A Week Trapped

Published by MarkE in the blog MarkE's blog. Views: 831

Well, a fun week that was- housebound by a viral infection and likely a similar week about to follow.

Symptoms: sore throat, aching body, cottonwool brains, constant hacking cough, sneezing fit to bust, sore nose, lips cheesegrated to heck and back, and just to top it all off every so often I get the "ring of doom" in my central vision and (lacking peripheral vision as I am these days) so effectively blind for a while...

Oh, and to complete the moan: also just got my date through for a colonoscopy- camera each end (hopefully in turn...) looking for a cause for my current anaemia. Preceded by industrial strength laxative in a double dose and a period of every diabetic's favourite pastime, "nil by mouth". Really starting to dislike this year.

Anyway, enough moaning for one post. Away home friends and I truly hope you all have a good time until I post again.
