I don't usually mention my health (or lack of it) in this blog, preferring to be positive and focus on what I can do but I've just had a few days in hospital and could do with a bit of sympathy please as I'm feeling sorry for myself.
I have Crohn's disease (and also ME/CFS and Fibromyalgia) and in the early hours of last Wednesday had a sudden flare up which resulted in a massive bleed, a collapse on the bathroom floor, mega panic for my beloved when he couldn't find my pulse or wake me up and then a trip in the ambulance with the blues and twos going and a long time in resus - it would have been very exciting if I'd felt up to it! After the surgeons deciding not to remove my colon I finally got home last night full of extra blood (thank you that donor) and lots of steroids and am taking things very easy.
Annoyingly that means I'm not even sewing. I had my storm at sea miniature quilt in hospital, thinking of all that time I'd have to work on it between obs and jabs, but couldn't apply myself to a single stitch. I did have a notebook with me and have managed a few ideas in that but nothing more.
Today I have spent a little while trying to catch up with emails and blogs while resting for most of the time but please accept my apologies if I don't get back to you as quickly as usual.
