Not been the best week of my life! I wasn't well.My daughter came round and was horrified with my low oxygen levels.I was admitted to our local hospital and have been on oxygen ever since. Surprisingl how many others are in here.No idea what's caused it!

I always do,it's the quickest way to get out of here?😄

How strange Aingeful. Hope you’re feeling well enough to return home soon. Thinking of you. XxxHave you done a lateral flow test? Just to rule it out. Xxx

Ok, just a thought. Lots of love to you. Xx💜❤️💜

So sorry to hear what has happened, I think I would be fed up also. Rest up and hope that you can go home soon. xx

Maybe Aingeful it's perhaps just your body saying that maybe supplementary oxygen even at a very low dose may be the way to go for the future,i hope it isn't and that some fleeting bug has knocked the wind out of you but even if it is,it's no big deal as many on here manage very well with our little friend O2.Get better and home soon.

Best wishes Ski's and Scruff's x

Hope they can get to the bottom of things while you are in hospital and that you are soon well enough to go home xx

Thank goodness your daughter noticed.One of mine rang today to say she has Covid, been so careful as she is asthmatic.

I have sent her an oximeter so she can check her SATS .

Best wishes to you for a speedy recovery.

Aingeful, I'm so sorry you've ended up in hospital and that they get you sorted out ASAP so that you can get home 🤗

Thanks! I couldn't have sorted this myself.

Sorry to hear you've had a bad week Aingeful and hope they soon have you back to rights. Sometimes it just seems like it must our turn to have a bad time for a while. Last weekend my bathroom flooded, this weekend my central heating broken down and I'm freezing. Well, a bit chilly anyway. 🙁 x

I've "liked" your post but felt sorry for you. If its not our bodies letting us down its our gadgets? As the years have gone by, so has our ability to fix things!

Gadgets can be easily fixed or ditched, bodies are more of a worry. I hope they have yours working again soon. 😘

Trouble is, they don't make them now like they used to do. 😂 When they get you fixed you'll be better than new. 😘

So sorry to hear that Don. I trust someone came pronto to fix the flood and the heating system? you certainly don't want that breaking down in mid winter!! I hope you didn't suffer too much from the cold. Wrap up warm and take care. xxx❤️😊

Oh Don that is awful. Get it sorted . You feel the cold more when you are old . Well I do any way and I am blaming my age as the thermometer says it's a lot warmer than I think, obviously not accurate!

You've had a week similar to mine, Don. Air-conditioner in car died (Compressor) ...$1135.00. Then a leak under my kitchen sink requiring an entire new faucet assembly $485.00. I feel such gratitude for being able to have them repaired. (I dare not complain.)


Hope you feel better soon. Xxx

Sorry to here this Sheila. Good your daughter got you so sorted. I hope you are feeling better soon. Sending Welsh cwtches xxSheila 💕💕

It can be alarming for others to see your oxy sats being so low. Mine are awful if I bend to tie my shoe… it does recover after a minute or two. Get well soon

Dear Aingeful, poor old you. Not surprising you're fed up- and bored stiff too I would guess. Hope they can soon get you better and able to go home. xxxx

Glad it’s all being sorted, wishing you a speedy recovery. x🌷

So glad your daughter was around and got you to hospital. I am sure they will sort you out and you can get back home soon. Love and hugs x

So sorry you're confined and not well, Aingeful. I agree with Skischool. Oxygen has been a definite plus for me. I can't explain it, because my oxygen transfer (DLCO) numbers have dropped by 12 since I began using oxygen three years ago. but my oxygen needs have lessened. I began 15 hrs x 2 lpms daily when walking at a normal pace, and 3 lpms if oxygen dropped when cleaning, bending, etc.. I rarely required 3 lpms. I have only ever needed oxygen when walking, never when sitting. When Covid came along, I stopped using my poc when out shopping due to the poc making oxygen from the air in the space in which it is being used. I didn't want to chance breathing in the virus. (One can hope, but never really know for certain that folks are staying in when ill.) My trips have been of shorter duration, of course, and I do not rush. I definitely need access to oxygen when I walk quickly or for long distances, and when I do my house cleaning but my oximeter shows definitely improvement. Best wishes for a quick recovery and return home. J
