Last news: Moving!

Dear Asthma friends,

I am going home and been in touch with the local hospital respiratory clinic. I sent my scan result there so my first appointment is on March 8th but they will admit me for 3 weeks (!) as soon as they have a bed, that could take up to 2 weeks wait. Still I feel grateful..there will be tests and physio and a referral to the Chuv in Lausanne at the rare pulmonary disease department (don't like the sound of that) so I understand that can take up to 3 months.

At least somebody is taking me seriously, scary but a big relief at the same time, first I want to know what I've got second I want a cure if there is one.

So I am leaving on Saturday. My daughter is coming up to help me pack etc..

I'll keep in touch I hope there have wifi was my first reaction, my daughter laughed coz she got me this birthday card with an hysterical woman saying "What do you mean there's no wifi???" Well that's me!!

Take care you all xxx

Wish I was moving. My buyer is keeping me waiting after accepting his offer before the new year and having my place off the market since then he now cannot make up his mind. So my dream chalet bungalow which I thought was mine may not be. The people are being very kind and keeping it for me just wish he would make up his mind one way or the other.

He is supposed to be buying my place as a buy to let which means he has to complete by the end of this month or pay an extra 3% stamp duty but he doesn't seem anxious to save this money even though it matches the shortfall in the mortgage amount he has been offered - stupid or what?

Yes the state agent put it back up on the market on Monday and they had a successful viewing this morning so are thinking that the person who viewed today may well out an offer in after the weekend. Let's hope so.
