Some good news was given when more blood tests and a scan of the leg showed no DVT to be present. So the blood-thinning tablets given by the doctor when we returned from Poland was stopped after two days, all well and good I thought, but having knocked the leg numerous times when helping daughter Christine to move house last Friday, the leg turned bright red from where the blood refused to clot and massive bruising occurred! Anyway, the scan did reveal I had a Bakers Cyst behind the knee which I may have had for quite a while and still would have been none the wiser if the nurse hadn't pressed hard on the area and asked if it hurt. After scraping myself off the ceiling I said in a high pitched squeak that it did!!!
It's not long now before we set off for Scotland in the Beast. We just have to get through daughter Christine and Son in Law Kev's 40th Birthday party this weekend (both have birthdays within 3 weeks of each other) and attend the City hospital for a final check-up before our departure next Friday.
Not been idle with the camera around the basin. The water was crystal clear and I wiled away the hours by watching all the fishes.
