    Yeah - PETA sent out a general message thing to members' phone passes. We all signed a petition asking KFC to do that. I was so pleased when I got the message - I forwarded it to my daughter in law and she will be trying one this weekend.

    I'm so jealous, it looks rather tasty and I'm so happy that KFC has a vegan option. I've been having mcdonalds veggie wrap because I prefer that over the bean burger ( a bit dry unless I smother it in vegan mayo). I'm very excited as well. :hungry:

    That’s good. This my 2nd day now home. I’m ranging between 7s pre breakfast , 8s around pre lunch , 7s again pre evening meal , then around 7-8 before bedtime. So not bad so far I guess.

    @Robinredbreast This was my Dad not that long before he died - this was the summer, and he died in the following January.

    Hants doc appointment was quick, very nice friendly Dr, listened to me, checked me over too. So I am to go for a x-ray, as breathing has been different over the past few weeks, even walking up to the hospital was getting difficult, so when I arrived I tested BG and twas 6.5 :happy: Doc has given me a prescription for two inhalers, Clonil Module 50 micrograms 2 puffs and Salbutamol 100 micrograms, up to 4 times a day when needed, which I will get next week.
    So having a cuppa now and then I am going to get started on decorating my kitchen/dining room and not going to let a bit of breathing difficulties get in the way. Love decorating, but loath the prep work :rolleyes::meh:

    @Robinredbreast I'm so glad you have some meds that will help. I expect your poor lungs are still recovering to an extent, and don't need to be stressed out. Nice productive visit!

    Not sure if it is because of last year, also I am an ex smoker, 9, !/2 years now, plus with the Scoliosis too, my spine is curving. Doc said 'ah yes you are a bit lop sided' lol Inhalers are now given straight away to see if they will help, instead of waiting weeks for the x -ray result to come back, then giving out the Inhalers.
    On wards and upwards, painting needs doing...........................:)

    You’re doing great, it’s a steep learning curve and you’ll soon get the hang of things. Mistakes will happen, but they’re a great learning opportunity ;) Learn how your body reacts to stuff, and you’ll get in tune with how to be a pancreas. It’s difficult at times but you’ll learn resilience and resourcefulness. And we’re here to help where we can :)
