For Stormy and Misty and anybody else feeling poorly at present.

This is for Stormy and Misty both of whom recently had operations. Stormy is suffering heart problems and is at present wearing a heart monitor and undergoing further investigations. Misty is in a lot of pain as the anaesthetic has worn off and morphine is needed during the recovery period. Both miss the forum and think of us all. As both love animals here is Murray showing them what to do during their convalescence or investigations.

Take it easy and rest whenever you can, no matter whose chair it is!

With love and healing hugs to them both and to anybody else recovering from an op or illness. πŸ€—πŸ€—πŸ€—πŸ˜˜πŸ˜˜πŸ˜˜xxxx

Aww poor darlings. If it's any consolation tell them that I can understand what they are going through having had the heart πŸ’“ monitor and operations hopefully though they haven't had any infernal itching to the point of madness I'm going through. Hmmmm πŸ€”πŸ€”πŸ€”πŸ€”πŸ€” maybe I have fleas or mange?πŸ™ƒπŸ˜΅πŸ˜΅πŸ€£πŸ˜‚πŸ€£πŸ˜΅πŸ˜ŸπŸ€£πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‰. πŸ’“

So sorry to hear that Boudica. Is it confined to your skin? If so I found camomile tea with honey helped both internally and exteranally and bicarb baths helped to soothe too. I really sympathise with you because I had an extremely itchy rash from head to toe that kept me awake when I was first diagnosed with SLE. Poor you. I hope it eases soon. πŸ™πŸ» Take care. πŸ€—πŸ˜˜πŸ’•xx

Hi Spotty-ewe, yes thank goodness the itching is confined to the skin but at times I can itch like crazy in place's with no rash or a single spot. The aches and pains tend to be in the hands and feet or though I do have other places that can and do hurt but with those I can put down to the lungs, the old ticker or the Gastrisis or the diverticular.We have a wet room so can't relax in a bath with anything that may ease it and I've learnt the hard way not to scratch. At least I've got an appointment with the big wig and other's in a combined clinic in a few weeks time but at the moment not sure if they will be all dermatologist's or a mix from other department's. At least the GP is writing to Rheumatology to see what's going on there as I've not heard anything from them in over a year and that was just a video text about there criteria for who they classed should be in shielding based on drugs only. As for anything else I've not heard a peep from them for at least two years but have found out that the specialist rheumy who dealt with Lupus, Sjogren's and some of the Vasculitis diseases has move to another hospital that is out of our local health authority area and there doesn't appear to be anyone else who comes close to his expertise.

Sorry didn't mean to sound like him having a moan or feeling sorry for myself as there are people far worse off than me.

I'll just have to keep singing that song in Jungle book, the one where Baloo is rubbing his back against a tree as I wriggle my back against anything thats handy enough to reach that spot.

That’s infuriating when you have a good specialist and hey move on - probably head-hunted by another hospital. And then they aren’t replaced by somebody similar! 😣 I sympathise with your itch because I know I can cope with pain better than that constant insatiable itch! 😩 Yes, I learned not to scratch too as it seemed to make it worse but it is extremely hard not to. πŸ₯΄ I hope your medical team get to the bottom of it and discover what is causing it.πŸ™πŸ» Until then keep singing that song! πŸ€—πŸ˜˜xx

I hope they feel calmer just looking at that peaceful photo. I certainly did!

Thank you so much EJ. I’ll pass on your very kind thoughts and wishes although I think they’ll read them for themselves. Poor Stormy has had a very long time of extra issues on top of her SLE the most worrying being her heart issues. But I’m certain they’ll get to the bottom of it in time. Hoping you are keeping okay EJ? Love and hugs to you too πŸ’•πŸ€—πŸ˜˜πŸ™πŸ»xxxx

β€œMy chair! Go sit somewhere else!” Lovely Murray, chilling in the sunshine. Speedy get well wishes to Stormy and Misty, so kind of you to let us know how they are and I hope all these warm replies help them to feel a bit better 🌺❀️🌺

