I’ve been trying hard to remember the order in which everything happened during that first year of Ellie’s illness. So much went on that it’s all a bit of a blur to be honest. Well, imagine the joy when I looked through the filing cabinet to find two files (‘Ellie Medical’ & ‘Ellie Food’) crammed full of paperwork including a typed up food diary and ‘Sequence of Events’ for the first year! Yay!
I’d genuinely forgotten all of the symptoms and pain Ellie had gone through and I’m so pleased that I documented it all. I’d done this so I could confidently talk through what was happening with any consultants we saw. You know what it’s like – you’re face to face with the Doc and everything goes out of your head… until you’re on your way home!
So, here I attach a photo of the first ‘Sequence of Events’ and the food diary. I hope you can read it!
Until next time… love & hugs ❤
