  • Blog Post: Update

    well one might say it has been a successful day for me today. Have arranged a couple of socials and visits, had a visitor, had a phone call from a good friend (very difficult to express feelings this way - blog much easier), made headway on additional food via mouth (including a stab at some tuna and...
  • Blog Post: TechnoJoy

Generally speaking I am physically feeling better but reliant on my brilliant wife to look after me due to med requirements and not being able to drive etc. am oh so conscious that I am not communicating by voice...
  • Blog Post: Slow Release Pain Relief

    Now 0130hrs and am just waiting for PEG feed to force down a few more millilitres so I can tick another portion off my nutrition list. Switched to long lasting pain relief yesterday evening. Good news is that the tablet offers 12 hours pain relief, therefore in theory that could equal twelve hours unbroken...
  • Blog Post: On to Morphine...

    Finally realised that I had to step up pain relief to morphine last night. My account of last night is pretty graphic so skip this blog if you need to... First spoonful at 5pm made me feel a little nauseous, a bit light headed and slightly number to the pain. I soon realised that the initial dosage of...
  • Blog Post: Pain Train Gathers Speed

    Started tube feeding yesterday (Monday) evening, and was really lazy by not eating anything by mouth. Made up for it by drinking a thick tasty beverage in the form of a chocolate complan shake (its about as good as it gets!). Stomach gurgled throughout the night. Despite being given the morphine yesterday...
  • Blog Post: Garden Pub Name

Our house is named Stanhope (which is an old car, or two seater horse drawn carriage - google it for pictures) and I want that name in the title. Conventional...
  • Blog Post: Not Another Manic Monday

    And so, into Week number 4 of treatment and I seem to have forgotten the normal monday morning panic of getting back into work after a weekend off, of having to quickly prioritise tasks for the week ahead against all the Monday morning fastballs, and having to rejig my programme to suit. Today, to be...
  • Blog Post: Day 9 - Let The Battle Commence...

    Another lovely day in Wiltshire but what an awful night's sleep. Mouth was drier than a dry thing and tasted of a weathered and worn flip flop. Needed to sip water constantly through the night and feel tired to say the least this morning. I am hoping it is the Pepsi I drank for supper that caused...
  • Blog Post: Day 8 - The Guilt Trip...

    So into week 2 of RT we go, and after a brilliant weekend am now feeling a bit guilty. Am guilty of having to take so much time off work and others having to cover my desk. I am guilty of not being that poorly compared to others around me in the hospital (some who look really ill), and the online head...
  • Blog Post: Day 7 - The Calm Before The Storm...

    Just a short post today as Sunday is the day of rest. Had a really good day yesterday and great to see mam and dad. Appetite back now not feeling sick so fired four ham sandwiches down for lunch and the spare ribs at the pub for dinner in the evening, only water to wash it down though, and the BBQ spices...
