Hi Triff, 

Yes I am still around but do not get on the forum much these days.Took me several days to find this thread on the new layout.

We had a long cold, icy winter. I had to put on YakTrax just to take my dog out in the yard - solid ice covered with snow.

I am just now getting over a cold not helped by allergies, but otherwise doing pretty good. Better then everyone else here on the forum, sounds like has been rough for you and others.

My pulmonary doc is pleased with how I am doing. He says looking at my x-ray and CT Scan and looking at me seem to be 2 different people.. He says unless life or death he does not want to see me on any prednisone as already have thin bones. So far has not come to that.

Take care and hope you feel better.

Hi Just a wee check n to say services are being arranged for me and it feels like a railway station with so many people arriving.Its mainly voluntary due to to the state of the finances at public hospitals

Hope you all are getting along on your varied journeys step by step

Hi Triff,

Sounds like things are coming together regarding servers you need. Hope it all works out as planned.

Our weather is still a yoyo, mostly cool and wet. The farmers can not even get their crops planted as their fields are still very wet or under water from all the rains.

Take care......sue

Wish I could help you in some way. I hope you're going to get better soon.  Is it going to be winter or summer in your hemisphere?

I've been riding a lot, have been drowned a few times in the rain.  Just like ripping up the asphalt on two wheels again.  About the only enjoyment left in life.

Keep us informed of your progress ok??

Two year CT Scan today, well an hour ago.  Friday see the chemo doctor that is leaving me ;(, for a different hospital.  Damn, she was awesome to work with.  Anyway, that is all for now.  After I pee away some of this contrast fluid they made me drink this am twice, I'm going to go out in the rain later.  Its been dim outside all week.  If I take the car, nothing, if I take the bike, then I get caught in a downpour 5 miles from home ;p  Haha, a couple of times this month I've come home and just stripped down for the washing machine.

Next time I'll take shampoo with me for me ;D  Cheers mates. Love everybody and cross your fingers for a good CT reading.

Hi Rich, 

Hope your CT scan come out with only positive results and a good visit with your doc. Sorry she is moving on but hope you do not need more chemo so will not be an issue.

On this new forum they do not have bookmarks, at least have not found the heading, so I have it  in my bar across top of laptop, outside of the forum, but goes right to you.

Take care.......... sue

Thanks sweetie ;D  Just about all browsers use CTRL+ D to bookmark anywhere on the interweb, that was what I meant.  This site is pretty basic for a site in the 21st century ;p

Be well

Rich, 

Before they changed things on the right used to be able to hit the little down arrow to get bookmarks - I can not find that anymore so did it my own way.

Hope for 2 good reports.

Happy biking.......sue
