18th -20th September 2020 - Post Comment Love

My last week of isolation and all the outside work is done, garden prepared for winter and the sheds and gates painted. I've taken some time to just rest this week, been reading and just chilling out, mostly in the garden as I really love being outdoors. I managed a cup of tea in the garden around 6-7am in Dubai, but then it gets too hot to enjoy being outdoors.

I had a hospital appointment this week with the haematologist to try and get to the bottom of why I'm not storing iron. It's been a journey over 3 years, including seeing an oncologist and a bone marrow biopsy. My only physical symptoms are lethargy and breathlessness, it's all been blood test led investigations. Basically it's iron infusions from now on every 4 months and apparently my white blood cell count just goes up and down, probably stress related, but I could've told them that without a bone marrow biopsy.

I've a few family visits in the planning for next week and I'm also hoping to take Bob camping to South Wales for a few days before it gets too cold.

Stephanie and I would love to know what you've been up to this week.

  1. So glad you have got some family visits and a mini camping break in the pipeline for when you are released! Isolation must be weird, but glad you have rested up this week and enjoyed the glorious weather, it has been lovely, even up here in Manchester! :) A tad cooler than you are used to in Dubai though! I hope the iron infusions work, it has been one heck of a journey for you on that side, but really do hope this works! Sending big socially distanced hugs from Manchester! Sim x # PoCoLo
