Hello Everyone

I thought it time for a fun 'cutie pic' and ive needed cheering up this week.

This great guy is from Bali and he takes six of his twenty rescue dogs on his motorbike collecting unwanted food from restaurants. Their trade has dwindled recently as Bali relies on tourism. Many, islanders regularly donate food to him which he passes on to those in need. Restores faith in human nature doesnt it?.

I hope you are all as well as possible and keeping safe in any sun we get!.


P.s, still waiting in awful pain for Gastro appt. Have just heard today that my leg injections have been delayed till july 4th!. These appointment changes are so hard for us arent they?.πŸ˜ͺ

That is a lovely pic and such a wonderful guy.

I’m so sorry that you are having gastro pain. Hopefully your appointment will come through soon. Appointments getting delayed are awful. I hope the time doesn’t pass too slowly for you.

I have an eye test on Friday. My first one since 2019! Not good when I’m on Hydroxychloroquine. Should get my eyes tested every year. I then have a face to face appointment with my rheumy on Monday. Might get some answers regarding my back.

Take care and I hope your pain eases. Xx πŸ’ ❀️

Hi ge, glad you liked the pic and thank you for your lovely wishes. Im so pleased you've finally got a rheumy appt, f2face on Monday. You've had to wait so long for it. Thats given me heart.

Good luck too for your eye test. Its a worry being on hcq that you've had to wait so long but 🀞they'll be ok.

I will look out for your post ge to see how it all went. Im willing the phone to ring so much as i did want to be seen before the bank holiday. Not sure i will be now but im πŸ™i do.

🀞it all goes well ge. Take care. Xx

Hi misty. My eye test went fine. Slight change to my prescription but it is down to age not the hydroxy. The whole process was done very well with an assistant wiping down chairs etc. after they had been used. Same with the glasses. If frames were tried on and not wanted then they were cleaned before being put back. Have to go back in two weeks to collect my new glasses. Rheumatology on Monday now. Xx πŸ‘“ 🧼 πŸ‘©πŸ»β€βš•οΈ

Thats great news ge, a big worry less for you. Its always a boost getting new glasses. 🀞for monday and you have a helpful Rheumy appt. Good luck and take care. Xx❀🀞❀🀞❀

Thankyou Misty so cute.there are such wonderful people in the world.unfortunately we don't ofter get to hear about them. There used to be a newspaper called something like good news week.full of cheerful stories like this ..really positive.Sorry your having to wait so long.my dermatology appointment has been delayed 3 times now..by the time I go my spring rash will have disappeared.!!

You take care and have a good day.thanks for sharing 🌻🌼🌸🌻

misty14 in reply to tjo52

I couldnt agree more tjo with you. We only hear about the bad!. There was a BBC newsreader Martyn Lewis ,a few years ago now ,who was an advocate of keeping the last item on the news as a positive/cheery one to end on!. That was also such a good idea.

Im very sorry your dermy appt has been postponed 3x. The'yre pushing follow ups further and further back to catch up on the backlog!. Its really tough when advice is so needed. Its also so demoralising waiting for the phone or post to come.

Keep watching the forum as im posting 'cutie pic' fortnightly to help keep our spirits going.

🀞you hear soon. Take care and keep safe. Xx

Apologies for being nosy, I am also waiting for gastro appt. What is yours for? Mine for liver function

misty14 in reply to foxglove

Hi foxglove , thanx for replying. Mine is liver function too. My Alt has been wonky for 2 years now and ive just developed an awful pain after eating on upper right side. I do hope you havent got this as well. I so need their advice as wonder if they're connected?. its awful how the waits are just getting longer. How long have you been waiting?. Do hope you hear soon. Xx

Misty, Thank you for the cheery pic. and reminding us that there are kind people out there that do not get the attention they deserve. I guess kindness, compassion and caring aren't dramatic enough for the drama seekers which is so sad. The benefits for good news is so much more important. Feeling angry for you with the constant delays. The gastro pain must not only be horrible, but frightening as well. You know that I will keep thinking good thoughts for you. I am so hoping for the day will you will have answers. Sorry about you leg injection as well. Right now, my biggest challenge is that Gigi was spayed on Monday and keeps getting the cone off. I am trying to keep her safe and calm and using all my energy. I know she doesn't understand. She is such a loving girl. At least she takes her pills well and understand how to drink water with the cone on. I can't wait until she is healed .

Love of healing hugs coming your way.

misty14 in reply to Pumpkin2009

Thank you dear pumpkin for your lovely message and support. Do hope gigi is better used to her cone now. They are tricky to navigate for patient and owner. Hopefully not too long and it can come off. How did your immunology appt go?. Think it was them or rheumy?. Do hope it was helpful for you.

Im getting help with buscopan and my gp finally agreed to email the gastros to see me. Hopefully i will get something. I ring weekly and i just hope they're not away for half term. 🀞.

Thank you for your unwavering support. I really appreciate it and next 'cutie pic' hopefully will have better news.

Enjoy the jubilee celebrations and take care. Xx🐢❀🐢🀞🐢❀🐢🀞🐢❀🐢🀞

Fabulous photo . It warms your heart to know that there are people like him in this world. I am so very sorry about your wait for the Gastro appointment and the delay in your leg injections. There is always something with us isn’t there ? I hope they sort your appointment out soon loveky. Big Cwtches and lots of love xxx

Thanx so much cecily for your lovely good wishes. I didnt think you'd be able to cope with this week's doggie pic losing Brodie. Dylan must be missing his mate so much too.

Any news of your MRi yet?. Ive finally today convinced my gp to chase gastros up with an email to hopefully get me seen. Its such a battle and so much harder when we're suffering. Its got me down lately that there's been no let up. This lovely forum is helping me keep going.

