Just a quick update about things medical - thanks to those who have been asking about the visit to the specialist. We have learned our way blindfold to the hospital (40 minutes away). I have even done it backwards - in an ambulance though not in high heels like Ginger Rodgers! So far they are swithering about a total change to insulin but the specialist yesterday has given me a stay of execution two more weeks on the same stuff but with a totally different regime. His final advice as I left the consultation was that I should eat cake. Did he really say that or was it just my dismal Spanish?
