Thanks Poppie and UB. Yes, it would be nice if we could all have a HW meet-up - I'd like that :p
@UB - My stomach has not been too bad, surprisingly. The last Entyvio infusion seemed to help. In fact I even thought of asking my hospital not to bother with Stelara. But I'm leaving it, as I'm really not sure what's going to happen in the future: not just with my Crohn's and uveitis, but the country itself. We are being governed by utter, utter fools and incompetents, and I'm not exaggerating that even slightly. I was absolutely gobsmacked by that gurning, smirking, arrogant fool, David Davis,
openly lying in parliament today. And getting away with it, because there is literally nothing a Tory minister can do anymore to get himself sacked.
Anyway, to cut a long story short, it's bad scenes at the moment. Very very bad scenes. Brexit has gone beyond a farce and a joke into something surreal and unbelievable, it's that bad. Anyway, long story even shorter, I'm getting my expensive meds while I still can
. That said, I've not had any news about
a start date yet.
