What a week

Hi everyone, well I hope you've had a better day than I have. I mentioned in an earlier post that my hubby John who suffers from MS wasn't too well but it got a whole lot worse and he was admitted to hospital today. It was very scarey as they thought he had an aneurism at first which is life threatening. Thankfully after doing a CT scan they found that wasn't the case. However they decided he had some kind of infection but weren't sure what type or which part of the body. When I left they were waiting for the blood cultures but have started him on antibiotics anyway. They got him quite stable so hopefully he will have a better night and tomorrow they will know the extent of the problem.
I feel totally exhausted not getting much sleep the last couple of nights so hopefully I'll have a good night and feel refreshed tomorrow ready to face whatever transpires.
We are still waiting for the insurance to come and assess the damage to our drive so it is all fun and games here at the moment.
Never mind these things come to try us but I just wish they wouldn't all come at once!
Hopefully I'll have better news tomorrow.
Sorry for being so gloomy.
Love, Pat xx
