    I am indeed - though it feels a bit surreal that it's come around again so quickly. How about you?

    If this is just a heavy cold Im so glad I had the flu jab Perd.. paid for it in Boots on the Isle of Wight a few months back.. I would recommend we all get the jab, its not that this strain is more dangerous, well not that I know its just that our NHS is so near the breaking point that you will want at all costs want to avoid any complications of flu sending you into hospital . Its around 15 quid for a mild scrape on your arm.. get it.

    So Trump is upping his plan to end the world with his Jerusalem gambit, but then he was paid 25 million by a supporter to do that when he campaigned to be the President.

    I really cant see how May can dig herself out of this hole, I cant stand her but she has taken on a role that would never end well for anyone. No deal on brexit potentially means she loses the DUP votes and crashes out while a hard border will come back in Ireland.. stuff of nightmares for them we may as well bring back Cromwell

    Us guys are notorious for not wanting to go to the doctor when we should. Earlier this year my wife reckoned that a skin tag thing on my back had gotten bigger & that I should get it checked out. It took some convincing, but eventually I relented & went to the doctor about it. While it turned out benign (they did a needle biopsy), the doctor suggested I have a full checkup & blood tests etc, as it had been quite a while (ie many years!) since I had anything done. These tests showed up some "anomalies", & so it is now 6-8 months later & over that time I have had an ECG, heart stress tests, CT Scans, Renal Ultrasounds & a battery of blood tests (even a gene mutation test!!).

    The results? While my ticker appears to be OK, it seems I only have 50% kidney capacity left now (they reckon I would have been born with less than 100% to begin with). I have to have my blood pressure taken every 3 months from now on plus a kidney function blood test every 6 mths - any deterioration & it's back to the specialist. Needless to say my family weren't thrilled to hear that I may have to come looking for a kidney one day! Haha!

    I also had to see a haematologist for more tests. So it also turns out my blood is too thick - producing too many red blood cells - & is at a level which leaves me at somewhat of a high risk of blood clots or a stroke! I have had to take aspirin daily for the past couple of months to try & thin my blood out, & have to go back in early December to see if that is working. If not, a bone marrow biopsy is the next step (which the doc reckons can be a bit painful!!). Hopefully it won't come to that! (In the meantime, he said to come back straight away if I ever have chest pains or slurred speech etc!).

    Considering this all started with the little skin thing on my back, each of the doctors has said to me "I suppose this has all come as a bit of a shock to you?". You can imagine my response! When they asked if I am feeling ok, I said that I was before, but I am not so sure now!!!

    I suppose the moral to all this, as Perdita has importantly pointed out, is that you should always go to the doctor no matter how small your condition/illness is, or how much a waste of time you think it might be. Again, as Perdita said, it is better to find some things out sooner rather than later. After her own health scare late last year, my wife insisted I go to the doc this time. If I hadn't found all this out now, & hopefully can take steps to control/monitor it all, then it may have been a much bigger problem further down the track.......

    (Sorry to inflict this little rant on you guys, but I am feeling a bit anxious leading up to my return visit to the haematologist in December - I am a bit 'doctored out' at the moment!)


    I went back to the haematologist yesterday & all good!! My blood pressure is ok & the daily aspirin seems to be doing its job, so no bone marrow biopsy needed (yet) - woo hoo!!


    Glad to see you back, Dazzle!


    Still a couple of weeks to go, but I would like to wish everyone on Soapboards a very Merry Christmas & a Happy & Prosperous New Year!!
