I have mentioned that I have been feeling low for a while. I had some blood tests a few weeks ago and it showed that my Ferritin levels are continuing to rise. I was then given a blood test for Haemochromatosis. It turns out that I have just the one gene so a note to Cro that it may be an idea to get checked if you haven't already been. There is a possibility that you could have one or two of the genes and, even with just one it could be passed on to the younger Cro's (or is that Magnon's)
Not being of a medical bent I had not even heard of this but it appears that early diagnosis is vital. You can check it at Haemochomatosis. (Whoops I left an r out but it should still work)
I, meanwhile, am still unsure why I have high ferritin levels and my G.P. is arranging for me to have further blood tests in a couple of months and I will have an ultrasound shortly. I don't feel ill just exhausted - it is an effort to get out of bed in the morning and by lunchtime I have a habit of falling asleep once again.
Still, I visited my lovely hubby today and he seemed fine although he told me he has just been elected Mayor of Whangarei and he is worried about how he is going to cope. He later told me that he used to have a wonderful wife. When I told him that I am his wife he got upset and said that I had left him. I then visited my friend, Isabel, and we had a coffee and chat before I came home for lunch (and fell asleep).
Still, spring is definitely in the air and I have been managing to do a little weeding each day.
Every day there seems to be something new . The colour of the new spring growth on the tree (the name of which eludes me at present) is just amazing.
