So glad you're back home again Lilly. Good to see you back on the forum too. One of these days you will outrun Mr Aerospace.

So happy that you are back home with 'Mr A' and all the animals - they are still the best medicine yet ! We have all missed you on the forum - it has been too quiet, so even if it is just for short visits - still great to have you back !

Janet...

 

Welcome home! Take it slow and easy and let your body heal. It takes longer as we 'mature', so be patient and let Mr. A's legs do most of the work... for now.

I have just, slowly, read through all the messages. Gosh but this forum family is the best and must surely set all records for caring about one of its members! How can I ever hope to repay all the goodness, kindness and sincere caring that you have all sent my way?

 

I am going to our local GP to, hopefully, have some stitches removed from my knee this afternoon. Anyone tried turning over in bed at night with 31 stitches in their knee, albeit covered by a gauze dressing? It's not particularly fun and then once I am awake I don't manage to get back to sleep again. Sometimes I look at my BB and wonder who of my friends might still be awake at such ungodly hours!

 

Love and hugs to each one of you.

Not all is doom and gloom - perhaps the negative first quarter of 2013 is changing for us ...

 

Mr Aerospace received a telephone call from our local Pick n Pay who run a monthly competition for the locals. Make a purchase for over R30 and put your slip in a box and stand to be in the draw on the last day of each month. Mr A has won a flatscreen TV set!

So pleased that you are home and more or less in one piece... Brilliant news about Mr A's prize - think positive, feel positive, attract positive! Get that negative right out the door - he ain't welcome no more!

Hi Janet - good to see you back on the Forum. Sorry, I haven't been on the Forum myself for ages and hadn't realised all the problems you have been experiencing after your first operation... Good to hear you are hopefully now on the mend - and I pray it will get easier each day!

I have been lucky enough to sell my property, (after nearly 2 years of trying), and am now planning a move to PE - so who knows I may yet get to meet you and Mr "A" one of these days... Take care of yourself. Love, Wendy xxx

Congrats on selling your property. And good luck with your move to PE - but, for heaven's sake, Grahamstown is a much nicer place. (Trust me!) And of course we must meet up when you feel ready for it. Thanks so much for all the kind wishes.

Thanks for the field of flowers, Pam! All flowers are welcome in my life.

 

This morning I am going to have the balance of stitches in my knee removed and find out the results of liver enzyme tests done on Friday. Still on the potent antibiotics which now have me using my own unique pets anti-itch lotion. It helps to a degree but, then, I haven't had any flea treatments! LOL

 

The torn muscles and tendons in my thigh are another story - they mean I cannot get around anywhere without a zimmer frame for at least the next three months. Painful the injuries are, yes, but hey I am still breathing so that's what counts!

Keep takin' it easy. The hardest 'job' you should be doing is changin' the batteries in the remote control.

Thanks, Ruthie. Now the new TV has to be installed ... and hopefully the batteries won't run out of power for a while!!

 

An update regarding the potent antibiotics is that I have permanent nausea and almost as permanent upset tummies. Another two weeks to go but as I said to the specialist yesterday - I think my poor ol' body is going to be killed off before the hospital superbug is! (I was nearly rushed back to hospital last night to be put onto drips again, but I refused to go!)

Don't mess around with hospital superbugs - they'll sneak up on you and nail you to the floor before you even realise it! Many moons ago I ended up in the emergency dept on drips due to a bug I'd picked up in hospital when I'd initially been admitted for severe flu, bronchitis, etc - it was not funny! Listen to your body (and sometimes the doc) - don't ignore it.

 

I know "that" antibiotic - really makes you feel yucky but I guess it is for the best in the long run.

Lily, Please take if from your forumer friend, Antibiotics are nasty, and make you feel sick! look into adding probiotics (found at dischem) to your daily routine,by all means do your research, and try to stay away from the hospital, they say the longer you stay in hospital the less chance you have getting out!:wub:JB

Hi folks - just an update from a really "energyless" bunny.

 

After almost 5 weeks on the potent antibiotics (yes, I was and still am taking pro-biotics daily!), I decided enough was enough and have stopped all the "poisons" since Friday morning. I have had the most weird feelings of nerves springing back into action (quite painful "burning" sensations in joints) since then but this morning I am feeling much, much more human. Am even looking forward to a warm day of 27 deg forecast here which should make me feel a whole lot better.

 

I just have to learn to be patient while the torn muscles and tendons in my thigh heal - which I believe will take 3 to 6 months.

 

What is hilarious (from my perspective at present) is that I now need to get my driver's licence renewed. I shall have to do that, using my "walker".

Then, as I won't be able to drive for another 3 to 6 months, it has been suggested that we get a "disabled" sticker for my car so that we are able to (hopefully) park closer to everything.

 

MrA wanted to get the disabled sticker a couple of weeks ago. I suggested that he rather wait until I have renewed my driver's licence or else I might have to be retested for the driver's licence. This is what has us both chuckling.

 

I am so glad I don't live in one of the bigger cities where I would possibly have to be in a queue to get served at the traffic department. Here we can "plan" to go in when they are reasonably quiet.

Good to hear you slowing feeling better ! Hope you will be able to find a nice warm spot on the stoep, get a good book and relax ! The warm rays will energize you a little. Time to pretend to be a cat. Sleep, rest, yawn, stretch, have a nibble when you wish and be lazy ! Have a wonderful day ! PS: Hope your renewal goes as smoothly as mine did, took a full 20 minutes !

Another update - went to get my driver's licence renewed last week. Only in Grahamstown would one meet up with two others of similar age, all being friends. The traffic dept's fingerprint machine didn't want to read our thumbprints - reason: we are "elderly". This meant we had to get photocopies of our ID books, certified by a Commissioner of Oaths (and not a Justice of the Peace!?) and return to the department. Once their supervisor arrived back in office from Bisho she would override the system and we would be able to file our applications and pay R216 for a renewed licence. What a rigmarole.

 

Now - I want to know why Grahamstown's Traffic Department do not have a proper finger-printing machine that can read even the "elderly's" prints! Surely this is discrimination against the elderly? I am, sadly, not yet in good physical condition to organise and stage a protest at our traffic department! (LOL)

 

I know of old age pensioners who have recently had to be re-registered and they had their finger prints taken without any problem.

Hi Lily,

 

Maybe the traffic department's machine is in the "elderly" category there, and not you ?? Anyway, hope you moving towards complete recovery after your ordeal...Thinking of you a lot.

It's a new day and I am feeling considerably better than I did yesterday and in previous days. Hope I am now truly on the mend. Pain is far, far less and I am actually getting inspired to start listing again on BoB - must be a good sign. I am still hobbling around (not totally pain free) and having to be very careful to watch my steps so that I don't have another fall, but signs of recovery are definitely here.

 

Again - to everyone who has been so very kind to me over the past two months - I am lost for words when it comes to thanking you for all your caring, phone calls, flowers, emails and prayers. I think BoB Forum has set some kind of internet record with the wonderful family it has inspired - thanks to all at BoB who keep the forum going.
