For All Of You

Finally, I’m going home late this afternoon. They seem to think my aorta might be the source of my problem, I’ve a bit of thickening there and a couple of small ulcers there. Treatment is more blood thinners at the moment, and I’ve another MRI next Thursday 27th December, and follow up appointments here on the Neuroscience department. Yeah !!

For All Of You

For her, for all of you

Take this heart of mine

This is all I have to give

Take my love

That’s all there is !!

Love for her, and all of you

G'day, and welcome to my blog site. My name is Ivor Steven, I live in Geelong, Australia. I'm an ex-industrial chemist, and a retired plumber, and a former Carer of my wife(Carole), for 30 years, who suffered from severe MS. I Write poetry about those personal thoughts, throughout and beyond my life as a Carer. I've been blogging for over 2 years, and writing poems for 19 years. Of course a lot of my poems are about my favourite subject Carole, but since I've been blogging my writings have become quite varied, humourous, mystical, observational, and even a few monster/horror poems.

  4. Goodness gracious, Ivor.
    Your aorta oughta behave
    Did you know that some
    researchers scanned a
    copulating couple in an
    MRI, making out.
    Something to think about
    while you’re stuck in the machine.
    ~ Merry Christmas, Ivor

  5. I am delighted you are home and also relieved that they have hopefully found a reason for your illness.
    Are the family still coming to you for Christmas Day? I hope you put your feet up and let them do all the work. 🙂

  6. So glad you are home! Doo you have a visiting nurse service or anyone to help you? I hope the blood thinners solve the problem for you. My aortic valve was leaking and not closing properly and had to be replaced, along with repairing an ascending aortic aneurysm. I now have a bovine aortic valve, mooooo, lol. Rest easy dear friend!