Have a lovely weekend cecily and take care. Xx

I always love dogs photos, I am surrounded by photos of Brodie. It is a comfort. No no news on the MRI yet. It is hard going with pulmonary rehab with my knees and hamstring issues but I am trying hard, hopefully it will help. I am currently despairing because my new dentist , at a practice I have used for 12 years told me I can no longer have work done there as I am too obese for the chairs. I have now had to be referred for a bariatric chair( up to 72 stones) for my dental work. I was mortified and so upset. I have never ever had a problem with the chairs. So I have to suffer with my temporary fix and no one can tell me where I have to go or when I will be seen. It is so demoralising. I really hope your GP’s email gets a swift response Misty πŸ€žπŸ»πŸ™πŸ» Xxx

That is so awful cecily, im really sorry at your dentist's change of attitude.why suddenly say it as he's been treating you?.

Well done with the pulmonary rehab. You know, whatever you can do ,like with your walking ,can only be better than doing nothing and benefit your body. Ive learnt this from different health professionals.

Thank you for your lovely wishes re an appt. I only hope they're not away for half term when i ring on monday. 🀞 take care Xx❀🐢❀🀞❀🐢❀

New dentist. Every other dentist has had no issues treating me. Same practice, same beds so it was such a huge shock. I know I am obese but I have never had a problem previously and it made me feel worthless. Fingers crossed for you on Monday lovely. XX

It must have been cecily, such a horrid way to treat you out of the blue. I hope you hear soon about how your tooth will be treated!. Thanx for your lovely wishes for monday. 🀞i get something. Xx🐢❀🐢🀞❀🐢❀🀞

Thank you. I really hope you get some joy xxx

Thank you cecily. Xx🐢❀🐢

What a great picture and what a great guy.πŸ‘πŸ»πŸ‘πŸ» The doggies all look as though they are having the best of fun and so lucky to have been rescued by such a caring man. πŸ₯° So sorry to hear you are still in so much pain Misty. That is dreadful and the delay in your leg injection is cruel. 😩 When you are counting the days for your injection, to put it back is so hard. But big-hearted as you are you still think of the rest of us and post a lovely picture to lift our spirits. πŸ˜ƒ Thank you Misty. I’m praying that you are given a gastro appt very soon.πŸ™πŸ» Take care. Thinking of you. Hugs πŸ€—πŸ˜˜xxxx

Thank you spotty for your lovely message. I really do appreciate it. I must admit my leg injections being delayed is what i really didnt need! But somehow we find the strength to keep going and posting on this wonderful forum is the best distraction i could have. I had a better day yesterday so that helps me keep going. Oh boy, its making up for it today and i just don't know why!!.

Im ringing the gastro secretary weekly to find out whats happening. Surely i will get an appt soon. 🀞

Do hope you've both enjoyed the rest of your time away. Have a lovely weekend. XxπŸ•β€πŸ•πŸ€žπŸ•β€πŸ•πŸ€žβ€πŸ•β€πŸ€žβ€πŸ•

Pleased to hear you had a little respite yesterday but so sorry to hear it is back with a vengeance today!😩 I’m so sorry Misty and wish I could suggest something to ease the pain for you. I can only commiserate and pray you have a good weekend and the news of an appt very soon.πŸ™πŸ» Good idea to keep phoning gastro weekly. πŸ‘πŸ»πŸ‘πŸ»We had a wonderful time away for hubby’s 70th thanks Misty and enjoyed meandering our way home again exploring a few of the places en-route and of course sampling their fresh baking.πŸ˜‹ It would have been rude not to! 🀣 Thank you for all your kind wishes Misty.πŸ₯° I’ll be in touch very soon. Hugs and wishes for an appt being offered very soon.πŸ™πŸ™πŸ€—πŸ˜˜xxxx

misty14 in reply to Spotty-ewe

Thanx so much dear Spotty. Ive actually managed to persuade my gp to email the gastros on my behalf and say i need to be seen. He was surprised too that ive not managed to get an earlier appt so was willing to do it!. So, hopefully i might get an appt somehow. 🀞for Monday when we phone.

Im so glad you've had a lovely time away pottering. So good for the spirits.

Thank you for all your support and lovely messages. Ill let u know how monday goes. Keep safe. XxπŸ•β€πŸ•

My hip injection has started to work , I need to concentrate on strengthening that leg as its alot weaker than the other.

We binge watched a really good series on Netflix .The Anatomy of a Scandal, would recommend it πŸ‘

Thanx weathervane for your lovely message. Im so pleased your hip injection is working. That took a long time to 'cook'!. Good luck with strengthening that leg, just enough to benefit but not overdoing it as we need the relief to last don't we?. My foot one is still good luckily.

Ive finally convinced my gp of the help he could be in emailing gastros for me. He said he would yesterday b4 going on holiday . Thats been such a battle!. He was genuinely surprised id not heard anything.

Im getting help from buscopan and eating less and differently and hoping i hear something soon. Im ringing them weekly, its got to happen although im worried they're away for half term now!. I wouldnt wish this struggle on anyone to be honest.

Its great the jubilee celebrations are a lovely distraction. Hope you have the sun like we do. 🌞

TAKE CARE and keep safe. Xx🌞❀🀞🌞

πŸ™πŸΌπŸ™πŸΌπŸ™πŸΌπŸ™πŸΌπŸ™πŸΌ I hope you hear so and your gp has the magic touch 🀞🏻 . I take colofac for IBS it is working for me at moment, use to get pepper oul on prescription but changed to this and works better. Hope you get seen soon z as nd get diagnosed xxxxπŸ«ΆπŸ»πŸ’•πŸ’•πŸ€—πŸ€—
