just to say I’m still around, and sorry I haven’t been out to play for quite a while! Did have a good chat with Don a week or two back when he very kindly phoned me.
several reasons, some good, some not so good.
On the plus side our house alterations have liberated me so that I spend a lot of time actually doing music rather than sitting in bed or in my armchair twiddling my thumbs.
On the not so good side, it seems I have a malfunctioning pituitary gland, which means I am undergoing investigations to try to find out why, and to balance my hormones with various replacements.
Back on the good side, the hydrocortisone steroid and thyroxine they are giving me has made me feel more active and less prone to crippling fatigue. Due to start testosterone replacement too.
Not so good- usual sporadic bowel and bladder issues. Also seem to be losing my fingers- dexterity and sensation. I can’t play my stringed instruments anymore. I shall soon have to face up to selling some of them.
Good side- lovely weather, light evenings. And we have had a ramp put in so that I can get myself into the conservatory to enjoy it. No more impossible threshold!
Now off to listen to the radio play that Pat spotted.
