We have decided the hoist is Scottish since Lynn named it Ally McHoist after the former football player
The real Ally Mccoist
The receptionist at the surgery said she MAY try and get the prescription filled within the 3 days; I hope so as the most I have left is for 2 days!
OUR LOCAL CO-OP
I know this only looks a little slope but when you're pushing a wheelchair laden with shopping all those extra calories consumed over Christmas start to rebel.
By the time I got up this slope I was panting a bit!!!......
Well my "come back to it later" has turned out MUCH later it is now 12 midday Wednesday. I haven't slept yet and Mick has only catnapped until now. It's been a harrowing night. Mick has been coughing and sneezing, grunting and groaning all night. He did manage to eat his dinner but what an effort coughing and spluttering all the time and he worked so hard; he was so enjoying his food and despite struggling all of it was eaten. The whole evening he was trying so hard to open his bowels; I know he was in pain, he groaned and groaned; how my heart ached for him. About 1am this morning, although he had had no success he settled down to sleep; from pure exhaustion I think. I got into bed myself but after about 15 minutes the coughing and sneezing started again. It was like that on and off all night in the end I didn't even try to sleep myself when he had a quick 5 or 10 minutes of respite; I had got to the stage where I COULDN'T sleep. Sometimes he would settle for up to half an hour; I ended up surfing blogs in that time; it was something I could do quietly; I read a few blogfriend archives that I had not read before and dropped into a few stranger blogs ( a stranger is a friend we haven't met yet) and left a few comments here and there.
At about 9am this morning Mick had a little success bowel wise but the coughing and sneezing still persisted. The patch doesn't seem to be helping at the moment. I surmise that with such a bowel build up that his gastric juices are causing the problem but possibly he has a cold or something. I have given him a little "Night Nurse" just in case. He has now been sleeping since 11.15(half an hour) so I thought I'd take this chance to get this post finished and published. Nicole is back to school tomorrow and I want to make her a batch of my Oaty Fruit Bars to take to school for her and her friends to share; a little welcome back to school gift to cheer them all up. Hopefully I'll be able to get Elton John's song "I'm Still Standing" out of my head while I'm doing it.......All MileStones fault re: his comment on "Art,Art............"............LOL ...............quite apt though after a sleepless night!!!!
Sadly my Oaty Fruit bars don't travel well; so for Analia click here for the recipe.
