Only just avoided Costa last night

I had to phoned for the out of hours' doctor last night because I was suffering yet again with my asthma I phoned at 23:45 and by 00:00 they were with me at my home, I had to have 3 back to back nebs plus oxygen and the doctor that came to me was really kind and understanding and stayed with me to make sure that I was OK until 04:00. The doctor did mention to me that I only just managed to keep myself out of hospital and should my symptoms re-occur over the few hours and certainly this weekend then I would have to be admitted into hospital. So fingers crossed that I can stay at home

He was very concerned because my oxygen sats dropped to 82 then eventually to 80 by the time he did leave me my oxygen sats had gone up to 92 and he was satisfied that I should be OK.

Wow your doc sounds great. Similar to snowy's post in medical, good to see some people go that extra bit in looking after you. They could've just called an ambulance and told you to go in. Hope you do ok and stay out

I was very surprised because I thought he would phone for an ambulance, glad he did not though much better to stay at home and rest isn't it.
