    Hey after yesterday’s health scare, a ringing phone is the least of my worries. At least it focussed my mind!!
    Oh & don’t have answer phone on purpose, as Mum used to think it was me & not a messaging service! I leave the rest to your imagination.......

    You really have to have an amazing sense of humour with this disease!!

    Very sorry to hear about your DVT - on top of everything else! Good that you paid attention to it and got it diagnosed. Hope the meds/elevation etc clear it quickly.

    3 to 6 months I’ve been told, so learning to take a bit more care of myself!
    Thank you for your kind thoughts. A wake up call really to balance life a little better in my own favour.
    The positive side is have had a lovely day with our daughter, & planning more special times together. Also OH & I ate making time for each other - have let family relationships slip a little ( a lot !!!) while sorting Mum & Dad out. Getting life’s balances back a little now.

    Take care yourself

    @DesperateofDevon Sometimes our bodies have to take extreme measures to remind us of these things! :) Keep it up (as well as your leg! ;))
