Its a bit cold outside but I was just itching to get out and have a bit of a walk. As Jo BLF nurse and top advisor told us, put on plenty of thin layers so three 'T' shirts a warm top, a snood, coat etc later I was ready for the off. I also wrap the oxygen pipe coming from my cylinder around my body under the coat so the oxygen supply gets pre- warmed. I was feeling pretty good so I checked my watch as I left, I do this because I have set walks that I time myself on which is a good way of checking for deterioration or improvement of your overall condition. Things went well, infact very well, I got to the highest point in the round trip where I do my time check, Wow it was a new record time! and normally at this point I am shifting mucus at a pretty alarming rate. Well apart from a bit of stitch and a thimble full of gung I was much improved. Haveing just lost 1 stone in weight I can only put this improvement down to that. All I ask now is for some decent weather to make my walks more enjoyable, I am colour blind but I can tell Blue from depressing Grey.
May the sun shine on us all and lift our spirits. Tony
