Further dispatches

Thank you all for your kind wishes. It's been a real treat for both of us to get your comments despite being stuck away in this little room! The magic of blogging!

The news from today is Dotter has definitely had acute pancreatitis, and thankfully there has been no organ damage (basically digestive enzymes are released in high levels and can digest your liver etc). Also no sign of gallstones. Her blood tests are normal again, too. Phew.

They don't know why she got it, it's not linked with diabetes. Can be viral. She was thrilled to be allowed to eat again this afternoon, I don't think a cheese sandwich was ever enjoyed as much! We're still in hospital for another night, and should be coming home tomorrow.

Lulu has been to visit, but had to be taken home in disgrace after being caught pole dancing on Dotter's drip machine!

Ok, that's all the "sms" typing I can handle for tonight! But at least I found the return key-

  7. Very glad things are looking up. I hope it's just a weird one-off occurance. Lulu is such an attention seeker. I'm sure she couldn't cope with Dottet getting so much attention.

  13. Sorry to hear about this but glad to know that all appears right an normal again. Pancreatitis is an absolute howler of a condition - literally. My dad has it and when he had his first attack he said that it hurt worse than his heart attack pain!
