Weight and Stuff Report – 1 June 2018

Weight:  176.8 pounds (12 stone 8.8 pounds, 80.2 kg)
Steps: Not many

Shock horror, my weight’s up a bit today, which is a good thing, as it means this feeding thing is working. (And I’m not promising these things will be appearing every day, just when there’s something to report).

Talking of feeding, I had a bit of a mare with the technology last night, as it kept beeping and insisting there was a blockage. I eventually had to disconnect the tubes from the thing hanging out of my nose and flush water in directly – there was indeed a bit of resistance, but once the water had worked through, everything worked as it should. Though this process may have involved me whining a bit about wanting to go to sleep…

And talking of feeding again, I had the expected call from the supplier telling me they would be delivering my first monthly batch on Tuesday. Well, that would have been fine, but I had a letter this morning giving me my new appointment schedule at the Freeman Hospital, and yes, the first appointment is, you guessed it, on Tuesday. So, I called the supplier and they’ve rearranged that for Wednesday.

I managed to sort out some other admin tasks this morning – including making a claim for a bit of cash for being in hospital for eight nights[1], and getting a form for getting cash for having chemotherapy[2].

[1] I have BUPA health insurance through work, and one thing they do is pay cash if you have certain NHS treatment (on the grounds that it’s a lot cheaper for them that way!)
[2] So when I’m sitting there with a needle delivering potions into me, I can console myself with the knowledge that I’m getting paid for it…
