hello Sylvia and all those on the thread,
I am off for a colonoscopy this morning. The prep has been pretty awful but looking forward to knowing if there is an issue in my bowel. CT showed thickening. Also having bone scan in a week or so, MO following up muscle issues on chest wall. He has mentioned osteonecrosis (from the radiation). The journey goes on....
we still have little to no COVID action and I have not heard of the Indian variant in Australia. My husband and I are scheduled for astra vaccination soon. As doctor advised get it ASAP. If there were to be an outbreak here it would spread like wildfire because social distancing in many places is a thing of the past. If and when we do get an outbreak getting the vaccine will be difficult. We both had our flu shots so have to wait the two weeks.
I am pleased to here things are somewhat better in the UK. It has been a long and difficult road for you. I really don’t think COVID will be resolved for very long time if at all.
It is a beautiful time of year here. We are planned to go camping with our son tomorrow for two nights. My last camp before it gets too cold. Hopefully the weather will hold.
Must get moving for my appointment. Will send more news soon.
I do hope you are all going well.
