It is a bittersweet day . . . we heard late last night that a good friend died last night. Pat had been ill with cancer for some time, although I remember him as a runner. He was a little younger than Bob, with two grown up sons. Among the old group of friends, everyone is really miserable and there are a lot of tears being shed.

On the other hand, it is Lucy's 20th Birthday Today. Probably the best darn feline around of any age. Happy Birthday Lucy!

I'm still fed up with my gut, which is getting worse, and really stopping me from getting out of the house at the moment. I didn't have chocolate or ice cream or anything yesterday. Slept in until very late, had heavy night sweats, and was really groggy when I got up. I arranged to meet Bob in Civic at lunchtime for LUNCH ~ this was not on the plan, but I was so fed up, being unable to run the BBQ Stakes that I felt like food for the first time in five weeks. Maybe not the wisest idea before Sunday, and with my gut getting worse. But good for the soul anyway.

The fatigue continued and I came home, crashed in bed and slept for a few hours. Lucy was pleased to have me home and spend extra time in asleep! Lying down in bed was few hours was special birthday treat.

Tomorrow I have an appointment to see my Dietitian again, my GP is concerned about the long term nutritional use of FortiJuice. Maybe the operation is even higher on the cards.

    I hope it can improve, sounds nasty. And I'm sorry about today.

    On a brighter note, GO LUCY! She deserves that Go Girl thing more than anyone. :)
