i’ve emailed some of you this information in one form or another but couldn’t be bothered working out how to say it again, so i’ve just cut and pasted (sorry!).

i had my ultrasound this morning, with lots of cold goo and someone prodding and poking my abdomen. it’s never a good sign when, as soon as they put the imaging thing on your abdomen, the lab technician goes ‘whoa’. she said that I had an unbelievable number of gall stones for someone so young – just lucky I guess. she had no idea what ‘cholangitis’ was (“we had to look it up in the book”), so i’m guessing it’s not really your run-of-the-mill kind of condition. she did say that the gall bladder doesn’t look inflamed, so i guess that’s a good thing. she also said “I must say, you’ve got a really good attitude about it all” which makes me wonder whether i should be freaking out more. i choose not to.

the doctor also rang and said my latest blood test shows an improvement, so it looks like we’re on the right track. hurrah! I am starting to feel a bit better so I think the antibiotics are helping, but I’m still pretty out of it. I have maybe a couple of ‘good’ hours, and then need to lie down again. i honestly thought i would be well enough to be at work this week, but the week’s almost over and it doesn’t look like i’m going to get there…
