Hello EveryoneJust had to show you this little 'cutie', a harvest mouse clinging to a daffodil in North Yorkshire. Adults can weigh less than 10 grams!.
Hope we see more Signs of Spring over Easter. Our dwarf tulips are almost out, lovely fiery red!. Shame weather has changed to wet and grey.
Hope you all have as painfree and happy easter as you can.
P s, ive finally had a breakthru with this awful biliary pain. My Pain Consultant forwarded my letter to the Upper Gastro Consultant whose put me on list for a special liver MRI. Luckily waiting list is only 4-5 weeks and then he will see me adterwards!. What a long battle this has been.
Seeing my Pain Consultant yesterday for my leg injections, she said us patients with nerve pain can still be prescribed lidocaine patches. Gp's have been wrongly using them which is why CCG's have clamped down as they're expensive!!. Hope thats helpful for you too.
Thanx for helping me thru all this with your support. Xx
Absolutely gorgeous little mouse. Thank you for sharing. Great news about the lidocaine patches for you. Hopefully now things will start to get better for you at long last. Well done for having the courage and tenacity to not accept things xxx
Thank you so much cecily for your lovely , touching mesdage. I do so appreciate it and i'm so pleased you liked the little mouse. I guess , as you know sadly only too well, that its been the level of the pain that has made me try to be innovative to get the help i need more quickly. If i've inspired one person on here to try to do the same and they're successful then its not wasted and i'm pleased to have made a difference.
I hope your muscle weakness feeling is better this week. Mine gets better during the morning as my steroid dose kicks in!!. If it hasnt cecily you must mention it at your next appt as it is tough to live with.
Hope your still going to pottery and enjoying it.
Take care and hope Findlay is still entertaining you but settling down more as he's older now. Xx🐭💕🐶
you are a true warrior Misty. I am suffering yet another UTI and my legs are still wobbly but I find doctors only listen to one thing at a time so it will keep. Finlay went out with his group dog walker this morning. I was a little apprehensive but he absolutely had a ball. He came home soaking and muddy, ate his breakfast and crashed out. I have just got back from pottery and had a lovely welcome home. He is the most loving little boy xxx
So sorry cecily that you have another UTI but were a warrior yourself going to Pottery. Hope you enjoyed it. Wonderful that Finlay went out with his group dog walker and loved it. I can understand you being 'worried mum' so it must have been lovely knowing what a great time he'd had. Its just like talking about kids isnt it?. Do hope your better soon lovely. Xx
Thank you Misty, it took my mind off the burning and back pain to be honest. Sadly my new GP will not prescribe Nitrofyntoin just Trimethoprim l I think my symptoms are a sign that the original UTI three weeks ago was not cleared. What can you do when they just don’t listen? Xxx
Why won't they prescribe the more effective one?. Cecily. Is it cost or is it just that they don't listen?. So very frustrating as it only prolongs your suffering. Do you also drink cranberry juice as a prevention or take cranberry tablets,?. Xx
I think they just won’t listen. At one time I was on low dose Trimethoprim for two years solid but still had UTI’s. My Urologist accepted that it was not working and that the only antibiotic that helped was Nitrofyntoin. My old surgery knew that the new one will not listen. If I am still suffering next week I will call the Urologist for help. It is just frustrating though to keep going through this blanket approach. We are not all the same . I take triple strength cranberry tablets dailyxxx
Its just so awful cecily and mentally draining when we have to keep telling doctor's what we need and why. 🤞you don't have to contact Urology next week specially as its Easter Break. I'm sorry you suffer so badly with UTI's. If only i had a 🪄. TAKE CARE lovely. Xx🤞💐🦋
Yes it is Misty. She finally gave me five Trimethoprim?? That’s 21/2 days only what the hell was she thinking? I feel worn down by it now to be honest. Thank you for your kindness, it is so very much appreciated xxx
I know exactly what its like cecily, i'm always either ill or have a drug supply problem at these Holiday Times. Its a nightmare and we've got 3 Bank Hols in May!. I do hope you get enough Trimethoprim prescribed. I don't know where people leave their brains sometimes and it is so very wearing. I'm trying to get pain patches prescribed in time. Hope we bring each other luck. 🤞
TAKE CARE. Xx🐭💕🤞💐🌺🐭💕
Thank you and good luck to you too Misty.Have you seen the video of Finlay’s run I posted on Facebook? We are so proud of him ❤️🐾🐾 xxx
