I wish you all a happy new year and hope you all had a good Christmas.

Sorry I've not been in but have been in hospital and i'm just starting to catch up with things.

I had a serious chest infection that affected my asthma. I went in hospital on Dec 14th and came out on Dec 21st. I was on oxygen for 5 days and found the whole experiences was really scary and I never want to go though it again. To top it all of fibro has decided to join in!

So Christmas was a very quite and new year was as well. I was even told by my 2 teenage daughters to go back to bed over Christmas (I thought I was ment to tell them lol). They were so understanding and grown up about things and didn't worry if I'd done the shopping for food and pressies. I did their present shopping in an hour and food shopping was different matter I'd missed my carer taking me shopping and couldn't get home delivery tell the Thursday so we managed with the bits I'd already got and celebrated late.

Happy New Year to you too Yvonne!

I am so sorry to hear you've been so poorly, it sounds as though you may be having a flare-up of your Fibro too as a result of this too. Make sure you get lots of rest and pace yourself, it will pass soon hopefully.

Your daughters sound absolutely wonderful, what gems they are! It sounds like under the circumstances you are all managing very well which is great.

Take care, take it easy and please know that we are here for you at all times and we will always do all we can to help and support you.
