Firstly, I need to welcome a few new readers...hello, I can't think why anybody would find what I write interesting, I lead a pretty dull life actually, especially during a lockdown and in winter! But welcome anyway, hope I don't bore you to tears.
Thanks for all the comments on my last post. Not yet heard back from the dentist with an appointment, but thankfully my loose tooth seems to have bedded back in a bit - still wobbly but not as much and not so painful. It's liveable with, which is just as well. Funny how some dentists in some areas seem to be operating as normal, yet others - like mine - don't seem to be agreeable to seeing patients unless it's a dire emergency.
One of my nephews was admitted to hospital on Sunday morning in a state of collapse, he's been suffering various strange symptoms, including extreme muscle weakness and pains for a while. He's had lots of tests in the past weeks, but there are long intervals between each set of tests due to covid restrictions, he's not seen a consultant yet and no diagnosis forthcoming thus far, other than a possible immune disorder. He's only 30, bless him. He was due to see a neurologist....in several weeks. Having been admitted, however, the neurologist has now agreed to see him as a matter of urgency. He had a covid test in A&E before they would admit him to a ward, it came back negative (he did have Covid, thankfully mildly, very early on in the pandemic). Last night he was told he'll have to isolate for 10 days (whilst he's in hospital!) as he was exposed to Covid - from one of the other patients in the ward! How did that happen? Bloody scary isn't it, go in hospital because of being very unwell, non-covid related, and get exposed to it whilst you're in there, just to add to your problems. I'm so thankful my exploratory op was a quick in and out thing in a safe specialist day unit.
It's a horrible rainy day today, in fact the local forecast is for varying amounts of rain every day for the next 10 days. So a good time to carry on with the decluttering, which has ground to a halt the past few days. The trouble is, we now have several boxes and bags full of unwanted stuff and are running out of places to put it, seeing as the garage is still full, plus the roof leaks. We did look into getting a skip - blimey, they're expensive! So we will have to go to the tip a few times, despite the rain....well, once husband has got his finger out and sorted out his trailer, which is full of junk and in the full up garage! 😒
I do wish Spring (and the end of lockdown) would hurry up, had enough of this now.
