At least - not much news but just to let you know we are still about. Following much the same routine. Saffron Walden gym every Tuesday and Friday. Whenever there is a lunch meeting at the weekend, we will go although Ron gets restless as soon as he finishes eating so we never get to sit about afterwards to chat. We are like beggars we eat and run.
I had the Planning Meeting for the U3A Garden Group that I lead on Friday so Suzanne took Ron to his physio and she came back with a lovely bunch of flowers for me.
I have photographed them on the draining board because this is where the light was best but they don't live there
Ron is now able to walk the length of the parallel bars without holding on "walk" is a generous word here - more like stagger but he improves his technique every week.
Following our visit to the Stroke Doctor, Ron has had a letter from DVLC saying that the doctor has said he is able to drive so they have returned his licence.!! On Saturday we went to Colchester to have a look at a hand control unit. Ron was pleased with what he saw and the total cost with fitting will be about 1,000 and these can be fitted on any car. No decision has been made by Ron. I only wish we had never has the driving assessment at WGC which was an entirely voluntary thing but if we had not had it I would now be pleased and excited for Ron instead of worried.
We got in touch with Barry and Valda and met up for lunch following our visit to the hand control place. We had a lovely lunch at The Cricketers, Fordham Heath. Lovely food and reasonably priced.
Life continues to get easier just little things like being able to manage in disabled toilets as Ron can now stand alone. He can get his pants and trousers off without help when we go to bed.
Next week we are off to the Classic Car Show at NEC, we will drive up on Sat morning and stay overnight at a Premier Inn. I have been busy making cakes for the Jaguar Drivers Club stand
I am a bit concerned how things will be re parking they say there is parking for disabled and transport but if it is a bus Ron will have trouble getting his scooter on as the scooter cannot deal with any changes in levels - I am not going to fret about it.
I will let you know how we get on in the next blog - bye for now.
