Hello everyone, just to let you know that I am okay after the endoscopy procedure yesterday. Thank you all for your good wishes and throughts. I opted for sedation on top of the anaesthesia they use on the back of my throat - I was awake throughout the whole procedure and behaved myself - I told them I was very nervous and they were brilliant with me. I have a hiatus hernia and reflux which is causing the problem with me swallowing my food which gets stuck midway in my oesophagus. They have assured me that this should be treatable with medication and I have to go back to clinic in August to see how I am doing and the full report. The procedure has left me very sleepy though.
It has been a busy sad and very moving day as the mum of my friends Jackie, John and Caroline was cremated today. Her instructions were that she wanted a celebration of her life and she left a gift for everyone who attended - her famous meatball recipe which is absolutely delicious. So it has been a mixed day but one of the loveliest funerals that I have been to if one can say that of a funeral. It was very much a celebration of a very much missed lady - Beattie.
I am now going up ther wooden stairs to Bedfordshire to get some much needed shuteye.
Hope you are all okay wherever you may be. Will catch up soon promise.
Hugs to you all
