A bit of a catch up

Hello everyone so sorry I have been absent for way too long, partly to not being 100% partly due to writers block, but I am pleased to say that I am starting to get back on track.  After my accident I was left with an extreme amount of pain which hey ho I have been working at and we are starting to get that back under control as well.  However a week last Thursday I received a copy of a letter from the Hospital after my last Consultants appointment in February which to all intent and purposes was a copy of a letter sent to my GP.

That letter confirmed that I have for the best part got all the nasties under control however there was a PS on the bottom of the letter indicating to the Dr that after the last round of blood tests it appeared that I was extremely low in Vitamin D and could they please prescribe high dose vitamin D medication as quickly as possible.  The appointment was at the end of February, the transcription was dealt with on the 5 April, and according to the envelope the letter was sent out on 7 April and was delivered to me on 10 April.

Accordingly the following day I rang the surgery and explained I had received the letter and the contents and asked if the GP would be able to deal with the same and the Receptionist indicated that she would get the GP to come back to me, which he did but he could not prescribe as he had not received a letter confirming this.  I subsequently arranged to go to the Surgery that evening and arrange an appointment with the Receptionist, I had a prescription to pick up in any event and arranged to drop a copy of the letter off for the Doctor to look at.  

Subsequently I have seen the Doctor and I have been popped on the medication.  All I can say is what a difference a little pill has made to me.  A lot of the discomfort I was experiencing the toothache in the bones and especially in my hips and lower back, the general bruised feeling I had has subsided - I still have some pain in the lower back but I a moving a little more easily than I was doing and my energy levels seem to be a little better I had felt constantly fatigued and my get up and go had got up and gone.  As a result I have not been able to do as much at home which has really been frustrating me and I have not been able to concentrate on my needlework and craft work so  I have just rested for a change and have simply just taken some time out  to "simply be" which I have not found easy.

However the trees are in blossom the sap is rising its lovely to see sunshine (which apparently I have to expose myself to on a more regular basis) as this is the vitamin I am low on vitamin D otherwise known as the sunshine vitamin.  Apparently if we do not get enough of this vitamin it affects the auto immune system, how your body absorbs calcium which we all need for our bones and our general well being.

Thank you for all your good wishes and messages  it is much appreciated and I am getting there hopefully this post will be a return to normal service!

Love and light to everyone

Catch up soon

    1. Thanks Pam. I am under instructions from the GP to get out into the sun more - I am not normally good with the sun though so it is like a double edged sword, but I am going to do as I am told.

      Take care
