However I had a decent sleep last night and only woke once during the night for the bathroom and woke at 7.00 this morning. So made a coffee and listened to the radio in bed before getting up at 8.00 and going into the lounge ready for when the carer comes.

Pauline phones back about 9.30, she is out on the common with Misty, it is very windy today and although the weather is dry we are expecting a few showers today anyway it is dry and sunny at the moment so once I have spoken to pauline I get myself dressed and then while it is still sunny I take a walk round to the shop to get a paper, it is a very pleasant day out there today and it is nice to get some fresh air so I take a slow walk around the block on the way back home, takes me about 20 minutes and when i get home my legs are just starting to ache so I know that is enough walking.

My Gluten Free Diet
well so it is now almost 3 weeks since I went totally Gluten free and I must say that I have found a terrific difference in my Digestive system.
- I have noticed that there has been a massive reduction in my acid reflux.
- I have for the first time in almost 2 years that I have had a reduction in my reliance on having to use laxatives.
- My appetite has returned once again and I am not having the bloating feelings that I used to have.
- A pack of 4 gluten Free crumpets £1.98 GBP
- A Small sliced white Warburtons bread £2.00 GBP
- a Pack of 6 Jam Tarts £1.93 GBP
- Pack of 6 Pork Sausages £2.78 GBP
So if you want baked items or things like cakes, bread or processed foods like sausages or ready meals you pay a premium price, the prices quoted above are at Asda, ( Wallmart in the USA and Canada ).
So I am seeing my GP next Tuesday and let him know that I have got an improvement in my digestion and see what his response is, also I will see if he will reduce the dose size of my Lansoprazole and see if the acid reflux still stays under control, it will be interesting to see what he has to say, If he agrees with what I am saying it will be possible to obtain some Gluten free items ie Bread , Flour etc under Prescription. Anyway I will keep you all updated.
Well that is about it for today, a very lazy restful day, and tomorrow it will be shopping with Pauline, hopefully depending on the weather we will be shopping down Palmerston Road, in Southsea
