Back home...

If you follow my social media accounts you will probably be aware that I've not been very well recently. Since the summer I've been back and forth to the doctors and piled up with antibiotics and steroids but instead of improving I seem to have been getting progressively worse.

It almost been a running joke, that yes, I've got another chest infection...

It got to the point where I wasn't sleeping , and was coughing so much I couldn't keep food down so was feeling rather weak.

 After spending a weekend looking after my 5 year old son who was also unwell, I forced myself out of bed on Tuesday morning and into work, however i only made it as far as the lift and as the doors opened on my floor, I fainted.

I have to say this was probably one of the most embarrassing experiences of my life! But everyone in work was great and my lovely boss got me to A&E to be checked out. I was expecting to back home by lunchtime but some test results weren't what they were expecting and two days later I was still in hospital.

It felt like torture, I have only ever been in hospital overnight to have my babies, this was so different and with Ben being poorly himself I didn't want him coming in and getting worse. But I missed my monsters so much, all I could think about was getting home to them. Eventually last night I was able to convince the Dr's that sitting in a hospital bed was doing me no good and I was allowed out but do have to return as an outpatient for further tests. 

So I am now home, very tired and still weak but I have had endless hugs and kisses from my two monsters which has to e the best medicine in the world!!

I wanted to say thank you to everyone for all the well wishes they really kept me going while I was going slightly stir crazy stirring at four white walls. And I'm sorry for the delays in any posts / reviews that I have promised, they will be up as soon as I can manage, please bear with me though as my priority over the next few days is catching up on my missed hugs and kisses from Ben and Elizabeth.
