wee jovial jock,,,jimmy

just a quick post let you know i'm out of hospital now, i escaped yesterday evening. :)

Although i am still very tired, worn out etc. and with so many things to catch up on,its not really helping things, but i'm ok and will "get there"

I would like to thank butter-fly , velvet, and indeed each and every one of you who had posted.showing great kindness and compassion. far too many names to mention now.

i shall thank each one, when i feel more" up to it" in person. you have all been so kind and caring. quite unbelievable really. and off course so much appreciated.

Off course we are all still concerned about poor huggs, although she is still poorly, she is making good progress, the last time i spoke to her, i had a good 5 minutes or so on the phone, previous to this it was about a minute!!

Unfortunately this was just before i was taken into hospital myself. so i wasn't at my best at all, off course i didn't mention this to huggs.

But she told me that she was making good progress, moving her arms and body now, and bearing her own weight i,e standing herself, talking a lot better, but tiring quickly. she had given me permission to post that [in her words ] she had taken two strokes., this was the first i had heard of this, [i knew there were possible mini-strokes a while prior to this ]

off course i couldn't post this at the time, as i was then taken into hospital myself,

i only have a desk top computer, in a small box room, so whilst in hospital couldn't get in touch with anyone.

But i did manage to send her a card, mentioning that the many, many, members of H. U , were asking of her and wishing her well. and hope she would be able to see these posts asap.

So for the moment, i'm taking things easy, and will gradually catch up on things on the forum

once again, a great big thanks to all,

lots of love jimmy. xxx :)

    next time i get to speak to huggs i shall ask her if shes got the cards, i'm not even sure if shes got mine, although she is a little better, shes still very tired when i speak to her, so i try not to "push" her too much, but hopefully if she keeps improving, i might be able to speak and ask a little more.

    many thanks for your kind post, take care now

    i must say i do feel for huggs, but knowing her, shell carry on improving.

    i shall be so glad when the day comes,when we see her posting.

    im quite sure you understand how things are at the moment, once again a big thanks jimmy

  • Oh Jimmy, so happy that you are out of hospital. Things usually get better when out of hospital environment. You have been missed greatly. Give Huggs my love and best wishes. You are both such a huge part of this site. Take great care of yourself.

  • yes juney, very happy i'm at least home, this is me after about 2 hours sleep, waking up wheezing and breathless, you'd think i would have been a wee bit better just coming out of hospital, but maybe just the upset of getting used to a normal sleep, anyway just did my rescue inhaler and neb, still on antibiotics steroids, so now made myself a cuppa, feel better now.

    but as you say, at least in your own house you can do this, sorry for the moan :)

    will relay all messages to huggs, she is having a rough time,shes been in hospital a while now, i do worry about her as do all the members, lets hope she maintains this improvement,

  • Well, that's a relief - one down, one to go, just Huggs to make the Great Escape now! So glad you're back wee laddie, you can see from the posts how we miss you; don't be trying to answer us all - we know you love us as well but our pleas to take it easy always fall on deaf ears; if you get taken in again they'll probably start charging you rent, so be good and stay out of there.

    always smile at your posts, :) but many thanks for your kind remarks,

    i think me and huggs will make a new film "the great escape 2 " :D
