...hey all... just little ol’ me again... yet another boring update for you all... I managed to walk about 40 Metres in the gym with two people walking beside me but not helping in any way whatsoever... it was such hard work believe me... I think that it may be quite a few months before I walk like I used to before though... a slow recovery but an eventual outcome regardless...

...we’re selling our beautiful home of 40 something years and moving to Swansea in NSW which is about 2 hours away to the Central Coast... I am being moved from the Penrith Nepean Hospital to the Hunter Hospital near Newcastle sometime this week... we’re downsizing big time... (you don’t realise how much junk you own until you have to get rid of it)... ha ha!... to be honest... I will be unable to maintain our currant gardens in the home that we’re in now... I love my gardens... I’d rather hand it over to someone else that will be able to look after them rather than see them overrun with weeds and die...

...back to my progress... I’m talking with more clarity... enough to be involved with people in full conversations and good enough to be able to shit- stir people again thank God... my right hand/arm and leg are moving a bit more luckily... I’m able to put weight on my right leg enough to be able to walk some steps again at last...but as I said before... it’ll probably be about a year or more before I’m in full mode again but I’m patient and determined enough...

...my right hand and arm are moving a lot better now but are not working good enough to help me in daily life enough yet but they will... I’m that determined enough of course... anyway... enough about me...

...”Dancing with Stars”...I hope that Constance wins... “Bachelor in Paradise”... female Alex... what a wingey bitch she is... I hope that she goes soon... Bill is a total dick flop... I really don’t give a shit on who “falls in love” or not to tell the truth... ha ha!... yes... I’m still watching trash TV... and I still can’t stand “Hughsey”... until next time... cheers.

So good to hear of your progress Mr. Sticky. Keep up the good work, and all the best with your move.

I'm now 5 months post toe op, and it's just about coming together. Still sore, but not as sore. Just managed to get my old faithful Doc. Martens on which I couldn't do two weeks ago. Back to the specialist next week. Have read on line the pain actually gets better round about 6 - 9 months. Crazy to think it would have fully recovered after about three weeks to a month!

great to read your news and about your progress Mr S 🌷
Downsizing from a home of 40 years must be hard ... we went through it with inlaws moving up to Orange a few years ago ... made me look at some of our “stuff” with a more realistic eye. Our boys aren’t going to want it.
Totally agree with you about Alex N ... cant be gone from my screen soon enough ... not that invested with this group except for the ones I can’t stand ...like the lying Bill.
Dancing With The Stars - have enjoyed this series very much. Was a lot better once ‘the dancing praying mantis’ was gone - who was voting for him!?! Pretty sure they changed the rules to have the judges make final decision just to avoid him staying when other better dancers were being eliminated - thank goodness!
Am watching BBCan7 and whilst its not the best BBCan I am still hooked 🙃

Take care Mr S 🌻

Oh well done @Mr Stickyfingers
It is wonderful to see you here and to hear of your progress

Most important though........ Can you do anything preventative? No more strokes for you please.

Agree with your RTV assessments, Alex N is repulsive.......but I love BP, silly fluff is good after work.....and it is almost wholesome compared with 9/7 RTV concepts, they just make dirty and mean TV

Have you watched Schitts Creek? My favourite comedy right now, Canadian and very droll

Feeling sad.

Three weeks ago someone dumped three tiny kittens at the pagoda. Palm sized, one month old kittens. As luck would have it, someone had abandoned a mama cat with her five kittens only a few weeks earlier. Her own were eating solid food, so I kidnapped Katy and took her and the three little ones home to my place. All was well except the biggest kept dominating Katy's milk and I could see the runt (Tiny) falling behind. So I started giving Tiny one on one time with Katy in the bedroom to try and beef her up.

Anyway it turned out Katy had dried up. The kitties did eat some raw and canned food for a while but then just stopped eating. Feeding them cat formula by syringe is very hard, because they hate the syringe on their mouths and actively reject it. So, as you can imagine, one by one I lost them, the last one today. I buried them in the new palms on my balcony. Wish I could have done better for them, it breaks my heart, and makes me angry that people can just dump helpless kittens like that in the first place. At least wait until they are old enough to eat solid food, they stand no chance otherwise. :(

That is so sad. Good on you for trying. It must have been awful for you 😔

Thanks guys. I try not to get too close to the pagoda kitties and certainly avoid bringing them home, but these girls would not have lasted two days if I'd left them there, and having a feeding mama available was a gift that could have clinched it for the babies, but it was not to be. Anyway they had 2-3 weeks with a doting stand-in mama that they would not have had otherwise so I am glad they got to enjoy a little life and love even if only for a short time. And it was a pleasure to have them here.
 
I understand that telling yourself to stop believing your over-magnified thoughts might help? On the other side looking back can often feel like a more reasonable place. That's not intended to sound rude or condescending, and by all means feel free to ignore if irrelevant. Some possibly useful stuff here and shouting yourself a warm drink might help you to stop it (FYI Did not mean Gluhwein....On this occassion!) 🙂

Thank you. That did help.

I'm not OK. I'm feeling very insecure and I'm beating myself up and I want it to stop
That's no good, and it's hard to turn your head off when you're feeling like that. Hope you're feeling better soon.
When I worry excessively, I have learned to tell myself to think of something positive, live for the moment and don't think of anything beyond the moment. It's taken me a long time to get there, but I was a terrible what if-er, and invent all sorts of problems which never ever eventuated. It's a total waste of energy, but it's is really hard to stop when it get's a hold of your thoughts.
