I just thought I would pop in and update here on the blog for you all to let you know how my tests went at the doctors. No IBS or Coeliac disease, something totally unexpected and not very nice at all. The doctor said that the first two infections I had were misdiagnosed (luckily I went to see my doctor finally) by the other doctor. I actually have SALMONELLA food poisoning and apparently I am very lucky that I didnt die from it since I had it so bad. I must be a tough cookie after all. It is a bit scary and frightening though when the doctor tells you that you could have nearly died (I did have a little cry in the car afterwards) so it makes me rethink things now. He said I could have most likely caught it from take away food and since I do sometimes just pop into the shop and buy a little lunch time snack sometimes I know from now on no more take away at all. I never want to experience that pain again. Apart from the fatigue feeling and sometimes feeling faint, and the tummy spasms I should hopefully start to feel better in about 6 - 8 weeks. After you have this it can take a long time to remove everything from your system. I am just so thankful though that my kids didnt get it. I just have to wait for the little fronds in my bowel to grow back (doctors description) as they have all been snapped off from all the sickness so apparently my food just goes straight through instead of being carefully delivered to my insides causing the tummy spasms. Now after all the horribleness to tell you about it all I do have some wonderful news from last week.
My SIL is having twin BOYS and she actually sent us some pics of their 4D ultrasound. I have already started them a little hoodie jacket and something else too which I hope to finish off tomorrow so I can show you all. We are so super excited here about them arriving apart from Isabelle who thinks its unfair that there are going to be more boy cousins. She and her cousin Laura are the only 2 girls and then there will be 6 boys too. I did tell her that Laura and her would be special then because they are the only girls but she didnt seem to buy it. Oh well more babies are always fantastic and great to spoil even if they will be living in another State. I hope you all have a lovely healthy happy week!!!!
