Congratulations, Bishop’s Finger on new licence. Even more congratulations on the seizure free year which has enabled the new licence.

Thank you!

Yes, the freedom from seizures (they were Not Agreeable At All) is a blessing, albeit tempered by the side-effects of the meds, but hey ho...

...and dropping in again to report that, following recent tests and new medication, my hypertension has been reduced (150 over 82 this morning!).

[Yipee]

Yes, I know that top line is still a bit high, but it's better than 200 over 115 at the last check...and hypertension does run in my family (thanks, Ma).

[Ultra confused]

O praise God and His angels and saints for the National Health Service, which is treating me so well and efficiently!

The good news is that I don't have Parkinson's disease. On the other hand (well, both hands) I have drug-induced Parkinsonism, caused by 40+ years on anti-convulsants, and that won't improve.

While joining the praise for WW's progress [Yipee] , with continuing upholding, there is also ground for rejoicing about our Shippie P's iSurgery (my prayer request of 18 September).

In the meantime, she's even had both (!) 'Windows to the Soul' done - to stay with the 'lectronic image -, and lo and behold, the veil has lifted from both of her eyes.

All is well, and she even enjoys her matinal caffeine intake again.

Thanks to everyone for your prayers! [Smile]

Rains! Sydney and pastoral districts very much need it. Much of the state did get some last week but Sydney has had a dry winter overall and has had just 2 mm of rain since the end of August. Forecast to be about 25mm, an inch, to fall here today.

Thanks be to God, my esteemed Cousin R. has found another job, similar to his previous employment.

Great news for him, and for his family!
