Feeling Much Better!

I'm back...

It wasn't pleasant, but it was the first chest/lung infection I've had for over six months and I haven't been prescribed steroids this time...just anti-biotics.

And an injection every three months for the osteoporosis, plus a chewable daily tablet, which the label on the box assures the hapless patient tastes of oranges...they lied...

Actually, one of the side-effects of the anti-biotics, admittedly a rare one, is 'a black hairy tongue' ...

So I haven't done much...bit of fiddling about is all.

Much thank you's to coughalot for keeping you all informed...especially as she's not feeling brilliant herself...and for all your lovely messages.

I'll be back with a tale or two to tell tomorrow...

Love From Vashti xxx

Take it easy for a few days, abs used to knock the stuffing out of me. Funny how some docs insist that steroids give abs a kick to work better then another in the same practice says they're unnecessary. Glad you're on the mend.
