Another day another hospital appointment

It's Wednesday that must mean Canterbury hospital! It has been a bit like that lately, today was an appointment with the specialists at Canterbury. I got to see the MS nurse and also the specialist physio nurse. They are both fantastic and have sorted so many different things for me over the years. My first MS NURSE retired about ten years ago and her replacement swopped with my current one because it made logistical sense they were literally passing each other going in opposite directions each morning, by swooping they are both now working their home patches. Well we caught up on what has been happening. How the boric has worked out did the new painkillers work etc. The answer by the way was no, I have a very sensitive bowel and tablet changes often result in unwanted side effects.
The result of all this was I am going to get a call from the pain clinic. I am maxing out on painkillers most days and pain is in itself debilitating. Fatigue levels of late have been awful and it has made quality of life pretty boring. Still it sound as if I am moaning, I am not its just putting the facts down, moaning about it won't change anything. We left Canterbury and then headed to Whitstable to check out a venue where we are visiting in a fortnight time. We drove past the turning twice so just as well we did a reccee we will find it on the Day now. After that we headed homewards having skipped lunch we decided on fish and chips in Sandwich but Heather needed to nip home first. I stayed in the car whilst she went in and retrieved the washing she was worried about, by as she was leaving the house she answered the phone. I saw her again about thirty minutes later. Thank goodness for car radio's I sat in the car being tortured by the newspaper just out of reach in the back of the car. I was delighted to see Heather when she got back in the car.
Fish and chips were delicious we sat in the car catching up on today's happenings eating and drinking Aloe water, our vicar New my liking for it and had bought me two bottles yesterday, he can't stand the stuff and bells me aloe pulp in water is disgusting but I don't care what he thinks I love the stuff. Well that's my news, I doubt I will post anything tomorrow as it is my Birthday and I will be otherwise occupied eating cake and bacon sandwiches etc.  etc. Night folks.
