Hi just a short entry to say I will not be around much for the next week or two for some reason unbeknown to me I have managed to get Pneumonia. I had a bit of a cough from early on in the week but by Thursday it had become out of control. So I managed to get an appointment with the locum and she said chest infection and gave me antibiotics. During Thursday night I got steadily worse so we had to call out NHS 24 We had a Paramedic here and an ambulance within minutes did all the test for a heart attack all was well with that dept. I then had a call from the on call doctor she said all was well other than a temperate and to take, guessed it Paracetamol the tablet or every occasion. Friday I was getting worse all day the antibiotics were upsetting my stomach and I ached from to to bottom. Last night we had to call out NHS 24 again diffeart doc he said Pneumonia and he would try to keep me out of hospital so more antibiotics and steroids to help me along. So here I sit in bed poor Stuart is being nurse housekeeper etc but the stairs take it out of you. Today I have been a wee bit better and hopefully all the pills I am taking will soon have me back up and about. People around have been so kind phone calls visits not to me but Stuart spoke to them I have even had flowers for the neighbour across the road. Will have to go now am very tired after writing this put in a good word for me upstairs please.
Love
