How ironic that a couple of hours after writing about how happy l was yesterday enjoying having time to myself at home l suddenly doubled over in pain and took to my bed. But the pain just got worse and worse and at 10pm l found myself in a taxi heading for Emergency. After several tests they put me in the observation room and ran more tests.

Have just found out that they want to operate this afternoon to drain the liquid they found in my lower abdomen. They also think l may have a fistula which may result with me ending up with a (temporary they say) colon bag thingy – aaargh. But it seems there’s nothing for it. I shall be going under the knife around 6pm.

Terrified? You betcha. Watch my Twitter (not Facebook) feed for updates.
