Kannada: ಬುಧವಾರ 7 ಜೂನ್ 2017
Woke at 0330hrs, Out of the £300 second-hand recliner and off for a wee-wee and attempted to encourage Constipation Konrad activity on the Porcelain Throne. In there a long time, Haemorrhoid Harold bleeding, and a failed evacuation attempt. Painful and time-consuming.
Washed up and into the kitchen to put the kettle on. The view, (although it does not show in this photographicalisation that I took of it) out of the window, reminded me of a Walt Disney film scene. The lights seemed to be all twinkling. A closer look and I realised it was the horrendous winds blowing the greenery on the bushes and trees in front of the lights. The rain drizzled.
Took the morning medications and did the Health Checks, with some odd results: Sys 147 Low? Dia 73, Pulse 92 High?, Temp 36.1 High? Weight 14.82 Higher suddenly so much higher? I took the Warfarin tablets out of this evening’s pot, to make sure I did not forget not to take them as instructed.
Checked the Emails, got one from the QMC – DVT advising me that the Anticoagulation had informed them of my dangerously high INR result and they cancelled Thursday’s appointment for the checks they were to do and will rearrange them again when the INR level get back to withing range. Warned me to take extra care and in the event of any bangs or cuts to seek assistance through 999 immediately (The same as the anticoagulation team did yesterday). Reminded me to avoid eating any brassica. To remind myself of the full brassica range, I Google it and other food to avoid:
Kale, Cauliflower, Brussels Sprouts, Broccoli, Kohlrabi, Collard Greens, Mustard Greens, Cabbage and my beloved Turnips! Also, other foods to avoid: Aubergines, Mustard, Chinese leaves, Parsley, Spinach, Green tea, Cranberries, Alcohol, Grapefruits, Lettuce, Avocados, Celery, Coconut and Asparagus. Humph! I didn’t see parsnips or lettuce on the original list the hospital gave me after ticker operation? So, the end of my enjoying the turnips has dawned. Grumph… Hehe!
Went to make a mug of tea and took this photo of outside to compare with the one above, taken about two hours ago.
Off for a wee-wee. Tried for a download while in there. Great! The movement achieved, and Haemorrhoid Harold had hardly bled at all! It took a while (15 minutes) and a bit of pain but cheered me up no end.
Disinfected and cleaned everything and back to make the brew in the kitchen. The tea had gone cold, so I made another mug.
The change in the scene outside from the one taken before I hobbled to the Porcelain Throne was astonishingly amazing!.
The wind still howled, though.
I got the computer going and updated the diaries.
Then did some WordPress reading and rechecked the Emails.
Facebook would not load first few times I tried to get into it. The third effort, it did?
TFZ’d a while, then started on my next TFZer graphicalisationing for a while, before having to get ready for the trip out for a nosh with the other tenants.
Met some tenants in the foyer, they were in excellent form verbally.
Caught the bus to Arnold, chatting all the way with one or another of the girls and gals.
The meal was roast beef (well underdone and too chewy), cabbage and broccoli (Both on my ‘Do-Not-Eat’ List, Tsk!), a small cold Yorkshire Pudding and some imitation gravy. But still, I am not complaining.
It was for free. Jenny had worked so hard to arrange it all for us.
It was nice to communicate with others in different surroundings.
Three of us left earlier than the others to the bus-stop for the L9 back to the apartments. Mary, Bill and me.
Chinwag on the ride to the flats, off the bus. All three of us battled with the high winds to line ourselves up so as not to get blown off course for the foyer doors… (Hehehe!) up the floors. Mary off first, then me with Bill carrying on up.
Into the wetroom and deposited me on the Porcelain Throne. I thought after the meal, things might start moving, but no; failed again. Took ages to get in a situation that would allow me to stand and walk again. Much bleeding from Haemorrhoid Harold and this worried me a bit, had to wait a while before the flow was stemmed. Did have a wee-wee though.
Toyed with making a Logotype Graphic on CorelDraw. Still not right or how I’d like it to look yet.
Took the medications and did the Health Checks. All looked okay.
Felt a bit hungry despite the eating out and beef dinner Jenny had arranged for us all at the restaurant. Had a nibble of crisps and biscuits.
Settled to watch the TV then the general nodding-off sessions began earlier than usual.
After several part-watched programmes, I gave up and got the head down in the £300 second-hand recliner.
Woke just after midnight with a start, and recalled some dreaming facts and details so strongly, I was sure I’d remember them later to record here. But no, it was not to be. Tsk!
