Re: The Happy Thought Thread Part 4

Back from the eye clinic and it's good news for a change - No more deterioration with my eyes due to the diabetes. If I get a transplant soon they will remain stable now And he was even more surprised that I have not had any cataract development - which usually happens with the operation I had on my eyes.

Happy days

Re: The Happy Thought Thread Part 4

Thanks Nash. The hospital and social work needs to arrange care before their is any chance of him coming home I think they are hoping to arrange for carers to come in 4 times daily which will be a great help to my Mother in Law. I must admit it's been a really stressful couple of weeks with both sets of parents but we have a good family unit who all muck in, well apart from my sister but she is extremely busy at her work.

Excellent news dilli.

Is Osem Jnr still in love?

Hope you are feeling better Osem as I have not really had time to be on the CF lately as my Mum has been attending hospital quite a bit lately and my Father in Law is in hospital atm so it's been a really busy time for me lately.
Thanks guys. Yes it is hard and the bigger he gets the more difficult it gets (he's 6'2" now, as strong as an ox and has all the hairy bits & somewhat obnoxious traits which accompany boys of his age) but now matter how trying, there's never a day during which he doesn't do something which brings a smile to my face and joy to my heart. He's a treasure in so many ways and I'll never stop loving him.

Over the weekend I took him for some lunch to our favourite local café. As I was paying I noticed another middle aged guy standing in the queue behind me who'd been watching my lad (as he was being a bit noisy) and we looked at each other very briefly but I thought no more of it. On my way out I looked over to where he'd been sitting and realised he too was with a teenage lad with special needs - his son/grandson I presume. I wanted to go back in and say something but didn't and I regret that now. It's really hard when you feel so isolated and I dare say he'd have welcomed a chat with someone who knows exactly what he's going through. I'll keep my eyes open for them in future and if our paths do cross again I'll say hello.

Great Dilli. Let's hope this is just the start of a change in your fortunes.

Re: The Happy Thought Thread Part 4

Think this should be a moan rather than a happy thought. Had a phone call from the hospital literally ten minutes ago. Got a pre op assessment on November 27th at 10 past 9, then going in for actual op on December 11! not looking forward to it at all. 2 weeks before Christmas as well, so need to get presents bought and wrapped ASAP. And because of diabetes, it's an overnight stay as well.

They'll be checking your BM all bloody night I bet and put you on a slide.

Still I hope it all goes ok and you get out ASAP
