What a glorious morning!
When I woke this morning, Harry the Heron was in the pond again!
(he needs a slap on the wrist....pinching my fish......)
I've been thinking about the animals in the garden, I bet it sounds like I have a huge one in the middle of the countryside...(I wish...)
No, not at all, it is about 40'-50' long and about 24' wide. There are other houses and gardens each side, and to the back.
I've been really lucky with he animals who do visit, we have had:_
Harry, the Heron,
Don and Daisy ducks,
Freddie the fox,
Pigeons, Blue tits, black birds, magpies, and many other birds that I have been unable to identify.
We did have a bull finch...he looked at the bird boxes and decided that the accommodation was not to his taste and flew off
I had a dream last night, and all of the animals were in the garden at the same time.....wow, wouldn't that be great!
The only thing missing in the dream, was me sitting in the middle of them, singing,
'One day my Prince will come'. Lol!
OK....Now to how I feel.................
Ooooooo, Daisy duck has just landed, sorry, just got a bit side tracked.....
Any way, how I feel..
My blog is self indulgent for most part, but I like to share information...
The following is mainly for people who are in a similar situation, that want to know, or need to know what to expect at certain points along the journey.
Do not read any further if you do not want to know.
Bearing in mind that I was told I have 2 - 4 months.
Each day, I feel a little more tired than the day before, I have a little more pain than I had the day before, things are changing a bit quicker than before.
Sleeping can be difficult. I lay in one position and sleep, no problem.
As soon as I choose to turn over, the pain comes. If I lay on my left, the right side of my body, front and back give pain. If I lay on my back, my groin and left back cause pain. It takes ages to get back to sleep, If I get back to sleep at all. I usually get up and take more pain killers.
My little cough now brings phlegm.
Tiredness and lethargy are increasing.
I still have tinnitus.
My hands shake quite a lot now.
Occasional incontinence issues, but you never know when, so I need to be prepared! lol! I am less able to take very deep breaths..........
My hair doesn't seem to be growing back, bit as you know, I don't care!
Eye lashes still coming out, eye brows growing back a bit, but where I don't wnat them! Lol!
OK, You can read on if you like.....
The good news is that I am still breathing and enjoying my life!
All that having been said, it could be worse.
I am still able to do the things that I want to, most of them anyway, I just have to pace myself, and ensure that every other day is a rest day.
And looking on the bright side, end of April is the 4 months, and I am still feeling relatively well.
And as I said earlier on, I am still breathing, I am alive, I am enjoying my life, I am still very able.
Compton Hospice has all my 'bits and pieces' under control!
