May 30th – Preparation Speech

1999:  Two wee’s on my bedroom carpet. and one on the lounge carpet this morning.  Mum and I had an afternoon nap, without nappies, and when I woke up I told mum I wanted to do a wee which I did on the toilet and my bed was dry.  Mum was very pleased with me but wonders why I only stay dry when I’m sleeping.  It’s obvious really, there’s far too much going on in waking hours to interrupt and go to the loo!  We saw lots of fighter planes going over the garden ready for tomorrows air show at Southend.  I keep making mum laugh because if she doesn’t understand what I am saying, I look up to the ceiling and say ‘um’ while I try and find another word or sound to try and get my point across.  This morning I kept saying ‘dain’, eventually I had to say ‘choo, choo’!  Mum has a query though – I start many words with ‘d’ – dack (Jack), dain (train), dim (swim) etc., So why is a dog “gog”!  For which I have no answer.

2019:  Today I was supposed to have my 3rd or 4th colonoscopy but, due to  prep gear getting thrown out at the post office, it didn’t go ahead.  I now have to wait for another appointment but I did get appointment for IBD nurse through the post today so will just keep on with the steroids until then.

I may do stupid things and make light of them but deep down there’s a reason and I love exploration, even if I cannot fully understand the outcome!
