Hello everyone

Just thought id post these beautiful barn owl chicks who were peering out at their new world at a birds of prey centre in Yorkshire.

I hope you all agree what cute balls of fluff they are.

Hope your all keeping as well and as safe as possible in these challenging times.


P.s. i had my ultrasound test yesterday for foot and possible gallstones. Luckily i don't have gallstones but do have a mortons neuroma( trapped nerve) in foot after my foot op. The test has aggravated it a bit so i hope it will settle. Ive had such a good result from the steroid injection. Will hear from my gastro now about the liver tests and digestive symptoms so will keep you updated. Thanx so much for all your support. X

Beautiful little balls of fluff! Like wee cotton wool balls with eyes!

It is good that you don’t have gallstones. So sorry you have a trapped nerve in your foot though. Hope you hear from your Gastro soon.

We are all fine here. School holidays have started. I had my 4th covid vaccine last Friday. Pfizer again. I had no side effects other than a sore arm which only lasted two days. Got a letter yesterday with an appointment for a pneumococcal vaccine. Since the Behçet’s diagnosis I have been classed as immune compromised. Not immune suppressed as I am not on immune suppressants.

Hope you have a lovely week. Xx 🦉🦉

Lovely hearing from you ge and so pleased you've had your 4th vaccination. Well done for coping with it fine. Its great your Behcet's diagnosis is leading to better recognition and help. So important to have the pneumonia jab as well. Its so vital for us to have answers about our health.

Thanx for your lovely wishes and so glad you liked my balls of fluff. I hoped you might.

Ive learnt today ive got biliary colic which is gallbladder irritation and is very painful. It does come and go luckily but i do need gastro advice so hoping to hear soon.

Wonderful your all well ge and take care in the school hols. Keep safe. Xx🦉💕🦉

Such cute little owls and already look so wise. Sorry it has taken me so long to reply. How are you doing? Is there anything to help you with the bilary colic? Hope you get some relief soon. I can imagine how run down you must feel with that kinc of pain. I have had kind of a set back with intestinal issues after thinking that doing what the immunologist was at first helping. I am going to reach out to him. He said if I showed a response that it would be a good indication mast cell activation is involved. At first I did, now, not so I don't know if it was some kind of weird coincidence at first or what. Kind of feeling down about all of it at the moment. I was trying to be cautiously optimistic, but realize that I started to think there was a light at the end of the tunnel. I should realize that there are no easy fixes. Sorry for rambling. How today isn't too bad for you. I always keep you in my thoughts.

Healing hugs.

Thank you for your lovely message dear Pumpkin. Im sorry your suffering a setback but in some ways its good you've had this reaction as it could lead to better treatment. 🤞for when you contact the immunologist. Having a cause is so important as it can lead to answers/ treatment so be glad dear friend.Its not nice having intestinal issues this weather so i hope you are drinking lots and resting as much as you can.

Thank you so much for thinking about me. I don't know whats triggered this latest bout and i must admit the pain was getting me down this am. If you know a trigger you can avoid it and hopefully keep well. Im going to ring my gastros secretary if i don't hear on thursday but i suspect he's on hols. You might find the same so ill be thinking of you contacting yours.

Glad you liked the owls, hopefully by my next one we will both have some news. Take xtra care in the heat and sending healing hugs to you. Xx🦉💕🦉💞
