Sunday soapbox

Sunday’s soapbox is yours to use as you will – within the bounds of decency and absence of defamation. You’re welcome to look back or forward, discuss issues of the moment, to pontificate, ponder or point us to something of interest, to educate, elucidate or entertain, amuse, bemuse or simply muse, but not abuse.

Gratitude Rx: take a dose every morning. May cause shifts in perspective, may cause feelings of abundance, decreased feelings of fear and anxiety.

    We received a new bottle during the last two months.
    Baby born 50 years ago was making a bed for her MiL 94th when she went catatonic and then fitted. Hubby with all his first aid skills went into top gear, ABC (airway breathing circulation) called 111 and within short order, HB Hospital diagnostics established a squash ball Menengioma tumor right temporal region. Further tests revealed operable and almost certainly benign.
    Wellington Hospital ward seven south six weeks later and all is now good with the squash ball removed, lab test confirmed the good prognosis and staples removed last Friday.
    All that remains is restoration of licence and SNR.
    Whether related or not mother had a similar tumor removed from her spinal cavity forty years ago and the difference between then and now was ‘grand canyon’ dimensions. With no seizure involved it took us two years to convince the gods (Drs) that the creeping paralysis from nipple level down was not Psychiatric related and therefore going home and pulling ourselves together was going to work. A slow growing benign tumor was pressing the Spinal cord flat , described by Professor Robinson, Dunedin Neurology as like a car tire parked on a hose.
    There were some repercussions for the Medics who let us down so badly but in the olden days complaint procedures were pretty much non existent, so we have no idea what went down, and it matters little now.

    Our two bottles of ‘Gratitude’ occupy a place on our Mantle piece, lottery, scratchies and other dreamtime options are saving us great riches as we have now “won” for a second time in the lottery of life, prizes that are really worthwhile.
