Unfortunately my wonderful husband hasn't been well but the past week it escalated and we have spent most of the week running to and from the hospital with him. After his fall he hurt his neck and the tablets he was taking has meant he has had a reaction and now has gastric problems and other things. He went downhill on Wednesday very quickly and at one point both the emergency doctors and I thought he was having a heart attack. However he is now on medication and hopefully will feel better soon but they have advised him to take gaviscon and watching him take it is like watching the kids take medicine when they were little. If I wasn't so worried I would be laughing.
Then a problem with his left eye over the past few weeks worsened suddenly too and after going to a pre-booked appointment at our doctors (a wonderful locum who deserves a medal for everything she has done for us this week) she told us she wanted an urgent CT scan and made call after call to get us an appointment on the NHS with a consultant the next day. Well we went to St James and saw a wonderful eye doctor, Dr Sullivan, who, because they had lost his previous notes (no comment but it was only last week he was there) went through everything thoroughly, brought in a registrar (I really feel old when these doctors are young enough to be my children) and she also agreed to an urgent CT scan. However the CT department think differently, and say an urgent CT scan can take 2 weeks. So he has been put on steroids and we are off to the specialist again on Monday!!!!
However, in the midst of all this my CJ entry needs doing to be posted for Monday. Having booked a week off work this week I had loads of time, until medical incidents stopped me, so last night, or should I say early this morning I managed to do it and below are some sneak previews.
