So - onto today. Mum had a follow up appointment at the doctors. She is feeling better in herself but her leg is still very painful and swollen. The doctor looked and then thought that it could be a blood clot - cue an afternoon appointment at the hospital for a blood test and scan. Fortunately it wasn't a clot - just very serious Cellulitus where the antibiotics hadn't touched it - mum now needs far stronger ones - 5 tablets three times a day and three at bedtime! I must say, however, that Barnstaple hospital need to be congratulated for their speed of service and bedside manners. Our initial appointment was for 1:40 and we were waiting for the medication at 3pm having had all the test results and seeing the doctor twice.
So I am now back home, getting ready to travel home tomorrow and starting to pack the car. How on earth am I going to get all of this into the car tomorrow? ( There is also a bag of coal, a dog cage and a Hoover to fit in! )
