Well today is my 2 years since I was taken ill, and next thing I remember I was in Kings College Hospital and it was January 2013 not my local hospital . I'd had pneumonia in August 2012 and thought I'd recovered , but come October I was ill again , my husband came home from work and just knew I wasn't right so called an ambulance . It turns out the pneumonia I think had travelled to my brain and caused abscesses . From reading my notes I had several operations and loads of scans , then I had a shunt inserted . My life will never be the same again, I am restricted to what I can do . I applied for my notes as my husband still gets very emotional about this time as twice he was told I might not make it . But while in hospital on two separate occasions I had two seizures so had to give up my driving licence for a year , well its way past that year now so I've applied for it back and at the moment still waiting . I missed the first few months of my first grandsons life , but I'm making up for that now . I'm so lucky that my daughter and her fiancé trust me enough to look after him . I'm alive thank goodness, but my life as it was with me being a workaholic will never be the same . I read this site all the time , so I thought I'd share my experience with you . x
