Finally he rides again

Our little mascot rides again again in the 4.30 at Musselburgh,where he won last time and over the same distance of 1mile 1 furlong .

it is good to see him ride again as it is almost 2 months since he gallantly triumphed for his dodgy lung club fans,

if one were to wager i would recommend no more than an each way bet as he is up against some reasonable competition especially a horse called Luna Magic who may well show a moonie to our gallant lad if things go wrong.

Good luck to all,i shall be busy attending the walk in centre or A&E which i have put of for some time to avoid the weekend madness but my recent swallowing difficulty has developed into a full blown throat restriction and i am unable to eat any foods even pureed for some three days now and i fear this needs somewhat urgent attention though thankfully i can still sip water to stave of dehydration and my breathing appears not to be affected.

Wish us both luck and enjoy the rest of your evening . :)

Much Love Skinny Ski's and a well fed cat xx

I don't want to see an on call trainee for an endoscopy whilst sitting amongst a load of drunken people in a crappy local hospital so my plans are to attend when decent staff are available ,it's safer jane but thanks for the concern. :) x

I understand your reasons Mike and would normally agree, but you dont know what this is and it could suddenly turn serious, you might be in the best place and you could explain that you are really poorly and be put into a side room, where at least you could lie down and rest x

Not bothered about the horse skis but I do care about you and your swallowing problems. Please get to hospital and it sounds awful to me.

Can’t have you wasting away.

Thinking of you and scruffy.

Sorry to be so ignorant Skis, would you be comfortable to tell me why you have difficulty swallowing? Do you know what they will do to help you at A and E? Thinking of you and hope your problem will be sorted.

I'll be brief but i am not in a position to write an essay,i think either i have a restriction in the upper esophagus or whats called a food bolus,i have a condition called Barrets Esophagus but that is lower down so probably not the cause,basically i need a well controlled and skillful endoscopy to check what is happening to prevent stuff apart from liquid going down. :)

Take care dear skis and get there in the morning.

Don't bother with walk in centre go straight to the hospital.

I understand your reluctance over weekend my last visit was a weekend.

Very ill taken in ambulance but then sat on a hard chair 12 hrs with pneumonia surrounded by drunks and fights the whole thing, no food and alone.

Went in in the morning not seen till night then no bed available till 1 am........nightmare. .......Was very ill by then.

Please let us know you are ok and how it goes.

Can you manage clear soup at all?

Thinking of you and worrying we all care on here about you .❤️💕X

PS. £1 each way

Kittykat,Bet placed and thank you for your concern,our walk in centre has been strapped onto A & E i believe so i shall be best going through the protocol,i hate enoscopy's but one is required now but i have retained proof from a previous endo that i am safe to mildly sedate so that should help a little but i need a skilled operative hence the slight managed delay. :) x

Dear Skis

It sounds horrendous. And you should have gone to A&E days ago. What was Scruff thinking of? Not nagging you to go? Shame on you, lazy puss.

Very anxious Kate 😟 and a frantic Zebra

It is rather annoying and but for the reasons mentioned to Kittykat above i would have gone Saturday morning as the restriction worsened.meanwhile the furry one does not give a monkeys what's it and is eating for both of us. :)

Have a good week my dear Kate and hopefully sooner rather than later you can slow down.

Sorry to read this Skis, you should have gone to Dyno-rod in order to get some food down there. I think you are wise waiting for A&E to clear of drunks and unsavoury types but hope the complaint hasn’t worsened as a result. Take care young Grasshopper and keep us informed. (About the horse)😉

I'm quite shocked to hear of your swallowing problem ski's, I had no idea you were having such difficulties. Please get yourself off to hospital tomorrow asap - I don't blame you for wanting to avoid the weekend drunks but the sooner you have an endoscope the better. They're awful I know but they don't take very long and with Barrett's you really need to know what's happening. Will be thinking of you, and of course wishing you well - please let us know how you get on as soon as you can and don't let Scruff's eat all the tuna - it might be just what you fancy once you've been fixed. Best of luck😘xx.

Thank you my dear Magpuss,i have a feeling it's nots associated with the barretts which was fairly low grade 18 months ago so i think maybe a bolus that needs dislodging or a constriction that needs dilating,hopefully something as simple as that maybe even an old toffee i can chew again lol but i am Hank Marvin as they say in the cockney world and the thought of that tuna with mayonnaise is very appealing. :)

Love ski's and a fatter cat xx

Dear ski's thanks for the tip that catch my breath rides again. Will try another modest wager again. Loved your witty remark about his rival Luna Magic having the potential ability to show him a Moonie! Think that means an ew bet is on the cards. Hope you and catch my breath have the best of luck, you need to get some experienced medical assistance by the sound of it. Hopefully you'll be feeling a lot better soon and be able to eat properly again. We can't have you wasting away, skinny ski school and Scruffs is just too much alliteration. On a serious note though I wish you the very best. Take care of yourself and let us all know how you get on x
