So I came in to QE hospital Kings Lynn Wednesday afternoon it was bloody heaving so was 10 pm by the time I had my first meds, which caused an upset stomach meaning one thing in hospital……….. side room getting away for 87 yr old Dorris shouts and bangs cups etc because apparently she’s in the wrong bed or Edna opposite who shouts at Dorris making her all the more volatile all ….at…..3…am.
So Friday night I take a turn for the worse feeling jittery hot cold and generally terrible my wonderful nurse was the mutt’s nuts she made me feel extremely secure when I had been scared as I was on the mend other than trying to avoid refeeding syndrome so my pegs on a really low 25mls per hour.
So today… I had a few odd questions asked who’s in your home, who else stays there…..I answered n they seemed happy. Then some asked in anyone at home was sick PANIC PANIC PANIC why what have I got have I made my children ill. Then nothing till I call G who says I’m downstairs. …. I was confused public health call him and told him I had a Group A invasive strep infection in my blood. http://www.hpa.org.uk/topics/infectiousdiseases/infectionsaz/streptococcigroupa/frequentlyaskedquestions/
And ask him to come in for some antibiotics thankfully just for Daisy as she had an infection recently.
So I hear all this but haven’t actually been told anything and I looooooooose it I go crazy. How dare public health tell him before me…… I off the back of crazy mumma had a doctor explains things to me…
Thankfully I’ve not felt too bad this afternoon so haven’t concentrated too much on that. Especially thank you to my lovely Portuguese nurses.
Positives cellulitis has almost gone and my house now stinks of bleach
Course I’m still smiling
