Walking through uni with such massive heels is not easy. But actually being able to touch the floor while sitting in my lecture made it all worth it. Plus my friend said I look stylish. #ootd #wiwt #heels #alternativecurves #alternativechick #shorthair #shavedhead #greenhair #bluelips #diyhair #jedi #starwars #trustmeimajedi #velvet
Even though it's annoying having cuts and scrapes on my hands, elbows and knees, I enjoy the reminder of what I achieved to get them. Tonight was my third time climbing at Kangaroo Point with the UQ Mountain Club and although I only climbed one route, I'm astonished and proud that I made it up. I pushed myself and achieved a climb I was convinced was not going to happen. #climbing #rockclimbing #kp #kangaroopoint #brisbane #uqmc #soproud #sobrave #achievement #achieving @uqmc #unilife #uqlife
We had a big weekend. Calum started feeling sore at 6pm on Thursday 03/08/17. He came home early from work because of it. I got home past 10pm and he was lying in bed looking terrible with a bad pain in his abdomen. @leahahchay got home around 11pm and after asking questions and palpating his tummy, said she thought he might have appendicitis and we should go to the emergency department. So we bundled him into the car and got to ED at 11:40pm. Then came hours of waiting, tests, cannulation, anxiety, vomiting and seeing lots of different nurses and doctors, all of whom treated us very well. He had to get a CT scan after his blood test showed an elevated white blood count but his urine test was normal. Around 4:00am the nurse came in to let us know that he had appendicitis. At 9:30am they moved him to the 23 hour ward. They hoped that he would get into surgery that day (Friday). One of the nurses kindly fetched me a recliner so that I didn't have to try to nap on the floor. We spent the day waiting. Calum wasn't in pain due to all the morphine but he was very sick and unhappy. Our unhappiness increased when I asked how I'd get back into the ward at night if I left to get food and they told us that visiting hours were 8am-8pm so I couldn't stay. I went home at 8pm, with both of us crying because we needed me to stay with him. I was back at 7:30am the next morning (Saturday), but before I could even find a park Calum was texting me to say that they were taking him into surgery and I wouldn't get to see him first. I sat on the floor in admissions and listened to one of the lectures that I'd missed the day before. Then I went up to the Short Stay Surgical Unit and waited for them to bring him in. He was groggy but the surgery had been perfect and he was sitting at a very low pain level. He spent Saturday pushing himself to recover. Drink a little water, eat a little food, go for little walks. I studied a little more and we talked with his family, who were cooking us food to eat the rest of the week when he could come home. I had to leave at 8pm again. At 10am on Sunday morning, he was discharged and able to come home. Since then, his recovery has been steady.
Rock climbing at Kangaroo Point with the UQ Mountain Club for the first time tonight, then I caught the ferry across the river to get home.
