I haven't been here for a while, sorry. I was admitted to hospital on the 22nd of January. I was very unwell. Initially iv antibiotics seemed to be helping but then things went pear shaped and I developed an itu. I deteriorated further and went into respiratory distress. I remember snippets of what was happening. My family were amazing. It seemed suddenly that a consultant, not my own, but one I know well, sat at my bed side and told me that they have been using a lot of expensive drugs on me without success. She then said if they put me on life support I would never come off it. It was only then I was aware how ill I was.
Thankfully the wonderful team that look after me in the ward took over and put me on the HI-flow oxygen machine and I gradually improved. Unfortunately a few days I had a heart attack. Thankfully it was a massive one.
I am home now, very delicate and in a lot of pain. The worst thing I feel I am a burden to the nhs, thanks to that one particular con.
Thanks for listening.
