just spoke to huggs now

i have just this minute spoken to huggs, [8,15pm ] it was so great to hear her cheeky laugh, she sounded much better, spoke much clearer, and was telling me to give her regards and to thank to everyone on h,u .

for their kind messages.

she is walking now [with a little help ] talking clearer, and was telling me she hopes to be transferred, maybe? in the next fortnight, back to the small cottage hospital on the island, but that remains to be seen.

theres still a lot she doesn't remember, which is understandable.

she said that she did in fact take two strokes.

She remembered Sara this time, [when i mentioned butterfly ] :) and many other names , [ Rib :D ]

She knew i was in hospital. asked how i was , as i was wheezing, she said "they've never did a very good job on you " [laughing ] in her usual cheeky good humoured manner.

She said it was great to hear from me as she had been worrying over me, ,,,,and to phone the doctor if that wheeze gets worse !! :)

I told her i had just been wakened by my carer,[i fell asleep on the chair ] and i wasn't quite with it yet!!, she said "did you tell her that's normal for you " laughing,!! ,,,cheeky so an so :D ,

,It really was so great to hear her laugh. It uplifted me no end. :)

although we had a good chat, she does tire quickly,

she gave me permission to post this,

Best wishes to Hugs and Jimmy.

  • Mooskie, you are one of us now! xx

  • Thank you Sheila...

  • Hello Mooskie

    No matter where you are in the world, we are all connected with the fantastic internet......you could be living at the end of my road unless l read your profile.

    You are part of this forum, a wonderful group of people trying to help and support each other.

    We will be there for you.

    I spent a month in Calgary in the 70's...went to the Calgary Stampede, and Rockies... What a fantastic Country you have.


    Velvet xx

  • Well said Velvet. I think you speak for most of us.

    I would add that it takes some of us longer than others to have a real sense of belonging, but the loving support, help ,advise etc is there for all of us & it's unconditional. So keep posting. Nan

  • Hi velvet...thanks for your message...Calgary has changed a lot since the 70's....now 1.2 million people! And quite cosmopolitan. I read this site daily and feel like I am really getting to know several of you even though I haven't met you!

  • Hi Mooskie.....

    Calgary sounds great, l would love to return, but l don't think my lungs would enjoy the long haul flight any more....l remember horse riding high up in the Rockies, the weather was in the 80's but there was still snow on the ground !!

    Most of us have never met, but the beauty of this forum is it's diversity of topics posted...something for us all....and 24 hour help and support if you need it.

    Keep posting and we will all get to know you.

    Best wishes

    Velvet xx

  • Mooskie it dosnt matter where you live.

    I have spoken to huggs almost every day ive been a member on here either on the forum or by email or on the phone ...many of us love her yet have never met....distance means nothing x

  • Hi Mooskie,

    Can i just add , off course your as important on this forum as anyone, :) in fact one of huggs,s forum pals is in Australia!!, many are from other parts of the world.[it just so happens that we are both scottish, although we still live a few hundred miles apart ] The forum is made up of all creeds, religions, intelligent folks, un-intelligent folks :) [i'm afraid i come under the latter :) ] in fact the" long and the short and the

    tall :) " a mixture of all types,,, but all with a great sense of caring and kindness, often quite hard to find nowadays,,,,, so Mooskie,,,, your one of us :D

    many thanks for your kind remarks, and may you continue to enjoy the forum, i hope to see you posting soon,

    kindest regards my friend Mooskie,

    may you keep well

    jimmy :)

  • That is good to hear. If she is being cheeky she must be feeling better. You know they often say you never have one stroke, they never come alone. My Aunt quite often would wake feeling and acting slightly strange and would then within the next few days have another stroke. She had lots of TIA's as they call them or Transient ischemic Attacks and a couple of big strokes but survived pretty well. Always good at regaining speech and movement, memory was a bit iffy but then so is mine at times.

    So glad that both of you are on the mend.

    Please give Huggs our best wishes.

    You take good care of yourself too. Don't over do things and if that wheeze worsens get to your Doc immediately.



  • Hi Jimmy

    Wonderful news that Huggs is making progress with her recovery....

    Huggs sounds as if she has got her sense of humour and positive outlook back, which will help her recovery immensely.

    Please pass on love and hugs from me xx

    Now then Jimmy Lad....

    are you looking after yourself, and taking things easy while you get your strength back !!!!!!!!

    I will nag you if don't !!!!!

    Lots of love

    It's so good to see you posting and I'm so glad you got through to Huggs and that she was so cheerful. I can just hear you two together! She sure is well on the mend. We are so lucky to have her. (We need you both!)

  • Many thanks for all your kind comments both on myself , but mainly on huggs.

    Huggs seems to have good days and sometimes "not so good days" but the main thing is she is progressing, so lets hope this continues.

    i didn't phone tonight as she is getting phone calls , and does tires easy.

    I'm doing ok, was taken out for a haircut today,as all i needed was a red coat and beard then i would have been like santa claus :D

    ,,,I even had my carer clip my nails [I was more like santa "claws " there!! :D ;

    Its amazing how things grow quickly [apart from bacteria :D ] when in hospital,

    and-,,,, don't even ask :) managed to "klonk" the back of my head with a portable oxygen cannister , but suffered no brain damage :D , but all was really hard going and tiring.

    many thanks to all

    lots of love jimmy . xxx
