Is 2013 any better?

November 2911 saw me in hospital with a broken hip. Here I stayed after a spell in ICU for 7 weeks This took me well into 2012, Chritmas came and went. When I came home I had to learn how to shuffle again, no mean feat!!11 I thought I Iwas doing alright whren I collapsed and had another spell in ICU followed by a further 3 weeks in hospital. Then to cap it all I caught a urinary tract infection and have spent 7 werks in a nursing hoime. again Christmas came and went.

Well into 2013 I am at home I now have a further urinary tract infection and a posoined toe. 2013 looks as though it will be as horrible as 2012.!!!1

Hopefully normal service be resumed shortly.

Take care

Hi Fifa

Really sorry to hear you have had a rough time-----YES it will get better because Spring

is round the corner and then summer (maybe!!!)

Ataxia is a real b---- but so are many other illnesses and when all these other illnesses

are with children it makes you feel just a bit thankful

Much Love Ted


Look on the suntan side of the street

It's unlikely to be any worse!



Good heavens, you've really been through the wringer! 2013 HAS to be better for you! One of my favorite sayings is, "a woman is like a tea bag, as you never know how strong she can be until she gets into hot water...,ha! Keep positive Fifa, as I hope things get better for you!



Had several UTIs so I know how painful they can be.Glad you are back.


Keep strong Fifa! We're all thinking of you and wishing you the best!

Go steady and keep us posted on progress.
