And another bright and sunny day begins here on the South Coast, todays Journal will be a short one as it has been a busy day today as I had my appointment with my consultant at the Queen Alexander hospital. so once I had been washed and Groomed by Jo my carer this morning and had eaten breakfast and phoned Pauline there was just time to check the emails and facebook and to check the progress of the Olympic Torch Relay before It was time to get dressed and gather up everything ready for my appointment with Dr Gibb.

It was a good Visit, I am going to taper my Prednisolone down from 5 mg/15 mg alternative days to 2.5 mg/15 mg Alternative days for 4 weeks and then down to 15 mg on alternative days. Dr gibb is pleased with the way I am progressing with the swallowing, all my 3 weekly blood tests have been coming back ok so I am going to 6 weekly blood tests. and he will see me again in 4 Months time. as far ass the Foggy feeling in the head is concerned he said it is not any tying to worry about just annoying and that it should go as the Prednisolone drops. He has been a good Neurologist so far so will go with what he says, He also said that the Cardiologist is not overly concerned with the erratic heart beats as they are both sure it is down to the weakness in the muscles around the heart and chest areas. The 15 mg of Methotrexate on a friday and the 5 mg of Folic acid on a monday stays the same as does the two Calcichew D3 Daily. so all in all a good positive visit and although I still have a lot of Muscle weakness in the legs which reduces my Mobility he is hopeful that it will improve when he feels it is time to arrange Physio Therapy.
