I’d like to thank everyone who left a comment last week wishing me well for the Colonoscopy on Thursday. The procedure itself wasn’t too bad, but it has taken until today for me to start feeling back to normal. The diagnosis at the end of it is Crohn’s Colitis, but luckily only moderately active. I have to wait for an appointment to see the Consultant at the Hospital in the next few weeks to discuss any treatment/management, but as I’ve been symptom free for a while now I think that it wil probably be a case of carrying on with a sensible diet and just waiting to see how things go. You know the old saying “every cloud has a silver lining” – well the one good thing to come out of the last week is I’ve lost half a stone in weight LOL. I’m sure it won’t stay off for long as I get back to eating normally but it’s good to see those scales moving in the right direction for a change!
I have been stitching this week, but not really sticking much to my rotation, apart from my SAL days, I’ve just been working on whatever takes my fancy. It did take ALL of my willpower not to start the new Passione Ricamo chart I bought at Polstitches to cheer myself up a bit, and if it wasn’t for the fact that I haven’t made a working copy of the chart yet I don’t think I could have resisted.
First up, my SAL with Claire – Is That All? This is coming along well, Claire is still ahead of me though – you can see her progress here.
Next up, Growth Rings and Grand Marquoir SAL.
And finally, Cirque des Triangles. I got loads done on this yesterday and finished page 4, which is bottom left. I wish a could get a decent picture of this, it looks so much better in real life.
I have been a bit slack on my blog reading/commenting this week. I will definitely try and catch up this weekend, a lovely long Bank Holiday weekend here in the UK, but as the weather is fantastic today, blue skies and not even a breeze, I think I shall sit in the garden for a while today and watch Phill working LOL.
