Successful day.

I had a bad night with the shoulder again, can't remember how many times I woke up. When I did get to sleep, Storkie boy would wake me for a cuddle.
I spoke to Richard, my friend from the national asbestos helpline. I have been feeling a bit sorry for myself and a little lost as to what to do. Richard gave me the kick up the backside (nicely I might add) that I needed. I got off the phone from Rich and called my insurance company. I get health insurance through work and know how lucky I am to have it. There is still no answer or feedback from the secretaries I have spoken to. I have been told that my letter of referral won't be looked at until Wednesday. The secretary was assuming it was on the desk of the Dr.

I spoke to my insurance company as no one can tell me if the Dr I need to see does a private clinic. I was pleased to hear that he does and got the number. I called the clinic and spoke to a most helpful secretary. She told me there was an appointment tomorrow afternoon at 5, perfect, I took it.
I am feeling much happier now I have got somewhere. I am getting worried as I have been feeling tired and yukky today. I am not sure if the pneumonia is back, I have a little bit of the colourful muck. It's just a matter of keeping an eye on it.
I didn't feel hungry at all tonight, I managed a tiny amount of my meal. I then made a Complan drink to give me some nutrients and juiced some blueberries, strawberries and raspberries.

I still need to sort my car out but will have to leave it until I feel better. Her battery needs charging and she does ned some work. I will have to get onto that project when I am feeling better. I am so nervous about connecting the battery terminals to the battery, don't want to blow meself up!!!!
Mind you, a couple of hunky firemen might just make me feel better : )

Thank you to Shelby who made this lovely graphic. She lost her husband and her friend last year to mesothelioma, she has a memorial and prayer page. It was so thoughtful of her to add me to the group and for her prayers. We have a wonderful warrior community. I am so grateful to have them all in my life, Like Richard today, we all support and help each other even when there are more personal and heartbreaking issues going on. x x x
