It started off as a good day, beautiful sunshine and we’d both slept pretty well.
We even remembered to check the roads for possible hold ups, and allowed ourselves an extra half an hour for the trip as the main route was already starting to back up according to the council website and radio report.

Hubby’s blood appointment went very well, and after 20 something years, he has been prescribed an alternative to warfarin.
The hospital doc prescribed 8 weeks worth of tablets, but the Local Authority only permits one month’s supply at a time, so the shortfall will have to be provided by our GP surgery. Now seeing as they can’t get the current medication right, Hubby has decided to go up to the Sit and
You’ll probably be seen last if at all Wait clinic tomorrow to see a GP and collate his current medicines on ONE prescription which he will be able to hand in once a month himself rather than rely on ‘The Computer’ to generate prescriptions for the wrong pills he needs.
The good, no GREAT, news is that the new meds work differently to warfarin, so there is no need for regular INR blood checks which were thrown out by taking other medication such as paracetamol, cold remedies, antibiotics or painkillers.
Best of all, Liver and Cabbage are back on the menu!

Liver, bacon, cabbage and mash was the first meal Hubby cooked for me, though he wasn’t my Hubby then. It has been a treat for us to have liver and/or cabbage, (which included brussel sprouts) in recent years as they reacted with the warfarin, so we had to be careful.
There are other things too, like cranberries and anything else high in vitamin K or iron.
Now, he will be able to eat more or less what he likes, which has to be good for the diet, which I have to be honest, was getting a little stale.
Now we just have to sort out his reflux problems.
