Thank you, Curious.  I need a really big supply of both right now ... and yes, I can feel it!  happyheart  :thanks:
I have been in touch with Feather to fill her in on the latest (as she is already aware of much of the surrounding situation anyway).  
Right now I'm just too bewildered, shocked, angry and exhausted to go into the details and there is much to do now.  Never one to lie down in the face of adversity - or injustice, I intend to see this through to the end - and not just for my own sake.  I envisage this is going to be a long haul, so will be preoccupied for a while, but am determined to see justice prevail and when it does, (as yer man wotsisname says) .... I'LL.BE.BACK ....... to fill in the spaces.

Well, that's kinda weird ....  The moment I had posted the above - this Thought for the Day message came through to my Inbox.   Highly relevant:


"When we feel stuck, going nowhere -- even starting to slip backward -- we may actually be backing up to get a running start."

-- Dan Millman

To change, we must go through a transition zone. It's not easy being in transition. Thoughts, beliefs and habits are all in flux. It can create a sense of groundlessness, of being in a void that can be quite uncomfortable.

When we're in the void, our first impulse will be to revert to old habits because they feel comfortable. Our goal is to hang in there until the change is complete. Knowing that TRANSITIONS ARE PART OF THE CHANGE PROCESS helps us muster the courage to put up with the discomfort, the uneasiness, the void.

Change requires a letting go of what we've always known and done to allow in something new. We need to trust ourselves and higher forces to unfold a new reality for us.

"Every positive change - every jump to a higher level of energy and awareness - involves a rite of passage. Each time to ascend to a higher rung on the ladder of personal evolution, we must go through a period of discomfort, of initiation. I have never found an exception."

-- Dan Millman


Thank you, Dan Millman, - whoever you are! toast

It's nice to know that it's a temporary transition situation you and I are experiencing right now, kk.
We both have our problems--albeit of a different nature--but we must persevere in order to come out at the other side.
We have each other to talk to and that is a great bonus.I'm with you in all but physical presence. xxx.happyheart

Well, I am happy and relieved to say that (true to the Dan Millman quotes above) justice has been done  judge   and sanity has been restored.  It's entailed an extremely difficult and arduous ordeal, involving perseverance and determination in getting to this stage, but it was so worth the effort in the end.

Now I can get back to some kind of 'normal'.  purr   yay

Glad to hear everything has worked out well for you KitKat, whatever it is you have been going through!
I have just been reading through some back posts in this thread and have an idea its to do with your health?
Whatever it was I am very happy to see you have come through the other end.  I not so sure about you getting bAck to normal though confused.  you have to be normal in the first place to get that back. jocolor

Well, I suppose I should have known better than to relax too much and for too long ...

One huge stress turned out okay and now behind me sunny  but ... letter in post today from hospital says the [now just yearly] mammogram I had last week shows "an abnormality with the right breast" and so an urgent appointment has been made for 23rd August for some further x-rays and ultrasound and possible "needle test" (biopsy) in order to "clarify the situation".  rock  

The letter does say that "the radiologist feels this is not likely to be a serious problem" but these further tests are required to "clarify the situation", so hopefully it's not going to be a case of "Here we go again" What a Face   .

Well, I am non the wiser.  shrug
I arrived early at hospital this morning, for my 10:30 appointment.  Delays all round, I eventually got 'seen' at 12:00 (!) - only to be told there had been an administrative mistake (two other people in same situation) and that our appointments had been booked for the wrong day, as the consultant we were to see and for our particular situation, was not there on that day!  Told that a new appointment date would be notified to me by letter as soon as possible.  They were very apologetic - and surprised at my calm understanding and "positive outlook".  I hadn't the heart (or inner energy) to explain that I am used to this sort of thing happening (over the years) and that it was quite pointless to be stressing or getting annoyed (at least at this juncture ....) as it only makes matters worse.
So, it's back in the old Waiting Game again ... annoyed  waiting for this new appointment date to be made. 
One good thing at least - I have been assured that I will be told the result on the day and any consequential further arrrangements explained at the time, even though the official written notification will take the usual week (at least) to arrive.
So, the saying for the day is not quite "Here we go again" ... but rather "There really is no end to it ... ".

Well, the new appointment date is for 5th September (next Monday) - but in yet a different hospital!  It's to be at St Mary's Hospital in Paddington, a newly built part of the hospital - which specialises in "Innovative Surgery". surprised  scared  Apparently, all the top medical specialists in the country are to be found there, so I guess that's some small kind of comfort.  The building itself is (I feel) quite claustrophobic, but it's right next to where the canal towpath walk starts, taking you down to one of my favourite places in London, Little Venice, with its pretty little canalside barge café. (Some of you might remember - this is where we met up for one of our Spiritlove Meet-Up adventures, (Feather, lar-lar, bimbow) when we went on the barge boat down to Camden, passing through Regents Park Zoo.  A quiet, pretty, relaxing, hidden part of London - in such contrast to the hustle and bustle that's going on all around.

I should apparently know the results on the day if the ultrasound scan turns out to be OK, but if I have to have the biopsy (needle test), then I will have to wait about a week to know the result.

Weird letter from my GP today.  Not sure what to make of it at all ...

It says the report from the Oncologist dated 14.10.16 is back.  Please phone to make a routine appointment to see a doctor to discuss the report.

wtfcat   I can only assume that this is referring to that appointment I had way back on 5th September!  timeglass (mentioned in my last post here) - Can't think what else it would be.

And what the hell is a "routine appointment" anyway?!!   sigh

Huh?  Perhaps an appointment that the NHS doesn't consider urgent, so that you may wait months before the date they give you comes round.

Just so you can drive yourself silly worrying about it.    nuts

You'll find out when you ring for that "routine appointment", but I hope you won't wait too long, Kitkat.



Be grateful for even the smallest thing, blessings come in many disguises.

This post is just copy and paste from the same text I have posted on our family forum - and should be self-explanatory:


Today one of the worst days in a long long time.  Pain everywhere - real burning pain, especially in lower back. Cant sit stand lie widout huge discomfort.  Have doubled my painkillers (is ok to do that cos prescription is for 1 or 2 twice a day(they last for 12hours) but I usually only take the 1 every 12 hours).  Anyway the extra has made absolutely no difference to this current pain - hoping it will help with sleep tho.  Thats part of the problem though, wid the extra painkiller it helped sleep last night, I actually slept for 14 hours! Obviously needed that sleep, but meant pain was acutely worse when I woke up cos had been lying in same position for all that time - also meant late with morning tablets.  Pain is just like it was at the very beginning - only worse now cos the extra hands pain as well (and the painkillers dont go anywhere near helping that anyway cos its a different type of pain (related to the Diabetes afaik). hard typing this today. If i keep my hands still at a certain position its bearable - but the slightest little deviation from that can be excruciating.
Wont be able to go to Spook night tonight.   Even forgetting the pain and discomfort, the extra dose painkillers makes extra dozy, so not able to drive, let alone sit for an hour when get there.

I will try the morphine tonight and see how am tomorrow.  If still the same tomorrow I won't be able to go wid you to collect your new glasses Kev.  If I remember correctly, you due to collect them on the 30th?  Will be in touch tomorrow anyhow to let you know one way or other.

(The voice to text that I use on my phone now for texting messages is just great - wid the hands issue. Just speak into the phone and it types it for you. Even better than using a stylus.  I trying to find out if there's a way i can incorporate that into posting here on the forum too - especially for days like today). Crying or Very sad
