Good Morning to you all! Well it has been a long three weeks!! We had a great run up to Christmas, a great Christmas do, a fab Christmas eve, lovely Christmas day, family boxing day - then we were hit by the lurgy. (Probably serves me right I was pretty smug that I had kept us bug free!!) . It started with a bit of a sore throat, a bit of a headache, and then by the third day we were both bed ridden. NOW I know that flu is!!!! I cannot remember from New Years Eve for the next week - I had to drag myself out of bed to do the school run for the first week but think that's why I have taken longer to recover!
Our doctor has been so good. At the first sign of illness I started my husband on the abs and steroids. One week later he really hadn't improved - rang doctors agreed to start second course of abs. Went to pharmacy for prescription to find they had run out of antibiotics !!! Second pharmacy had the antibiotics but had run out of night nurse!! Think there must be an epidemic!!!! Last Monday I was really concerned my husband didn't seem to be improving - thank the gods for oxygen and the nebuliser. I am sure they kept him out of hospital. His breathing was so bad that at points he had to use the oxygen just to get to the toilet (ten yards along the hall if that). Nine days in the bedroom - oh I was stir crazy never mind him! Rang the doctors and she was out to see him by lunchtime - she said she knew my husband must be very ill as I never ring for visits! She agreed that were doing all the right things and his chest wasn't bad at all (for him!) - so we had to wait the flu out!
All back to normal now - first day back at work!! YIKES. So I say thank God for the NHS and the fantastic staff!
Wishing you all the happiest 2015 in the best of health xxx
