This is my personal blog, not a venue for saleable images. In fact, because it's here that I share things that are important to me with the members of the moblog community, photo quality's not my priority. Events, occasions, achievements, thoughts, trips and experiments - you'll find them all here. Contact me for the development version of my photo portfolio, for a selection of saleable images or visit my dance photography blog or my website for cuttings. And remember that all photos remain my copyright unless I've specifically said otherwise.

begin with a bath

I got some of the results from the last batch of tests. While we're no closer to confirming what I have (for now they're calling it PUO) it appears that all the really bad stuff has finally been eliminated.

hahaha multiple wet the 2nd shot :-)
glad to hear that really bad stuff has been eliminated, but it is a shame that you still have no idea....
what does puo mean?

OCD Sprocket says:

I'm guessing "puo" stands for something all the lines of "I'm sorry but my dog ate my diagnosis"

hey a little wee you ...

... but that is good news, mostly.

Good news about negative results :)
Love the series ..... do you share your bathroom with little green men? (shots 3 and 4)

Here's another vote for my dog ate my diagnosis.

Thanks for zooming in on those reflections. Saves us all the trouble. ;)

Cool. Next time rubber ducky?

*waves and thank you

PUO basically means you get high temperature fevers (and in my case low temperature shivers as well) regularly and they don't know what it is after weeks and weeks and weeks

Sprocket - indeed, although I'm still waiting for the Dengue results

taniwha - I think so!

EJ - lots!

Maggie - they are some of the luxurious acquisitions from top hotels, the contents of one of which is in the bath with me :)

Laszlo - that is correct, although I should probably add that I had to ask for an AIDS test as, once the doctors heard of my lifestyle they decided that it was extremely unlikely (turns out they were right, but I wanted to eliminate it)

rumanchu - sorry, the cats ate the ducks

(And I'm pleased some horrible stuff has been eliminated... fingers crossed and all that)

Dhamaka says:

Minkey - yes....
Sean - not a cheerful video, and if what they say about symptoms and blood count stuff in it is true, it's not..
