I really did enjoy that book! It was pitched at just the right level for me. And he does also interweave it with personal experiences and observations in a very appealing and skilful way. Not too academic, not too populist. The porridge was juuust right.

In other news: I sprained my right foot on Saturday night. It's coming good quite quickly though. I put a compression bandage on as soon as I realised it wasn't just a twist, fastidiously kept it elevated yesterday and overnight and in a slightly more half-arsed way today. I'm now down to one crutch, but moving around in such a careful, restrained way is kind of tiring in itself, so I'm not moving much.

It all happenned because on Saturday evening at dinnertime I was actually feeling well enough to risk eating out - so we did. And then I miscalculated the depth of a step in the restaurant and that was it. Fortunately this happenned just as we were leaving, so dinner out was not compromised in any way. :-)


I go in for my second infusion for the clinical trial this Wednesday, and at the moment I am reasonably confident that I can comply with all the requirements of this trial and therefore be eligible to participate in the long-term, open-label trial which is the one that has the potential to really make a difference to my life.


My heart-rate monitor has arrived, more on that soon. But I did reach ~120BPM while sitting upright in a restaurant. No wonder I'm buggered all the time.

Well, I'm glad you got to enjoy dinner *before* injuring yourself.

120 BPM, at rest? Youch!

Wow, 120bpm- was before you knew you were going sprain your ankle? That would wear anyone out. Hope you can get to the bottom of it. Good luck with the infusion and hope your ankle feels better soon.
