Photo Friday ... Well Not Quite!

Flashing lights with my name
Even though I have had a crumby week ... not being able to breathe, at all.  I have had the best of help from the docs, as far as it goes.

I have been tested for Pulmonary Embolisms, Heart Attack, Blood disease ... but all OK.  So, in so many ways that's good news.  Still have a headache and can't breathe as well as I should, but as a great friend pointed out, I have had a physically tough 2 years and last year was very emotionally stressful, as well.  So really I just need time to chill - Thanks Deb, I think that's what I am agreeing with, and my GP said it sounded feasible.

BTW, I couldn't get hold of Tim and Claire on Monday when there was a strong possibility I would be staying in hospital, but my neighbour saw me as I was coming back from the docs, and "stole" Jiffy! He had a great time. They have a one year old, and in the afternoon they went to another town to have a walk along a beach! I think he was quite upset that I didn't have to stay in hospital!!

Anyway I had to go to the solicitors again on Friday, to sign an insurance policy for Dad's account.  So I took Jiffy in and we had a lovely long, slow walk ... so I have photos.  However, Photobucket is again being unhelpful, so I will post them when I can win the argument with my pc!!

There's one thing to be said for the NHS - they will certainly test you for everything!! I'm glad it's nothing major, and hopefully a week off will be just what is needed to get back on your feet. I second what Deb said - definitely a stressful couple of years which can impact on health. Take it easy!

The NHS are great - and certainly I had every test possible, so even though I am still struggling, I pass my MOT!!

I am sorry you are still so troubled by your chest.

Good to know your neighbour will happily help with Jiffy if needs be, though.

I think Jiffy had too much fun! He was exhausted that evening! It was such a relief to know he was safe and cared for.

Sorry to hear you're not feeling well! With all the stress of losing and burying your mother, and your dad's illness, it's no wonder your body is saying "Enough!"

It's a hard lesson to learn, but I am trying to be good and lazy this week.

I'm praying for you.

Thank you

Stress and exhaustion really REALLY mess you up! You need to look after yourself my dear. Glad the doctor agrees with me!

And yay for good neighbours!

So, it's all your fault I am home again this week!! Seriously though I am being a good girl and having a me-week, well with Jiffy & Dad thrown in!

I think Jiffy had too much fun! He was exhausted that evening! It was such a relief to know he was safe and cared for.

Glad to hear that the tests came back negative. Not being able to breathe is a terrifying thing. Take care of yourself and rest if possible. Hugs and prayers.

Thank you - it was very scary last week especially. Still struggling, but now I know whatever it is isn't serious, it is less stressful.

Thanks Jamie - I have been signed off for another week. Although I am feeling a bit better, I know I have a long way to go still.
