Lovely hospital visit/stay

Tuesday, 22 April 2014

Hello my lovely's! 

I know I only wrote a post on Sunday but I thought i would let you all know that i have been admitted to my local hospital because on Sunday night at 3am I had a temperature of 37.7, we left it because it wasn't as high as normal, but yesterday, my mum went to work and I was fine for half the day and then around 2ish I didn't feel well at all and I didn't think to check my temperature! but when my mum got home at 5 she looked at me and said 'Kate check your temp' so I did and it was 38.1!! :( rang my CF nurse and she said I needed to come to the hospital to be checked! When I got here I had bloods done and had a cannula put in just incase I needed IV antibiotics, the doctors spoke to great ormand street and they said I needed them! so they put me on Tazocin, colistin and they tried me on cipro IV as well but that was soooo painful going through the vain! so I'm on that oral now! :) I was going to be in only until tomorrow but I've still been having temperatures :( and my CRP is 31 so high but not to high but it shows that there is some sort of infection! also my neutrophils are even lower than last Thursday!! they are now 0.7 they was 0.12! so I'm not allowed to go and see Mcbusted on Thursday :( I'm so gutted because I was really looking forward to seeing them. And Ella!! :( but my health is more important! I really don't feel well at the minute, I'm hoping I'm better for next week so I can go back to school! I need to revise! I'm doing some in hospital though!

Hopefully I will be out of hospital soon and back to my normal self! :)

Happy Easter!

Sunday, 20 April 2014


Happy Easter everyone! i hope you all had a good day and got all the chocolate in the world! i had a couple of easter eggs! i got an eton mess one from my dad! :P and my mum got me these 2 minions things with creme eggs inside! i don't really eat much chocolate so i didn't want many eggs! but i had a good day, my sister and nephew came around for a bit, also i saw my dad and step brother, when i gave him his easter egg, (it was a one direction one as he loves them haha) he said "oh thanks, I've had 2 one directions eggs already but its alright because poppy likes one direction now" poppy is my 10 week old baby sister! I'm sure she sits there dancing to one direction all the time haha! oh and i hope you all had a lovely roast!

I've had to stay in again as my neutrophils are low!! but I'm having bloods again tuesday and hopefully they are back up because i go back to school on wednesday and then go to see Mcbusted on thursday so i only go back to school for one day and miss thursday and friday! since having to stay in, i saw that the first Harry Potter was on telly and i had nothing to do so thought, why not watch it? because i have never seen the Harry Potter films before, but i got really into it and then decided i needed to watch the rest of them, so i borrowed them of a friend and since yesterday i haven't stopped watching them! I'm on the 6th one now, so tomorrow i will be watching the 7th! :) today got to enjoy easter all healthy thanks to my donor! 

so do a good thing this easter and sign up to be an organ donor! just click... here!

Hectic times

Saturday, 12 April 2014


the 4th of april was the last day of term and i had my leavers assembly, my tutor made a slideshow about us and it was really cute! she put me, amber, amelia and kirstie down as her organisers and all of our tutor got student of the term, for being part of awesome tutor group! :P i really am going to miss Mrs Mitchell! and its going to be weird not going to school again! it feels like I've only just got back into it and now i have to leave again but this time it will be forever! 

its only been a week into the holidays, I've been shopping, I've been buying clothes again haha! also I've been going into boots and getting pictures printed of for peoples leavers books and sorting my book out! I'm trying to get everyone to write in it soon as when we go back to school we only have 17 days left and then we leave!! and I've also been revising, having mcdonalds and yesterday i started work, its only a job to work in the holidays, its cleaning cottages, me Tiegan(my childhood best friend) and her mum and friend cleaned 5 cottages!! i was knackered by the end so went home to have a nap haha!! but nothing stopped me from walking to mcdonalds with mum last night ;) I'm working again on monday :) I've applied for a job in Pizza Hut and New Look told me to take in a CV as they take on school leavers :) my first exam is only 4 weeks and 3 days away!! ahhhhhh. 

for the rest of the holidays I'm mostly going to revise and maybe work! 
but in 12 days i go to see Mcbusted with ella, i have mentioned ella before, i met her through having my transplant, ella has had a heart transplant and because she has a spare ticket to see Mcbusted she said i could go! my dad is driving me up there and we will stay in a travelodge over night :) and also looking forward to seeing ella again :)

ohh yeah.. i was in the north devon gazette on the 2nd of april! and then i was in the north devon journal on the thursday just gone!
i only have the link to the journal so here it is..

proud of it haha!!

Fundoplication Clinic

Tuesday, 1 April 2014


Today i was a GOSH for an appointment to see Dr Curry about the Fundoplication surgery, but we didn't see Dr Curry, we saw his registrar, and she said because i have a lot of reflux i need to have the surgery, so I'm going onto the waiting list but i will have it after my exams, so at least i can get my exams out the way first, i will have to stay in hospital for 3-4 days and i have to eat sloppy foods for 6 weeks after the operation, it is key whole surgery, well they try that first and if it doesn't work then they will have to cut me! I'm not too worried about this because I've had many operations before! :) 

this is a picture of what they are going to do .

Also yesterday i had to get my lung function checked as my machine at home was reading low! but its okay my lung function is still 90%! :) and last night we went to m&m world, it was so good i loved it, but it was so busy! i bought some m&m's, a red m&m teddy thing and a blanket haha! 

I'm going back to school tomorrow as my neutrophils are back up :) so i get to go to my leavers assembly on friday!!! :D 

m&m world! :)

speak soon!
