Update and Hello

Hello everyone.

Firstly thank you for all your kind thoughts and lovely comments.

I thought I better pop in today to let you know what is happening in my neck of the woods.

As you know I was discharged from Hospital on Thursday am of last week. I still felt very unwell but didn’t really know what was wrong.

So I took myself off to bed early with a bit of a hot head and very flushed face. I had only been in bed about an hour when I came back downstairs and said to D. I need to go back to Hospital. He took one look at me and I could see from the expression on his face it was not good. I was bright red. Actually looked like I had fallen asleep under a sun bed for a good day or so. My face, neck, chest, arms and most worryingly my baby bump was scarlet! I felt very hot but temp only read 36 deg???????

As we had our little man in bed asleep and he has had such a disturbed time of it recently. I asked my Sister in Law to drop me back to the labour ward which she did. Well at 2.30am they decided I had a clinical infection – whatever that means and discharged me with antibiotics. So D. and little man had to come out at that ridiculous time in the morning and pick me up. Poor little man was so tired and worried about his mummy. Anyhow a few days later I am still very poorly antibiotics are not doing anything and I just feel really ill. I saw a different consultant on Monday morning who immediately sent me for a whole lot of blood tests and told me to stop taking the antibiotics as they are not doing anything. As of today I am waiting for the results to see if I have Scarlet Fever or Slapped Face otherwise known as Parvovirus.

So if I get the results today I will pop back later and let you know.

I haven’t even managed to do any crochet so am afraid nothing to show you!

I have had a sneak look at your blogs, but not left any comments yet. When I feel better I will be back for a longer linger, but things look stunning and OMG how quick you are all working.

Take Care

  2. So sorry to hear things are still not good for you - will be thinking of you. I had Scarlet Fever when I was a youngster and it wasn't pleasant then so I really do feel for you. Take care xxxx

  3. Clare,

    I'll be thinking about you and hope all is going to work out for you. Don't worry about the little stuff--you and baby bump are #1 at the moment.

  4. Thank you girls. Yes I am taking it very easy but it is very boring! Clare x

  5. Thank you for following my little blog!

    I'm so sorry to hear that you've been having troubles; I hope everything turns out well.
