Bad news, followed by good news, followed by better news.

Of course none of this news affects you guys in any way, except of course those of you who can't go on with out knowing the ins and out of my life.  Who wouldn't?  I do lead such a glamorous lifestyle.  YEAH RIGHT!

I just thought I should do a little post based on what's been happening to me the last few days.

First the bad news, I'm sick...again.

Yep, the mean ulcerative colitis has reared its ugly head again and decided it's time I had a flare up.  I've been feeling all icky for about a week now and then on Monday it hit at full force.  It's finally dying down, and I'm starting to feel better, but as with everyone, after you've been sick you feel tired.  I'm just grateful it wasn't so bad that I needed to go back into hospital.  Nothing that a good haul of legal drugs and huggles couldn't cure.  So I'm feeling a bit better, but I apologize for my absence, I spent the week in Danny's in bed drinking tea and being told not to move, while I was waited on.  So, I guess it wasn't the end of the world, I did clock in on some reading and did play on the PS3 for hours on end.  So, yes, feel sorry for me.  It's so horrible having to play games for hours on end, and watch endless amounts of films.  Who's want that? Haha.

The good news and the great news next.  I can't decide which is better, because they're both equally awesome and have made this week a lot more bearable.  I'd probably be down in the dumps moaning about being sick again if it wasn't for these.  So I'll start with the one that ties in with me being sick.

I had another one of my wonderful hospital appointments again.  This time with a new doctor, and he was lovely.  Better than a lot of them who like to talk down to me because I'm only 24 and obviously don't know what's going on (grrr, I hate it when Dr's do that).  Any way, he's a specialist in bowels.  What a fun speciality right?  I was referred to him because the one of my Dr's has been hinting at the possibility of more surgery.  Which is always fun.  Some of you who have read my Disappearing Act post from a few months ago know that I have a colostomy bag due to some emergency surgery.  Well the new Dr informed me that the only reason I have got the colostomy bag was because the day I had to go in surgery there wasn't a bowel surgeon in and they just did what they think they had to.  Turns out, they didn't.  They where meant to do something completely different.  But, hey, at the end of the day they saved my life.  Well the new Dr has decided, it's time to fix that mistake and give me a reversal.  What will need to be done is one huge surgery and one little surgery and then possibly some more after that, over quite a few months, and that they don't do it any where near where I live so I'll be put far from home with specialists.  But I don't care.  I'm super excited!!!  I've been trying to get this surgery for the past 2 years and I'm finally able too.  So, YAY!

And the second bit of news is that Danny has asked me to move in with him.  I've been so excited I've barely noticed being sick, seen as he's already brought us our first piece of moving in together...things?  A cup.  My first new cup for the new house.  I'm not allowed to use it till we actually do a get a place, but it's big and has Dr Who on it so I'm happy.  As of today, we have started looking.  I'm turning all adult-like.  It's creepy.  I'm going to be very poor too.  Any tips on how to live away from your mum and dad?  Haha.  I'm going to fail.  But hey, it's a new adventure!


  1. So pleased for you and your good news! Sorry to hear that you've not been very well though. All the best with moving in and with the surgeries. xxxx

  2. I wish you best of luck!

  3. I'm sorry you've been so ill, my lovely! Glad to hear you are feeling a little better, and the surgery sounds like brilliant news! (Well, as brilliant as any surgery can be... but you know what I mean!) And congratulations on moving in with your boyfriend. Just one question. Which Dr Who is on the cup???

  4. Thank you girls!

    And the Dr Who cup is Matt Smith, I like him so I'm happy. He knows if he'd brought home a Chris Eccleston cup he would have had a riot. Although David Tenant and Tom Baker would have also been accepted lol
