Hi since my last blog about two weeks ago, things have changed after having RA for 14years. My meds were changed two months ago. I was put on methotrexate everything was going ok. I went out for a eddie Stobart event the other Saturday when I got home I could,t stop shaking with cold but also had a temperature. Went to bed had a restless night. Sunday felt a bot better went to the RA course on the Monday hopeing all would be ok. Got home and again not well, called the doc and was given the go over and my temperature was through the roof. I was rushed to hospital, I was given fluids as I was being sick and had a ct scan and found I had a lung infection. The meth had scarred my lungs I was on oxygen. I came out last Friday not on oxygen but can only walk very short distances or can do anything strenuous with out sitting down. My recovery takes about five minutes at the moment. It will be a few weeks before I can go back to work. On the good side if I had to be on oxygen all the time because the scarring was permeant I would not be able to go back. But it looks like it is nearly gone, I have to go back for more tests and all well and good I should be able to turn in a month. On the bright side I have had a few days rest from the hum drum of nomal life, the nurses were great and the food at Kettering general is first class and the weather is fab. I now have a few weeks to catch up on my reading and writing my novel. Hope you are all well and let you know how I get on.
