Well its so good to be home. Even if I failed to sleep tonight.
Had 2 walks today, which is specified exercise to start recovery. Added up to 1.25 miles today. Breathlessness should improve as lungs heal.

By the way it's the 25 anniversary of my divorce today and I just lost 6 kilos these last 30 days without alcohol.

Celebrations will be twofold: A slice of veal with taters, cream gravy, peas and corn tonight and at 11.45 am I will have either one or four shots against flu. Sounds strange? Well, I'm in a program testing benefits of mega doses of anti flu vaccines

Congratulations! (unless you don't like being divorced of course. I stick to being married. Twenty years next year)

I just lost 1 kilo instantaneously because I don't know where one of the small dumbells is. I suppose that doesn't count, especially if I find out where it is.

Good to hear you are on the move again, 2Legs. It's even more in metric.

So, what are the advantages of a megadose of vaccine? Does it mean you're set up for life? How would that work, though, as no one can predict the way the viruses will mutate.

Anyway, well done in the quick recovery. We visited a friend here in Berlin who is in a care home after two strokes but he is strong willed and disciplined and is almost walking again. He is already swimming strongly - at least this is what he told us.

It's all in the mind - I know people who sit about complaining they don't get better but that is because they make very little effort to help themselves. I know this can be a mental health issue, too, but as 2legs has proved, just doing the exercise starts you off on the right path.

Every year they vaccinate against the most likely flu epidemic. As a rule, they hit it right. But no guarantees are given. It's a bit like when meteorologists predict the most likely weather.
The trial simply examines whether quadruple vaccines protect so much better than single doses that it justifies the expense.
Megadoses are not expected to protect longer than regular doses, so you still need to be vaccinated every autumn.
This time I got a single vaccine. In 2022 I got four. I don't feel any difference.

I need to sort my flu and covid booster vaccinations. I became elegiable for both the week before surgery, but was told to wait until after surgery.. as yet I cant walk far enough, but should be able to soon..

They promised me a covid booster along with the flu jab but when I showed up it hadn't arrived yet

Will get one 9 November instead. That's probably soon enough. I've had four covid shots and one infection so should be juiced up with antibodies until then, lol

That happened to me as well, Pierre. I scheduled both a flu and covid shot after my endo checkup last friday but when I checked in I asked and they didn't have the covid vaccine either, even though they had flyers posted everywhere announcing that they did.

I skipped the flu shot for now, mostly because I forgot about it after my doctor's appointment and drove away, but when I was reminded by my phonesmiley - star, I decided there was no point turning around. I'll see if I can make an appointment for another time, or I'll just check at my local drug stores.

Pierre de la Mer ~ sometimes slightly worried but never panicking ~

Depends. What did you cook?

Seriously though, yes, it is progress. Keep it up!

6 portions of chicken and mushroom stroginoff, however its spelt.. 3 large onions, 2 bulbs garlic, 800G mushroom and 1.2 KG chicken breast. Lots of soured cream and smoked paprika..

Could be stroginoff, if you add gin (probably not at this stage), otherwise it's stroganoff.

Good to hear the breathlessness is gone.

The dish is said to be named after the Russian Stroganoff family, who built their fortune on trade and landholding and for several centuries were among Russia's very richest. In other words, the oligarchs of the time. I wonder if they got the paprika from Ukraine. Or if they back then had access to the paprika of the Austro-Hungarian empire.

Beef Stroganoff is fairly new here. It came to the UK as recently as between the two world wars. I did not know this.

I didn't know that either.. not cooked it with beef for ages, maybe do that next time for a change..

Pierre de la Mer ~ sometimes slightly worried but never panicking ~

Haven't used beef for Stroganoff either for a long while. But coincidentally found a large batch ready cooked and frozen on sale at my favourite butcher yesterday and simply could not resist buying it. Will probably eat half of it tomorrow.

Did you serve it with taters, mash, rice or something else?


Tomorrow..

Post 39

2legs - Hey, babe, take a walk on the wild side...

I usually have it with rice.. but I AM thinking mash would be great, as the weather gets colder..

Much better to stick it to the inner lining.
