01.04.2002Monday 1 April to Monday 15 April (15 days)

The probability of something having occured in this time-period is quite high.

16.04.2002Tuesday 16 April

A great deal of absolutely nothing has happened. It’s been a wet few weeks. Not the torrential downpours of the wet season, but wet and sodden nonetheless. The camera battery died, and being a Sony, required a special battery; so I now have a new battery. It’s twice the capacity of the old one, which is handy. I shall now go collapse in an appropriate spot. Collapsing at the keyboard is embarrassing. I might consider sleep.

17.04.2002Wednesday 17 April to Friday 26 April (10 days)

Life continued. Bacteria divided, mosquitoes bit, and moths flew into the light bulbs.

27.04.2002Saturday 27 April – Pneumothorax

Suffered a re-occurance of a spontaneous pneumothorax. I may have to spend some time in hospital ’inflating’.
  I’ll let you know.

28.04.2002Sunday 28 April – X-Ray

After 8 litres per minute of Oxygen for 2 days, no positive change was noted so am now back home – attempting to recover and will have another X-Ray soon to check progress. Pain is under control, but sleeping isn’t pleasant – lying down isn’t comfortable. The good news is that mortality rates are less than 5% and this is a small ~5% collapse. The bad news is that it hurts, it re-occurs, it demands total rest, and it scares me that I might roll over and pop my lung when I’m sleeping. Anyway... off to bed.

29.04.2002Monday 29 April

I did nothing. Rested totally. Moved very little. Sat in my chair here and either read, or typed, or occasionally (for variety) went to sleep.

30.04.2002Tuesday 30 April

See above.
