Not the day I expected

Not the day I expected

Planned for months our annual Xmas party day for our breath easy group was taking place yesterday at alocal hotel. I wwasn't well on Monday with a temperature and felt an infection coming on and thought it would not be wise to risk passing it on to anybody. Decided not to take the usual amoxicillin which I had taken 3 months in a row without first asking a doctor if I could take an alternative one. Phoned yesterday and got an appointment for 9.30 . The lady doctor I saw for the first to me was very thorough and looking through my history decided having tests would be advisable .she booked my into a new unit at the hospital bypassing A&E and ordered an emergency ambulance. I had bloods taken, given an ECG and hada chest x ray. Took sometime before the test results came through and iI wondered at 1pm how my friends at tnbthe club were enjoying their lunch . all there Xmas cards and choc and biscuits I was due to donate for raffle prizes were still at home. A consultant came to tell me the results and told me the doctor had suspected I had water on the lungs, hence the emerge cy and she had done the right thing . I was allowed home after taking 6 steroids and 2 Doxycycline. With others to take with me. I have nothing but praise for the doctor and hospital staff who looked after me so well despite being so busy.
