The lady wife had to go to that London earlier this week to see a consultant, and very good he was too.
We took the car to Milton Keynes, a place with more roundabouts than people. Next morning we went on by train. I was a bit fearful as to how we would cope with a wheelchair but I have to say that the staff at Milton Keynes and at Euston were excellent. They arranged everything and were so helpful. Arriving back at Milton Keynes there was almost a fight between the train manager and the platform staff as to whose ramp was to be used to get her off the train .
The railways get a lot of slagging off, most of it justified, but they deserve commending for their efforts in this case.

Pleased to hear it Bert. I imagine the journey would have been a source of stress for you, glad it was better than anticipated.

How is the wife's mindset, is she charging on or is she quite down?

She has been very up and down, mostly down over the last year, not helped by the lack of treatment and care by her previous provider.
She has moved to another neurologist at Salford Royal hospital and he, in conjunction with the man we saw in London, has arranged disease modifying drug treatment beginning on Dec 10.
She will have to be in the hospital for a series of intravenous infusions over a week .
Happily this coincides with the home match against Hoffenheim so I can go with a clear conscience.
The news of this treatment has cheered her immensely, as you may imagine.

Its nice to hear a little bit of good news for once.
That's a nice Ray of light for both of you I'm sure.

Always found the train services to be exemplary when assisting wheelchair users, tell 'em in advance and it makes it pretty painless even if you have multiple train changes. Other half goes to York with her mum from Preston each year, and has been down to Kent as well, and has only ever spoken positively about it.
Don't know if your wife could consider an electric wheelchair, if she'd be able to use one. There is a certain amount of pleasure to be taken from being able to gently scrape some sod's ankles when they ignore you because you're on wheels and catch you with a bag.

... and that's awesome news, glad to hear it. last specialist sounds like a disappointment but these two sound like they are properly on it.

There was an incident in Italy many years ago, involved me, a girl and some kind of menthol thing i used on the genitalia area without really knowing what it was.

That shit was a bad idea.

I love the smell of deep heat, it’s the backdrop to Sunday league changing rooms up and down the country.

you're meant to spray it on your body, not huff it in a bag SEC.

Being that I'm hitting the half century in a few months.
I've treated myself to a bit of a fancy watch.
Same one buzz and Neil had when they stepped on the moon a day or two after I was unleashed upon the world..

Can't wait..
