Pete is ill and so near Christmas!

Pete had a nasty migraine type of attack on Wednesday and felt a bit rough on Thursday. He had been improving slowly since then and doing well but last night he started coughing at 11.20pm. I got up with him and sat downstairs for a while and then came back to bed. Pete watched t.v. until 3am and I was woken up by him shivering next to me in bed. He then went really hot and started to burn up. I think he has a chest infection now but the sarcoidosis is also working overtime it seems. He has kindly arranged a surprise birthday party for me on my 60th birthday next Sunday and of course there is Christmas to contend with. I am trying hard to stay positive and get him as well as possible but it is so distressing. Sorry to go on as I know everyone has their problems but this year of all years with our grandson's first christmas too. Long term illness is a pain in the a***! Stay well everyone. xxxx

  • I do hope that things will sort themselves by Christmas for you, Sassy and Peter. It is such an emotional time of the year and you have some good things to look forward to. Your 60th - I was 21 when you were born. Grandchild as well to enjoy so I do hope things will be back to near normal.

    I agree with you about long term illess ==== I am ancient so must expect these annoying chest problems. Anyway I do hope that things will get better for you. And a healthiet New Year

  • Wish you well, I have gone down with a chest infection, can't seem to shake it, and I have all the family over for christmas, you do wonder how you'll cope with it all. I am also thoroughly fed up with always being ill. You take care, hopefully Peter will be well by Christmas and hopefully so will I. Take care Shirley x
