    16.8 is high for you Johnny, I bet you are giddy with the sugar? Will it make you tired tomorrow/today?

    Well he’s definitely fighting an infection because B.G.s are up in double figures . Lowest reading being 10.1 . He’s stopped painkillers and is using a Far Infrared Heating Pad . For treating his fibromyalgia and so far so good . It’s an early birthday present for him as I couldn’t stand by watching him in pain no more . He seems to be sleeping better but not sure if it’s down to a change in weather or not .

    One more week of antibiotics left . He’s still getting out of breath. No sign yet of physio therapist or physical disability team. BGs are still high.

    I’ve woke to find I have very little movement in my left arm . Think it’s a trapped nerve . Arthritis is still very painful but I’m just about managing to help Ron with his everyday needs . Unfortunately he doesn’t post anymore due to brain fog, but I will pass on any messages from here to him .

    good afternoon, @ickihun, i'm very well, my care coordinator saw me today at the lambeth treatment team and gave me a possible moving date to my supported housing family-type carer-facilitated accommodation in late may to june as celestine (shared lives network) carer is flying to jamaica for easter and her holiday coincides with my care coordinator's annual leave so nothing can be arranged before then. my tenancy ends in june on my current independent living council flat to prepare me for my move.

    lots of love to you, pet. hope ron and tina are okay. i'm still praying for you all.

    Sooo exciting. Well you have done it @JohnnyBaker87. Well done. :) :) :)
    The time will fly by.
    Get some boxes from your local supermarket. Start boxing off your non-essentials?

    Very tired. My arm is in alot of pain, on top of my pelvis/back.
    Ive taken my regular painkillers through the night but only Amitripyline painkillers help fully but I haven't taken one for a while as they knock me out and as a result I cannot alert myself to an alarm clock on school days. :(

    Antibiotics haven’t helped him . Last night or rather the early hours he was in bed coughing his lungs up . At one point I thought he was going to be sick . Even when he was slightly elevated it sounded as if he was drowning . I do wish he would go for the x Ray dr wanted .

    He’s tired as he said he’s not slept but I’m pretty sure he was asleep when I woke earlier . Today he’s got someone coming from the physical disability team to do an assessment. So will let you know later what happens .
