Would that I could.
The DP had to drive to the Surgery. Day 3 I think of this feeling like s**t.
In for the 6 monthly Blood Pressure check, although I think it is a tad longer than that.
It isn't just policemen, nurses look younger too. Urine sample - fine.
She wanted to take blood. I said I really couldnt cope with that today. I have narrow veins and always end up battered and bruised, so that was shelved.
Blood Pressure taken.
I mentioned my breathing problems, she asked to see me breathe. "I do not see your diaphragm moving. At all."
She then fetched in my old friend C who got the stethoscope on me and then really told me off.
For not getting to the surgery sooner. "You have COPD for Gods sake."
Antibiotics and steroids. As steroids have accelerated my bone deterioration I was reluctant so we did a deal. If I feel 'better after 2 antibiotic pills I do not have to take the steroids, but if not I do.'
I think this is a double edged sword as I doubt I will feel better after only two antibiotic pills!
Next week I am booked in with the breathing clinic nurse. To check on the breathing, she will also take blood, and give me an E.C.G. How can anyone complain about our wonderful NHS?
Oh and my Blood Pressure was fine!
It is so windy here I have stayed in the house. Possibly tomorrow I will get back to the shedudio. It is forecast still with the strong winds.
To be honest I am ill. And fed up.
