    Good morning Doug,

    It's good to hear that your shoulder is much less painful than it was.

    Please take extra care of yourself and I hope you are completely free of pain very soon.

    Love

    I’ve been feeling a bit low recently – a combination of Dina’s death, shoulder pain, weight loss and the insidious assault of MND on my mobility. But this morning I opened my winter edition of Thumb Print and especially the 2020 events guide.

    All these amazing people doing incredible things for us!

    We are not alone.

    Doug

    I hope that you pick up soon Doug. I've had my Thumbprint around for about 2 weeks awaiting my attention. I haven't felt like reading it yet, mostly because I've had my head into books that I've been reading. I've got through several recently, I have one on the go and I'm thinking
    what to start next. These are my go to distraction and most are very enjoying and engaging. Love Lynne

    Would love to know what you're reading Lynne.. it's my favourite thing !

    Hope you continue to feel a little better each day Doug. It's really hard isn't it to get back on an even keel after a setback or a decline and I know how you were close to Dina.

    My good news is we made it to Spain! We had a technical fault, a storm and a flight diversion but thanks to fantastic special assistance we got here and its lovely and sunny.

    The not so good news is that I am undergoing tests for another pulmonary embolism, in which case we cant fly home for a good few weeks. I have all my medical notes translated and my lovely consultant has been e mailing me so we can google translate it. I am just waiting on a CT scan.

    After many Spanish lessons I can order a seafood paella with a small wine and a beer. I can even ask for a taxi or a cheap, green dress but I cant explain to doctor that I have MND and I think I have a blood clot. I've been doing the wrong course !

    Love to everyone and reading recommendations would be really appreciated,
    Debbie x

    Oh my days, Debbie - your outbound journey sounds horrific, a lesser person (i.e., me) would have given up!!

    And now the clot may be back, sorry to hear this but glad that you knew the signs and you're being looked after. Hopefully you won't be long waiting for the CT scan.

    Enjoy the bit of warmth!

    Love Ellie.

    Oh dear Debbie, you are having a right mixed up holiday. I hope everything gets sorted for you. And you can enjoy your break away.
    Love Sheila

    I am normally an active person and love to avoid being indoors so I don’t have to do boring tasks like housework although that is really quiet impossible at the moment. I have just discovered at our local country park you can hire a great tramper scooter which loves going over grass, muddy paths and best of all, big muddy puddles. My family despair of me but it is ‘such fun’

    Oh Debbie, I hope that you're embolism melts away quickly, and that the hospital sort out either a translator or a medical professional who speaks English.

    About my reading. I've just read three books that were not my usual. These were given to me: two were written by Kasuo Ishiguro, Remains of the Day and Never let me go. I must say that I don't want to read anything like these again. I felt obliged because Steve got them for me. The other book given to me was Jane Harper The Lost Man. This was slow but interesting, set in the outback of Australia, a good mystery about an unexplained death. There was an unexpected ending on this one. I usually read either non fiction, a recent one The Secret Barrister. Or I read fast paced thrillers, mostly associated with crime of one sort or another. I'll put my ipad kindle on later and copy a list of my recent reads, too many for me to remember titles. I'm looking forward to getting back to those gripping tales.

    Love Lynne x
