Well that's something to look forward to Sara. I hope you enjoy it. Good luck for tomorrow. xx

Hi Don Oh for sure I will .I was a bit worried I d be spending it on my own because of the lockdown so good job I checked the rules first- -not like the younger generation who just go out after a lockdown or anti protestors of various ages bunching up no masks & drinking too much

At least some of us are doing our bit!!!

Hi Sara. I think you meant this reply for someone else, you've acknowledged Don. Thought I'd better let you know.

Good morning Sarah, good look for tomorror, lovely your going to see parents and getting your fav meal too😋my towns known as the forgotten town and it's only in news when it's bad stuff, Except for when it with city of culture, it is a pretty town centre with good archetechture sorry on spelling lol,quaint old cobbled roads in parts too, but my god the people majority are oblivious and is worst in country and at nearly 8oo per 1oo thou cases, me and mam stay in no park even. We wave in front garden to my niece and her children it will be lockdown for us until get vaccine I think. Good job I'm living with mam made right choice in not working on job was doing as lot of schools got virus and shut. Hope you enjoy your time with parents

the PR went ok - did the excercises - my breathing was a percentage in the 90s . On the assessment the percentage was 75% -which was because I thought that because I walk fast I assumed I could do simpe excercises fast & it didnt pay off. Im rather hoping that when the hospital gives me an asessment with a view to having an oxygen tank Im going to tell them my breathing is in the 90s therefore I feel I dont need one & wont be bullied into something Im not happy with

yes -if they tell me to get on a treadmill I will refuse point blank & wont accept their bullying . I googled breathing saturation for a normally healthy person & its 96-100 & anything below indicates a lung problem (which I know I have one) - The way I m going to put it is all I know is its in the 90s & Im happy with that & feel I dont need an oxygen tank & just want to practice taking deep breaths as normal as possible

Deep breathing does help my bundles about to run out so hope to chat soon hugs from me and pixie X

I had my appointment this morning -& my breathing was in the low 90s today -all of these results through the entire rehab gets fed back to my GP who looking at the resuts -assessment -breathing at 75% & last 2 rehabs - 90,92 & 93 respectively so in the low 90s . I googled a normal healthy persons percentage breathing saturation & its 96-100 .

Because the nurse on the rehab talked with me about having an oxygen tank either on my back or wheeling it about like a suitcase when this hospital appointment comes up Im going to refuse it point blank no matter what any oxygen doctor says -because my argument will be that the way I see it -its in the 90s & therefore I see it as being ok & a whole lot better than 75%

I wont let the NHS bully me into something I dont want to do -they way they do it is well if i dont thi will ahppen & nothing will improve but I will stand my ground

Wonderful on both counts Sara_2611 and I'm sure you'll enjoy your celebration meal whichever dad cooks for you 😊🌈

oh most def callendars girl

I hope you have a great birthday!

Best Wishes,
