I'm back in the great land of Bloggers.

Four months in hospital, nearly lost a foot and half a leg. What a way to lose weight, down from 170kg to 110kg. Why don't I lose weight from the backside instead of the boobs and face and let's not talk about the bingo wings.

I've had to learn to  walk again.  That is frightening. Not to bad with a walker in front but between wooden rails with no safety net, eek then more eek when you have to walk sideways.  I am getting better but can't stand for any length of time and I''m not supposed to be on the computer.

All of you were in my thoughts.  My hair is now almost gone but I'm hoping it will decide to remember where it lives and come back.

I can never thank my nephew enough for looking after the Ice Bear. Riding his push bike morning and night to check the house and feed the wee beast. 

I must close now before I close my eyes and fall on the keyboard.  I will be back soon. Love to you all.

I am so very glad to hear from you - and equally sorry you have had such a rough time of it.

I am also very glad to see you here again, but so sorry for what you have been through. Keep practising with the walking but don't over-tire yourself.
I was thinking of you just yesterday, wondering if I should send an email.

This appearing has made my morning.
You've been through quite a lot and hopefully there won't be a repeat.

Aha! There you are, dear JahTeh, popping up again in a sidebar of another blog I follow. Reading between the lines, it appears you've taken the tour of modern medicine and went ashore at every port. Been there, done that -- and please believe me, recovery at our age does takes exactly the brand of stubborn persistence and good humor you possess. Celebrate each step forward (but don't attempt steps backward. Trust me.)

Love to you and the nephew JahTeh! I'm so sorry you've been going through this
