. . . is for Keith to feel better. He is booked in to see the GP today, and have blood tests. PD Nurse wants Thyroid levels checked and thinks his BP is low too. Something needs to happen before he is bedbound. He is struggling to get around, too tired to sit and eat a meal at the table and has no energy whatsoever. I have been awake half the night, worrying.
UPDATE: It's low blood pressure, so he has a prescription for low dose steroids, which we hope will help. Apparently one of the medications for Parkinsons can cause high or low blood pressure. Pulse also low. Blood taken for testing his thyroid levels too. Thank you for all your comments - I will answer them tomorrow. Meanwhile, guess what, the blardy Microwave has just decided to melt the door when it heats things up. Out of Warranty of course. . . What will the 3rd electrical thing be?
I managed to get to Carmarthen yesterday, to see our friends P & D and drop their pressies off. It was good to chat, and I did enjoy sitting by their wood-burner. Really miss ours.
I only managed one shop in town - TK-Maxx - and bought an extra gift each for the girls in there and some William Morris crackers. We don't normally have crackers but with extra family here, I treated us. I came out, intending to go to Charlies, but the traffic was queued right back in that lane, so I went back through Abergwili instead, thinking to go to Chris Thomas for our Christmas fruit and veg, but no room in their car park . . . that's the trouble with not getting there early, as we used to be able to do when we lived 10 miles away not 50 plus.
I did, however, manage to finish stitching the 2nd tree decoration as a gift for Danny's girlfriend's little girl. Just have to put the back on it, stuff it and blanket stitch around the edge. I have enjoyed doing those and having checked out Just Cross Stitch mags on offer on Ebay, bought another Christmas ornaments magazine.
The kittens are still being naughty as usual. I still haven't got the tree up - may try today. I still have a half made wreath - using tree greenery this year -far prefer trails of ivy and wild decoration. My heart just isn't in it.
To add insult to injury, my new kettle died yesterday - 3 weeks after I bought it. I have ordered a new one which I am hoping will last longer. Someone on here kindly recommended a Dualit kettle, so that's what I've gone for. The cheaper end of the range as some are £130!!!
