I have not been well of late. I have been under the weather for about a month now.
I won’t go into the gory details but it looks like I may have Diverticular Disease. It is certainly not a nice condition to have, but suffice to say the symptoms, pain and the medication has kept me away from one of the things I love doing, and that is living and writing about sustainable living, and the day job that I enjoy.
Depending on how I go over the next few days, and if it doesn’t settle down, I will probably be admitted to hospital for an nice big dose of IV antibiotics to kill off any persistant bacteria that has caused bleeding. Like I said, not nice. Then I get the pleasure of receiving a colonoscopy to check out what is really going on in the nether regions once the large intestine calms down a bit. All I can say is thank goodness for modern medicine.
Anyway, enough medical stuff for one day. It is off to bed early so that I can muster myself into work tomorrow. If I am not around much, I wish you a happy Earth Hour, but please don’t just celebrate the hour. Think of it as the stepping stone to a great sustainable lifestyle and do a bit of research about the real big issues facing us all today.
