Another year on
I've just had my six monthly checkup and there's nothing to report. Dr Lyttleton is happy with my blood results, my weight is stable, my health is generally good, my various conditions are currently behaving themselves. The mild Crohn's is under control with just the occasional twinge. I'm ok as long as I don't get too tired. My gastric reflux ditto. I'm hoping that dosing it with Omeprazole in the mornings and Gaviscon in the evening will prevent a return of the dreaded pharygitis this winter. So far, so good. I'm still working three days a week, and I'm still writing, recording and performing my songs. A recent highlight was an invitation to sing at a festival in Norway. It was very stressful getting the flights organised, but we got there (my son and I)and our music was very well received. Maybe we'll get other invites in the future. One thing is certain, they will need to be less intensive than the hardcore touring I was doing a few years ago, when we travelled miles and played shows every night. I know that would make me ill, and I've had enough of that, thank you very much! So- nothing to report. That's a good thing. For anyone who has been diagnosed with CLL recently, please read the posts back to the beginning. It's amazing what can be done these days.
