Well, seeing as Jacob's a month old, it's just as well the doctor told me I could drive again – this week I've not stayed in one day!! Making up for the drama of last week –
Tues – flu type symptoms, couldn't sleep that night
Wed – worse – stayed in bed all day, getting up only to feed and change baby when he cried – shivery and feverish with a horrendous headache. TBH I probably cried more than Jacob!
Wed night – Even worse – at 10.30 I started shivering so violently I totally lost control – like I was having a fit – arms and legs flailing about, teeth chattering, couldn't stand up or speak – v scary, so by 11.45 I was in A&E at St Cross Hospital. Nightmare – to cut a long story short, after all kinds of tests and tablets and me telling a doctor there who had rather out of date ideas about things exactly what I thought, I was transferred to Walsgrave in an ambulance and stayed there overnight, rigged up to various IV drips… not that I got any sleep… Eventually sent home with antibiotics. At least in Coventry they knew their stuff – It took the doc in Rugby hours to diagnose and tell me what I already knew!!
Thursday – went to GP and he said I can drive again – woohoo! 3 weeks earlier than anticipated too!
So this week we've been out and about – off to show him off to my colleagues later today!! Hee hee. He'll probably be a grouch though, knowing my luck!
