Hi, after my successful Visit 3 for my drug trial, I came home and realised I had caught my daughter, husband, granddaughters, cold! Of course it went straight to my chest so I started my reserve antibiotics. Next day I rang Papworth and they said come in next day so they could see what is going on. I went yesterday in that glorious sunshine, I had a temperature of 38 degrees (should be 36.4) so I had numerous bloods taken. The Doctor rang me in the evening to say that the blood tests showed far more infection than they thought. I am to keep monitoring my temperature and if it doesn't go down I am to go to Papworth (90 mile round trip) for more blood tests. They will ring me Monday to decide what further treatment I require, probably iv's! Thankfully today my temperature is down but I still feel a bit limp so I'll keep on taking the tablets and hopefully I'll be O.K. I suppose the good news is that it won't affect the drug trial, I can still carry on with it. Take care everyone and enjoy the sunshine while it lasts. Lizzy xx
