Firstly may I apologize to Toci and KOTC for not answering their messages.
Since the 19th November I was taken to my local hospital by ambulance and I have just came home tonight.
I did have a bad bout of pneumonia ,the first 7 days on i.v drip of antibodies did not work, the second week was a far stronger antibodies.
The first night the Nurse Practitioner had 3 stabs to get the i.v. in followed by another 2 before she went off shift. She unfortunately failed, however the good news is I now have a Picc Lines fitted and it works well. It will be tested tomorrow as I have to go and get my antibodies,
My ward had 6 beds and during my stay there were 3 deaths just in my room and more along the ward. It is sad however it it the type of ward that these things happen. I was the youngest at 62 and the oldest was 93.
I cannot praise the nursing staff and Consultants enough. Thank you ward 19.
At the moment I am pretty weak still and I think that I will take an extended Christmas break to build my energy up.
I will continue to poke my nose in every now and again.
Love, hugs and best wishes to all my friends.
