Hello everyone, Helen here!
I am just back from another session in hospital, six days this time. I managed to get the e difficile bug
again, I went in for an ordinary blood test and when they put some drugs in the line I started to shiver
and shake and my temp shot up - an infection inthte line. Out came the line and straight into hospital
went I! I felt lously for the first few days, but home this morning and feeling really great - let's hope it
lasts this time. Now I no longer have a line, canulas or stitches in I feel as though I have 'got my body
back' after six and a half long months.
I have had lots of visits and been taken out to lunch on several occassions, to those concerned it was
lovely to see you all and I do so appreciate the effort everyone has taken over me. One of the nurses
commented that I lunched out alot and did I do any cooking! Once I can stand still long enough pick up
the pans I'll be giving my lovely new cooker what for. It is the most glorious day today and makes me so
happy to be alive.
Bob is slogging away at his course, he will be home at the weekend and Dad is doing a sterling job of
caring for me.
Hope you are ALL keeping well yourselves
Much love Helen xxx
