    Papworth visit

    Today we took a trip to Papworth for my pulmonary assessment. I was impressed with the staff who were so considerate and explained everything. Good news is that despite having copd, my results were all good so I don’t have to go back for 3 months. Tomorrow is Addenbrooks for second opinion (though really I think it’s just a confirmation). Life is certainly busy since my diagnosis!

    That's a big vote of confidence for you Karen 👍👍

    Hope Addenbrookes are as nice tomorrow as Papworth were. xx

        Than you Ellie, I was so pleased because it confirmed moving away from a busy main road has made a difference and I am so well aware of the massive impact a chest infection can have on me now. Here’s hoping about tomorrow 🤞🏻🤞🏻Xx

          Another good trip to a hospital today without the mega long wait to be seen 😊. ALS confirmed and all care now moved to Addenbrooks which I am pleased about. Rather than getting down about it we went to Scottsdale’s garden centre and bought plants. Had a go on one of their electric scooters and loved having some independence back. Have told family no more tears we must enjoy life as much as we can.

              That attitude will serve you well Karen - today you are living with ALS, not dying with ALS. 😘🤗
