Dear BLF friends,
I am home! 😊✨🌷in my pyjamas writing to you!
I have been feeling poorly since this morning, thought it was the early blood test, my chest infection, the clarithromycin, the after ops..and said to myself I’m going to go home, feet up, green tea and rest!
By 5pm I felt really tired, barely standing, and I thought the GP hasn’t phoned me with the results as he said and so I did, imagine they had been sent to a different doctor, he was waiting..
He has tried to get through to the endocrinologist for guidance without luck and will try again tomorrow.
Anyway my cortisol had still dropped and it was minimal which showed that my adrenal glands insufficiency was critical so I had to take 10mg prednisone straight away, Bea has had to rush to the pharmacy to get some hydrocortisone tablets. They are 10mg capsules, I have to take 3 first thing tomorrow morning instead of the pred and maybe another couple during the day, the GP will let me know.
If I start tummy trouble or fainting Bea has to call the ambulance service. If not I have to live my normal life.
Coping with daily steroids, finding the right dosage etc is difficult but I have followed medical guidance so how did I get to this point, as I said above I must have had too much on my plate.
So poor Bea has been looking after me, checking on the internet, she fed me with avocado, olive oil reduced sugar baked beans, a yoghurt and sugar free liquorice for dessert 😃
It took me ages to eat a few spoonfuls of the mix but I felt so grateful to have such a nice daughter 💕, I certainly didn’t want to disappoint her 😉
I loved to see Aria and the garden with a view, I sat a little outside with her and could feel the sun warming up my legs..
So fingers crossed my dear friends, that being home will make all the difference.
Take care tonight xx
