Oh Margaret I am so sorry to hear of the difficut struggles you have gone through. It sounds horrid, both for you and very scary for Frank. It is understandable you feel so weak after all that. I do hope you manage to build up your strength and your breathing improves for you to have more quality of life.

Good to see you back here.

Love cx

Wow... Margaret, what a nightmare. Quite horrendous, but we are all relieved to have you back. There was a lot of concern.

Just take things very easily. One step at a time, and be very gentle with yourself.

Oh Margaret, I’m so sorry that you have been through all of this. Maybe put the osreoporosis clinic on hold until you feel up to going there and just be kind to yourself for a bit. Please tell Frank that I am thinking of both of you. I guess that he needs a bit of tlc too after such a scary time.xx

Thanks carnival I am hoping so to im waiting for physio they come twice a day at the momment i am. Sweating and shaking I am aware that last week the matron was thinking about readmitting me to hospital I do not intend to go because whenever i amadmitted I pick up a bug I think I am safer at home love Margaret xxx

Reply

I do hope you are not admitted again, it’s bad enough going through the menu twice! You look after yourself and do the physio like a good girl. I’m sure Frank is glad to have you home. Seriously though, I am so glad to have you back online, I have missed you. All love x

Hello Margaret, glad to see you are home again after your 6 weeks in hospital. Remember its much better at home when recovering. You are coming out of the tunnel for a while so enjoy the daylight , take things easy one day at a time. I am sure you will recover your strength if you take it slowly, Every best wish for a good recovery. xx

Thank you kate I. Never got to sit in the sunshine last time I was out was beginning of may ay breatheasy not sure when i will bewell enough to go out unfortunatley I seem to have lost my confidence again xxx

Reply

A fall always knocks your confidence, my fall was in June and last week was the first time out alone for me. I'm still finding it difficult not to worry about another fall when out. Should be wiser as falls can happen at home too. Take your time , I am sure you will get your confidence back soon , if we lived nearer we could hold hands together to give each other confidence. best wishes xxx

Good to hear your home Time_to _ drink, don't feel to Down hearted, that your breathing has got worse.

I've learned, that being tired or ill, greatly affects my breathing.

You've been very poorly and are bound to be weak.

You'll start feeling better and breathing better, once your strength is back.

Take good care of yourself xx

Thank you casper I go into sheer panic when my breathing is bad especially when I am in bed and wake up in a lather and unable to catch my breathe xx
