Crazy Times


Its been a long time since I last posted. I think lifes funny like that, life is what happens whilst your busy making other plans. H is now one and we have a puppy. Must be crazy! Oh my gosh time seems to have gone to fast. I have finally had the diagnosis of arthritis in the spine.

Its a relife as it means at least I know whats happening and that its not just in my head. But its also fustrating. I am on alot of pain killers and if we go out for the day I have to make sure I can hire a wheelchair or mobility scooter as walking any sort of distance is becoming too much.

I don't know if that will ever change but I know that its time to just get on with it. I can't let it hold me back. We may be moving to Scotland soon with oh's job. Thats no bad thing though. His boss here is uncaring and unsymapathetic. A few weeks ago I woke up in the morning unable to move my left leg. It just felt heavy, very scary at the time.

Anyway I was advised by nhs direct to get an ambulance out pronto because it could be something called candine equaine (not sure if i have spelt that properly) If it was that it would have meant emergency surgery. I had Holly in bed with me. I couldn't get down the stairs so I couldn't get her any breakfast.

I called the hubby up at work and told him that if he didnt come home that the ambulance service would have to get social services to look after her which I wasn't happy about. After all he wasn't at sea, he was five minutes down the road. So the Husband tells his boss that hes leaving anyway. His boss throws back at him good luck, you'll be arrested before you hit the gates, for being awol from your place of duty.

Well the husband called the ambulance. The controller asked for his bosses number, gave him a dressing down and lo and behold. Husbands home. 2-3 hours of fighting to have that as the outcome. Ridiculous. But it wasnt worth the husband risking it as we would have lost wages and he could have possibly been sent to the naval prision. Because whilst his reasons are good being awol is being awol.

It has made us think long and hard about the future. Does he stay or leave. For now I am taking each day as it comes and we have both agreeded to wait till we get to Scotland and then make the decision....

More catching up to come soon!!
