December Meme ... Day 12

Day 12 → talk about this year in medical news

For any who know me, they will realise that I have had some tough health problems.

Back in January I had a viral chest infection, that was so bad that my GP was worried that I had a blood clot on my lungs, or had a heart attack.  Fortunately all was OK, but it took 7 weeks before I was well enough to go back to work.

Then I broke a crown off a tooth, and when treatment started I ended up with an infection, so lost the tooth ... and got an infection in the socket!

Now, I am off work again with a virus.  However my doctor has said that the virus is just the name to put on the off-work certificate, but mostly it is emotional exhaustion that has knocked me down.  So 2 weeks off already, and now this coming week, but hoping to cope with going back to work next week.

Other medical news was Dad having another stroke in the Spring, and then (as you know) he died on the 2nd September)

His sister was in hospital for 2 weeks with BP problems, and a urine infection.

Jiffy had to have his anal glands removed, as well as a large wart removed from his face a month after Dad's death.  He has also had 3 or 4 skin infections this year (he has one at present)

Roll on 2017!!!

Oh dear - you have had a catalogue of nasty viruses haven't you. I really hope 2017 is better! Do you take multivitamin tablets? I know they mostly don't do anything, but at least they could help boost up your immune system.

You've had a tough year and it's no wonder that it's knocked you sideways

Rest and relax and recuperate
