Well, Bear saw the surgeon about his back and the news isn’t good.
He is too old to be operated on considering all his other medical problems and, to cut a long story short, the surgeon says he will gradually get worse and less and less mobile until he blocks up completely.
He is understandably depressed.
The new physio we have found is very good. He comes in every day during the week and massages Bear’s painful joints. Then he supervises a walk for as far as he can manage.
As for Whale, he has a rather delicate problem. A hole has appeared at the base of his (I’m not writing the word because I don’t want to attract unwanted visits via Google).
Our GP, the nurses and carers are all intrigued but when he saw a urologist at the hospital, all he could suggest was that the nurses disinfect it daily. He says if he sewed it up it would probably reappear. . . . . . . .
