Day 41–Family

Yesterday I had my appointment at Liverpool. Every was fine and they have reduced some of my tablets again. So far everything is going to plan. The results from the second culture test from my line was back and showed that both lines were clear and OK, so no removing of the line – Yippee.

Early evening Nigel and his partner Ann came over. It was really good to see them and have a laugh. Charito was working (as usual) but then when she was home she cooked for everyone. What a wonderful wife she is.

We had a lovely curry. I enjoy the curries, because is one of the things I can actually taste. Not only that, it actually tastes like the things it’s supposed too! They had to travel back over to Barnsley , so they didn’t stay too late as it was getting a bit cold and it would probably be frosty or at list foggy on the way back.

I had a nice surprise today when Amy came around to give me some school photos of the the three grandchildren. For once the pictures are actually OK. Last time Jason the youngest, looked like he was just dropped like a sack of potatoes into the photo, lying on the table. This time they are all looking at the camera and smiling (sort of). I was also given a picture of them on a key ring, so I can carry it around with me every where I go.

I’m feeling good today, as I was yesterday. I’m still trying to drink more water.

I have another appointment on Friday, but that is just for bloods to be taken, I don’t have an appointment with the Doctor, so that’s another good sign of things progressing in the right direction.


  1. I just love reading these awesome reports Sean. Congrats on dominating your SCT. Keep it up!

  2. Hi Sean, It's Karen, and I am so happy you are doing so well, and have so many good things to report. Good you are trying your best to keep hydrated; hugh found drinking enough was hard to remember to do, so one thing that helped was sticking a straw in glasses in both loos, by the kitchen sink, on his night table - where ever he might see them and remember to drink. Glug, Glug my friend - keep up the good work!

  3. Adding some Stevia and lemon juice to water makes it taste more like lemonade and (for me, at least) helps me keep hydrated as well as keeping my body system more acidic... still keeping the intending machine on and operating at full power for all those little cells to do their jobs, for the highest and best good of all concerned, so be it and so it is!!! Whoooooo!

  4. This is my 4th attempt at writing this message it keeps crashing. I'm glad you are feeling so much better Good news about your self is always good to hear. Nice that Nigel and Ann came to see you. That was really nice that Maria cooked a meal aftet working. well done Maria.
    Love to you both
