Cowart's Common Room

I am having a bad dose of the collywobbles today, have to see the trauma and spinal injuries consultant today for my MRI scan results, I should have gone to see him 2 weeks ago, but I absconded, and went to play at the Malvern Flower Show instead with Elizabeth and Milla.

Unusually for me I am filled with this over whelming sense of foreboding, and am very scared - just feel like my luck is running out, a feeling that wasn't helped by the fact they diagnosed I also now have a wonky thyroid at my last Diabetes check up this month. Just feels like all the wheels are falling off.

Send me some positive vibes if you can muster a few - I am in danger of turning into a snivelling wreck!

Do hope you're not really falling apart. Shocked

And do you know what lies at the bottom of the ocean and quivers? A nervous wreck. LaughingLaughingRolling Eyes Truly hope you aren't going there, physically or metaphorically.

Tiggywinkle's Avatar Zoe, You are on my prayer list, and admire your tenacity in the face of coping with your unfair share of awful illness over the past few years. I just wish I could wave a wand over you, and banish it all. I am not surprised you are fearful, and will be thinking of you today. The best of luck and let us know how you get on. xxxxx

Westerwitch's Avatar Hah you don't do snivelling wreck - we know that - but hey it is more than ok to have big wobbles now and again - you have been through a lot.

Happy to tell you all, my worst fears were not founded, and the loss of feeling in my feet etc, is due to more degeneration and nerve compression, rather than the emergence of secondaries. Huge relief here. Very HappyVery HappyVery Happy

Decided against any further treatment at this stage - body is still recovering from the last lot in January, and to be honest, there are no guarantees the numbness/pain can be reversed, so cant see the point of major invasive surgery, when its unlikely to solve the problem. They will keep an eye on it, and a referal to a neuro surgeon is being made just to be sure which way forward. My preference will emain as it has been the past 6 years - 12 weekly day unit trips for the sense of humour top ups and just learn to live with it.

Thank you all so much for the vibes, and sorry for being such a baby, it helped me a lot to know you were thinking of me. XX

Preseli Mags's Avatar I was thinking of you as I was planting cucumber plants in my (really hot) polytunnel this afternoon. I'm glad to hear that the news was good. Don't apologise, you weren't a baby at all! It's lovely to be able to help - even if it's just by thinking positive thoughts. xx

Toady's Avatar There that's brilliant!!

Posted by: Toady on 21st May 2010 at 05:59PM

Tiggywinkle's Avatar Thank God, Zoe. Have been like a hen on a hot griddle hopping in and out here watching for news. Try to relax and enjoy the Summer in your garden and allotment, and you anything but a baby, you silly goose. You are an example of tremendous courage to all of us.

Posted by: Tiggywinkle on 21st May 2010 at 07:18PM

Well, mixed feelings about the news. No surgery is good news; degenerative diseases are not good news. They are "high nuisance value."

And worst of all, you've said this publicly, so we all know you're a degenerate. Rolling Eyes (Well, not really; Bear is just being playful.)

More Purple Bear Hugs coming your way!

Arosebyanyothername's Avatar Been off line most of the day (and collecting Fennie friom Rodez airport) so read your plea for vibes too late. Glad to hear they weren't needed. Big hug anyway.

Mollygolver's Avatar Zoe - so pleased the news was good. You are certainly not a baby - which one of us wouldn't have been scared. See - purple vibes DO work Very Happy
