Week 16 One Daily Positive and Project 365

Peter finished painting the new extension and started the floor tiles. The builders are back out on the 2nd of May to sort out the outside drainage and re seal a window that leaked during heavy rain.

I've been so tired and breathless this week with chest pains and I've been really anxious about all the blood tests, injections and appointments with various people in various locations. This week I've had a blood test, a Vit B injections and a consultation with the haematologist, and repeat for the next 4 weeks. I'm going to bed and sleeping for about 2 hours every afternoon, then 8-10 hours each night

107 Sunday Woke at 8am and back to sleep 9-10am. Off to Worcester to buy tiles for the new extension, we had a coffee and did a food shop. Peter cooked a late lunch/early dinner around 4pm, he then went to the ub to watch the football and I had a sleep on the sofa. Evening spent in the loft rooms tidying away and blogging, before sitting in front of the TV, bath and bed by 9pm.

New tiles for the extension

108 Monday Back to school. I was exhausted and had chest pain, very sleepy, feet and hands hurting. I managed to do a small bit of ironing, bath and early bed.

Cat hair everywhere so needed a groom

109 Tuesday Slept solidly for 10 hours, woke feeling tired. I left work early to have a blood test at the hospital, planted a hedgerow in the front garden, not as strenuous as it sounds, the ground was very soft. Had a bath, finished the ironing, bed early feeling drained and chest pains worsening.

110 Wednesday No alarm as I had a telephone consultation with the haematologist. Late into work, day passed quickly. All I managed at home was making my tea, I spent the afternoon and evening in bed sleeping.

Dog and cat finishing their Easter eggs

111 Thursday A long day, feeling exhausted. Peter collected me from work and we went for a coffee. The rest of the afternoon and evening was spent painting my nails and toning my hair. Peter went to the pub to watch football and I was in bed by 9.30pm.

I watched the snooker as I didn't have the energy to get the remote

112 Friday Had the first of my 7 Vitamin B12 jabs, late into work and sent home, day spent in my chair reading my book, then evening spent with friend with chips.

Tiling going down

113 Saturday Peter dropped me and Bob in town, I had a coffee and took a leisurely walk home. I hung some washing outside on the line and planted some seeds, dinner was cooked and evening spent in front of TV.

It was harder clearing up the mess the it was planting the seeds

  1. No wonder you are feeling anxious with all of the tests and medical things you have going on. It sounds like something is off with you with all of the sleeping you are doing. Sending love and hugs, I hope you feel better soon.
    I did some gardening yesterday and it was so easy with the ground being soft.
    I love the look of the new tiles. x

    1. the new tiles are fab and now covered with a rug

  2. that's a lot of medical things going on. Are they still doing more tests? Glad that the new tiles are going down, hopefully it feels like things are progressing well there.

  3. Sorry to hear that you are feeling unwell again. Hopefully they will get to the bottom of it soon and that the injections will help. The extension is looking good

  4. Sorry to hear that you’re struggling with tiredness and chest pains. It sounds like a lot of blood tests going on for you at the moment and I hope they help give some answers so things can be improve for you. I didn’t know you could get Easter eggs for dogs and cats – they look like they’re enjoying them. The extension looks like it is coming along nicely. #project365
