Much the same health wise - I'm having more spasms and a lot of issues typing because it's set my CRPS off, so my apologies for not being around much. Now more stressed too - my GI doctor had me get another ECG a few weeks ago to look at my QT interval, which has been prolonged for several years and has been a big barrier to me trying a particular med for my gastroparesis. I had to see my GP today and he had a copy of the results - though neither of us knows yet whether my GI dr and cardiologist have managed to discuss things. Oddly enough, my QT has improved, but there are other changes suggesting that there's been actual ischaemic damage to my heart. Nobody mentioned that on my last ECG (last year), which I'm assuming means it's a new thing.
The cold is starting to really affect my pain levels too.. it was below freezing here last night, which is cold for this early in winter. Usually we don't get freezing nights 'til July.
The good - I'm trialling a new wheelchair this week. I've only had it a few hours, but I like it. It's much more comfortable than mine...it's almost half the weight - I think only 7 or 8kg - and designed slightly differently. The wheels are only an inch or two forward relative to my centre of gravity compared to my chair - but it is so much easier to push, much faster and much more manoeuvrable... I like
And I had a lovely card from our equally lovely Suzane
