Hi Celeste - have been away and just caught up with this - glad you are out and hope you have speedy recovery - I really believe that grief and stress can affect us and make us susceptible to having low immunity - wishing you well, jayne
Don't think it is cancer related. I think I was too busy trying to sort out my dads house - which was very dusty, overdid it and of course was also affected by the amount of bonfires we had (pretty much all of the time), trying to burn all the rubbish in his house.
They do tell me that my immune system is the same as everyone else, but yet I'm the one that gets everything from e coli to pneumonia - so I am really going to have a long convo with onc this week about my immune system. Feeling exhausted but still great relief that it isn't cancer that has spread to my lungs.
Really sorry to hear you've been in hospital celeste. Why did you get pneumonia? Is it cancer related or just f***g bad luck?
Hope you have been able to enjoy the sunshine today.
Glad to see you managed to escape but did you need to take a souvenir home as well? I would second what Linda has said and get some good old Vitamin D in the sun - whilst you can it may not last, after all this is a Bank Holiday. The fresh air will also do you good if you've been breathing hospital air for a few days! Take it easy and wishing you a speedy return to feeling good again.
Glad to hear you're out of hospital. Just take it easy and build yourself back up again, hopefully we might have a couple of days of nice weather so get yourself in the garden (i'm thinking sunlounger and good book) and soak up the vitamin D.
Only just seen this. Sorry to hear you've been so poorly Celeste. It's just one thing after another isn't it with this disease. I really hope that each day you will start to feel a bit stronger but don't push yourself. Take it steadily.Hope to see you at the next Bristol meet.
sorry to hear you're not well either Lesley.I hope you'll be feeling better soon.
Hi Celeste, so sorry you have been so poorly, really hope you start to feel stronger really soon. Being home always makes me feel better to be honest.
Celeste - know how you feel - it took me a week before i felt 25% again, its really hard after a hospital stay to build yourself up again, but there have been some good tips here, try to get out of bed a little bit more each day.
good to see that you're home, i'm just sat here wondering what piece of equipment you've come home with...the bed?
all i can say to a weak kitten is maybe try lucozade, lucozade tablets and some fortisips if you don't feel like eating too much.
just take your time and you'll be back with us soon
Hi, glad you're home - take it very easy for as long as you need to. I've picked up some sort of throat infection - keep getting very hot and don't know if it's the infection giving me a bit of a temperature or the hot flushes, lol. Luckily the temperature hasn't gone up too high at the moment, hope it stays that way.
Hi and welcome back I have missed you. I had that nasty virus thing in Feb and it has taken ages to feel more human but I am getting there and so will you! This secondary milarki is the pits.
Thanks people - got out - still with some of their medical equipment attached!, but feeling weak as a kitten. Anyone else had this? They tell me it's going to be ages before i recover - what can i do to speed this up? Secondary constraints are quite bad enough
Sending lots of love to Celeste and hope that she can get home soon. Thanks Lesley for keeping us up to date.
Take care all
Have exchanged a couple of texts again this afternoon - Celeste is being moved to the new unit in the hospital later today but isn't sure when they'll let her come home yet. She sounds in good spirits! I'll text her again tomorrow and see how's she doing.
Thanks for letting us know, Lesley. If you are in touch with Celeste, could you say that I am hoping she feels better and can get back home really soon. Sending her lots of cyber hugs
Hi Lesley - thanks for letting us know.
To Celeste - hope you are getting the best care and you are out soon, you are missed on these boards 🙂
I've read lots of your posts Celeste even though we haven't "chatted" in person. Hope you get well soon and are back here with your good advice and caring posts xxx
gosh what a shock please send her my best wishes and hope she recovers soon.
Wondered where she was?
Thank you Lesley please keep us posted.
Hi all, just had a text from Celeste to say she's in hospital with pneumonia. Haven't got any details of why and how this has happened but told her I would let everyone know. Will post more when I hear back from her as to what's happening.
