I’m fine thanks

Hello. I got so fed up with explaining to friends and some family how I was feeling that I just say, I’m fine thanks. My wife doesn’t have to ask me, she knows as do my sons and daughter.

I just want to add that when I was in the hospital last year I made a vow that if I got out ok I was going to get in touch with some of my old mates – which I did!

Four of us who went everywhere together as youngsters are going out for a meal, all of us in our late 60s and all of us sick: one has cancer, one has had a stroke, one a heart problem, and me with COPD – but we are still out there fighting for some sort of normality. What a sight we must look! I dare anyone to ask how we are. They will never get away, lol.
