Mid-morning, Neill, the engineer looks after our alarm systems, came and installed a basic alarm system to my lounger chair. I now merely need to knock it and hear the recorded voice offering me the choice of going up or going down First impressions, on using this new simplified control system, is that it will […]

I had a problem getting up this morning. The two young girls who was sent round to shower and dress me were very competent and polite but no one simply not strong enough to allow me to relax and know I would come to no harm. Instructions from them to ‘hold on’ or ‘lean back’or […]

Another Tuesday when I could have gone to the golf club but unfortunately Smiler was on his way home from Wale, so was not available to take me. The good Dr Michael will be with us this time next week, so, depending upon the weather, I might get there then. When we changed over hoists, […]

Following on from yesterday’s entry about dying, there have been subtle changes in the attitude of people around me which point to the fact that they too accept that my time might be nigh.

With all this talk of anxiety and the need to medicate me against it, I wondered why, after living it with the consequences of MND, for five years or so, I should now find myself anxious, or worrying about it whenever the question arose. I suppose it was because when I was diagnosed I read […]

A personal problem many elderly people have to deal with is incontinence. If one is a prisoner in a wheelchair with little or no use of his hands then there are entirely reliant on others to assist. them. I’m glad to say that I have a excellent control over my bladder since my radical prostatectomy […]

According to the night carer I had the best nights sleep yet. In effect I was heavily sedated so the outcome was not surprising. From about lunchtime on yesterday, for no apparent reason, I felt agitated. I could not get comfortable; I could not scratch an itch; I could not get myself in the right […]

Sleeping well. Whether this is the result of adding the second anxiety pill or not I cannot tell except that I certainly feel very wearily most of the time and I can only put this down to be slightly sedated by my medication. Also, I seem to dream more than I did previously. Last night, […]

Enough of birthdays. To conclude with some prose ( or is it a poem?) from that good Dr. Michael, celebrating our long friendship. Mark, Thanks again for last Saturday, your birthday, and so much more. Perhaps you did not see, my entry that day, in your visitor’s book. “To celebrate life and a life”. Well […]

Yesterday, I asked the question, what do you give a man who has everything? To give you an idea. I mentioned one or two of the clever idea is that my family and friends came up with. From’ my lovely’ was the baby aquarium and as I sit here I can see Goldie and Wander […]
