Hi Emma

Oh you poor thing. I do empathise with your feeling frustrated and it is only natural that you might feel like saying (but didn't), "ok then" - don't feel bad about that. We can't be superhuman all the time (although I reckon about 99.9% of the time we are).

Let's hope the steroids perk Jon up.

Enjoy your glass (or 2) of wine this evening - you deserve it!!!

Lots of love

Hi Emma,

I feel just the same at the moment. It's almost like one step forward and two steps back.

I am really struggling with pain in my back because the Celiac nerve is trapped and I'm waiting to have an injection to kill the nerve. I'm on stronger Morphine dosage which is playing havoc with my stomach, so I'm not eating much and just basically sleeping most of the day. Yet three or four weeks ago, I felt as fit as a butchers dog, but now the dog seems to have run away and I'm left with shattered old bones.

I'm sure once I get my injection ....I hope....I'll be fine, but right now I'm finding it very hard to do basic things like having a daily walk around my block of houses.
