What profit is there in my blood...

I won't be online for about a week. Time once again to go stay in hospital and be a human pincushion (no food, just water for 3 whole days). Let's hope they do it properly this time and get some meaningful results.

I'm hoping the doctors involved are a little more skilled than the last lot. 7 attempts to get a cannula into my arm is not acceptable. Not that it's used to take any samples, the cannula is in case I go hypo and they have to get some glucose into me fast.

Me no like.

Despite doing regular hospital visiting, I don't think I could cope with one attempt to insert a cannula ... So I think you are very brave!

Good luck to you, Rita. I will pray for you.

I truly hope that having gone through such an ordeal there are at least some answers.
While I know "modern" medicine doesn't have nearly as many answers as some doctors might have us think- I feel sure that with a bit more thought and attention paid to the PERSON who has the illness, that more answers could be found.
I am tired of medics who can't see anything that doesn't show up on a machine in big neon colours.

PS. I've been muttering about this for a while over cancer research. I am sure they would make more headway if they stopped peering at cancer and started looking closely at people with or who have had cancer.

Maybe prayers to St Sebastian ... !

Maybe just prayers, but them at least diligently. Do get well and keep us out of mischief.
