Fun and Games in Papworth Everard

So as of tomorrow I am going to be incarcerated without the option of parole at Papworth for two weeks. I am going to be having lots of lovely strong drugs, a chest CT, a three day sugar monitoring test thing and a bronchoscopy (I think thats how its spelt) although hopefully the last one won't happen as it sounds truly nasty. Having an endoscope inserted right to the bottom of my lung is not my idea of fun, especially as you are only sedated and not unconcious-urgh. The whole point of this ordeal is to try and get my lung function back up from the rather crap 60% its currently hovering around and to find out if I my pancreas has packed up to the extent that I am now diabetic as well- oh life is so much fun! But if all this stuff does work and the insulin I may have to take helps me feel more human then that is all good and will be wonderfull indeed! If they've got internet on the ward then I may post a couple of times to show how much fun I am having, although it may be more of a rant of just how bored I am giong to be..... See you on the other side.....

I don't think I've ever heard you discuss your CF with us (it's kind of an insight), the hospital sounds trying to say the least. But I'm so glad you're home and feeling better! Was sorry I didn't know you were going in, can always be told - nothing more important :-)
