Chest infection update….

Posted in Uncategorized at 9:01 am by Aleksan

I have been prescribed a broad spectrum Tetracycline Antibiotic. (Exactly what I would have prescribed for a patient like me 50 years ago)

Went downhill yesterday evening, fever, continuous coughing, falling asleep and apathetic – after a few phone calls by Sarah Johns to 111 and from various remote hubs to me, all friendly and considerate, I got an appointment at a clinic in Romsey. Lovely Nurse Mandy all togged up examined me. 38.3 temp, oxygen 94 and crepitations (crakling bubbly sounds) both sides of lungs – If my oxygen had been 92 or less, she said I would be straight off to Hospital!

Feeling a little better this morning, and thanks to Penny and Sarah J for looking after me,, and thank you for all your kind wishes for my recovery. Will get up now and take it a bit steady avoiding sunlight and alcohol…
