Re: Today I shall be Mainly...

Bob and I are going walking this morning. This afternoon I shall carry on with some garden tidying and cut back my dying hostas. The fuschias continue to flower which is nice.

Re: Today I shall be Mainly...

Home to sun, it has been a very cold and wet trip to the Cotswolds, and the hotel eas very poor. The worst I have ever stayed in. It looked grand in a beautiful setting but let itself down. You can’t expect much on a cheap coachtrip, but decent beds, chairs, edible food and cleanliness are expected!

Re: Today I shall be Mainly...

Re: Today I shall be Mainly...

I can recommend Berkeley Castle if you are down that way Sue! I have been there Wendy, Bob worked in Berkeley for about 10 years before he went to Anglesey. We had a mobile home in the reidential park there. I remained in Rochdale with the girls and Bob worked there during the week at Berkeley Tech...

Re: MEDICAL MATTERS

Lack of communication? More likely there was no box to tick. So I'm blaming the IT gang. Sorry Kev. In my school days it was always said that you couldn't become a doctor unless you were good at Latin. Asking why this was so the usual answer was 'well all the prescriptions are written in Latin and ...

Re: Today I shall be Mainly...

We did about 5 miles in two and a quarter hours, over some rough ground above Whiworth. We got the photos but up on the tops in the old quarry the wind was wild and it was a bit treacherous when the path went near the edge. However we feel invigorated if a little wind swept.

Re: Today I shall be Mainly...

" So I have been caught in a statistics trap." I think that's my problem also Sue. If going on their programme means that you get a free blood test annually go for it. You can always ignore the bleeding obvious That is one way of looking at it. Off for a walk this morning. Bob wants some photos for...

Re: Today I shall be Mainly...

Had the chat, put forward my concerns. It appears I had higher cholesterol levels 6 years ago! My ratio is very good and well within accepted limits and better than it was before. Apparently the guidlines have changed which means that although on paper I am healthier than I was 6 years ago, I am now...

Re: MEDICAL MATTERS

I had a bladder operation under a spinal block but also I was very lightly sedated. They thought I was more sedated than I was because the surgeons were discussing their vasectomies and I joined in. That caused a laugh or too. I need to be consvious to check I still had full bladder function afterwa...

Re: MEDICAL MATTERS

Tizer is absolutely correct, Before you can establish a true trend the last point measured is ignored. By looking back at your history you should get an idea of the true trend. For myself after years of highish cholesterol readings, no statins, my last reading was well into the acceptable level. Lo...

Re: MEDICAL MATTERS

It's barmy to say someone is pre-diabetic if this is based on one blood test. A scientist would never make a claim based on one reading but unfortunately the health advisors do so. If they get a blood sugar result that they consider too high then they should simply ask for you to have another test ...

Re: MEDICAL MATTERS

Wendy , Bob HAS TO have reduced fat, he has familial high cholesterol. He won’t do statins therefore it has to be diet, and I am sorry we will disagree on this but high fat is not an option. We eat butter, ( but one pack lasts the two of us ages because I don’t eat bread except one slice of toast at...

Re: MEDICAL MATTERS

So our blood tests arrived yesterday. Bob has to see the GP, we think it is probably his cholesterol which he knows about. It is not diet related but is familial . At least we assume it is that. However because of his problem we always eat low fat and loads of fruit and veg. Infact we nearly overdos...

Re: Today I shall be Mainly...

Today I shall pop to the optician to look at their glasses. I was checked last November but didn’t like the choice and as Bob had new specs I said I would wait a few months. I really don’t like these big black frames, i like something a little less conspicuous on my face. This afternoon I have me se...
