First real setback

Just got home from spending the week in West Suffolk Hospital. Had another bout of pneumonia. Big doses of I V antibiotics has cleared the infection. But it's only the second time in hospital since September 2014 when I was given a year at best 18months to live. The fibrosis in my lungs is progressive and doctors told me that any infection will cause more damage. Sadly they were right. It's made things slightly more difficult this time. But the fight goes on to regain a fitness level somewhere like I had. Pleased to have shocked the consultant to still be alive longer than he predicted look on his face was priceless. Off to Papworth on Tuesday to see the consultants there will be interesting to hear what they have to say. TimS
