    Wow, dr livingstone, apart from the  obvious kleinefelters syndrome, we share many conditions, including ankylosing spondylitis.  Yes, old age ain’t for  sissies, lol but then I’ve had my arthritis since late teens.
    We are fortunate to have such good services here in New Zealand to provide us with help in our own homes, although strangely those who’s partners are working aren’t able to access as much help within the home as it falls to family to assist.; a foolish reasoning as family aren’t always the best to do this and often are very busy people themselves. My husband, despite being 74, still enjoys working and so I accept this as his right to do so, despite my wishing otherwise ‘sometimes’, lol.
    Not long ’til your MRI and hopefully some answers although often, as we know, there aren’t always.

    Good that you were abe to be out today, it always helps to have some outings. Mine are few and far between but most enjoyable when they happen. 🙂

    Hope your surgery went well JudyQ.
    Regards to lovely Desi and all of you,

    Susan ( nossib1)

    glad all is getting sorting for everyone. Dr L….I would like to try and get to next Monday at Secret Garden but not sure if there will be room in your car with your wheelchair as well as you two…so please let me know either way so I can try to sort out buses etc. ( No need to worry about getting me home afterwards…can drop me cityside if its easier.)
    cheers P

    GypySpirit, The Orbiter goes from Ensors Road to Barrington so if Dr L can’t fit you in that could be an option.   I use the Orbiter frequently and it’s great.  You have probably already sussed this out so apologies if I am preaching to the converted.
