    Good to hear the coconut oil is working well, Barry.

    Keep up the recovery!

    Love Ellie.

    Thanks everyone for checking in on me.

    Yes the dreaded C has been troublesome and they gave me laxatives but I am reluctant to take them in case it has the opposite effect. I have increased my daily dosage of coconut oil and this seems to be working. I hope nobody is having breakfast.

    Kayleigh,

    I remember watching Bagpuss with my daughter and when I was a child we only had 3 channels in black and white.

    Love,
    Barry

    Kayleigh, you reminded me of the hundreds of times that I read Bagus to my children and did so off the top of my head for my grandchildren. 'Bagpuss dear Baguss, oh fat furry cat puss wake up and see the thing that we bring. I could go on, from memory but I'll spare you all.

    About painkiller side effects and instructions. I read every word of the instructions that come with any and all medications. Codeine causes me constipation but Tramadol, a similar opiate does not. Lynne

    Thankfully, we can usually rely on you or Ellie to warn us about the dreaded 'Constipation' TC! - and it's always very kind of you both to flag it up as an issue to be aware of, just in case we don't know about it.

    It's not good if we suffer from constipation and I didn't know that it was a possible side effect of painkillers until I read about it on the forum.I suppose I should always read the patient information leaflet that comes with all medication, but .. does everyone really always read all that smallprint? ...... and you'd have to pass me the magnifying glass first LOL - and as liquid refreshment while I am reading it, I expect glass of prune juice wouldn't be a bad idea!

    I hope you are taking things easy Barry and cabin fever isn't getting to you too much! If you havn't been able to get out into your garden yet, hopefully you will be able to soon. Dreary weather at the moment and so no sign of butterflies in my garden today - I was pleased to get a visit from a woodpecker though! .... whenever I see a woodpecker it always reminds me of Professor Yaffle - you and TC might be too young to remember that childhood TV favourite 'Bagpuss' from way back, or perhaps you were too old to watch it LOL! - and/or, most likely, you didn't have 'square eyes' like I did! LOL.

    A couple of my favourite Bagpuss memories (and, of course, featuring the most distinguished woodpecker on TV --Professor Yaffle! )....

    ..... all part of my happy childhood memories of watching well-loved TV classics like Andy Pandy, The Magic Roundabout and Camberwick Green - but If you were to ask if I remember 'Muffin the Mule', then that would definitely be way before my time!

    Love to everyone,
    Kayleigh xx

    Hi Barry,

    Hope you are up and running around but I guess not. You probably don't want to hear this as well but please make sure you're not Constipated at all mainly because of the pain medication.

    Guess that you fell backwards onto something.

    I know you don't like to talk about your problems but we do like to know.

    Best wishes, Terry

    Hi Barry,

    Sounds like a good plan to sit out in the garden tomorrow or another day, if you can. It's such a lovely time of year with many flowers in full bloom. I was sitting out in my garden today and the flowers were attracting a lot of butterflies - there were lots of small white butterflies and also a few colourful ones too (I think they were Admiral butterflies).

    Thanks for letting us know how you are getting on. Many of us are thinking of you and hope you will be feeling much better very soon.

    Love Kayleigh x

    Thank you all for the kind words of support and encouragement. I am starting to get cabin fever and if the weather holds then I will sit in the garden. Running out of happy juice (morphine) but I don’t want to depend on it so I will revert to codine.

    Love to everyone.
    Barry

    Hi Barry. I only just saw your message about your fall. Breaking 2 vertebrae must be extremely painful. I hope that you heal quickly. Lynne

    Anything you need to know, just PM Dr Doug, Pleasure Consultant. My usual prescription, however, is just to buy new batteries.

    Big hug
    Doug
    So, Dr Doug, when you get your new batteries in place, do you go on forever, like the Duracell bunny? Ha ha ha!

    Sorry that you had a fall, Doug. I hope you recover soon, Kayleigh and I need you on top form!

    Hi Dina,

    I was going to suggest 'Casanova Carpenter' - but I see he has already offered his services (and no surprise there!) LOL

    .... and I note from his post to you, he recommended that you acquire some new batteries (I can't think why? ) ) - perhaps he will want you to send them to him for his hearing aid! LOL

    Love Kayleigh x

    P.S and if Doug doesn't need the batteries for a hearing aid, please could you send them to me for mine! Lol - that's if you don't need them for something or other of course! Lol

    Hi Doug,

    I'm sorry to hear you had a fall yesterday. I hope that you were able to get help quickly and that you have got some 'happy juice' like Barry has to help alleviate any pain.

    As a treat and to help you recover, I contacted a blonde physiotherapist I know to see if she could come round to yours to cheer you up and massage any bruised areas - unfortunately she is away on holiday! But never mind, as I know you like sexy sirens wearing red lipstick, I have found someone else to call in on you instead ..... and good news - she will not only massage any bruised areas but has promised to kiss them better as well!

    She has already got her red lippy on and is even going to the trouble of curling her hair! (Don't worry it's not Norah Battey in her wrinkled stockings again! LOL) .......

    I hope you are looking after yourself and I hope you weren't badly injured when you fell.


    Love Kayleigh x

    A bit?…..a bit!!!!

    Dina – you were being VERY naughty, very cheeky and very, very funny.

    Yesterday was a bit rough because of a fall – nothing as bad as Barry, which I was really sorry to hear about. Hope you’re slowly mending Barry. So the way Ellie’s lovely butterfly post had been expertly hijacked made me laugh out loud. A much needed tonic at the time. Thank you.

    [Perhaps you could teach me about the birds and bees then, please, Kayleigh? I'm too sweet, young and innocent to know anything about them! Ha ha ha. Which of our lovely men on here do you think would help us]

    Anything you need to know, just PM Dr Doug, Pleasure Consultant. My usual prescription, however, is just to buy new batteries.

    Big hug
    Doug

    So sorry for your fall, Barry. It sounds really painful and depressing.

    I dont think I am in any position ( literally) to give any advice about not falling but I really hope you feel better soon and that the happy juice is working.

    Love Debbie x
