So disappointed...

I'm gutted!

I just came back from a hospital to see the Orthopedic Surgeon and it looks like he can't help me.
I have had pain in my shoulder for 3 years now.
The first year some hydrocortisone jabs kept it at bay but since then it's been real bad!

In a way it's a good thing my x-rays were normal but it's so painful all the time I'm really struggling now.
The Ortho say's without knowing what exactly the problem is, he doesn't want to 'open it up'.

Where does that leave me...

Well, he's going to refer me to his boss now and see what he thinks so I guess it's a case of just keep taking the pain killers and cranking up the TENS machine for now.

You know, with all this electricity running through my body all the time, it wouldn't surprise me if one of these days, I woke up with a curly perm LOL !

Ok, maybe the orange is stretching it a bit!!LOL

Coo's still struggling on.
His meds have been reduced as he was toxic so his seizures are up again.
He's worried about me too, which isn't helping things and to cap it all it's blooming raining again!

Hey-ho apart from all that we're both hunky-dory!

I'm reminded again of Granny, who always said...
It's a good life if you don't weary!

I think it could be lucky white heather time!

Keep thinking happy thoughs(or taking the pills)!

Well it did rain....

It rained and it rained and it rained! LOL

I'm glad in the end I did decide to put on my wellies after all!

You know something though?
All that rain didn't dampen the spirits, in the words of Wallace and Gromit, it was a grand day out!

It always amazes me how people less fortunate like our wee group, who are all addition/special needs, a bit of a motley crew with an assortment of disabilities! keep so cheerful.

It didn't really rain on our parade, well it did but a multi-coloured assortment of silly rain poncho's and wellie boots and a group with no particularly cares on fashion sense made for a FAB day out! LOL

I'm glad I pushed myself sore shoulder and all and went ahead with this as a dozen people who really deserve a good fun and free outing had a ball! LOL

We were rewarded in the end as in the afternoon the sun came out and we all got to sip cuppa's and coffees on the beach - what a blast!

Bags of chips all around and a ferry ride back home...Fun? it sure was!

Hey ho...

Hi Guys, how goes it?

Things are pretty much the same-o same-o here, Coo's still struggling with seizures but we're kinda resigned to the whole thing and now take each day as it comes!

My shoulder is still sore, even after the hospital visit but I'm hopeful they can do something with it so we'll say it's a work in progress!

Our summer seems to be over here!
All week we've had the wellies and rain jackets out but funnily enough it's still pretty mild, so we're counting our blessings - it could be worse you know!

Our wee club for special needs adults, is off on a day trip tomorrow to the Isle of Arran for the Brodick Highland Games and both Coo and I, are looking forward to the ferry trip as it's been ages since we visited the Islands!

Mind you, the weather forcast doesn't sound too promising but I'm sure it'll be great fun!

Only one thing now...where did I stick those wellies!
