The show must have been riveting :) But glad you made it.

Matron seems finally to be getting more proactive doesn't she ? Her suggestions are all good so let's see if she delivers on them. A bit of respite wouldn't be bad would it ? I know how much you worry about Frank and it would give him a rest too. Sounds like you're handling things really well now, I hope it will soon get a bit easier.

Oh Margaret l did smile about you falling asleep at the theatre. That’s what Pete would have done too.

You do seem to be getting good care at the moment and hopefully the Azithromycin will help. Pete takes them and does well so fingers crossed for you.

Lots of love and good wishes. Xxxxx

That's good news Margaret that things are moving forward, hope the new regime helps. Pity you fell asleep at the theatre, on the positive side the show must have been relaxing if you fell asleep, did you feel better for having had a nap.? Take care and best wishes.

Hope all goes well with consultant, my turn for theatre today . No time for sleep as it is an audience participation show with lots of music of varied kind. Its an annual event to raise money for the poppy appeal. Stay calm xx

Good morning Margaret, sounds like you have a few things in progress with your health, sadly they sometimes take a while to get sorted and that is not what most people want is to wait, time is precious. But take advantage of the time for a little me time to pamper yourself before the next round of tests ect. I enjoyed the theatre trip got another one next week called Godiva Rocks, it is a tribute to all the stars in the past that our city has produced. The stage will be rocking. take care speak again soon love Kate xx

Glad the matron is starting to help you a bit more. The arizthymacin is good stuff, hopefully you will feel the effects of that once it's kicked in. Shame about the show but at least you had a nice nap x x x

It sounds as though things are going a bit better at the moment. I had to laugh at you falling asleep in the theatre - that's just what happens to me! As soon as the lights go down, so do my eyelids. Still, you made it! Well done! xx Moy

I had my prophylactic antibiotic changed to azithromycin at the beginning of August. I have had numerous chest infections while on daily doxycycline, as well as coughing continuously since July 2012. After about three weeks I realised I had stopped coughing, I’ll have to wait and see about chest infections. I do hope it works for you!
