Great North Run

Somewhere among nearly 50,000 runners is my brother, who completed the 13.1 miles in under 3 hours

Well done! And congrats for fundraising for your local hospice.

Not much to report from myself.  A couple of appointment c*ck-ups but that's nothing new.  Pharmacy at Salford could only supply 2 instead of 3 months Tenofovir, so had to re-arrange 3-monthly follow-up clinic to become a 2-monthly one.  The missing meds arrived a couple of days after my September clinic, but I chose not to drive the 3 hour round trip twice in one week for the sake of 1 bottle of tablets.  I'll get another 3 bottles in November instead.

Letter arrived booking me into an ultrasound at Macclesfield next month.  In spite of a letter from my surgeon to Macclesfield asking for an MRI, the same old same old as 6 months ago has happened again, where they try to downgrade the imaging to a US instead.  Waiting to get that changed.

  1. Hi Fiona,
    That is a lot of runners! Steve is hoping to eventually get to a point with his health where he can do that kind of running again.
    Sorry to hear they are messing with your needed MRI again. It sounds like that might just be an ongoing battle on your part. I'm glad to know you are doing well otherwise. Keep up the good work: )
