and I have tried so hard to educate him since I was diagnosed with slow onset type 1 but he just won't listen.... I fear there is just no hope for him.....

    Hi Kevin, so glad to hear that Delta is much better now, must be such a relief to you. Also glad the move is going well. So sorry to hear of your falls. I know exactly where your coming from on your legs giving way as the condition I have makes me fall down/over when my legs give way. The most serious damage I did ended up with me in hospital for 2 weeks being operated on after breaking (literally) my leg in two places and having it pinned back together. Hope your pain eases for you over Christmas. Wishing yourself and Wendie a happy Christmas.
    Nicola
    P.S apologies for calling you Keith in a pm!

    HI NicolaB70,

    Yes very relived poor Delta is ok, the Move is going well, but it's stressful and tiring and not a little scary, but it will be Lovely to be finally in our new home before Christmas, though we're not sure We will have a cooker by Christmas, so Christmas Dinner maybe a Chinese Takeaway LOL ( It would be funny if it wasn't true :lol: ),

    No more falls yet this week, but I'm sorry about you breaking your leg on one of your falls, it's really not nice to be falling rather too often,

    Pain levels are still very very high, but I am coping right now, especially with the adrenaline rush of the move taking everything else out of mind,

    Thanks for your kindness and empathy, have a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year !

    Hugs.

    Well folks here we go, the Movers are in at 8am tomorrow and we finally complete our move, boy It's been stressful, and very very wearing, which unfortunately has not been good for me, My pains have been building to a crescendo and is almost at its worst.

    Wendie is very very tired, stressed and in pain from her Frozen Shoulder, she's at to do So much of the work, I really hate putting so much on her, but very very soon now with the new house and my POWERCHAIR, thing will be much better and I will be able to do more at least,

    I could easily of cracked under the strain, but with my lovely family around me, and all the Love and Support ere on the forum, we are so far intact,

    I am not looking forward to tomorrow, but Friday morning Waking for the very first time in our new home, and when my independence begins, that is what I really am looking forward too. !!!

    Think of us, send us your prayers, come help hump furniture LOL, I should be around on here over this weekend, thank to all of you,

    Love and. HUGS.

    Kevin, Wendie and Delta the Dog. :thumbup:

    Xxx.
