October 7th – Blood and Poo Days

1999:  Up at 6.15 and dragged mum out of bed again (things are looking up – two mornings running without argument).  Mum put my Southend United shirt on this morning – which came down past my knees.  She said it looked silly.  I thought it looked great and insisted on keeping it on.  Was hyper and pooey at Edons today and was extremely tired by the time mum collected me and last I know mum was cooking dinner.

2019: Arghh.  Took my forms to James Paget Hospital to get my bloods done for Wednesdays infusion but had taken my poo form instead. Had to go home, get the correct forms and then go to Beccles Hospital round the corner from me, only to find the phlebotomy department shut.

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!
