I am aware it’s 20 past 2 in the morning but my syringe driver has stopped working again (it did have a nice run of 5 days being good) and we thought it would be a good time to blog whilst we wait for the district nurse.
So yesterday, as in Tuesday, was a very busy day for me – I entertained guests for about 11 hours! That just shows how much stronger I’ve got, because a couple of weeks ago I would only be able to manage an hour a day-ish.
My first visitors were Helen and Harriot and they did a splendid job of being guests because they brought Alan their giant African land snail with them! Look:
I’m not saying other guests were below par by not bringing a giant African land snail, called Alan, with them but really..come on..beat that! What a fantastic idea. Shortly after that picture was taken he blew me a kiss…..I sound like I’m high on Morphine but I swear Alan blew me a kiss, you can ask Helen.
The doc came to see me today as well, measured my blood sats again and I actually got up to 99% minus the oxygen tube – that’s probably better than most of you. She also said that my legs look less infection and more just inflammation – so I’m pleased not to be adding anymore symptoms to my list. They’re still swollen and very very tight, so we’re trying out every cream we have to see which one works best at soothing.
I worked out what it was I feel I should be sad about – turns out it’s dying and missing out on Sylvie growing up..I had a bit of a cry with Mum, but she’s agreed with me that it would be a good idea to write a letter to give to Sylvie on her wedding day if I’m not there. I feel like a fighter though so who knows how long I’ll be around.
I hate it when my driver stops working because the diamorphine very quickly moves on and leaves me with an achey back.
Over and out.
