Thankyou for all your concerns and thoughts for me. I have been unwell (again) I had my feet checked and they are ok I just have to keep an eye on them. I have had blood in my mouth for a while now and have seen a specialist, now I am on the waiting list to have the camera put down to see what is going on there. I am having trouble with my right eyesight and have had a pile of tests done for that but have not had the results back for that yet. I am aching all over and can not sleep. My blood pressure is high and have now started blood pressure tablets. But apart from all of that I still have a smile on my face and just take things day by day, thankyou once again hearing from you all keeps me smiling.

Hi Narelle! Nice to hear from you! Just wanted to let you know the camera thing is a relatively simple procedure. I've had 3 already. I love the position they put you in for the test as I am a stomach sleeper!! They make you lay down on your stomach one leg up and one leg down! Your completely out for the duration so if you have no issues with the anesthesia you should be all set! Glad to see you still smiling!! I haven't been able to do that lately! Hope you get great news back from your tests! I'll be thinking about you my friend!! Ellen :/

Hey Tassie, just saw this conversation, have been away for just over a week myself with some health issues. My son and DIL took me to the Shetlands (Island off the North of Scotland) had washing and housework to do since I came back, hope everything goes ok with you and you get your eyesight sorted out I know only too well what that feels like. Give my regards to T and SB. LOL XXX

Good to hear from you, Narelle. Sounds like you have lots going on right now, so let's just keep thinking positive thoughts and wait for your test results. Al's description of swallowing the camera is s reassuring one! Glad you can still smile and enjoy the new pup.

Just want you to know that I'm thinking of you and praying that test results and next test turns out fine. Try to stay positive and keep smiling my friend.

I swallowed the camera recently, and all I remember is being wheeled in for the procedure and waking up afterwards. No discomfort or awareness while it was happening. I'm just glad it wasn't a 35mm SLR film camera like the one I used to have!!! Hopefully, this will be behind you soon as you move on to more pleasant episodes in life. I pray all goes well !

It's times like this that I wish distance did not separate us
It is so important to have those that care close.
While we touch each other lives in our written word
and hearts extended…
The glance of love, hands that help and a visit
can not be replaced…
So Narelle In my heart I wish I could be there

I am glad you have a new baby to bring joy
Each one of mine have such different personalities
that they lift my spirits daily

I did have some eyesight trouble when my body
was adjusting to being on medicine
I woke up suddenly and my glasses did not work
This was an overnight thing and scary
Two weeks later they returned to normal.
Diabetes has so much fall out with other things going wrong
I know it may not be that simple
Please let us know the results of all your doctors visits
I am anxious to hear your news

All Love to You
