The Anonymous Widower

My Strange Relationship With Vitamin B12

For the last couple of days my eyesight has not been its best.

My typing has been not of its usual quality for a one handed typist and I even have had difficulty with doing up my shoe laces. So much so, that yesterday, I wore my best slip-on shoes with a royal warrant from the Queen.

My INR yesterday was 2.2, which is within range.

Last night, I decided to give myself a pseudo injection of B12 – a tin of sardines and two eggs baked in the oven. Serial Cooking -Sardines And Baked Eggs gives the recipe and full instructions.

  • My typing this morning is so much better.
  • I just tied my shoe laces with alacrity.
  • But my INR has risen to 3.3.

I do wonder, if after my stroke, that my brain directs the B12 to the damaged areas and that those, who advocate B12 after stroke are right!

As to the INR, I’ve just found this page on Valve Replacement.org.

But as a Control Engineer, I have the solution. Test my INR every day.

Serial Cooking -Sardines And Baked Eggs

This simple dish is nutritious.

The original recipe recommended sprinkling with fresh parsley!

I cooked it last night in about fifteen minutes.

I always make sure, I’ve plenty of sardines in the cupboard. Last night, I used some French ones from Marks and Spencer.

Conclusion

Could this be the perfect supper for one during COVID-19?
