Hi, you may have been wondering what has happened since my flu jab blog, it isn’t a good story. As you know, I haven’t been very well since I got back from Cyprus, breathing problems, which I have had for years, got a lot worse, well, on Wednesday evening they got really bad. I was struggling to breath all afternoon and at 9pm I phoned an ambulance, I thought a few minutes of oxygen from the paramedics would make me a lot better, but it didn’t work, they took me into the local Belford Hospital where, after another three hours, they started to get my breathing regulated. The rest of the night was spent in the High Dependency Unit on assisted breathing and steroids being pumped into my arm, well, there was actually two tubes in aach arm, don’t know what the other three were for lol. I forgot the wires from all the pads that were stuck to my chest.
Meanwhile Celeste is oblivious to all this, but it was coming the time for me to see her on the Facebook video link before she went to work, no way round it, had to tell her I was in hospital. She would be panicking anyway, but I played it down saying I was just in for tests, not a blatant lie, they were taking tests to see what had caused this episode. This ploy, of course, didn’t work, I had a very worried lady on the other end of my Blackberry Messenger. I got out of hospital yesterday and told Celeste the full story on video, she could then see that I was on my way to recovery and not panic so much.
I am on the road to recovery now and the hospital tests are getting analized, few weeks till I find out what was wrong. Thanks for dropping in, take care.
