Welcome to my annual health update - oh, suck it up, I need some record of how my illness is progressing – better here than in a huge filing cabinet ... I have enough junk in my house!

This year, life has been good … well, as good as it gets when you’re a neurological cripple, of uncertain prognosis and progression, with skin cancer. OK, that’s so NOT good but, really, it’s all relative, trust me on this – or take a look at previous postings. No hospital, no drugs – OK, not many drugs and NO IV drugs. In over twelve years, this has only happened one other year – 1999/2000!

I should end now, right, on the good news? Hah! You know me, it’s never that simple and sometimes, you just gotta sweat the small stuff …

With said ‘small stuff’, I’ve been SO sick and I am totally fed up with it. Christmas Day and Boxing Day were OK but, on the day after, I got a tickle in my throat.  Something viral. It’s been horrendous! Housebound for two whole weeks.

I welcomed in the New Year vomiting wildly – and I do mean projectile vomiting … violently ... from 2am to 8am. It was dire.  I had hoped to, you know, have fun over the holiday period but NADA, NIX, NOTHING!  We even had to cancel our Helene Darroze lunch for New Years Day.  How irritating is that?

Hello, 2010. Really looking and feeling good!

Then, as I was thinking that I was a bit better, we ventured out to a local restaurant. I caught a secondary virus and got ill again plus, as if life could get any worse, EaZyD got sick. January ... gone!

Wouldn't you know, EaZyD got sick on a Sunday, was pretty bad until the Tuesday but seemed to start getting better Wednesday and was back to work Thursday.  Whilst I am glad he was not sick for long (really, I am!), what is with that?
