High temperature

Wednesday night after being at the hospital, I started to get a headache. By the morning my head ache was worse and I had a temperature. At about 7am the temp was 38.9 and I was burning up and then i was sick.

Charito opened the window for me and fanning me to cool down. I knew I would have to ring the hospital and tell them, as anything over 38 Im supposed to call.

I didn't want to call until 9am though. If I called earlier I would have had to go into A&E and then go through all of the problems I had last time and up in AMU where they are not used to dealing with cancer patients.

I managed to suffer till 9am and called my usual ward where, as I thought, they asked me to come

So I packed my things ready for a stay in hospital.

I arrived and they put me on one of beds where i could rest.  I had my phone turned off and didn't know that Charito had been try to call me. She panicked a bit and my daughter to see if she could call in to the hospital to make sure I was ok.

After a number of test they decided to send me home with some antibiotics, ratherthan keep me in. Amy turned up just as I was leaving and i had already managed to let Charito know what was going on.

I had to come back to the hospital today for more test and I've just been told they are keeping me in.

I will keep you all updated later as writing this on my phone is quite difficult.

  1. Hopefully things get sorted, and you can still go for the transplant as normal. Nigel

  2. I'm doing Reiki on you right now, making the assumption you want me to send you some powerful healing energy rather than waiting for your 'permission', and will keep doing it at 6 a.m. and 6 p.m. Colombia time until I hear there's been a turn-around. And I am putting you on the Intender's List of people needing prayer/intention so we can keep you on the SCT schedule... this IS for the highest and best good of all concerned, so be it and SO IT IS! Whoooooooooo!

  3. I never know what to say, so often say nothing at all.
    I hope you feel ab fab soon and your transplant goes really well. You probably have a world wide web of watchers who equally feel incapable of commenting, but please remember we might not say anything, but we are all still wishing you all the very best, so keep up the NDY.

    Love Lorna and Mike
