    Can you call for an update or to speed up appointments?

    How are your pain levels? Your mood sounds really flat.... Would that be a fair description?

    Pain is just a part of me now. I've had the hospital onto to me (where I'm have my colonoscopy) and they wanted to know if I've tested positive for MRSA. And they asked also if I have a latex allergy. She then said that she wasn't sure which one trumped the other and would need to call me again. MRSA patients need to be last on the list and latex patients need to be first. But my appointment is for 7 am so I guess latex trump's everything else.
    Gerry got a voucher for a restaurant from a customer. It was for 50 Euro, and we were going to use it ourselves, but he asked if I would like to ask my sisters to lunch. We had our lunch together on Friday, and we discovered that it's the first time we've been all together since mum passed away. It was lovely. Totally and utterly lovely. We stayed talking until it got dark and then said goodbye.
    My sister Sarah, who has 3 children (2 adults and a teenager), has had a lot to deal with recently. Her middle son who is now 20 years old, has been stealing from her. In the past, he ran up a bill on a porn site of 700 Euro. He promised to pay it all back, but hasn't paid a penny of it. Recently (in the last 2 or 3 months) he has been transferring money from her current account onto a revolute (prepaid debit card). In total he has taken over 4,000 Euro. No I didn't make a mistake, it is really over 4,000 Euro. When I found out, I thought it was "only" just over 1,000 and I tried to help out by buying coal and getting it delivered to her house. I was with her another day and she was filling her car, so I skipped in and paid for it too. Now I'm making up a hamper for her with a few treats for Christmas for her. She has a wonderful heart and reminds me of my mum so much. She would never in her life take anything from anyone without paying them back. She is so upset.

    Holy cow, that lad sounds pretty wayward. Does he have his own job? Your sister is going to have to change her banking passwords. How can he do that to his own mother?

    Sorry to hear about the pain lovely, but I'm glad you've heard from the hospital. When are you going in?
    What a wonderful thing for Gerry to do with that voucher. That sounds like such a special time to have spent with them. I'm so glad you had that time.
    Sounds like he needs to be taught to respect his Mum! That's outrageous behaviour...

    I brought my sister into Galway this morning. She had arranged to meet our brother for a coffee. Her husband needed the car, and she was going to take the bus. We had a lovely morning. We did a little shopping before we had coffee.
    I try to get Aisling something as a surprise each year for Christmas. Last year I bought her a piece of jewelry, but when I asked her if she'd like some more jewelry this year she told me no. But every time we go to a music shop, she heads straight for the vinyls. So today I bought her a record player and a copy of Queen's greatest hits. I just have to keep it hidden until I get it wrapped up.

    I got my booster shot of moderna on Saturday. I hadn't any side effects from my first two doses, but this time, I'm feeling dreadful. I've a stinking headache and a temp of about 38. I also feel like my glands in my neck and under arm are swollen.

    Gerry and I put a hamper together for my sister. We put all goodies like biscuits and chocolates, whiskey, Bailey's and some bottles of coke and orange. We also put in some tea and coffee and other bits and pieces. She was delighted with it when she come over this morning.

    I feel for you. I had a pretty crappy reaction to my booster too - I had astra-zeneca the first 2, and then pfizer this booster.
    I hope you're resting and pacing as you are...

    What a lovely present for your sister! That's so kind!
