Hi everyone. Just a quick post to let you know I’m still alive and kicking. My silence is due to spending what seems to be my annual few weeks’ stay in hospital due to unknown causes.
I went in with a sore hip, which, together with a fever implied BUG. After many blood and bug-in-a-bottle tests, together with heroic doses of vancomycin, I seem to have recovered. The bug defeated, though at some cost: daily blood and bottle tests helped drop my HB from 110 to 74.
I’m home now, but with so little energy, my Nephrologist ordered four units of blood. I had the final 2 units last night on dialysis. So this morning I’m waiting for a burst of energy that will enable me to walk further than twice around the bed.
But things seem to be on the up, except the hip, which is taking its time. Hopefully, I’ll be back to the blog with inspiration and enthusiasm in the next couple of weeks.
