Just back from the results of my MRI and there is no sign of a stroke. Hurrah!. For the last few days I haven't been driving while waiting for the results. I have realised that the quality of our life would change immeasurably if I didn't drive. In fact I don't know how we would manage. Last week I had to wait for people to be either going my way or out of theirs! Just for a bottle of milk or a birthday present or the animal food or...... I could go on !
I realised that our trips to Cornwall would happen less as I share the driving with D and drop him off at various places, making the trip go smoother and saving huge parking fees. As a (almost) non-drinker I am happy to drive when we go out, which we do often. If I didn't drive D. would have to take the pledge !
And as for shopping. I go with D. as little as possible as I like to have a dash round and he likes to take his time.
So It's back to almost normal and the independent lifstyle that I love.
( I was a bit dissapointed that the results were purely about the possible stroke and not the inner ear stuff, but I guess time will tell on that one)
I'm about to go out into the sun and do a spot of pea, blackcurrant and raspberry picking now, as I'm still on a bit of a go-slow.
ISN'T LIFE GOOD??!!
Back with a more coherant post later.
Many, many thanks for your best wishes and thoughts
