Excuse the title. I am absolutely sure that this course of steroids and antibiotics have not touched the haemophilus influenza. As all symptoms pretty much the same - only felt better on one day and it wasn't yesterday or today. So, picked up a spit pot from the Doc's surgery today to do some more samples to have tested. I rang yesterday to ask to get one with the labelled bag for it to go into but he left a message with the receptionist today to say there was no need if everything had cleared up - what made him think it had this time? He knows as well as I do this could be a long hike and - as he calls me his expert patient he knows I wouldn't ask for one if I thought I was getting better. Last steroids today and last antibiotic on Thrusday am. Well at least he is optimistic! Glad someone is!
