For this old man it was a rather busy week. Every day an activity or an appointment:
Indoor bowls; concert by 4 singers and a pianist for our new local association for elderly people ( awonderful concert by the way); hospital for veins examination twice and dermatologist.
The result of the examination was that the veins in my legs are those of a young man. That is good news of course, but is not a result to solve the problem of the ulcer. The dermatologist prescribed another treatment with prednisolon: 3 days 6 pills, then 3 days 5 pills etc. I have an appointment in 3 weeks again
The best appointment was with an internet friend in a real life meeting. We met once before months ago for the first time. We had to get used to each other. Now it was meeting my best friend. We had a great conversation and we hope to do it again in the near future.
I am very glad I have internet access.
I remember I got an internet subscription when many years ago our daughter moved to Berlin. It was just the telephone connection. And I thought it was nice to be able to communicate with her, but I was sure I wouldn't use it for anything else. And I was so wrong. Very soon I discovered the ways to communicate with other people, to find information. And in cyber space I met so many wonderful people. Some of them became real friends although we never met in real life.
So I have reasons enough to be thankful: Lovely Wife, nice children, nice senior house, no financial problems and many friends in real life and on the internet.
It still hurts...
