The first snows of Xmas

Slightly spoiled by my developing pneumonia. Luckily I was able to persuade the OOH GP that I didn't need to be admitted by promising to go to my GP first thing tomorrow for bloods and CXR.

Looking forward to a night of hot water bottles and gentle hallucinations, four calling birds, three french hens, two turtle doves and (altogether now) a handful of amoxcil capsules...

Truth is i feel pretty ill all the blinking time, Tt. At least this variation isn't painful (yet). The doctor was good though, and gave me the option of a bed right away or going home and seeing the GP first thing. Scoffing a day's worth of amoxicillin for tea now x

Oh no it’s a horrid thing to get. I got it a few months after having the pneumonia vac but I think it would have probably been much more serious if I hadn’t had the jab. Ironically my gp gave me no choice and shoved it in my arm while I was trying to tell him that things never actually go for my chest (a small lie!). So I’m not sure who the last laugh was on but he was the one who had to leave his busy surgery and rush up to my house when I collapsed in a heap after not eating for five days! X

Have to wait till my bloods ok and taking antibiotics by mouth will be enough. But I’m not worried now,a few lovely people on the ward. We have masses of snow here, nice to see from inside.

Take care xx

Thank you. I'm "as well as could be expected" I think. The GP follow-up is going to be a problem, though, as apparently, they have all called in to say they can't get into work due to the snow! x

I hope you continue to improve. The GPs will probably be with their kids having fun in the snow. It has been known .....
