Not Your Average Sunday

Well I don’t suppose it ever will be when it’s spent in A & E. Yup I have been a little bit poorly. To sum up without boring you… felt a bit rotten last week and developed a sore foot, which on Friday was so bad I couldn’t walk on it. And then it got worse. I can honestly say that I have NEVER EVER, EVER been in so much relentless pain. I mean it PROPER hurt. And then I became nauseous. And got a temperature. And shivery. And that all turned into a bit of a fever. Didn’t sleep a wink last night – not a wink. The pain was excruciating (I know what that word feels like now!) and I was dripping with sweat.

So this morning, my beloved took me to the hospital. And I am so glad she did. Things could have got really nasty.

Aside from the less than friendly or helpful welcome (one of the receptionists ignored me and the other, when he was ready, looked at me – no chance of a hello then?) everyone I saw was terrific. I was examined and found myself, rather quickly, being given medicine I.V. style. And painkillers – what painkillers! And all because of a nasty and unavoidable infection which can turn into a flesh eating thing and can be life threatening.

So here I am, feeling a little better, and not, it seems (and I hope!) in danger of being gripped by death. And I have a pair of crutches, which are much more difficult to use than they look.


I have to go back to be checked tomorrow (one of the conditions of them allowing me to go home) and I have a course of antibiotics to finish, but I hope to be feeling well enough to be writing and blogging again, and as normal, soon. I may have a bit of time off first though.

So that’s been my day. I have a meme from Poppy which I hope to do soon. Still no takers for my bookshelf pictures Almost Meme?
