ps because of what the inhalers might do, not tablets
Hi Phyllis, Spiriva rings a bell but they all have different names on paper than they do on the tin. Is it capsules that you put in a plastic container and puncture? I am on that and it's good. I am on high dosages of three kinds of inhalers and two lots of tablets for my bones because of what the tablets would do to them. Right now my oxygen level is 97 becaue I am sitting still and my oxygen machine is on. If I sit still with no oxygen on it will be about 87 and if I should venture to walk without it on it will plummet to 76. Worse when we get an electric cut and the machine goes off, I immediately go into panic mode even though I have two alternative modes of getting oxygen. My nurse says no point doing exercises now, we have passed that stage, I have severe COPD, she's a cheery little thing. Even asked me if I wanted heroic measures taken to save me if I became very ill, answer no thank you. Sorry Len wasn't so chipper this morning but that might be the way of it, just start out slow with a couple of warm drinks, once the parts are lubricated things should improve. Bless you both, and me as well lol
S'ae June, hugs accepted and returned as well. Mince, now what one can do with mince:-)) do you remember when it was the cheapest meat you could buy and now it's almost as expensive as a steak! Len had a bad start to his day, but things improved as the day wore on. He had a GOOD tea, enjoyed his dessert had a shower and now he's dreaming in the 'Land of Nod' I guess. Have you used Spiriva? I've just been approved to have it. My Oxygen Sats have gone up to 97 since starting to use it. 97 is amazing for me, and I can only put it down to the Spiriva. Well time for supper, pills, ventolin etc and bed. I know you're right re 'one day at a time', it's good for us all really. Bye for now x
Hi Phyllis, well glad to hear that Len had his treatment even if he does feel poorly, it's behind him now. I hope it will be impressed upon all of the family that he musn't be overstretched because just by being polite and joining in with their wishes he could be poorly. I'm not too bad at the moment, and that's how it goes these days, one day at a time. Just gratefull for the things I can do and turn a blind eye to the rest. Enjoy the fish, reminds me to get the mince out of the freezer. Hugs
I guess things happen today as bad if not worse June, definately different though, chemical warfare to mention just one. Anyway, lets not dwell on those ghastly things. How are you June? I am fairly chipper, Len came home today, very sore and shell-shocked after his two ops and double anaesthetic. it will take a week or more for him to feel better I think. My wretched brother invited Len to walk around the land to see what he had done. One could tell he has never been in hospital or had surgery. But all is otherwise well and we'll have fish for tea tomorrow I think:-))) Take care my friend and stay well - Phyllis
Hi Phyllis, hope I find you and yours chipper today. What a horrible thing to happen, James 11 wasn't a nice man anyway. the Covenanters suffered for many years but I think this guy was our last Catholic Monarch. Anyway she is still remembered all these years later. We are just about opposite there in Maryport
Len had someone in his family drowned in the Solway. Margaret Wilson was one of two Wigtown Martyrs. He walked down to where she had her head held underwater with a rifle butt by a man called Legg I think.
Yes to all the below and I am married to a Colonial living in the Antipodedes
Hi Phyllis, I've been through Castle Douglas, nice little town. If you went down from there to the river Solway you could wave to me on the opposite bank. So you are a Welsh lady, born in Scotland and living in New Zealand
Interesting June, I was born near Dumfries at Castle Douglas. My mother had gone from Wales to say goodbye to my father as he prepared to go to North Africa [WW2]I came early, all the stress I guess. I was visiting Dumfires in 2000, it like Scotland is a lovely country.
