What Grandchildren can do for PMR/GCA


1 extra mg. of Pred, 2 paracetamol and I ice skated for an hour with my 6 year old Granddaughter. I thought I would be fit for nothing this morning but no pain and minimal stiffness. In 2019 I must take up more challenges and have more fun. See if that helps get me off the Pred

That is definitely what they are for! I am like a puppet with her strings cut, now mine have gone back across the world!


Good for you ❄️

Good for you!! Never been able to skate, even as a youngster gravity always beat me haha. Great news too that you didn't pay the price next day either.

Holly I could roller skate like a pro as a kid. Sadly that didn’t carry over to the ice rink 🤣🤣🤣🤣

My memory of ice-skating is a painful one. I fell, and before I could get up, someone skated over my fingers!!!!!!!!!!!!!! B****Y SORE!! NEVER TRIED AGAIN. Your granddaughter must've been chuffed to have her Grandma skate with her! Good on you.

Oh my gosh karools you could have lost a finger!! How agonising that must have been. No wonder it put you off xxx.

So glad you had fun. Happy!!!

Wow that's amazing, how wonderful, hope it was taped. They are such precious moments and only grandparents realise this!

Don't overdo it though.

Take care.

Wonderful- good memories and good result !

I was like you into everything with the grandchildren enjoying life hope to get back to a faction of what I was would be good in Thailand everyone would come and say how fit I was 🙏🏽🙏🏽🙏🏽🙏🏽🙏🏽🙏🏽 Wish I could get back just a tiny bit energy and stamina 🤞🏼🤞🏼🤞🏼🤞🏼🤞🏼
