    The flu jab isn't available yet, ;) but I've got an appointment for the shingles. By mistake I made it for DH's birthday. I can either change it, or do something later in the day with him. Might change it tomorrow. The vaccine is free for over 70s, but it sounds like it's the old fashioned variety.
    I did have shingles once, round my waist, but got away with it lightly as it was caught early and I was put on anti-virals.
    My ex had it really badly in the eye area. Horrible pain and months to get over it. He was only about 21.

    Still dragging. I've done 30 mins rowing and been out to the shops. Dinner is in the IP. Chicken, lentil, spinach and pea curry. I do rice for DH.

    Nice, Lisa! :D

    Much love to all, Heather UK xxxxxxx

    I also have two different wahoo fitness tracker HRMs one is a plain one and the other is has some extra connectivity that tracks me on the treadmill.

    Plus my treadmill came with an HRM if I want to use it.

    Plus I have a Polar one which I used on the bicycle outside. I'm not sure if I'll continue using that one outside or if I'll go with one of the wahoo's.

    We just end up collecting these things!

    Lisa in AR - "JanetR - watching your experience with the knee replacements, of course. So sorry the scan made you ill, but am so glad the doc is taking it all seriously. Is the knee sliding out of its channel causing you much pain?"

    Thanks sweetie for your concern. When it first started it was horribly painful and would sometimes catch and I'd almost fall down, I had to grab something close by to hold on to. Its not as painful now. As you know the actual knee joint is titanium but there is a "plastic" disc cushion between the titanium and the leg bone, the plastic disc is what has slipped a little to the inside of the knee. I look a bit knocked kneed on my left leg.

    Awaiting report from the surgeon on the scan.

    Beth , thank you, that's a good idea about sharing my reaction. The nuclear med technician did tell me that it is a fairly common reaction, some have a worse reaction than others and some have none at all.

    Bad luck on my restart. Had a bad fall sprained my ankle and broke my fibula last night. UGHH! Was on such a good role with my diet and exercise. Now I can’t even put weight on my leg and can’t workout for awhile. Though hobbling around on crutches is it’s own kind of workout.

    Oh, I'm sorry to hear that. I hope that the pain's not too bad. Crutches and I don't get along. 😞

    Sharon Are you traveling alone? Other than many, many work trips, I haven't done that yet, but I want to. I find Mexico to be one of the most difficult places in the world to communicate.

    Bras: I hate them. No matter what I choose, it's uncomfortable. I like shelf bra tops because they are the most comfy option and I work from home. I need something, but don't want to wear an underwire. And even sports bras are uncomfortable to me. I run, so buy the high impact ones. Basically, they just squeeze me to death. I cannot wait to get out of them.

    Dentist today. Getting 2 crowns and a filling on one side. I expect complete misery tonight.

    Rebecca ~ Love that Athena!

    Rebecca - gorgeous Athena! <3
    All my grandchildren were huge when babies. My DDIL worked on the very good principle of 'food plus sleep' makes a happy baby. All are excellent sleepers and were enormous as babies. Now the older two are slim and Bea is sturdy, but normal. I was worried at the time, but all has turned out fine.

    Having a drink or two waiting for DH to come home. ;) :* Wish I hadn't, but I'm stopping now.
    Now going to have my curry.
    The cleaner has been and all is lovely. Very calming to the mind.

    Love Heather UK xxxxxxxx

    Rho--teenage girls are terrible. Glad you can smile about it now.

    Rebecca--Athena is so cute and growing so fast. They sure do not stay little long.

    I have tomorrow off, but things to do. I go back to the eye doctor in the morning to have the rest of the tests on my eye and decide on the treatment plan. Then at noon I have an appointment to give blood at the Red Cross drive at the hospital. I may work the afternoon shift, depends on how my lady is doing. She is having some health issues and can only work a couple hours at a time and most of the shifts are 8-12 hours. So see what happens.
    This weekend I have a class 7:30 to 6 both days to get my license to drive the motorcycle. I have done the book study and test and now just to take the class. Trying my best to stay calm about it.
    Blessings, Vicki GI NE <3
