Phew, that was close!

Less than 3 weeks since I escaped from hospital (having spent more time there than home since the summer) Ive got a really horrible cold that has inevitably gone to my chest. Having been lectured often enough about leaving it too late to go in, I emailed my cons this morning to tell her I was coming up to A+E but fully intended being sent home again! There was no talk of me being allowed home, the A+E dr was trying to arrange for me to go straight to resp ward not admissions as they know me so well etc.....

As per my action plan the resp team were alerted that I was there and I was told the registrar would see me when he finished in clinic. He didn' own lovely cons came instead :-) I earned brownie points for going in so early and because Id been sensible and was poorly but more from a grotty cold than really bad asthma, and I live so close to the hospital, she let me come home - yay!! Any of the others would def have admitted me, Im so relieved. Back on 40mg pred tho, boooo :-(
