Yes, I'm still in the land of the living, although recent events almost had me doubting that fact.
Whilst I was having computer hassles, it seems my human system was also not performing to its full capacity. Things came to a head after two weeks of vomiting and diarrhoea, resulting in me being admitted to hospital and put onto a drip. For someone who has always taken good health for granted, it came as quite a shock to find myself in such a poor state. I got home after a week and was glad of the chance to catch up on some sleep - how does anyone ever get any rest in hospital?!
I'm working at getting my energy level back up, I hate feeling so feeble, dog walks are gradually getting longer and hopefully it won't be too long before I'm back to normal. I am very lucky to have kind friends and family who helped out by looking after some of the dogs for me, thanks to all of you.
Weight loss was quite dramatic, I lost 10kg (22lbs) in 10 days but, for those of you interested in dropping a couple of dress sizes, I wouldn't recommend this method!
