Hi everyone, not been on here for a couple of weeks or so as still having a lot of trouble with my shoulder. Have been lying awake at nights and seem to wake up at 1.10, 3 a.m. 6.20 a.m. and have difficulty getting back to sleep. Have tried sleeping propped up - not good. Just slide down the bed! And our bed is one that you can raise the head and foot. Shoulder is freezing up at night and extremely painful during the day. Seeing GP tomorrow afternoon so hoping he will at long last, give me a steroid injection as I am fed up with this.
Right Hand started this morning - very stiff and painful and swollen so think it is all part of the shoulder problems., And yet my ESR and CRP have not gone up. Living on Nurofen, diclofenac and Paracetemol. (which doesn't touch it at all although the Nurofen does ease it a bit.
Just cheered myself up by booking 12 days in Cyprus later in the year so at least will get some sunshine. Bitterly cold here again and another heavy frost last night with the temperature plunging. 6 inches of snow on Sunday when we woke up. Berry was hilarious - kept doing dummy runs at the back door and then chickening out from going outside - eventually plucked up courage, dashed out into the garden and dashed straight back in again!
Then got his courage up again and did go out and spent ages charging around the garden, eating the snow, throwing it into the air and generally behaving like a loon. Himself took him through the woods on Sunday afternoon and let him have a run - same thing - charging through the snow and thoroughly enjoying himself. Berry now can't wait to get out into it although we have had a bit of a thaw and there is now a lot of ice as well.
did sprinkle dishwasher salt on the path outside the door which has got rid of the snow and ice just outside the back door.
Tilly is much more sedate but loves the snow and couldn't wait to get out there although after her night time walk, she is very glad to get home again.
We have also booked 5 days in N. Ireland in the summer and hope to meet up with friends there and a week at Cowes in August for the sailing. So something nice to look forward to even with all the doom and gloom about.
Anyway, will stop now as shoulder hurting again and I need some lunch!
