Wednesday's diary on a Thursday 0.6

It thinks I don’t know what it’s up to, but I do. My UC is playing silly buggers, you see; it always behaves itself on Wednesdays, because it knows whatever it gets up to will be published here on Thursdays. So on Wednesdays my UC is as good as gold, all doe-eyed innocence and butter wouldn’t melt harmlessness. But the moment the spotlight is off it, the angelic veneer is gone and it’s business as usual. If this was called Monday’s diary on a Tuesday it’d tell a very different story. So here it is, Wednesday’s (not a true reflection of how things really are) diary on a Thursday.
Wednesday 22nd August:
6.30am Loose, blood
8.05am Loose, gassy
1.45pm Loose, light blood
4.00pm Stool

6 x Mesalazine 400mg
4 x Prednisolone 5mg
1 x Asacol Mesalazine foam enema
3 x Ferrous Sulphate 200mg
2 x Calcium Carb 1.25g

Dropped to 4 Prednisolone. Less crampy stomach pains. Feel like things are improving very, very, very slowly.
