    Lynne:
    Given your extremely slow progression your hubby has many years fiddling ahead of him. From what I have read you and he can extract great quality of life for a good while.
    He probably knows Planxty. In my mind the finest Irish traditional group of all time. Andy Irvine's West Coast of Clare is the greatest melody ever written.

    Sounds good Tim. Your wife sounds a bit like me in wanting to do everything. It winds my husband up. But in trying to do everything that I can I am looking after him too. He's never been good at managing household things. That's bills, housework and managing time. If he has too much stress he is not pleasant to be near. So it's in both our interests for him not to take too much of a burden until he has to. I'm very worried about that point in time. If I'm unable then to communicate and I'm not mobile he is likely to be in a constant bad mood. I'm trying to prepare him bit by bit. I encourage him to go out to music sessions. His passion is playing Irish Traditional music on his fiddle and with friends. He always comes back in a great mood. I hope that it's many years down the line when the issues I spoke about will be happening.

    It is just a bad time at my Dentist and they haven't got the time.

    He is a nice chap that is almost a friend but it takes a long time to do anything in my mouth because of water or anything causes me to choke and I have to swallow so often.

    Mouth wash is a good idea Ellie and I do use it in the shower but have to be careful of mess if not.

    Hi Terry,

    I can sympathise as I had a similar experience a few months ago. Why is it that your tongue always catches the sharp edge? I’m pleased you got an emergency appointment. When you are in the chair ask the dentist to sort the filling out at the same time. I did and she was very obliging as they know how difficult it is for us to attend clinic.

    Good job you have the tube. If you can tolerate a salt mouth rinse or an antibacterial mouthwash to kill the lurgies, it's probably wise to do so.

    Good luck tomorrow. Onwards & upwards!

    good idea Ellie;

    but the bit has gone missing and it was a side bit that has gone leaving a white filling that is very sharp and making my side back of tongue sore. I have an appointment for tomorrow to take the sharpness off.

    It's OK if I don't move my tongue, not so much of a problem for men.

    So it's feeding tube feeding for me.

    Love Terry

    Hi Terry

    It sounds like its become a bit of an emergency now to me, maybe your dentist can get you in much sooner then the 21st, which seems like a long wait away.

    Try to avoid cold things if possible, and good luck I hope your dentist can make it better quickly for you.

    Do you have the bit of tooth? You can try sticking it on with dental cement from the pharmacy - it's for emergencies like this.

    Otherwise it'll be saucers of milk for you

    Love Ellie.

    Tooth saga?

    25th April, I wrote this:-

    Still I have been getting my spirits up until about a week ago my tooth had a great pain and a few days after that I had my toe nail cutting into my toe. Still went to dentist yesterday and he cured the problem, well until half way through my dinner that night.

    And this:- PS:- Dentist appointment 21st May unless I can't eat or it is painful

    This morning, I found a large hard bit in my breakfast, it was over half a piece of that tooth, dam. Not painful, YET but quite sensitive to cold and no appointment till next Wednesday with my dentist and it would be hard for me to see anyone else.

    Love Terry

    My wife seems to be coping very well, her emotional liability is now under control thanks to the citolpalm drops so she isn't crying these days, well not normally, but when we visit the daughter and her family the tears flow for a little while, she is totally incomprehensible in speech but still writes everything down and says she want to live long enough to see the grandchildren grow up, I think that's what drives her on the most. she still trying to do all she can but tires fairly quickly and has to stop for frequent short rests but refuses to just sit down and give in. We don't sit down and talk about her mnd exactly but we do talk about it in round about way.
    As her career and fully employed ( although my doctor has signed me off with stress at the moment ) , I do find it difficult, but at least she is still with us and hopefully in years to come she will still be here to watch the grandkids grow to adulthood.
    Ok that's me over for now
    All the best
    Tim

    Hi;

    Yes Granddad did say about having a ice cream but it is quite hard for me to eat much and keep clean.

    Sorry to mention food at drink, chimp.

    It was lovely day, we talked? for an hour at home, I was remembering some of my bike camping holiday around Iceland back in 1981.

    Then we went to costa and had a coffee and half a sausage roll.

    I did look up the fort at Felexstowe the day before and had a little look at that but I needed the loo so had to go out. The port area is at the same place and a lovely viewing area. THe water and beach there look so nice and relaxing but I was hungry and we got a pizza, not Italian and ate it on the pier. That to was relaxing and the water was so calm, unlike when I used to swim in it. Followed by the best bitter shandy and a walk? along the promenade and meet a chap that lives two door away from me.

    Not bad, love Terry

    I see you got back to us - you must have behaved as Grandad didn't ship you off somewhere.

    Hope you get to Duxford soon.

    I'd an afternoon in a nearby park yesterday and managed not to end up in the pond. But I did have to watch longingly as my carer ate a 99...

    Love Ellie.

    Granddad said about going to Southwold which is a lovely place but it is further and more hassle there so I thought that might be a bit much for him to keep local.

    I quite like Felixstowe, I used to swim there along the coast.

    Not going to the container dock area so I won't be locked up unless I get arrested.

    I sometimes thought what they would do with us if we went to prison, we would probably get treated better.

    Just a thought, love terry

    You know Dominos pizza is not real pizza Treborose. I don't what that red sauce is on top but it not real marinara sauce, it gives us Italians agita.

    If I was Grandad I'd pull a sicky too not eat that stuff, I'd stick with coffee at Costa....just saying LOL

    Love you

    Hmmm, Felixstowe - whose idea was that??

    If you're not back online on Friday, we'll know you've been put in a shipping container and are on a slow boat to China

    Love Ellie.
