Bless you all thank-you for caring about me.

So have seen the doc explained etc to her.My lungs have very little air entry at the moment it would seem especially my right lung,but she cant here any crackles particularly so thats good she questioned and thought pneumothorax because of my right lung not sounding good at all with the little air entry and said a trip to hospital might be in order!But we've come to an agreement cos I havnt gone down hill daily Im the same as I was when this started.Im to start steroids which should help with the inflammation take pain relief start abs if necessary and watch myself closely ,and fly to hospital if anything gets worse.Bp was high but that could be cos she was scaring me.

Please dont think Im ignoring any advice im really not but am terrified of going into my hospital because it is riddled with all sorts of nasty infections and recommends you not to go there when you ring because they are rife with mrsa etc etc.If my immune system is low I will be more likely to catch something! Having said that I know my body and if anything gets worse I will be up there lively dont worry about that.My doctor told be to stop the bending over and to just rest up.

So I think a tray of tasty morsels will be made up and I shall be watching tele all cosy snug in bed,armed with meds beside me.

Again thank-you for your kind replies.Happy days my friends have a great weekend the weather my way is meant to reach the dizzy heights of 15 whoohoo peeps catch those rays. :)

Dont forget a smile a day helps us work rest and play aswell as those mars bars. :p

Thank you for letting the community know how you got on at the doctors. I've kept looking in to see if you posted :) Well, now you know what's wrong, and what to do to get better, go put your feet up and have a snack fest - and do remember to rest, even if Bailey thinks otherwise :) Inny x

Evening Jane - I am so pleased you have seen the doctor. I agree with you about knowing your own body. My husband is the same about hospitals so I can understand your fears. Trust your own judgement but please don't be too brave! And my husband also has high blood pressure at docs. Take good care and look after yourself love TAD xx

Hi Jane things are still very stressful we had a hard week last week hoping this week will be better.

Good choice you made there hun. You've got your meds and your description of sitting in the garden with all your goodies and your beloved Bailey and family around sounds ideal to me. No cross contamination - just fresh air. Lovely.

Hope you feel better soon.
