Hi Everyone, hope you all had a happy and peaceful Christmas and didn't forget to take your medication! I had my fifth visit last week and I did the usual things, spirometry, vital signs and 6 minute walk, which was a bit down on my previous attempt but the Research Nurse was generally satisfied with me. I also saw the Doctor and she recommended that I have a blood test to check my immunity as I was so poorly when I had a temperature of 38 degrees 6 weeks ago. She also asked a Physio to see me to check on my use of my acapella. She suggested that I use it in the afternoon when I produce most sputum rather than the morning when I produced hardly anything, and to do the night time use lying on my side. I've not tried this yet, too much of a faff. The Research Nurse rang me to say my immunity was O.K. I'm off the trial drug again this month and start again on Visit 6. The Research Nurse is going to talk to the Monitor of the trial as it is not clear in all the blurb that it is one month on one month off. That's all for now. Hope 2015 brings you health and happiness and let's all keep in touch eh! HAPPY NEW YEAR TO YOU ALL, and thanks for your friendship. Take care. Love Lizzy x
