Last Feb she went down with the Norovirus - this year it's Klebsiella Pneumoniae (www.answers.com/topic/klebsiella-pneumoniae). It sounds vile & there's some dispute amongst the doctors at A&E as to whether she should be admitted & put on an antibiotic drip as an in-patient, or sent home with 2 courses of oral antibiotics. So ... she's been sent home, called back & now sent home again.
She missed Chemo last week, as she felt unwell, & now isn't sure whether she'll be having it tomorrow either.
I suppose we'll just have to wait & see.
It was another 999-job when her temperature shot up to 39.8 on Friday evening &, whereas last time she was completely out-of-it, this time she fought me - & the Ambulancemen - all the way. I think, in the end, they just sweet-talked her into taking a nice trip in a nice ambulance ... Scary to realise how easily we can be sweet-talked when we're ill!!
Still, by the time we left A&E at 2.00am, two paramedics & a night-shift A&E doctor were proudly sporting the Cholangiocarcinoma wristband & promising to help get our name out there :-D
