Pat sent this to me instead of the list, so I thought I'd forward it on to
Pat doing 22 reps is pretty sound for a first go! With very little practice
you'd have had another trophy for your mantel piece :-).
Let's just hope the new tumour isn't as aggressive as it could be, &/or
those German chappies can think of some way to get things under control. I
hope the scan goes well. As for being 60 on 12 November. I think you look
absolutely fantastic (let alone fantastic for 60!), if I didn't know you
better I'd say you're adding a fair bit to your age (doing the opposite of
what a lot of people do!), you are a real advertisement for eating a
healthy, vegan diet & looking fab at any age too!

Firstly let me say how much I enjoyed the pictorial effect Pete did of
the Bristol competitions - you all did great - well - not sure about
that single rep though! I tried this an hour ago with my 8 kg dumbbell
- with my usually weaker arm (am left handed) and made 22 reps - which I
thought was pretty good, given that I have not done any sort of shoulder
pressing for eleven years! I can now 'shoulder press' the seriously
injured left shoulder/arm using a video cassette as ballast! - which is
some sort of progress I guess! Have found myself an excellent physio
today, who put me through a great deal of pain! - but is hopeful of at
least a partial recovery from labrum and rotator cuff tears following
dislocation six weeks ago. I have healed the breaks and hematoma, but
the tears and nerve impingement are a major problem.
Though I am no nearer to making one of the hardest decisions life has
bestowed upon me thus far, I have made one clarification: A follow-up
scan for 24th November has been arranged in UK and should this show a
worsening of the new tumour - which is unfortunately expected - I WILL
spend whatever time remains to me in close proximity to German clinic -
this could improve my functionality somewhat, though I am loathe to
leave my beautiful home.
Surprise birthday arrangements continue apace - I am most definitely
looking forward to reaching 60 on 12th November!
Love to all, Pat.
