As you know I have been struggling with a chest infection and the associated asthma flare up for the last few weeks. I went back to my GP yesterday and he admitted me as he didn't know what else to do.
So I spent the last 24 hrs being prodded, poked and stabbed by various people and was then sent home with more antibiotics, as all the tests came back ok and my obs were not too shabby.
The good news is I got the written confirmation that I can try Xolair - yay. The worst bit about being in as always was the evil blood gases. It took the doctor nearly half an hour to find my arteries in my wrists, I am black and blue and so sore. There must be some less painful way to do this or they need to figure it out. I'm not a wuss, I have tattoos and piercings but I find this hideous.
Anyway, I am planning on having a complete weekend off and getting some rest so that I can hopefully kick this infection.
