When In Doubt, Get It Checked Out!!….

The past few weeks Ive battled flu, I have moaned about it chronic on all social media sites and the Kiddos have suffered too, I am sure everyone was annoyed at how I was banging on about being ill all the time!

Last Sunday Was the hottest day of the year we had planned to go to the in-laws for dinner as we do every-other-week. We don’t have a garden so I was looking forward to letting the kids play out in nanny and granddad’s garden for the afternoon in the sun! I woke and said to the husband it was not a good idea I went I woke feeling terrible. He took the kiddos of and arrived back early evening.

The day went by a blur, I slept most of it and went to bed early. Monday morning I woke early only to be worse, I really didn’t feel right, I had been sick which prompted me to make an appointment with the doctor. I didn’t expect them to do much, I expected them to turn me away and say, you just have a bad bout of flu, but in fact her first words were, gosh you look terrible! Sit down let me examine you!

I could barely open my eyes, I was sweating from head to toe and I could barely breath. My chest felt as though it was about to cave in. I left with a strong course of antibiotics and the diagnosis of Pneumonia! and under strict instructions of, if I did’t feel better within 24 hours of taking the first 3 antibiotics, I was to be admitted to hospital.

I managed to get home and collapsed on the sofa, when I got my energy back I made my way back to bed and thats where I stayed for the next few days, only getting out for a few snippets through out the day.

I honestly thought it was just a bad bout of flu, I am so glad I made the decision to go to the doctors. If I had left it any longer I would have had to been admitted to hospital and that would of been my worst nightmare, the best doctor has to be my husband! He has been a legend, looking after me and the children!

So the moral of my tale, is when in doubt, get it checked out!

    This is such an important lesson! So often we ‘soldier on’ when ill, thinking we don’t have time to be poorly, because there are things in the diary, but it’s so important to listen to your body. I’m glad you did to yours & hope you’re feeling much better now?
