Hi

Well still in hospital! Sats low at 82 continuing with the IV antibiotic's, asked this morning why the sats are so low he said due to cavities in my lungs containing the infection it is difficult for the antibiotics to penetrate! Can't really concentrate and tired all the time urgh.

Give me some multi vitamins to get me going ha ha :)

Hope you are all healthy and well this morning Val x

Hi Val, so sorry you are still in the hospital, I'm visualising the cavities closing so the antibiotics can sort out the infection :) Keep on resting, as you sleep your own body's natural healing process kicks in. Wishing you feeling better soon with sats in the 90s before long :)

I'm doing good today - just off to exercise.

Hugs Zoee x

blimey val - your milking that a bit now - some people will do anything for free board and lodgings :)

Hope you feel better soon Val - nothing worse than being in hospital coz that gets you down and slows your recovery, hopefully those antibiotics will kick in soon and you can get home .

Hi Val, sorry to hear you are still in hospital I know its not a nice place to be but its the best for resting and getting your strength back because when you are home you will be tempted to push yourself, which is not always good.

Rest up hope those antibiotics get working so you can be home soon.

Take care

Valm I hope you get home soon too x was just wondering if they give you any physio to move the pockets of infection ?.. like us with bronchi, we are given pep device to disslodge stuff in lung. I can't live without mine, would get completely congested in a couple of days.

No physio's have been just told it is taking time to sort this time knocked me for 6 though x

Didn't know you could take your lap top into hospital, gives you something to look at and keep you in contact with the outside world. Just keep thinking - Windemere see you soon.
