Back in the Land of the Living - I think!

Just come out of hospital after collapsing in my GP Surgery last week. Oxy was 72. Been on antibiotics, oxygen, water tablets plus my usual steroids etc. Been asking for Oxy for over a year to help if I try to go out and finally got it all installed yesterday. It's wonderful.

Hope all you lovelies are keeping safe, any advise would be welcome.

Love and Hugs

That sounds a bit like a week from hell Kimlu. I can't help but think how it was fortunate that you were at your doctor's when you collapsed.I'm glad that it has lead to a good outcome with regard to getting oxygen now you are back home. Best wishes.

Thankyou, I have nothing but praise for everyone at the NHS from my own GP Surgery, Ambulance, lovely nurses, doctors et al. I could not do their job. xx

Crikey… . That’s a dramatic way to get listened to at last. I do hope things improve for you. Take it gently, get all the help you can. All the best

Glad you are recovering after that awful experience and that you've got your oxygen at last. A pity you had to go through all that. Hope you can pamper yourself or get someone else to do it as you recover. Best wishes. xxxx

Congratulations on finally getting your oxygen and best wishes for a brighter future. 😀xx

Welcome to Oxygen world Penny,it's great stuff and it does exactly what it says on the bottle,unlike some wines and beers i drink.😊😻👍 x

That was a horrid experience For you Kimlu. So happy you now have your 02 and are seeing an improvement. Lots of r and r

Love and gentle hugs cx

What an ordeal. I’m glad you’re home now and hopefully you’ll get on much better now that you have oxygen 🤗 🐑

Onwards and upwards from now on I hope for you!

Oh Penny, ☹️

Very sorry to hear you had a pnuemothorax. Awful experience. But pleased you are now home and feeling better. Also very pleased you have your oxygen installed now. Do watch the tubes, I spent the first week tripping over and almost ripping my nose to shreds because I kept forgetting I had a cannula on. Have relaxing recuperation.
