Just an update about geoff.
As I said before he had that manipulation on his leg and the doctor got it to 95% which is brill.However, I've got to be honest and say that geoff is not doing enough exercises to keep it that way. It is now only 70%
The physio, Julie, who is great had a word with me this morning and asked what geoff is doing and I told her the truth. Not enough, I said.
The problem is geoff is in such pain, but however, so is everybody else, it is well known it is one of the most painful ops you can have and you have got to persevere with the pain. It will eventually go. But you have to exercise it a lot.
After the physio geoff came out a bit unhappy and when we got home he told me that julie really put him through it, making him work that knee, and even sounded irritable with geoff.
The problem is you have go to push geoff to do this, he is in pain, you can see it in his face. But you see, everybody else in that physio session has had the same op and they all said about the pain, It is horrendous for a couple of months and you have to work so hard at the exercises.
This is my fortnight hols and I've spent more time at the hospital than I have at home, because geoff can't drive so I have to drive him everywhere.
I admit that my patience is getting a little short now.
I don't want to see him like this but it is in his hands, nobody elses.
I wish I could fast forward the time for a year and see him walk properly and this could be all over.
Anyway, as I've said before, will try to get back to blogging, but will have to wait and see.
Thankyou for your kind comments on my last blog.

This is the first time I have been able to blog since 23rd June, and I,ve just had to sign in!
I had even forgot that we have to do sometimes. LOL
Anyway, just to let you know that geoff is back in hospital just for today though, as he has had to have manipulation on his knee.
You see, it wouldn't bend properly.
So, they will knock him out, and wiggle the knee about and get it going.
It sounds quite rough actually as the doctor Mr. Bell did explain that he could break geoff leg doing it!!!Although he did explain that in 20 years that has only happened once.
That frightened us both.
I will have to ring tomorrow morning and find out what time to pick geoff up.
It's geoffs last chance to get his knee right, they can do nothing else, it is up to geoff now. He has to do his excercises 4 times a day and then after a couple of weeks it will be like new, we hope.
So, lets hope.
It is so funny to do this now, it has taken me a long time to do this, I'm all rusty.
I miss blogging so much but don't have time.
I'll have to give up work!!!!
I've been at Asda for 20 years now, and the manager, Nigel, came and shook my hand.
I told him you get less for murder.

Anyway, lets hope it's not long before I can start again.
Although I've said that before, haven't I?
