Speedwell blue eyes
Clive has very blue eyes which sometimes excite comment, but the rehabilitation doctor who came yesterday has eyes literally the colour of speedwell.
This was her fourth visit; now we won’t be seeing her beautiful eyes till after Easter.
The offer of a physiotherapist has been tacitly withdrawn. We don’t think it would have been relevant either, given especially how inflexible they tend to be.
Clive’s main problem at the moment is a swollen and painful left knee, due to a horrible combination of arthritis and lymphedema. The doctor suggested anti-inflammatory medicines which we were already using, and approved our infra-red lamp.
Clive continues to push forward, but it’s a difficult balance between healing and advancement.
