Good week :D

Over the last week I had been feeling more tired and been coughing more etc- all the usual symptoms that my chest infection was coming back. So when I booked to have my port flushed (the little tube/barrel thing under my skin where my IV meds go) I decided to see if I could see a doc too. Went up and did a lung function test and did my usual sats and weight, and surprisingly they came back pretty good! My lung function had dropped to FEV1 62% and FEV2 86%, which is a decrease of about 8% and thankfully my weight had stayed the same!! :D Barbara, one of the docs, said that she didn't feel I needed IVs yet, so gave my some oral meds. I hateee these ones though because you can't have milk or iron tabs 2 hours before or after, so it's difficult to time. Plus they make me feel so sick :( but if they work then I don't mind. So fingers crossed that with this course of meds, plus really good physio, I might not need IVs for a while.

This week, I went fishing for the first time ever. It weren't as boring as I'd expected, but if we had gone during the day I reckon I would have enjoyed it more because I would actually be able to see my rod! Didn't catch anything though :( and couldn't take any pics because mysteriously, my flash on my camera has broken.. :S

Also, I'm so proud of myself- I fixed the boiler with no help from any men. Al and his mate came up with every excuse under the sun as to why they 'couldn't fix it', but by simply ringing up this boiler women, she helped me figure out what was wrong with it and said I could easily fix it myself :D

Angel is being so cheeky at the moment! She runs round the house like lightning and keeps trying to dig up our laminate flooring lol :P and she's so cute, she now jumps up on the sofa when I'm sitting on it for a stroke :)
