Back in the saddle…. almost

Thanks for all your well wishes, I’m on the mend and very grateful that my Crohn’s seems to be sorting itself out by itself. I’m seeing my gastro guy next week just to be sure but my blood tests have come back ok which is such a relief!

I had a very rough time when I first got sick when I was 24, I lost 14kgs in 2 weeks and ended up in hospital for almost the same amount of time. In that first year I was in and out of hospital with tests and relapses and more tests… Then I had to have surgery which left me unable to do anything but lie in bed for almost a whole year so I get jittery if I get a flare up, which up until now has been rare and minor. Still, I’m on the mend and finally eating again after 3 days of not being able to look at food, but now it seems Joshie may have gotten the virus that triggered my problems. Just can’t seem to get rid of the bugs at the moment.!!

The main problem is I’m on immunity suppressants, the same drugs they give transplant patients after their surgeries to stop them rejecting their organs. The result is I tend to get anything going and it hits me harder than it does most people. So Joshie gets something (as kids do) and he gives it me and then we pass it back and forward around the family until something else comes along!

Oh well, never mind!

On a nicer note I got my kit from Scrapbook Studio on Monday and it’s gorgeous! I love the elegant colours and can’t wait to get started. I already have a layout and off the page project planned and will post them when I get them done.

To the competition entrants: I’ll get to the post office tomorrow when I have a bit more energy back so the goodies should arrive for the weekend 🙂

I’m hoping to take Joshie to Glenfield on Friday as Santa arrives in all his splendour and I want to get a photo (although I’m not expecting Joshie to be accommodating at all this year). I should be back to normal (or as normal as I get anyway!) by then.

    So glad that you are starting to come right. I was and have been really worried about you! Yay, can’t wait to see what you come up with, with your SS kit.

    I’m glad you are feeling better, Louise. No wonder you feel “jittery” when you get a flare up – that’s completely understandable considering what you’ve been through.

    Glad the kit arrived and look forward to seeing your work!

    Glad you are feeling better and poor Joshie again hope this will be the end of all the bugs. Looking forward to seeing your creations from the kit and the cybercrop on Friday.
