I'm not surprised, I have been playing down the symptoms somewhat, after all there's nothing more boring than someone rabbiting on about their symptoms is there ?
Two visits to the hospital, one to the doctor and one ex-ray.
I declined their invitation for a few days 'inside' i.e. the hospital. I can't leave my cats.
I'm not happy about the medications I've received though, I'm not a pill-popper and after reading through the list of 'side effects' and 'warnings' I very much doubt if I shall be taking them all, I will take my chances with anti-biotics I think. It made me wonder if in some cases it's the disease that kills or the medications.
I've also been given one of those 'things' that asthmatics have, like a plastic container that you squirt some liquid in and breathe it in, that's to open the airways.
On a lighter note, I've had to smile, I was lying down with my hands across my middle and found that if I exert a little pressure, I can sound like one of those teddy bears that growl when you press their tummies - I found that quite funny, well you've got to laugh haven't you.
The noise I'm normally making when breathing, is like a loud creaking - think old door opening and you've got it.
Thank you for your good wishes, I really do appreciate them all, forgive me for not thanking you personally but I'm a little tired, and hopefully I'll be back to annoy you all very soon.
I have to say I have received the best of attention from the NHS, no delays, I was treated with the utmost respect. I will never believe a negative report about the NHS again.
