Just a brief update.....finally going in for Laser Throat surgery on the 12th October.Very nervous, but after recent cancellations, need to get this over with.

As stated in my previous post, the date has been changed several times due to different circumstances.

It has been very difficult after my fall, unable to do much for myself.....Allan is now very experienced in shampooing, and blowdrying my hair etc. and I've slowly become a lady of leisure, unable to cook or wash up afterwards. Luckily Allan is a capable chef.

Now managing a little better with the 'painful' hand, but after 3 weeks unable to sleep, burning/tingling sensation. I can now move my fingers a little. Had to see my own Dr at the end of last week, and she feels it is the 'Carpel tunnel'.....which I had sort of diagnosed myself, via the internet, as I fell directly on the hand, she may give me a Cortisone injection in a couple of weeks, or refer me for Surgery. I've been given Amitriptyline, just for the sleep problem, but only had one decent night so far!

Anyhow, I've accepted the new date for Throat surgery, and hope to be able to cope with it all. The bruising of the hand/arm is almost gone, but still very sore.

Sorry not to write more, but still typing with the left hand, and very tiring. How we take 'being able' so for granted.

This has certainly been a year to remember, and Allan is still unemployed. BUT, it has meant he could be here for me.

All for now



  1. As you say ,what a year !,I will be praying for a quick and successfull recovery for you dear ,and what a treasure Allan is for sure Jan xx

    All the best for tomorrow. At least this too will be behind you and things surely can only get beter.
    Alan is doing a grand job looking after you. I would have to live on egg and chips or chips and eggs if Bryan was looking after me. lol I haven't trained him well at all.
    Take care and good luck tomorrow.
