Re: Blood Donors

Yes, I used to get a text shortly after donation to tell me where my armful had gone. I am going to book at the next session and see if they will have me back. I should have my scan results by then. :smile:

Re: WHAT ATTRACTED YOUR ATTENTION TODAY?

Didn't take long to announce that the speed limit on the road would be reduced and the council has magically found money to introduce speed bumps as well. Can't see how they can do that on a road that will now have a 50 limit rather than the national norm of 60 for an A road. I wonder if we could ge...

Re: MEDICAL MATTERS

I can't quite get my head around (no pun again) how the mechanism for a contrasted scan works. It's almost instantaneous reaction to what they shove into you. I think I will have to google that.

Re: THE FLATLEY DRYER

I have some Damart thermal combies which I used to use when fishing in winter. Excellent at keeping you warm when it was biting cold, but if the sun came out you felt like you could explode. :smile:

Not in Maz's league but debilitating nevertheless. I am happy to report that my tight calf that was limiting me earlier in the week has now resolved. I went out for a walk yesterday and repeated a route that I did the week before. Finished it with just a bit of pain kicking in but 5 minutes faster t...

We have one of the Barlick Fell Runners (John Boothman) doing the race as well. He should be finishing around now and may be around 7th in the men's race. Lot's have been following him all week over in FB land.

They will get the opportunity again when she comes back with the same diatribe in a few days. EU has already stated that they are not prepared to tweak anything, they already have a deal and they are sticking to it, at the moment.

Re: MEDICAL MATTERS

Thanks Maz. Just got back from Jimmy's. We got a taxi from the station up to the hospital after a bit of lunch. He took us more or less right to the correct bit where the scanner is located. Mobile scanner is run by Alliance Medical and is a two unit setup, one trailer mounted job for the MRI scanne...

Re: MEDICAL MATTERS

MRI scanner for me today over at St James's in Leeds. I am hoping for a good outcome on the results, this one is the first post op and will become the benchmark for the annual scans after this one. Non contrast as far as I am aware, nothing in my appointment letter to say otherwise.

Re: Today I shall be Mainly...

Happy Birthday Sue.

Today I will mainly be travelling to St James's in Leeds for my first post op MRI. Car, train and taxi for this one as it's a bit of a warren up at Jimmy's so we will let the taxi driver get us to the right area.

The later models which were cheaper construction and ranged for semiconductor and IC work had a slow cut out. You saw plenty of those models with bent pointers when acc...
