    Well WHAT a GLORIOUS day.

    Up with the larks, off to hospital to discuss with doc my progress.

    He's saying excellent progress, very impressed
    As was I....:happy:

    Been discharged, all bones set in place and no unexpected movement.

    Bonus was I had first meeting (1on 1) with physio...
    Plenty of exercise examples run through
    (Surprising how 8 weeks laid up can snafu your muscle memory)

    Lots to do over the coming weeks, admittedly
    Next sessions on line only.

    So aching but glowing inside at the good news.
    A hot cuppa to celebrate...

    Best of days everyone

    Not disputing much of that sadly.

    Do think it will be a case of we move on, with some measure of what we do now, practiced by some ala korean/japanese/chinese tourtists, with masks etc

    Some as you say will still be affected, which will be our new normal
    "My roger's come down with covid"
    " Omg, i do hope he recovers and your all safe"
    "yes, we've been advised to limit contact for now, that's why i called,
    didn't want you thinking i was being rude not coming over"

    and sadly the Homes front will be normal to have a bout, much as we might get with norovirus,
    where they'll limit visitors.

    We're clicking our heels at least toto, but we're still a long way from Kansas.

    Some of the elderly getting their vaccines seem to believe they have been freed from a huge burden and are now released.
    I am afraid we have had a serious problem hung round our necks like the Ancient Mariners albatross.
    But we are paying the price for others not treating the planets creatures with respect.
    I wish I could see complete normality coming back to us in all our futures.

    What next will we have to face?
    Meanwhile Nigeria's affluent are driving their bush meat illegal trade.
    I would like to think the Chinese have stopped killing pangolins and eating bats and trading them in disease ridden wet markets but I wouldn't hold my breath.

    Result :woot: Obviously we've never met in real life so we might both be total bleeps but I'll go out on a limb and say it couldn't happen to a nicer bloke.

    When I have done three like this I will go back to trying abstracted oil painting of the same subject. These will get me in the mood one hopes.

    Very sorry to hear about your daughter. I hope she's doing ok.

    Yes, she was out there on the front lines and now cramming it all in. Wants to get into cardio thoracic surgery, a tougher road to travel I can't imagine...

    Bloods after a later than normal lunch - 2 hours after - sitting at 5.7.

    It was a tin of Baxter's lobster bisque and a container of anchovies with some greens ruined by a massive blob of peanut butter in yoghurt sprinkled with raspberries.

    Tonight, it's roasted halibut with cauliflower mash and broccoli. Talking with the boss at midnight (ughhh) - alright for her, she is on the US west coast - 4pm there.

    Red eyes tomorrow morning for this getting older dude!

    What fun this T2D merry-go-round is. Felt a bit under the weather. Did a test and am back in the 3s again. Had some cheddar cheese and pecans and hopefully BS go up a bit for classes tonight.

    Thanks BRS, it will be a matter of time.

    Your daughter will be of the type who get called in to help vets with the apes.
    Heard they can sometimes operate on chimps and gorillas.
    Of course they are well out of it first! .....
    The chimps and not the doctors! :)

    good evening all :)

    5.3 this morning

    Just a quick post today, don't think my cranky old body liked the covid jab yesterday :sorry: I was fine for about 4 hours then I got a stinking headache and went off to bed early, couldn't get warm so not much sleep.

    Dosed up on paracetamol and went shopping and dropped mum's stuff off then I went back to bed for the afternoon ;) Feeling a bit better and not as achy now so hopefully back to more normal tomorrow :)

    Hope your day is treating you kindly :)

    Let us know how you're doing...Arthur the Poodle has already told me he'd like an update..

    T2D is a roller coaster...I find I do one thing and it somehow effects the diabetes or something else like sending cholesterol through the roof... The trials and tribulations.

    Oh dear.

    So not what you want to hear,
    However it should soon pass

    And at least now the upside is you'll be growing protection from the worst of covid, please god.

    What jab did you receive, @geeful.?
