Geting Back on the Parkies Meds

Finaly coming back to life, but it was a close call. Taken in car while waiting for my Chinese meal to be collected

Thursday 13th Feb 2020

Because I had been missing sifrol for over 2 weeks, the hospital could only describe me a half dose for six days. Should be getting back into my system. Yesterday my new Carousel game with my tablets in.

And last night I took the 1st full tablet on my normal dose of Sifrol, expecting to wake up feeling much better.

But during the night after only a couple of hours sleep, I was in so much pain throughout my body. It would not let me sleep, so I had to get up. I moved about so stiffly, but I had walked a fair bit yesterday to get ny weak legs back.

finally fell asleep in the recliner chair in front of the TV about 4 a.m. This morning. Woke at 7am and waited for the medication alarm to go off at 8 a.m. Then started getting ready for my helper to come and take me out.

I could hardly walk at all. But just needed to get away for a change of scene and some fresh air. This place gets very airless. We went to the Cherry Road nursery for a milkshake, sitting in the outdoor area among all the lovely plants.

The toasted raisin bread did not taste right. This is a problem with the medications at the moment but I was able to pick up some of their fertilizer for my plants, plus some for Frank who has just fixed my bathrom scales today. Shock increase of 4 kilos.Know that is right as the tape said 5cm increase.

We decided that we fancied some Chinese so rang up on the way home,and collected it. I had no sooner eaten some of mine, and I came to bed and went fast sleep for a couple of hours. And here I have stayed quite comfortably for the rest of the day, but my mind feels like my mind. And I am thinking ahead once more.

Then I got a surprise! I have been nominated for a Blog award. More about that later.
