So what's been going on since my last post? As ever something of a mixed bag!
Thankfully the positives outweigh the negatives this time out and it's been largely steady progress in all areas! But ever the pessimist it seems only right to start with those negatives!! And once again it's those bloody infections!
....having spent the first two weeks of the new year on antibiotics and largely house bound, I thought the coast was clear.... but alas a month on, the shivers and temperature returned worse than ever really! And despite my familiarity with the more common symptoms of a water infection this one threw in something of a curve ball (sadly all to literally!). It seems the bladder is not an isolated area and the infection managed to find its way elsewhere (again a parental guidance warning here!!) The elsewhere being one of my balls!! Which very very worryingly was about the size of a jacket potato (I hope no one's eating whilst reading this!)
So upon discovering this I was literally straight onto the doctor who sent me off to Whiston hospital to get some intravenous antibiotics and more importantly anti-inflammatories! and this all resulted in a three night hospital stay, which I was far from pleased about as it was quite a setback and I never imagined in my worst nightmares I'd have so many males getting acquainted with my testicles!! ....fingers crossed, all now seems well and I have an appointment with a specialist to try and get to the bottom of these infections, as the current rate of one a month isn't really suiting me too well!
Thankfully that's about it on the downside and there's been plenty on the upside too....
In other news I'm also going to be best man for my mate Bebbo who has bitten the bullet and proposed to Emma so massive congrats to the two of them, and in other wedding related news, another pal is off to Munich this weekend for his stag do and with some trepidation I am heading over there for a night, Paul is coming with me in case of any problems but I'm not sure who's going to be looking after who, once the beer is involved! But here's hoping that all runs smoothly and I survive the weekend! and fyi don't break your neck it makes travel insurance pretty pricey!! ....oh and I'm a little nervous as to what might happen when going through airport security what with two big metal rods in my neck!!
All ticket affair....see the poster attached. But there's 200 available so get snapping them up and I'll look forward to catching up with people there.
Thanks as ever, will try and increase the frequency of updates again!!
