Much weaker now...

Written by Mike

I’ve got much weaker the last few days, and getting around or just doing stuff is getting very difficult. I think I am close to the end, but I’m not there yet in my head nor have I completed what I set out to do.

0In the last few days I’ve had an overnight in the hospital to drain off more fluid that had built up in my abdomen. First time around before Christmas they managed to drain off over 8L, this time they managed to get 7.2L.

It was a result in that it took the pressure off my abdomen and at the same time lost the ‘eight-and-a-half-months’ pregnant look.

The downside seems to have been that I’ve picked up an infection of some sort that’s massively damaged my ability to do stuff, but we’re optimistic the anti-biotics will get to work on fixing that.

So in summary it’s been a time of taking litres of morphine to control the pain and trying to shake off the infection. Long may that last…
