Daughter has recently (Thursday) been in for a second operation on her knee, which has been causing pain for some years now, and hopefully, this will resolve the problems of the last job which was botched.
It was in the same hospital as Son has been attending, and we hope that on follow-up visits they don’t get the files mixed-up!
For twelve weeks, Son has been suffering terrible nerve pains in hands and arms, and it has now just been given a name (it has only once before been seen by one of the specialists, in his professional career!) ……not that that has helped the reality…the pains are still agonising and debilitating. How he has put up so long with it, I don’t know. He admits that he could not live alone with it….you need the presence of human company.
The Consultants have called for another batch of tests and we await the results and their deliberations……with hopefully a rapid and positive answer to this distressing condition. The newest pain-killers seem to be having some effect.
His, and our, friends have been marvellous, with constant phone calls to pass on their thoughts and best wishes.
The best prescription seems to be football……Aberdeen has been playing quite well recently…..maybe it would be possible to get a couple of tickets on the NHS! Only trouble is that they might lose those matches!
