Seems like ages since I wrote anything. The problem has been this silly infection. My hospital rang to give me the results of my sputum test and it is my old friend Pseudomonas Aeruginosa. Well I rang my GP with the name of the antibiotic which will kill the stuff and was told a doctor would phone me back between morning and afternoon surgeries. Well surprise surprise it got to 2.30 pm and nobody had phoned.
I explained to the receptionist that it was a Friday afternoon and I would like to try and get started on the treatment before the weekend as my infection was getting worse and I had started coughing blood again. I was told not to worry once I the doctor phoned she would print the prescription off straight away. I phoned again after 5 and it just rang and rang eventually someone answered and put the phone on the desk. I could hear her talking to someone then the phone got put down! Rang again no answer so my husband went down there. Doctor phoned after 6 which is a waste of time as we live in a village and the chemist closes at 6. Needless to say a bit peeved especially as I was told by the doctor that she needed a fax from Brompton first. If someone had told me this when I initially phoned I could have sorted it. I admit I did lose it a bit so she agreed to write a prescription for a few days to tide me over the weekend.
Nasty stuff this antibiotic can’t take it with one of my asthma treatments so am more breathless than normal and have been falling asleep an awful lot but I think it is working. The volume of gunk is reducing slowly. It also upsets my stomach and I don’t usually eat carbs as I am a diabetic but I am having toast for breakfast just so I have something solid in my stomach.
I think a lot of people with lung problems are suffering in the UK at the moment as it is very damp and it is a horrible time for my fellow mouldy friends as things are rotting in the gardens.
Good news though I think I am getting better so I will be out crimble shopping in no time. Packed up 2 card orders today I am half way through one and another order has just arrived.
Keep well everybody. x
