some potentially better news

N had a bad night on Tuesday so I put my foot down and said I’d ring the hospital and speak to the consultant’s secretary (we haven’t seen the consultant yet but his secretary is very helpful!)

I got throught to her straight away and she looked on her computer and said that N  had an appointment that afternoon! No-one had told us! We duly went for the appointment and saw a Dr who seemed to need us to lead him by the nose. he started talking about a “sore tummy”, we had to tell him several times that N is a Dr and would like to know the score exactly without any flannel.

Apparently the tumour marker blood tests which were done on Tuesday showed abnormalities in the bowel rather than pancreas which is good although of course the liver and lungs are still afffected. So we asked for chest and back xrays and painkillers.

The next step is a colonoscopy which is going to be arranged for today , tomorrow or Saturday so we’re waiting to hear about that. Trouble is, the patient has to drink gallons of goo to clear out the bowel and N is finding it hard enough to drink a pot of tea although he is feeling a bit better today.

Yesterday he was a bit snappy and so was I because I was feeling got at and I kept thinking it was only two weeks since my hip replacement and I’m driving and walking without crutches and I’m doing my best etc. Stil I went out for a drink with a couple of “horsey friends” and feel better today.

Our new furniture has arrived (should have come yesterday) and it’s nice so that’s good too.

Thanks you to all well wishers x

Had a bit of a wobbly this am, needed to get out of the house and frustrated by not being allowed to drive (although I think I’m just going to do it  as the risk of hip dislocation is small.) Better after a visit to the yard to see my friend and my pony. Consuming large amounts of chocolate. Put my foot in it yesterday by asking my brother – in -law if he would give the girls away if ever they get married, I wanted continuity, him standing in for his big brother, then it really hit home for my poor husband as he realised he wouldn’t see his daughters get married. They were not best pleased with me. Still, in a way, maybe these things get said and aired. Just need to get some help with his pain and get him well enough to go out a bit and enjoy things.

Been watching DVDs of Morse, nostalgic and therapeutic. Have ordered some new furniture so my husband has a comfy supportive chair at last. Ordered it on Saturday from John Lewis, will be delivered on Wednesday, you get what you pay for in the long run. Girls demolished old armchair and found just how shoddy it was, so much for DFS.
