I've not had much time to look in on the Forum for the past couple of weeks, although I've tried to keep up to date as far as I can.
Unfortunately, I DO have time to look in today as I should be going to Pulmonary Rehab this afternoon but am stricken with what is probably just a cold - but I don't feel too good with it and definitely don't have the breath or the inclination to do the excercises today.
The RESP nurse in charge of PR has kindly phoned, following up my message about missing the group today, and she has promised to take my sputum sample back to the hospital with her if my husband can drop it off at the hall. She said she's on duty over the weekend so will follow it up too, and give me a call. Very kind, I thought and very much appreciated.
I'm feeling a bit frustrated as have been feeling SO good since I had my last antibiotics in May. But we all know a flare up is just around the corner, don't we? As I said, this is probably just a cold, or even due to hay fever which I get at this time of the year. LFT was negative this morning and I don't have a temp, but I feel really queasy and my 02 has dropped. Strangely, my PF was fine this morning. Usually that drops dramatically when I've got any kind of infection.
I'm probably just being a wimp, but am having an easy day anyway.
On another subject, has anyone tried out the heated throws? My friend said she's got one and it's brilliant as she snuggles up in that instead of putting her heating on. I've seen that you can put them on the bed as an electric over blanket too.
