Green -finger ( Mari ) has asked me to explain to her many followers and friends on GOY as to her absence I’m sure they will have missed her presence .
You may remember Mari some time ago had a nasty fall in the street when doing a good turn for a neighbour which resulted in a broken shoulder I’m afraid Mari hasn’t been at all well since then , the very next day after the fall she fell victim to food poisoning which required a Doctors visit as her leg had become numb which in turn led to further X-rays .
Mari suffers from COPD the X-rays show she has further complications with shadows on her lungs she is waiting to hear about further treatment .
I’m sure you would all like to wish her well and hopefully well enough to pop in to visit us soon ..
Look after yourself Mari ,our thoughts are with you ..
Love & Hugs Amy xx

Hi Amy, I don't know her at all, but I admire your kindness in sending this message. I'm sure many on here miss her. Food poisoning is worse than the fall itself. I'm just getting over a mild case of it myself - it's awful regardless and runs you down. Tell her that cranberry juice is very good for food poisoning. It flushes you out, kills pathogens in the GI track and helps keeps you hydrated. I hope she recovers soon.

Hi everyone, I'm Greenfingers (Sarah), I think some of you might think it is me who is unwell, a case of mistaken identity I'm afraid. Apart from flu and an ache in my back, I'm fine. It's Green-fingers who is unwell. I'd like to send my get well wishes to Green-fingers x

Mari has been pleasantly surprised and heartened by so many good wishes its just the tonic when we are feeling low .. Thank you all for helping her in this way ...

The good news is the shoulder fracture is beginning to heal it will be several more weeks in the mending process also her leg is still numb ..
The not so good news is Mari is still undergoing tests and is waiting for an appointment for an endo bronchoscopy on her lungs ...
We wish you well Mari , get plenty of rest and family support . Amy xx

Sorry to hear about Greenfinger's fall & fractured shoulder! I missed out on this piece of news as this year I've not been very regular on here, with my own health problems & that of others keeping me away. :-((

I wish her well & hope she is on the mend by now. :-)) We have often commented on each other's posts & blogs.

just 2 weeks ago a lady friend of ours also had a fall & broke her shoulder. She's waiting for her operation to have a new shoulder joint put in which will be on next Wednesday. We'll be at the hospital the same day as I also have to go for some more tests on my bladder.

Give her my best regards for a speedy recovery & I look forward to exchanging comments with her once again. :-))

Thank you Balcony that's very kind of you especially with having problems of your own , best wishes to your friend for next Wednesday also yourself lets hope its all good news ....

7 Mar, 2016

 

Thanks, Amy. My test wasn't quite as bad as I feared & after a few days of soreness am back to normal Though next Wednesday I have to return for another test on my bladder, this time they want to put a camera inside the bladder! :(

Our friend had the operation on her shoulder last Wednesday & she was in the op theatre 6 hours! They had to remove her shoulder joint & replace it with an artificial one. The had 4 fractures & had broken off the head of the femur as well as having two fractures in her upper arm.

She left hospital Saturday afternoon & after spending the weekend with one of her two sons here has now gone to spend a week with her other son who lives in another part of the country.

Hope GF is continuing to improve & that we will see her on here again soon. Give her my best wishes for a speedy recovery.

I'm glad to hear your friend is being well looked after Balcony it will be a long time healing , I haven't had any news from GF to tell the truth I'm a little worried I'll try sending her PM and hope for a reply .. I do hope your bladder problem turns out to be nothing to worrying about my OH was on Antibiotics for a whole year following a prostate biopsy .. good luck !

You will be pleased to know the good news Mari shoulder is beginning to 'Knit ' as we use to say its going to be a long process with lots of physio she still has numbness in her knee & foot which is going to take longer to heal ,she is also taking medication for a condition which has proved to be a nasty bug in her respiratory system . Mari still has a long way to go .. we are thinking of you Mari and wish you well , hurry up and get well soon xx

Thanks for that, Amy. I've had 3 tests done & I'm now waiting for the Urology doctor to make an appointment to see me at the hospital & tell me the results. I hope he can get to the bottom of why I have retention of urine in the bladder. One good point is that the doctor who did the last test, introducing a camera into my bladder last Wednesday, told me I no longer had an infection in my urine & the bladder looked good to him!

I really hope GF gets better really soon! We often used to comment on each others posts. Nevertheless I'm glad to hear her shoulder is "knitting together".

Is your husband off antibiotics now? I've been on them for nearly 6 months now. A few days after I finish a course it starts up again! I'm now on a low dose, prescribed by the urology doctor a couple of months ago, till he sees me again.
