Well, I got a call from my local Health Centre yesterday as I’d just ordered some insulin the day before & mentioned I’d booked my vaccine in Ballymena, bigger town 14 miles away, & they said I’m on their list of vaccines anyway as they were doing diabetics 50 & over right now! I just missed out, 49, & would be next in the next 3 weeks or so & Ballymena are now doing the ones with shielding letters from their GP’s & I would be turned away without one! So, I cancelled the Ballymena appointments & said my own Health Centre is doing vaccines & I’ll get it done there! The confusion came about because of my other siblings all getting theirs at Ballymena by online booking at the Leisure Centre at Ballymena when I’d already received Dad’s appointment letter, from our Health Centre, to get it done at the Ballymoney Leisure Centre earlier! So, it was a good thing I mentioned it on the online prescription form: I always like to tell my GP’s whatever I think they should know; have gotten notes from them in my prescription items answering questions &, if more urgent, I get phone calls as well! The Health Centre is doing the Oxford one as opposed to Ballymena doing the Pfizter! I asked about, since she (practice nurse) was on the line anyway, about any dangers or things getting worse with my long COVID symptoms & she said, baring in mind no one will know how I will react to the vaccine until I get it, she doesn’t think I’ll be in danger as it’s only ever been my asthma that flares up & I don’t get any other symptoms.
Glad that’s sorting itself out & I just have to be patient for a bit to get my vaccine letter: works out better as I don’t need to travel so far!
A Very Good Morning to you all & have a Wonderful Day!
Morning everyone. After an awful couple of days when levels were high and corrections not working, had another 2u correction an hour before bed and an extra half unit basal, i woke to a much more acceptable 6.4. Now just hope it stays within range, though will be keeping an eye on it as tomorrow is vaccine day.
Morning all, 6.8 today. Been a hard week at work, am glad to have a few days off. Went to the garden centre yesterday to get a couple of rose bushes as my aunties in the church yard had died and decided to get one for my uncle as well. The gardeners are going to put them in today. Our caravan site is opening in April so am really looking forward to getting back down there. @Lanny many congrats on the HS.
Have a good day everyone x
Morning all and I’m glad to say the Eggy special is back. 5.5. And I think I know the secret. Shhh.....don’t tell anyone but it’s a McVitties ginger nut before bed if under 7.4. Who knew? We are promised a much better day today after atrocious weather, heavy rain, gales and floods have hit us up here. We attempted a walk yesterday but fell at the first hurdle as couldn’t cross the bridge. Ah well, 1.3 miles is better than nowt. Will try and prise Mr Eggy from his new toy today and get a longer walk in hopefully. I’m sure he’ll take it with him anyways. I had to laugh last night as he took it to bed with him! I’m trying to read and all I can hear is click, click, click.
Have a great day and huge congratulations @Lanny on your first HS of the year. Here’s to many more.
Well, it isn’t raining, there’s a clear blue sky, so after a dog walk and some errands it’s a morning of gardening for me - yippee! I’ve got some clearing to do, and some plants need to be moved (in case OH squashes them when he builds our ‘BBQ shack’). Got the JBs at the ready!
Well done @Lanny on the HS! My brother in London booked a jab online and told me to give it a go. So I typed in my post code - deepest, darkest West Wales - and was offered a jab in Bideford, Devon which...apparently...is only 50.7 miles away. Eh? In a rowing boat maybe. Or as the crow flies. I’ll just wait for my surgery to call! (They’re doing 64-69 year olds this week. A bit behind?)
6.0 for me today.
Well done @Lanny for your first HS of the year and it's still only February!
Stop press!!! Well done @Kaylz on your HS room on the chair for two! Any more?
