Exercise Pts:

Quiet day again today, got up early, did 30 mins weights (woohoo), made my own breakfast (eggs, bacon and toast - double woohoo) and sat back watched some early morning tv till kids woke up.

Went back to bed bout 11.30 am resting while Toni & Michael went to the radiology clinic for an x-ray and ultrasound on her shoulder (apparently it shows some inflammation they said, full results on Friday)

Got up when they returned and Michael and I then went to the doctor's to get our results.  He is fine, no diabetes in sight which was a great relief, little bit high on cholesterol but nothing dramatic.  She did do a swab though on the coloured patch on the front of his leg to see if we can determine what it is.

Me, well, a little improvement like by 1 with Vitamin D and Iron but nowhere near what she thought I should have improved, so when I have my next lot of bloods in a month for Vit B12 and thryroid and to test for infection we'll double check these results today.

As for infection, I'm now officially INFECTION FREE :) BUT she is keeping me on 2 tabs 4 times a day of Clindamycin for another month to make sure it doesn't return on the lower dose, if still free after then, I'm off tablets :)

OHHHH best news too is that I am NOT diabetic.. (hear that all you hospital doctors that insist I MUST be with my size and all even after they do tests they don't believe that I'm not geez) - I'm 4.3 and Michael was 4.9 (nah nah I beat you LOL)

So more tests in one month, but till then, reduced doses of antibiotics, 1 tab thyroxine, 1 tab vit d and 1 tab iron - that's it :)

Though she is insisting I sit outside more which I am trying to do..

Ok tonight will be our curried sausages with ? on the side LOL haven't decided, but the kids want hash browns and they said I could have one or two with steamed vegies .. sounds nice.

Back later :)

PM Update

I escaped!!! LOL Michael was going up to the shop tonight (9.00 pm) and said if you make it out to the car before me you can come too.. well, I waddled quick and got a trip up to the shops :) woohoo.

Mmmmmm curried sausages are so yummy and we ended up having potato gems and steamed vegies on the side plus a small crusty roll, heaven!
