So had surgery to mend together my broken wrists, four weeks ago and to be honest, like most of us, I’ve been through numerous surgeries so was feeling just a wee bit sorry for myself- thank you to all of you here, who helped cheer me up.

However, last week, I seemed to ya be picked up a cough- roll through to Sunday and I was taken in blue light ambulance to hospital; couldn’t catch my breath.

Still in hospital and will be so until at least Friday. Lots of tests and so far, it seems to be a lung infection but they’re not certain?

Anyway, again just feeling sorry for myself and perhaps some reassurance that this does all stop, at some point 😢

Oh lovely Marie, I’m so sorry. 💐 What a rotten time you are having. You’re more than entitled to feel sorry for yourself, you must be feeling poorly. Sending big (but gentle) hugs. Message me if you want a friendly ear xx

Thank you. I just keep telling myself, worse things happen. Usually that works- just every now and then, I feel a little fed up with it all.

Onwards and upwards! 😀

Oh you poor thing I was rushed to A&E on Tuesday with a similar infection I managed to escape the same day with massive dose of antibiotics. I’m on the mend ish and taking it easy I can’t imagine how pants you must be feeling you’ve really got my sympathy I know how you feel but obviously not with your poorly wrists too. Sending you a hug hope you manage to escape soon.

Thanks I’m distracting myself with rubbish TV which I don’t normally watch but it seems to be doing the trick. I dislike being in hospital at anytime but it sounds like you’re in the best place with your infection I bet they sort you out quickly I think I would have been better with iv antibiotics instead of pills which are massive my husband joked that they looked more like suppositories than antibiotic pills. Hope you make a quick recovery.

I've only just seen this Marie & checking back I missed your previous post completely! Hecky peck, what a to do. I feel for you, not only recovering from surgery but to then get a lung infection, greedy! Seriously, I know from experience how painful anything lung related can be so I hope you're being made comfortable.

If you're bored or just feel like it, pm me, hospital stays can be relentless until visiting time so just if or whenever, I’m there to chat away to.

Take care, please! 😚
