Hi there ,sorry about the great grandbaby xx
I hope you are ok with your health stuff and enjoying life.The platinum hair is pretty sexy really!
All good Tiff,nothing like a beach to truly lift your spirits
Happy anniversary 19!!!! to sweet Lainy and Teddy
love from Janet x
I think its quite clear what is needed and that it is a family reunion because of a sick grandfather.
I see money being raised for all kind of scenarios,sometimes it's a case of who you know or are connected to ,it can be rather random really ...but I wish them luck in reconnecting
Sorry I am in another country so can't help practically
Lainy,have a great time,indulge a bit in a bit of what you fancy.
I always try to plan a nice day on my wedding anniversary,it doesn't have any bad memories attached to it and neither does Joel's birthday.Christmas though is a bit of a challenge because all the really bad bits played out over that time.
I will buy myself a present,more a household one than personal and have a nice lunch and remember what a great day we had and if anyone else wants to chip in with their memories I am good with that too.
So anyhow hope that helps
photo in frame is a nice idea Lainy
fancy that a great grandma and you so seemingly young and cool.Actually you look very like Joel's stepmother and this is one of the reasons that I have always been so fond of you(there are many others!)
love from Janet
ps I am ok amazingly quite a lot due to my friends here
Welcome back from me too,Lainy,had sent an email prior to spotting this but anyhow ...thinking about you x
Pam,thank you for keeping us all updated on Lauren.I think a lot of us have been concerned about her and you.
Thanks for these interesting reports....well done!
Pam....you and your family have been constantly in my mind these last few days.I so wish you all well Janet xx
Thanks Lainy,I think we all had a bit of a shock with this one!
Pam how worrying for you and the family.I am hoping this all goes ok for Lauren and fixes whatever needs fixing......but please look after you during this stressfull time too x
Pam,wishing everything to go ultra well for Lauren
sending heartfelt good wishes and vibes from the other side of the world......
I think when you get to the time of year when things were tough it does come back at you a bit,quite unbidden,you can be trying to distract yourself but the memories are a bit too strong and break through and make you feel a bit ordinary.
......But time eases it .For me the Christmases have been pretty awful as thats when our worst time was and Joel died early January but this last christmas I enjoyed the day and I thought "Well now this is progress"I had tried to enjoy the others even booking into a very expensive restaurant for us all one year-
I enjoyed the food but it was still a very average day.
Darla is right about these feelings coming in waves and we surf through them and get past them.So just keep doing what you enjoy and what makes you happy and sometimes it will work

Truly fantastic news,Pam
Lainy,I think the ceasing of the prednisone is almost like a separate condition itself because it is a big adjustment for the body to start back its own cortisol production.Hopefully you will get a remission with the ulcerative colitis and this is much more likely with it when diagnosed at an older age.
With the barium meal see if you can drink less of it or if they can mix it with something,it is a common problem with the barium!
good luck and wait and see how the bowel is going before worrying about further meds
That is great news Pam and nice to have it before they go on their holiday to Mexico ..... all good Janet
A difference in BP on the different arms(or legs ) can be related to the aorta or heart.Blood pressure is usually higher on the dominant arm(usually the right) normally so depending on which arm it was it might not be a huge difference.
If it is related to tumour pressure that would be unusual and I dont think we have had that presentation before.
I hope your mum picks up quickly and is able to go home
thankyou for sharing this news with us.......so wonderful.What a thoroughly nice man he sounds
I remember him on the horse! he seemed like a game for anything sort of bloke.I doesnt feel like 3 years ,although we have all been through a lot together in these last few years
love from your friend Janet
