    Apart from being really strange that has got to be the best department we have been in,virtually no patients,lovely staff and Dr Tunbridge was fantastic.
    Her thinking is that the consultants have missed something which she thinks is Streptococcus Milleri which Joel tested positive for in November and is the primary cause of Brain Abscess.
    She thinks Joel may still have some in his right side which is why he is constantly unwell.
    They’re going to do some different scans on Joel to work out if that’s it then he will be admitted and treated with specific intravenous antibiotics to hopefully get rid of it.
    She’s not sure and if that’s not it,it will need to be cut out,which we could do with out.
    Dr Tunbridge will speak to Prof Ray who we see a week tomorrow,they will come up with the right scan and we will go from that.
    We are looking at May for him to be admitted but these things are usually delayed.
    Thanks

    Running. Have done a couple of 10ks so far this year and looking to do a half marathon later on.

    I’ve started since January, after a year of ill health. 
    I got given a book by the army about 5 years ago that has 3x 12 week regimes in it. I’m in week 11 of the first regime so far. It’s a mix of high intensity circuits, steady state long runs, and sprint training 4 times a week. Ultimately the target is to pass an army personal fitness assessment. 40 press ups in 2 mins, 60 sit ups in 2 mins, a mile and a half in 10.5 mins. 
    I’ve never passed the PFA cos of the run. I can smash out the rest. 
    This has definitely improved me, the final test is scheduled for a PFA next Tuesday. But when I started I was miles off, 15 mins for a mile and a half, and I was absolutely blowing. 
    Yeasterday I did 4.5 miles in 45 mins (same pace, but 3 times as far). 
    ‘I really regret doing that workout, said nobody ever.’ I like that quote, and it’s totally true. It can sometimes take a lot to get out there, and when you’re out there you feel like you’re going to die and want to stop, but when you’re done, you feel really good, and pleased with yourself. 
    Coincidentally, at the same time my village started a running club, that I get involved with when it syncs with my regime. 
    Theyre all doing the couch to 5k from the NHS, and it’s had some great results there. 
    It might not make you an adonis overnight, but it’s a good way to get into regular cardio and break you in easy. 
    Weve all now entered the local 5k in May, which will be the first time I’ve ever done any kind of organised run / race. I’m quite excited.

    Free weights are immense. So much better than any machine at a gym.
    Chest and triceps Monday, back and biceps Wednesday, legs and shoulders Friday.
    Maximum of an hour each session. Eat cleanish. Need to get about 150g of protein in on lifting days. 100g on the other days. 8 hours sleep a night, or 8 hours on lifting days if you can.
    Fish is good. Tuna is brilliant. Odd protein drink to help with getting protein in, also helps skip the odd meal. 
    The more muscle you have, the quicker you burn fat. When youve worked up the weight a bit, you'll notice you can eat quite a lot of poo without gaining weight.
    I'm 5'9, 14 stone 4lbs. Lift 155kg bench, 225kg deadlift, 175kg squat. 
    And i eat ian incredible amount of poo without gaining weight. Talking 4 packets of crisps everyday. At least 2 chocolate bars etc.
    Also, if you get a barbell, you can do proper deadlifts. Immense for muscle building, but also makes your heart go into very high bpms. Meaning it is generally better than going for a run. Stimulates nearly every muscle in your body too.
    I do everything at home. No machine. Just a bench, free weights, barbell and a squat rack. Probably cost me 200 quid in total. Never been to a gym unless on holiday. 
    Best decision of your life when you get in the routine.
