Today was the day of my appointment with my colitis consultant; I was to have seen Mr S. late in 2010 had not circumstances conspired.
As usual, I was early for my appointment (lack of sleep can be beneficial) and I sat for a while trying not to doze off. Finally, Mr. S called me in; we discussed my progress for a few minutes; decided to cut back on the treatment plan; and then … a suprise. I don’t have to see Mr. S again for another year. Wow! This means I have indeed made progress and I am managing better with the condition, so I no longer have to report regularly and no further exploratories are required.
Today may have been wet, cold, damp and my foot may still have been aching, but very little could take the smile from my face. Indeed! This aspect of my life is currently under control, and I can move on.
