Hospital days

IMG_6704-0.JPG

   Today has been a day of hospitals.  This morning I woke up earlier than I had to after a crappy night of insomnia, dragged myself downstairs, are the breakfast that Mama Cubb prepared for me and attempted to not fall asleep again.  Of course that failed and I fell asleep.  Mama kept trying to […]

Lonely in London

Lonely in London

One of the big problems with living in a vibrant City like London, particularly whilst hosting the Olympic Games, is that there are lots of wonderful things going on, experiences that others are having, that I just cannot be a part of. I cannot use public transport due to my immune system, and thus almost […]

Soya bad

Soya bad

So apparently I am (still) intolerant to soya. I say still because it used to make me rather ill I’m the form of tofu. I find my revisitation to it’s ill effect strange as I can happily munch edamame til the cows come home with no problems but apparently its milk is a different story. […]

Sick + Sick

Colonoscopy update

Colonoscopy update

So I had the colonoscopy yesterday. As previously discussed the prep has a tendency not to entirely “flush” me out and so I had arrived early at 09:30 to ask for an enema. The sister refused. In fact she whispered to the receptionist “why does she want an enema? she’s done the prep hasn’t she” […]

Citrafleet day

Citrafleet day

Tomortow I am having a Colonoscopy to check on my IBD. We’ve never been quite sure what “flavour” of IBD I have, but at the moment we’re calling it early stage Crohn’s disease. I’ve had some rectal bleeding lately that may mean I have polyps again so my Consultant has scheduled another investigatory colonoscopy for […]
