Took Richard to the drs today, hes been coughing up blood a couple of days. but his nose has been blocked with blood and richard said it was probably that, but better safe than sorry and pushed him up. The dr noticed how out of breath he was just walking the 5 yards across the waiting room, then he said, as you have bronchiectasis, I said no, he has fibrosis, so he looked at his notes and apologised, he had read it wrong, he examined him but could only hear the fibrosis which disguises other sounds, however he had a temp and been having headaches so he gave him anti biotics, Wouldn't you think though that given the severity of his illness, last time we went he had the notes from the hospital and the lung capacity results, that time he said he must be very careful to avoid germs, and take each day as it comes, he would have remembered, or am I being a little silly here. He's a good dr but we have only been at that surgery less than a year.
