from the hospital

Apologies for any typos in this post or bad grammar that may arise, I am writing this from my mobile. Technology is awesome as it enables you to blog with your thumb from a hospital ward! Amazing stuff.

I am currently sat by my bed with a drip into my arm and things are beginning to improve slowly. However I shall say this first, I may be here till Friday evening! That is the worst case scenario and what I am now preparing myself for.

My blood pressure had dropped very low but the readings taken since my admission last night have gradually gone upwards, thus nearing my usual level. Weight has improved by a kilo but needs bettering. Creatinine level today has dropped from the hideous level of 379 to 279 so appears to be recovering. This must return to my regular level before I go back home and they also want to do the biopsy this week dependant on the creatinine.

Currently awaiting an ultrasound test…

Whoops forgot to update the blog

The past week has been a bit of a nightmare to be honest but I am now back home, I was discharged on Tuesday but since then still haven’t been all that well. In fact I have had no motivation to update the blog, check emails, tweet or even (most importantly) eat properly!

I am starting to feel better today, I have had more of an appetite – So normal service shall resume over the next couple of days and most definitely as soon as the New Year kicks in.

Cake master

It has been the long running joke in our family about my love for cake. As a kid when we used to spend a night or two with my grandparents at their Gloucestershire home, Grandma would always serve up cake for tea. We would all have a slice and I would often have a second piece then a third, a fourth and if I didnt end up reducing it to a couple of crumbs, grandma would phone my mum to report that I must be ill. What should she do?

Fast forward 30 years to last Sunday. I turned down the offer of my Mums cake. I was actually ill and Grandma would have done a double take had she still been alive. My Wife, dad and Mum laughed out loud. The Cake man had refused his slice of Victoria and there will be no crumbs today!

I am an ardent connisseur of cake and always have been. The classic Victoria Sponge tops the list followed by Swiss Roll, strawberry tart, iced buns, fruit cake and I love those little fairy cakes as just another one wont hurt. Will it!

Now I am wondering if I could become a cake reviewer? Travelling the world? You would always be able to find me, just follow the crumbs…
