Well arrived home Friday Arvo after 12 days in hospital as Surgeon was worried that the guts might open up again or bleed internally. Got my 32 staples out yesterday and have a Ultrasound this Friday for internal bleed or clear. Feel ok but energy levels are down probably from the Glandular Fever I have.

It is gunna be a slow process getting fit again as I have a corset on and it feels really awkward to walk even without it but he reckons another 4 weeks and Muscles should have healed by then. The Nurse who took my staples out yesterday is the first person I have met that knew of the Fixhepc website and Doc Freeman, I was wrapt as she had really nice things to say about Sir Doc Freeman.

Saw my Doc locally Monday and he was telling me he has diagnosed 8 patients with either Ross River or Dengue Fever in last week just him and their are 5 docs in his mob and another 10 or so in town plus the almighty hospital. I am still waiting for the Shire to start Fogging at least as there are a heap of kids up here.

Great to read you are Free London Girl and hope olm8 Archer is going strong.

Lucky they built you jungle tough!

Well I have been feeling good but guts still needs exercise but very slowly getting there. Went down to Perth last week for my MRI and get results this coming Wednesday.

Saw my Nurse at SCGH while I was there and even Receptionist reckon I look healthy, I feel I need to lose about 10kg as I am now 100.01kg which is a bit different to my 74.8kg last April 2016. Nurse is Great and really takes an interest and is very knowledgeable, she updates me when something is wrong or coming up etc.

I can get around really well it is just the initial 30 secs or so to get blood flowing in the legs after sitting down. My shoulder is still a worry after the op in April and I didnt help it by carrying packs of large coles water bottles and am still sore but luckily all my ailments are only Minor.

Still only on Rifaximan and Pantaprazole 1 tab twice a day, just waiting on all clear Wednesday and Whafukinhoo back into the Big Game. It is unreal as we only spoke about it the other day when Abia's 7 year Memorium came up, I was on 27 pills plus injections of that Killer treatment Riba sumthin.

Hope everyone is going well and hoping to get to meet the Doc one day when he gets to a warmer climate.

Hi Woobia,

The army will only let 18 yo recruits carry 25 kg because if you load up their young bodies with too much more they wear out.

You've loaded yourself up with that, but you can't just take it off for a breather!

Yo Doc I am hoping, nah I will not be taking it off for a breather I will be losing it for good, slowly work it off.

This will test my determination and pig headedness but after being on it for 3 years it really helped me with fitness and attitude.

Fuk it is so hard to get going though I need a Rocket under my ass.

Thanks Doc.
