Been to the GP to find out what is available in the community regarding IV antibiotics. He is going to look into what is available here - hospital at home entails a nurse visiting up to 2 times a day plus social care - home carer's. But they do not do IV’s! The consultant said when I get these bad infections need IV antibiotics but at the minute that means an admission for 3 times a day medication. Which to me should be done at home, asked if my husband could not be trained to give them if someone put in a cannula (he is a nurse) he said he would see what he could find out. Going into hospital puts you more at risk and having a line put in would also lead to further infections. We are going to ring the hospital again tomorrow about blood gases and saline test 3 weeks down the line still no joy. On the other hand breathing seems a little easier today hope it’s the anti fungal's starting to work Val
