    I woke up this morning was thinking of you. I am so glad that you took the steps you took so you could get better. I know things are tough right now but you are on the the way to answers which means that you are one step better to going home (both homes. Your physical home and your cyber home). Love ya my friend.

    HEY GUYS .. thanks so much for all the notes, you really know how to lift me up. I have been in hospital for 12 days so far, since last Tuesday August 9. Don't be too excited though, I only escaped from hospital for a few hours, and then they are going to lock me up again - for how long ??????

    I have had so many tests, and I don't know where to begin.

    Weight loss: When I got to hospital they said that i was malnourished and put me on ensure plus. I managed to put on just over one and a half kg in a week. Then I was put on sustagen, and I maitained that weight. However, I have now started to loose weight again. My nausea is a bit better, but I still feel sick most of the time. Probably one of the problems is that I try to eat everythng because I am so scared of loosing more weight. The dietition said that I can eat less if I want because she doesn't want me to feel any worse than what I am feeling. She is coming to see me again on Monday.

    Muscles: The physio comes in every couple of days and she has put me on crutches. She doesn't want me to do any exercises because of the muscle fatigue I experience. I had a electrical muscle conduction test - OUCH!!!!!!!!!!!! My arm had some weird electrical stuff going on, and the nurologist said he suspects that is the beginning of a neuomusclular disease. My other specialist and the neurologist is keeping a close eye on me. They look at me, with the look and say, there really isn't much we can do, except to support me. So, if they are right, that doesn't seem very good in the long run for me. I am having a muscle biopsy sometime next week. The surgeon is seeing me on Monday or Tuesday.

    Brain: Well those of you who were wondering, apparently I have a brain after all, I have a MRI that proves it. There were some stuff on the MRI, but they said it was expected for my age. I asked the intern what that means, but she didn't really explain in to well to me. I think it just means I am getting old. Besides that, my family, friends and mum are still concerned because I say weird stuff, and I forget things easily, and forget people's names and names of things. This came on suddenly 3 or 4 weeks ago. Before then I was having some difficulty concentrating and thinking for a few weeks before my health started spiralling out of control, hence the hospitalisation. I have no idea what is happening, hopefully it is only temorary, I cannot imagine the rest of my life with these brain issues worsening. I thoght I was getting a bit better, but I am told - no I am not. Oh well, perhaps if no one tells me what I say, then I won't know, and what I don't know, won't bother me.

    PET SCAN: I had one yesterday, I won't know the results until Tuesday, or whenever the doctors tell me. They are still convinced I have some sort of cancer. If I have, then it will be battle stations, HEY Rob, can I borrow some of your guns, I may have a big fight to fight.

    The good thing about being sick and in hospital, I am reading HEAPS of novels. And being waited on hand and foot. It is nice to get out into the fresh air every now and then thought. I am in a good hospital, I have good medical insurance, but it is still costing me a fotune though. My specialists are the best in their field apparently. So I am well looked after. I don't know when I will have leave again, probably for a few hours next weekend. So I will check in again then.
