    A week tomorrow and we should have been on the Plymouth - Santandar ferry off on our way to meet Penelopepitstop and the rest of the funsters...

    Monday the 29th November which was a bad day for us anyway,, I was taken ill with a Liver & urine infection... could not get to the doctors as I would have had to stop at every Lamp-post & Telegraph pole & tree en-route (had to have a pee every five mins).. So the doctor came out pretty dam quick, within an hour, prescribed Antibiotics,, if no change with 24 hours to give him a bell,, very little change even after 36 hours..

    The only difference was they were having an adverse effect on my other organs chest - kidneys etc.. he straight away took me off the originals and put me on some different ones, thank gord wihin 12 hours things got considerably better. so much so I now only have a few problems with my Kidneys and a reucurance of my cracked ribs from a few weeks previous..

    I have never been ill or felt so crap in all my life as I have over the last six days..:cry:

    We had a discussion Judy & myself,, and thought it was not worth taking the chance on the trip down next Sunday,, So we decided that it would be better to postpone and re schedule for just after Xmas & the New Year, Judy contacted Brittany Ferry`s and she was told had we of left it another day we would have lost all our money,, as it was we only lost £25 for admin costs,, which was better than losing the full £525 which it cost.. pheeeew that was close..

    Tonight we were supposed to have been going to a top notch restaurant in Dartmouth, a treat from some of our friends, a going away and early xmas get together.. but had to cancell that as well.. :cry:

    I also had a pm from Brian (Hilldweller) of his family problems, (I would not have mentioned it but I see he has already explained,) so I am not braking any confidentiality rules.. I wish him all the luck in getting his family dilema sorted, and of our own experience this time last year can only say he has definately done the right thing by not going.

    Lastly my sincere apologies to Ant&debs on the axle front,, if I could crawl down a hole and hide I would.. We have been told to leave it as long as possible as these things have a habit of reuccuring .. and the ribs have no where knitted themselves properly..

    If any "Funsters" are going to Zahora before the midd`ish part of January and have a bit of room on a trailer or could see their way to stowing axle inside M/H (Which is what we were going to do) can you give it some thought? Size approx is = 95inches long,,, across the hubs approx 16 inches and weighs about 1 cwt.. is clean with no grease or oil and I will wrap the hubs in bubble wrap to avoid any sharp area`s.If not all being well we are hoping to do the trip (not checked ferries yet) 20 -24th Jan..

    Thanks for taking the time to read my ramblings...

    You old wreck.

    FFS take it easy and get properly mended before you swing into action again. Your super hero days days are behind you, be content with being human.

    I've lost super hero status, the mother and father of all colds, as only a man can get.

    Daughter has taken the first steps, negotiated a load less hours to work. I don't know the detalis yet but at least she's doing something positive.

    Mo - when did you break your ribs?

    I only ask cos Pete broke 5 of his in 2005 and he still suffers whenever he gets a cold of any kind which instantly turns into a chest infection, although TBH he hasn't really stopped wheezing at all since last winter. Good thing for him that he can't hear himself cos it drives me utterly potty esp when I'm trying to go to sleep cos I know it's no use prodding him, cos he can't make it stop ........

    Blooming great, innit?

    I only had two cracked ribs about six - seven weeks ago, which also bought on a chest infection..

    Hospital said take it easy and not put any strain on my chest and all should be well in about 4 - 6 weeks which should have been this weekend.. but still painful..

    Could that (Ribs) have bought on the liver and urine infection cannot think what else?

    Sorry to hear that John,, would have been nice to catch up with you and Trish again..

    Weather is pretty much the same all over Spain at the moment.. Isn`t it ?

    Those friends that lived next door to us in "Torrevieja" said a couple of days ago it was wet,, windy & chilly.. so you might be jumping out of the frying pan into the fire so`s to speak..

    I certainly woudn`t come back here for Xmas,, bleedin horrible..

    Or truth be known you dont want to come to another Bar-B-Q with us again,, do you? :Tongue1::Wink: :Rofl1: :Rofl1:

    So sorry to hear your news Maurice.:Sad:

    Take care of yourself and get Judy to pamper you - then when you feel better you can come out and enjoy yourselves!:thumb:

    We've found another bar with a pool table for your son - it's nearer to the site too!:Smile:

    Mo, only just seen this thread. So sorry you had to go through this.

    To say kidney and urinary infection sounds quite mild, doesn't it, but I know that the hospital sent for my daughter when I was in hospital with one.... they can be really serious and you probably felt a lot worse than some people with what on the face of it are worse illnesses. They are not to be taken lightly.

    Make sure that you keep on top of the antibiotics and remember, that after a couple of weeks of being better should the slightest sign of reinfection come back go to the doctor's IMMEDIATELY. Sorry if sound bossy, but it's because I care about you. You have become a good friend to me over recent months.

    Hugs, Joy xx

    I would add to what Jen said, I did have a collapsed lung with the broken ribs. Plus I re-broke one 12 weeks or so later - just from coughing ....... felt it go when we were in France fishing - bloody Gauloises!
