Blood test results

Today I went to see the specialist. He had in front of him 3 new sets of blood test results (plus the earlier ones). Just about everything that is being tracked that was out of range has improved significantly and consistently. Three of the five liver numbers he has been tracking have returned to their normal ranges. There are a couple of other indicators that have moved the wrong way, but that can easilly be explained by the pain weekend I had. So all in all very good news. The specialists departing words were " onwards and upwards". I am still very much underpowered and not as energetic as I was before the pain episode, but each day is a little better for me energy wise. I also wake up most mornings (actually often the very early morning eg 3am) with a fever. These have all gone after my morning sleep, but can be quite draining to go through. All part of the healing process though. I have been finding it tough to feel so weak and underpowered, but it is very good to get reassured by such positive blood test results.

Onwards and upwards is my favourite saying... hang in there Andrew and be kind to yourself, getting well is a process and the body has to do its own thing to come right. Praying for you x
