I found this shell on the lawn in the back garden when I went out there this morning to feed the birds. Thought it might do for Tiny Tuesday. Thanks to dbifulco for hosting.
When I woke up this morning the pain wasn't too bad and I was cautiously optimistic that I might be on the mend. Turns out I was being too optimistic as the pain returned later worse than ever.
I had an appointment with my own GP this afternoon. She had the results of the blood tests from Friday. Liver - OK. Kidneys - OK. Pancreas - OK. I haven't got diabetes or leukemia - or some other things which I have forgotten. Urine tests didn't show up anything bad either. So that was all very positive. The doctor thought the pain might be due to " sludge in my bile duct". So she is arranging for me to have a scan. I will get a letter in the post. More waiting. Meanwhile I keep taking codeine ( and laxatives)
After seeing the doctor I headed for Tesco for a bit of shopping. I bumped into a lady ( also called Dorothy ) who used to go to my Slimming Group. We always sat next to each other. She stopped coming to group a couple of years ago after her husband died unexpectedly. It was lovely to see her today and have a catch up. She has put on a lot of weight and is thinking of coming back to Slimming Group. She was pleased to hear that I still go to group so that if she returns at least she will know somebody. I hope she does decide to come back as she needs to lose weight after recently being diagnosed as diabetic.
When I got back home the pain was really bad so I took codeine and sat on the sofa with a hot water bottle and just took it easy. I had a recipe ready to make something for my tea but in the end I couldn't be bothered to start chopping veg etc so I just opened a tin of soup.
