    Phew!

    I was just about clip the snow fairy's wings. I was obviously not looking out of the window at the precise second the precious flake fluttered to earth.

    You are forgiven.

    Hi fuddle Never mind what all the letters mean it's what they are for that counts. If you watch Casualty you will hear the doctors ask for them for every patient.

    The are the standard tests they ask for. We all have them done every year.
    They have tested your kidney function, your liver function, they iron in your blood, and your blood glucose. They are the cheapest and easiest to do. They pick up diabetes often, anaemia and a few other things we may have that often don't show. Any problems they do the more expensive specific tests. If you are seeing a doctor at a clinic you will have these regularly. Nothing to worry about.

    Just one needle and 3 little bottles from the one. It is not as much as lit looks. I have these every six weeks. They get the results in less than an hour but I expect at your GPs they send them to the hospital to do the tests.

    I have been to see the Macmillan lady she is filling it all in and they will contact my doctor or the hospital. She says she can see no reason why I should not get it and I will be £83 a week better off and I will come in for more benefits.

    Monna we had your weather yesterday it is bight sunshine today.

    Phew, just got locked out of the forum with this message:

    'Your password is 4166 days old, and has therefore expired.
    Please change your password using this page."

    I couldn't make it believe my old password. Once you are locked out you can't even rejoin. Luckily it accepted my password from the keychain (Apple) and I managed to get in again.

    I never realised how much I would miss the four threads I read.

    I got locked out as well with similar message and had to change my password twice before it would let me back in.

    I got the same message but with a lot more days.

    I think there is something wrong as I had to login again to reply. I thought I would get locked out because when you are not expecting it you are not ready with a new password. Then I had to find a pen to write the new one down. I hope it will let me back into the old format as the new one is too bright. It also tends to show me posts from over a year ago.

    I was a bit wary about doing a new password as foxy was saying it wasn't secure, I notice there is no padlock on the address bar but am not sure if it has ever been there.

    Missed loads of posts in all my fav threads. Been in hospital with an adrenal crisis, just got home teatime and still feeling wobbly. All due to that bl00dy infusion I had for osteoporosis on Wed. If you get offered it then think hard!
    Woke with absolutely hellish back pain and shaking so much I couldn't stop it. Tried to go and make a HWB and slid to the floor, couldn't get up. The RV called ambulance and they took my BP then plonked me into a chair and asked if we wanted to go up the road (Edinburgh Royal) or down the road (Borders General Slaughterhouse) We both yelled EDINBURGH
    Ended up in resuss and injected full of steroids. Phew. Spent a nice day and night in there. Got home tonight teatime but def don't feel much like myself yet.
    Oh and the first thing the RV said to me when he collected me was how much less elect he had used when I wasn't in the house

    Mar! Ruddy Nora woman. We had no idea. I hate that it happened to you. Swift action by everyone but only because it was dire. Oh I am angry Mar. I hope RV is ok too. That must have been a bit of a shock for him. Us women can cope but I do worry about the men folk. Oh mar. Behave. Be well x

    Are you sure it was not cutting the steroids mar? Here was I thinking the infusion would be for me. Anyway it was not necessary as my osteoporosis has improved.

    I finally got the prescription filled that I have had in my pocket since the 15 January, today. Just vit D.

    Have a good rest mar would you like me to send you some books?

    DD has only been in Malta a couple of years, before that 4 years Saudi, 4 years, Libya (yes they were caught up in the war),they bought their flat in Malta while in Libya, before that, 3 years in Venezuela, before that DD did two tours in Morocco, and SiL one tour they met there so not sure how long either of them were there.

    Oh no mar, while we were all changing passwords you were entertaining medics. Don't do this to us! We are much too old to be given frights like that. You look after yourself, d'you hear? Even better, let the RV look after you. By candlelight if he is getting touchy over electricity.

    Every one seems to have expired today. Some are being put back on the new format, to their annoyance.
    Like everyone else I was told that my present password was invalid - well, I suppose it would be if we had expired. I just hope I will be able to remember new one.

    There is something going on at the top. We've had disappearing threads, apostrophes being replaced by strings of numbers and now all the passwords expiring on the same day. What next?
