At this moment… (3pm, Wednesday)

We only got back from the hospital about 2 hours ago. My levels of things that are meant to be dropping are now dropping rapidly. My neutrophils are closing in on 0.0 and a lot of my other levels have bottomed out.

To complicate things, it seems that I have a chest infection. This is of course what we have been trying to avoid approaching this time of no immunity. I was checked out by the doctor this morning and was sent for x-rays, but they didn’t reveal enough at that time. My temperature was okay (37C), but my blood pressure was low and my heartbeat high. I was feeling a bit worse than usual, but manageable, so we came home.

Now, at nearly 3pm, my chest congestion is getting more noticeable and my temperature has gone to 37.6C. We need to check it in an hour, but if it reaches 38C we need to rock up to ED. I am getting this info up while I am waiting for some time to pass in case we head into the hospital soon. I have no doubt I have a chest infection and need antibiotics of some description. Sooner would be better than later I assume as my body is no longer able to fight any infection on its own. I don’t want a repeat of last year when I caught pneumonia after my stint in hospital. I can’t remember a time when I have felt worse.

We’ll see how things go.
