    I'm a bit of an ostrich when it comes to my health, too busy to be poorly, but last Friday my toes went numb by Sunday it had reached my bum!
    Even I couldn't ignore this so a quick trip to my GP was in order.
    Well we may knock the NHS and it is creaky but by god when you need it, it's marvellous.

    Within an hour of seeing my GP I was in hospital, slightly bewildered by all the attention by Monday evening I'd had an MRI, X-rays and shed loads of other tests.

    Poor health never comes at a convenient time and of course Martin would have to be in Scotland not working from home as normal! Luckily my daughter had come to stay for a few days for some lovely mum and daughter time...

    Anyway the short story is I've got Acute Transverse Myelitis. Inflammation of the spinal cord. Lots of tests being done to find the cause and obviously ascending numbness and paralysis is never good news but I'm optimistic it might all be temporary.

    I'm trying hard to keep my sense of humour and I want to share this news with you my fellow funsters as a way of distracting myself and hopefully we can have a giggle along the way.

    Heard this yesterday...

    Male patient next to me..

    "Nurse NURSE can I have the commode?"

    "Yes of course"

    Curtain closed and russel of clothing follows then he says.,

    "Watch your feet nurse"

    Well I'm keeping you company! My back went into spasm on Sunday, my O.H was in the garage so I spent half an hour on the floor between bed and wardrobe with two dogs licking my face wondering what new game I was playing.

    G.P was called Monday as I didn't want anyone trying to move me on Sunday, O.H did manage to get me into bed though. As yet I'm just on Co.Codamol +paracetamol, so I can move about, I couldn't walk unaided until yesterday, I have been given some exercises to do, X-rays or M.R.I will only be done if no better after two weeks.

    I wanted to join my youngest son and wife in Lincolnshire next week ! The van is all ready to go! So I'm going to be really pd off if I can't get mobile very soon.

    Hope you are starting to recover.
    Things could be worse I'm just looking at headlines of Cilla who is the same age as me R.I.P. Pet .

    Take care Dawn, thinking about you x

    If you were a Mercedes they could reset your ECU, take you out of limp mode :)

    MadgeD good luck, it's so frustrating when we can't get away isn't it? we are missing the ballon festival in Bristol this weekend. :(

    The dogs licking your face made me smile.

    Wouldn't that be wonderful!?

    I've just noticed your thread, hope you get it sorted soon, I was looking forward to catching up with you and Bev with some gin at Bristol.

    Do you think your van is cursed? Have you thought about having a blessing in it?!
