Mr Motivating

Im here still dragging on with the after effects of the stinking virus, just have a cough and snot still , but annoying me no end , oh and ive pulled something down my side that feels like ive nettled myself day and night...bizarre , but then ive always been strange that way .
Other half is still laughing how he managed to buy a car when i was ill , we picked it up Saturday morning just before Snowmageddon hit , I do see the argument in some ways , we had to spend the back payment fairly quickly or be penalised for having it , the car is ex mobility and comes with a hoist to enable me to get his spazzy chariot in and out of the boot .  But I just dont get the whole modern car thing , its all very Starship Enterprise , very pointless gadget ridden and a million controls for the sound system . He says im just an old dinosaur and need to move with the times ..lol
Next week were back at Sheffield Hospital so i guess we will see if it likes the motorway , Mr goes back to see neurology and get a verdict on whether he can drive again or not .  I think hes vaguely accepted that he probably wont be doing , I just wish they would make theyre minds up one way or the other .
Then he gets a phonecall from a strange mumbly little indian doctor to say theyre now referring him to Hull spinal after 2 years of doing bog all at Lincoln, hes had countless steroid injections into his spine and pelvis all they achieved was to give him headaches for weeks on end , now they say it could be something to do with a benign growth that he has in the inoperable part of his spinal damage , we think theyre clutching at straws but apparently Hull may be able to embolise it , to see if it does any good . Sounds like fun .
On the heart problems , theyre still baffled , they cant find anything wrong with his heart despite him having every test under the sun but the fact remains that it keeps skipping beats, hes just got to wander round with his spray and dial 999 if in doubt .
This makes Mr Bah Humbug sound like a total physical wreck , but hes gimping about as usual , hes a very overweight moth eaten Ewok , though changing his drugs has meant hes lost 2 stone you cant tell , hes much more lucid with this new chemical cocktail though hes in a lot more pain and can only manage walking with his crutches for a few yards at the moment , what he needs is loads of sunshine and a days fishing , hurry up Spring !!

  1. Love reading your posts Kate. I think your virus is probably hanging around because you are a bit run down, it takes it our of you being a carer doesn't it?
    You would thing with all these ct scans that they could pin point the problems with Mr Bah Humbug wouldn't you/
    Thank goodness we are coming to the end of appointments and can now maybe settle down a bit, we have the diagnosis and are now going to have to battle to get some compensation.
    Onward and up as they say. Hugs

  2. Do hope Mr BH gets some relief for that pain and your virus goes soon. I can finally hear clearly after 6 weeks but still coughing a bit.
    Everyone needs spring to arrive ASAP
    Hope you are still eating those oranges!

  4. That prickling/itching down your side - you’ve not got shingles have you? You are rundown and stressed out enough to be susceptible - and it’s chickenpox season.

  5. Glad you are feeling better Kate. Youngest had the nasty virus and she ended up off work for 3 weeks! Think we all need a bit of sun to brighten us up. Hope the investigations turn something up for Mr BH.
    Eldest and partner have now moved into permanent council accommodation - a purpose-built (albeit originally for elderly) bungalow with wet-room and wider doorways for wheelchair. They can now get more help as they have a permananent home (well, they have to do a year's "probation" first). They have settled in by setting up all of their electronic systems and game consoles but have no seating yet for visitors - obviously partner has w/chair and there is an office chair for eldest - and I have to take my own milk if I want a cuppa as they don't take it. Not sure if it is a cunning ruse to keep people at bay! Still, I am now sleeping really well and wake up feeling refreshed instead of with a sense of dread.

  6. I think we might soon need a degree to own a car Kate. Andy has just had a new to us car and can I work out how to get the radio onto his favourite station....no I can't. The clock needs putting to the right time too and that is a whole other puzzle.

    Hope there is loads of sunshine soon so that Mr BH can get his fishing day.
    Hugs-x-

  8. Laugh if you want to, but when someone writes about their snot tissues, I struggle touching the text on my iPad! As if germs will leap out from the screen! Hope some answers come for your hubby soon, I have a nephew in a very similar situation. x
