So last time I posted I assumed I'd soon be back to normal after my emeregency hospital adventure. It turns out I was wrong.
I was starting to get back on my feet - between intensive physiotherapy sessions (an important part of my shoulder recovery) I'd even managed a visit to the shops to make a start on my Christmas shopping and actually had the Christmas tree up and decorated - when I started to feel really unwell. After two days of struggling to even get out of bed, I went to the doctor. It turned out I had a raging fever - no wonder I felt so bad - and I was sent off for pathology tests and then given a course of antibiotics.
Five days on and I'm only just starting to feel a little bit better but nowhere near able to do anything more than shower and spend a few minutes looking at my slowly dying garden before I end up back in bed.
Unless things improve very soon I'm none too sure that I'll even get to our big family Christmas dinner - and for someone who LOVES Christmas this is a serious worry.