Yep, you’ve got him summed up! πŸ˜†πŸ˜† I’m sure all these lovely messages will cheer up Misty and Stormy and aid Misty’s recovery and help remind Stormy we are thinking of her as she recovers from her back op and waits for the results of her heart monitor. πŸ™πŸ» Hoping you are keeping better yourself these days HW? Have you had your vaccines yet? We, being old and decrepit πŸ˜‰, had our 2nd vaccine 2 weeks ago so eagerly await next week when full immunisation should be in place so we can cautiously get out and about again.🀞 Freeddom!!πŸ‘πŸ»πŸ‘πŸ» πŸ€—πŸ˜˜xx

Nothing like kind wishes and positive thoughts from afar to help with the healing process. I’m alright at the mo Spotty, got some unexplained all over body stiffness and pain, have a Rheumy appt next week & a Neuro one a few weeks after to help fathom it out, but doing usual stuff and able to keep pottering about which is good. I’ve had both jabs so feeling more confident about getting out and about now - and yesss! To new freedoms! Hope you and hubby are feeling ok after your jabs? πŸ€—πŸ˜˜πŸ€—

So sorry to hear about your inexplicable all over body pain and stiffness HW. That’s very draining and you don’t know how to combat it if you don’t know the reason for it. My Rheumy referred me for physio for a similar reason but physio told me they weren’t working at present because they are helping with the vaccine distribution. So I’ve gone private and after 2 sessions since 21st April, and 8 exercises I’ve to do daily to improve my awful balance and my general weakness, I am noticing a difference already including more stiff and sore muscles πŸ˜‚ . I hope Rheumy and Neuro find the cause of your problem and are able to remedy it. πŸ™πŸ» I also hope your 2nd jab hasn’t affected you like the first one did. 🀞 We are okay thanks HW - just severe fatigue 24 hours later for 12 hours and nothing much since. Love and hugs and wishing you all the best for your appts with Rheumy and Neuro. Let me know how you get on. πŸ’•πŸ€—πŸ˜˜ xx

Thanks Spotty for letting us know about Misty and Storm - what a beautiful pic of Murray - hoping that they make a speedy recovery , lots of love ❀️

Spot on! πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ πŸ€—xx

Thanks Spotty - yes indeed, if you don’t know what it is, how best to treat it and manage living with it? I’m now on heavy duty pain relief so that at least I can keep doing stuff that is normal for me. Not sure whether the stiffness is causing the pain or vice versa? I do Pilates stretches with deep breathing and that seems to help a bit, along with Epsom Salt baths for relaxation. Good old physio - making you feel more stiff and sore! πŸ˜‚ I suppose it’s β€œno pain no gain” in their book! This new set of symptoms came on steadily after the first vaccine at the end of January when I had that nasty reaction so I’m wondering if it’s connected to that? Well that’s something for Neuro & Rheumy to scratch their heads over...πŸ¦“πŸ¦„ Thanks for your kind wishes as ever and glad to hear you and hubby are ok after your jabs. Will keep you posted! Love and hugs πŸ€—πŸ˜˜πŸ€—

That’s no fun needing heavy duty pain relief to function normally. I find Pilates and Yoga both helpful in stretching out things but unless in a class I forget about the breathing. 🀭 I’ve got a Mindfulness meditation which is good for pain too. You basically focus on the site of the pain and reduce and even remove it. I think that’s right. It is ages since I’ve done it. But all these natural remedies and practices can help and at least do no harm. I think your stiffness and pain is likely to be connected to your vaccine because I know of another forum member who had a shocking reaction to the first vaccine including pericarditis and pancreatitis and still isn’t right yet. She’s refusing to have the second jab and I can understand why. I had blocked ears after my first vaccine and they’d only just cleared when the 2nd vaccine arrived. Now they are back again so I’m hoping with time they’ll clear again. But as you say your Neuro and Rheumy can ponder over that. Lovely to have the β€˜chat’ and yes please keep me posted. Take care HW. πŸ’•πŸ€—πŸ˜˜xx
