Morning all you happy smilers


No Sokrackers I never over slept I was busy doing bits around the house honest. I am pleased to be able to say to you all that I have got a hospital appointment next month to have the tumours in my lungs zapped once again so I am rather a happy bear as it means I do not have to have chemo again, with any luck.

A silly one again a pal of mine who is only 3 foot tall went to the doctor and asked if he treated little people and if so could he register with the practice, the doctor replied "Yes I do but you will have to go on the short list".

Also I said to another friend of mine who is a bit thick that Christmas this year is on a Friday and he replied "I hope its not on the 13th". x :) Fred

Morning Fred

Great news about them soon to be blasted tumors. And no need for chemo a double bubble this morning. Speaking of double bubble we got a double dose of your humour this morning. Right that has put me in the right frame of mind to face the day.

Interview at 1100 hrs so bet get ship shape and Bristol fashion!

Double shreaded wheat this morning so they best watch out for me!

Any plans for the weekend? I fancy doing something nice this weekend any inspiration or ideas?

Morning Ruby zapping, what happens is I go into a CT scanner and whilst I am asleep the doctor puts a probe into my back then on into my lung and being able to see the tumours via the scan sends a charge down the probe and burns the little buggers, its painless and last time I was home at lunch time the next day which was enough time for me to tease the nurses. xxxFred :)

rubyred777 in reply to holly17

I never heard of that procedure. 'I bet you flirt with the nurses!

You seem to be a bit of a flirt.

Good luck Fred with the scanner another giggle at the jokes keep them coming. Struggling a bit today with a chest infection and the hip seems to be coming out in sympathy . Never mind the sun is shining and the wood burner is roaring there's always a bright side. X

Good news about having your tumours zapped instead of chemo Fred - I have had the zapping done and it's very quick, effective and pain-free so hope it does the job. 2 of my friends had to undergo chemo and neither would want to go through it again. Take care xx
