Clinic Visit

We had hospital last, for the start of Alan's annual review. He had his bloods taken and they arranged for him to go to the lab for a lung function test, to the x-ray department for a x-ray and scans of his abdomen, liver and portal system which are happening on the 1st February. He is also going to have 2 weeks of introvenus antibiotics starting on Monday. We are trained to do them at home, and although they are very tiring doing them it means we do not have to stay in hospital. Alan has been off school with a sickness bug and is just not quite himself, so, the IVs will hopefully help make him feel a lot better. I do worry at this time of year when its Alan's review time, i am hoping for good news in March when we see the specialist from Glasgow to get the results.

First Day Back

Alan's first day back didn't get off to a good start, We got a call around 12 to say he was not feeling well. Alan went to get him and he looked ghastly, he was pale and gaunt.He had some calpol and he lay up on the sofa and slept for a while. He woke around 3 and was really burning up, he had a glass of water and just lay and watched TV. I made him tuna pasta for tea and he did manage to eat it, so hopefully he is on the mend. We have the cystic fibrosis clinic tomorrow at 10, Alan has his annual review. He will get his bloods taken tomorrow so I'm hoping he will feel better for that. I will blog tomorrow to let you all know.

Happy New Year

Happy new year firstly, i am hoping 2012 is a good year for us. I always wonder as we start a new year what it will bring, firstly health wise for Alan and what the year beholds for us. Hopefully Amy will be starting university in September, so that is something to look forward to. She has sent off to 5 universities for nursing, and one for music, so hopefully her results will be rewarded and she will get in. She is also starting driving lessons so she may pass her test this year too.

Alan and Amy are back at school tomorrow after the new year. Alan is also back at work, so i will be on my own for a little while. I'm going to the gym in the morning for an enrolment so that will pass some of my morning. Then i am meeting my sister for a little bit, we will have a bite of lunch and a catch up.

I am also writing another blog on weight loss, I'm still trying very hard, hence the reason why i am going for the gym induction, I'm trying to tone up too. here's the link if you want a look...
