well I managed to get rid of the knee infection by the beginig of January, however it did mean that we spent New years eve at home for the first time in 30 years and Christmas day was very shortlived for me as I managed an hour in the plume and then stayed awake long enough to eat Christmas dinner and a couple of glasses of Fleurie which I had to force down. However asw soon as the IV course finished on Boxing day things stared to pick up, I actually started to feel human again and on 30th dec was told the infection level was low enough to restart my physio.
So 2 weeks later and some hard work I was getting pretty much back to where I was before the infection.
That is until last Wednesdy when I had to call out the Doc who comfirmed that I had a bladder infection and prescribed a frther course of antibiotics.. Now normally this passes quite quickly, unlike passing water which is very painful, but combined with a neurological condition such as mine the infection causes multiple other problems and the only way to deal with this is to go to bed until it passes.
So that's where I've been for the last 5 days, along with several buckets to piss in as I couldn't get up to go to the loo. No fun for B' as I was perching over the edge of the bed during the night every half an hour making excriuciating noises.
After 3 days the antibiotics kicked in and the peeing pains stopped but then all the other stuff started happening, pains, sweats, stomach gripes, hadn't eaten for 5 days. So now it looks like its over which is just as well as I go back in to hospital tomorrow to have my CVC tube removed, what's the betting that brings some further problems.
