Another chest infenctio 😥

Good morning/afternoon/evening,

Well, after a few very good days last week I started feeling rather icky once the sun really started shining on us.

Needed some shopping yesterday and a friend agreed to take me, she took one look at me and made me ring the drs.

No appointments til Tuesday the receptionist said unil I mentioned my copd, can you be here in ten minutes was the response, I'm on my way says I.

Didn't see my usual doc, saw the lady of the practice, a quick look at my file and a little listen to my chest and I get anti biotics, she also noticed my dry skin and gave me cream for that also.

She wants to review my inhalers once I've finished my heart tests at hospital as well.

So here I am at 2 in the morning being a tad wheezy and not very sleepy having a nice read of the website, thinking wether to put on an audio book to try and sleep to.

Goodnight/morning hope you are all keeping well 😷😷

Hi , Keith , I hope you managed to get som sleep.

The same thing has happened to me, finished a course of AB s and steroids three weeks ago....now it's come back, so more pills.

I thought it might be hay fever as well, as so much pollen about. I borrowed my daughters hand held fan to see if that helps with my breathing too.

It's a misty morning here, the birds are up and about ....the blackbird was still twittering when I went to bed....it had a very short sleep too it seems.

Take care now.

Mild to moderate I was told then promptly shoved out the hospital lol. Most days I barely feel any effects but when it hits it hits hard.

My respiratory nurse is trying to get hold of my hospital results as they don't seem to have entered everything they should, she says.

Antibiotics seem to be kicking in and it's cooled right down with the rain 😎😎🎂
