First day of Summer 2013

31 May

That’s tomorrow 🙂

I don’t really know where to start or what to write as it’s been a while, a long while!

Health wise, my Crohn’s is in remission and the latest blood tests show my inflammation markers are normal. My iron levels are slightly low, they are at 8 when they should be 15, but the doctor said this doesn’t quite class me as anaemic. I’ve got some Spatone sachets to try to mix with juice etc as I don’t get on overly well with iron tablets. I seem to remember having those sachets before and not being a big fan, but going to try again as I really want to have the best chance of having good health altogether and good energy levels. Haven’t seen my consultant for sometime with one thing and another and not being in one place, so I’m seeing him towards the end of June hopefully for a review. The doctor on the phone who gave me my blood results explained that because I’ve had an ileostomy formed, and therefore have a shorter bowel than a person without, this is most likely the reason why I always have trouble with my iron levels and find it hard to absorb iron and keep a constant level within my body.

Thank you for all your comments & to my readers who have supported me & always do with this blog no matter how much of a gap I go between posting. It’s been fantastic & really heart-warming to see the amount of people still visiting, reading and benefiting from this.

Best wishes.
