Thank you to everyone

Thanks for your mention Ruby - Im so thrilled to be posting again. Meaning to answer all the lovely messages in earlier posts but please forgive if i don't get round to it. Energy still big problem so just please know how much each and every message meant to me.

I managed to climb the stairs tonight with just one rest. Could only do three steps before needing rest last night - 7 steps tonight, how's that for progress, so hoping for speedy recovery.

Lets remember how many others are not around and struggling with flare-ups, and various other connected stuff. What a wonderful site this is. xxxxx jean

Hi O2 I am glad you are starting to feel better but don't overdo it will you otherwise you might set yourself back. The only good thing about being ill is the wonderful feeling when you start to recover! Take care and look after yourself. x

Im so manic and euphoric on the steroids Cough, that's good advice. Hope you're ok xx :)

Oh the wonderful steroid high :) Oh I am one happy bunny coz went to bingo yesterday on a free ticket and won £100! I nearly died from shock... It will pay for my cat to have his thingies cut off and to get my corns taken out. Lets hope me and the cat end up in the right places :d xx

Well you wouldn't want kitty to lose his corns would you . . . . ? :D

One step at a time and you'll get there, Prompt recovery. Mic

Hey Mic, good to hear from you. How's the gym?

O2Trees, I battle on, even as I had a chill on the evening coming back to see Swan Lake at the Marlowe. So wonderful, but the chill lasted in me for a few days and i jumped on my ABs. A week of it has put me back to normal and Gym is seeing me 3 times a week , lucky fellow! My flute sees me and I "kiss" it every day. I don't know why it screams everytime!

I'm so glad you feel better. Take it gently. One exercise only at a time to be able to build yourself up. Only one breathing with with arms shoulder high pushing them back anf breathe in, and pushing forward breathing out, that's all, no more!

Three times week at the gym Mic, you're such a star. Glad you're over that chill, Swan Lake must have been lovely -envy, envy ;)

You're right about taking it gently. I thought i was doing ok then Farmer D warned me about not having muscle tone; then today a friend who does lymphatic drainage visited and got the swelling down on my legs and feet, and I've realised that the oedema was itself acting as a kind of scaffolding for my legs and now its gone they look so puny and sad and ironically feel weaker.

So baby steps as they say.

When I'm better i'll meet you for coffee after one of your gym sessions :) :)

When I started the gym all these years ago, I only went on the treadmill for 2 minutes at an agonising slow pace. I was out of breathh. But I went back again and slowly, very slowly built my tone indeed, and my breathing got better. Take courage. It's worth it :-) Mic

I know Mic, Ive been there, figuratively, not to that actual gym. Just shocking how quickly you can lose it despite being pretty fit beforehand. :O

Jean, I hope you can find something to pick yourself up a bit, Mic

Well i can climb the stairs now though exhausting Mic. So that's progress, can soon ask the med team to repossess the commode ;)

Had haircut today from my lovely hairdresser who came round the house; feels a bit more normal.

Friends loyal as ever - my cranial sacral therapist friend coming tomorrow to do some lymphatic drainage on my swollen feet, which are a bit better.

Appetite huge. So all going in right direction, just at a snail's pace, I'm not used to this :D

Thanks for your post Mic, and hope you're flute is going well :)

keep to the snail pace! Tell you what the haridresser was the best move. di dhe let you have a look at the result?


Are you crazy Mic? ;) No offence but I'd never get a cut without seeing it as it progressed.

Im pleased with it, its very short, how i used to have it but not for a while. It makes me feel so young . . . :D
