This morning I wake up to find I have one leg like an elephant's! Of course it doesn't hurt because I can't feel a thing. It doesn't look at all nice. How am I going to get my boots on now? It's lymphodema so I've got a specialist coming tomorrow to have a look. It's also been "B" day today. The district nurses have worn me out with their new bowel (and bisacodyl) evacuation regime! Enough said. It just takes a long time! I have been out on Ian - with Sophie on her bike, Sam on his scooter and my mum and Jane walking Evie along. Giles' role was to check I didn't crash, but he was also trying to make me go at full throttle!

Hope you are still ok for a visit in the morning!

Was lovely to chat earlier, hope you get some rest now the district nurses are done with you!!

I love the fact that Giles wanted you to drive fast!

lots of love

I can just see you all now having races around the estate!
Would like to phone you but with the time difference I'm restricted to mornings which I know is a bad time for you.
Thinking of you & always wishing you well.
Love, Karen

Wow, Ian sounds like a bit of a goer! So nice of your friends to bring him up for you.
Sorry to have missed the Sandwich Street reunion - sounds like you had a lovely time.

Busy as ever Katie. Loved the bit about the family outing on wheels! Tell those district nurses to speed up so they don't take up so much of you tie and energy. Do hope the leg problem gets sorted soon. My ugg boots have knitted legs with buttons down the side that say BearPaw - a possibility? Love to you cheery Katie as ever! Pam and Gary

Dear Katie

You remain so brave with all the extra difficulties that crop up and you have to contend with.

By the way , take no nonsense from Giles when you are driving Ian,at the end of the day women are far
better drivers than men and all of us women know that!!!

Love Andrea

Thinking of you....with your lovely blonde locks and all the family around you. The family outing must have made for a lovely site in Jasmine drive. Hope the spring in the air is lifting your spirits, and that despite hurdles you continue to play music, go on outings, see your friends, keep smiling...
