It feels a bit like summer.

Don’t get me wrong I love summer but my MS doesn’t. I like nothing more than being outside with my gorgeous pooches but when it is as warm as today it drains me.

2 days ago I tried to get a picture of our cherry tree in blossom before it all blew away, I couldn’t see the tree on my screen because the sun was at the wrong angle! When I came in and looked at the picture I noticed that Hamish had “photo bombed” the tree. 😀  He is a funny bloke.

The MS has been plodding along recently, after several more painful falls I started physiotherapy to try to help with walking. After several weeks of physio I was referred to the orthotics department at Kettering hospital to get some leg braces! Apparently I have “foot drop” in both feet. I knew my left foot had turned inwards several years ago and that I occasionally scuff both of my feet when walking but I didn’t know it was due to nerve damage, it wont get better but the braces will help a bit. I have been measured and assessed, now I just have to wait until they have been made.

I still haven’t got a foster dog as things keep popping up to put things on hold. I haven’t been able to drive very far so I can’t get to the new kennels to get a dog, I was told someone could bring me a dog and this appeared to be a solution. Now we are waiting for my Mum to have her hip replacement, this will delay getting a dog as Julia will have to help out with my Mum for a while. 😦

Love Underdogs still need people to adopt the gorgeous pooches even though they are now withdrawing from The UK, dogs can be found here.


8 year old Madonna is a big soft lump who loves a good belly rub.





Zorro is a shy 8 month old puppy who needs a calm patient family to call his own, is that you?



Details of all of the Underdogs can be found by visiting the Love Underdogs website.


About Mick C Gorman

Slightly damaged old bloke who is plodding on with more than a little help from a great wife. I have been married for 36 years and have 2 grown up children. I did the usual thing and replaced children with dogs when the nest became empty, best thing I ever did (apart from getting married of course). Life has taken a few interesting turns so far but this Epilepsy thing beats the lot! I love lots of things but in the past have never really stuck with them long enough to be good at them, I am trying harder to be better at a few things rather than okay at loads of things. There is still plenty of time. :-D

    Sorry to hear the weather is playing havoc with your MS. Bummer. Hope a new dog can join you soon. That should brighten your day.

    • Thank you. It’s nothing new to me the heat has always made my MS worse, it’s just it has been so long since we have had nice weather I had forgotten. 😀
