COVID lock down

Well it is over a year later and we are in another COVID lockdown.

This year I feel less anxious because I am still able to attend my lifeskills programme as it is an essential service. I can also still do respite. Being able to still do some of my normal stuff helps me.

The new strand out is very scary as it is spread more easily but I get the second vaccine in over a week.

Goldcoast holiday weekend

On the June long weekend I went to the golcoast to escape the cold weather.

On the Saturday I went to Seaworld. It was fun it has seals dolphins rides and more. I went on the vortex wich spins you upside down forward and backward. The sensation felt like i was going to fall tight out even though I was strapped in the seat. I also was very shakey and had a sore tummy.

Sunday I went to movie world. It was fun i went on a ride where you go up and down. This was better than the vortex.

Monday I went on a train to Brisbane and explored around the river. It was lovely there. I also caught the light rail into surfers paradise and wandered around.

Tuesday I came home. I had a lovely time I love to get away sometimes and see different places. COVID is still around but it is good to be able to get away when we can. I believe there will always be outbreaks but if we are are careful hopefully things will stay under control.

On line charge simposium

This year instead of the normal conference in the USA the CHARGE foundation are going online.

With COVID and travel restrictions in many countries they felt it was easier and safer to do it online.

I like this option because it gives me a chance to see everyone and catch up on latest information with out having to travel with all the COVID things in is going to be fun the time difference will be hard but I am looking forward to it.

Tube change

Last week i had my gj tube changed. The gj tube is a two in one tube where one section goes into the stomach and the other goes in to the jejunum small bowel.

I need this tube because my gut doesn’t function properly. The tube is done under anaesthetic in the X-ray department with imaging.

This time I went in at 7am and was out by 1pm. It went very good and I didn’t even need to stay over night. Now it will stay in for another year.
