Headless Chicken

I've not blogged for a while although I probably should have; this is good therapy. I've basically been really busy with interviews which unfortunately have not been successful so far. I have also received a bit of a hammer blow regarding my long term health which has come as a bit of a shock to me and my wife. To be honest I'm still trying to get my head around it, will write more later.

It hasn't helped that at the moment the doctors (and I) are still baffled by a 20% drop in lung function that hasn't responded to IVs (IVs FEV1 = 2.35, FVC = 3.35) which hasn't really improved since the start (of the IVs, although FVC went up from 3.0). I also had a severe gastric DIOS blockage on Monday. You can tell the severe ones because they are the ones you throw up on. They are the one's you end up going to A&E for. Thankfully I avoided it but only by the skin of my teeth. Scary times...However there may be some good news in the new year which I am keeping everything crossed for.

That's it for now; I've got an extremely dull compulsory online exam to study for next Wednesday so I need to get cracking with the brainwash. Wish me luck ;-)
