So much talent in that one room. I love The Traveling Wilburys. In my youth, I had a boyfriend who looked like Tom Petty and he played the guitar which was a Gibson Les Paul Gold Top. He played in a band called Close Shave which came about because my landlord was visiting my flat for a check and his razor was on the sink. The landlord didn’t notice so the name was born. It was a flat above a bank (they were my landlords) and we weren’t supposed to have people stay over. I know Bob Dylan is a marmite type person but I think he is great. Wait until Christmas everyone I will be using Bob then!
August has arrived and the appointments begin. First tomorrow my bone man
I think I am okay. I haven’t broken anything this year, well I tell a lie a couple of coffee mugs. Then on Monday I have 2 appointments at Brompton (my Chelsea Residence) one with my bug man.
The first one is Pseudomonas and the second is Mycobacterium Abscessus. Wrong colour I know but the first one looks like grains of psychedelic rice and the second blue Wotsits (other savoury snacks are available.
After I have seen him I am off to Physio. I think it is the norm for new patients to be seen by them but they know me so I think we will do some lung clearance and have a good chat!
They don’t do the percussion anymore but that is what used to happen.
I then have my diabetic check, another trip to London for lung function tests and then to top off the same week I have my breast cancer screening to go to (boob squashing). Then the following week back to Brompton for my results of lung function and to see my wheezy man.
Depending on the results of everything I will hopefully know what my muddle of medics can do to help. Roll on the end of August. I don’t like wishing my life away but it isn’t going to be the most exciting month.
I have been making Christmas cards and I must admit I am doing quite well. If anyone wants any awareness items for Aspergillosis please go to the website https://aspergillosistrust.org/awareness-goods/ we have a lovely selection of items and be prepared for new items soon!
I forgot to mention that in between all the appointments it will be our wedding anniversary so I hope I will be up to going out for a meal. Need to have time for each other with all of this going on. One good thing going up to London 3 times means I can sample some more of Hummingbird Bakery delights!
Take care. x
