Weekend

3 hours ago, Jamesinashby said:

Not in this hospital. The wards don't have a TV. I will follow the Spurs match on the BBC Sports App on my tablet. 

I asked for an antihistamine pill hours ago and am still waiting. The itching is driving me mad - it's worse han a nagging pain. The mobile phones don't work properly in this ward, they crackle and break up. My missus got so mad she had a go at me and ended the call. I think I must be 'duty scapegoat' today - every going wrong  and every mishap around me seems to be landing on my shoulders. All it needs is a typical Spursy loss, and I'll tell them to shove the antihistamines up their arse and bring me a suicide pill instead - even that will go wrong and they'll give it to some poor soul in another ward. 

I can see all my posts today being negative moans.  LOL 

Sorry James always catching up on these late I'm running around like a loony trying to keep the kids entertained in it's my twins 11th birthday this weekend. Me old Mum at 89 still has a bed sir that she rents out that we basically trying help her with the money get flowing for her. So I've got  18 years of tenants crap to deal with.

Anyway more importantly back to you mate hopefully the concerns will be on the ball for You by Tuesday it's always a ghost town in any hospital regards to the doctors and consultants just hope that you've got those Carry On Matron nurses looking after you mate.

You got a similar sense of humour to me, but always stay smiley and happy no matter how they are to you my father had a really wicked sense of humour like me but he sometimes went too far and upset people my mum's a bit the same she's really to the point.

Alicia not in a South London Ghetto hospital like my mum was apparently of people sneaking into the wards trying to nick handbags, so keep your safe:1579412966_emo1:

The boys will dedicate their win to you later mate and ice 3 or 4 nil please...coyms

I have just been reminded that Monday is a Bank Holiday so it will be Tuesday before things return to normal. 

Too late for me as I will have died by boredom by then. A Spursy loss and I'll probably decide to 'pop off' during the night. That gives me the last laugh and I will enjoy that looking down from heaven. 

I'm sorry to read of all your harassment. Having lost your job and struggling to find work, your predicament is far worse than mine. Hopefully when the majority of restrictions are lifted in the middle of June, the economy will quite rapidly improve and this burden will be lifted from your shoulders.

I'm feeling a bit knackered and breathless despite not being too active today, and the chest pains are lingering in the background, so I shall sign off and get into bed having drunk the Horlicks they have just brought me. I think the unexpected excitement has brought it on. 

I shall go to bed a happy chappy thanks to the lads great display. Keep this up and we don't need to look for a new manager. 

Sweet dreams everyone.

A drop of Jameson in that Horlicks James,will take all your aches away pal.

Sadly, today is starting off as a bad day. Chest pains are back, aching muscles, breathlessness and dizziness - they sent a doctor to see me who is happy that I won't croak it. 

Sorry, folks, you have got to put up with my drivel for a bit longer. But you, if you don't mind, please keep posting as it helps me chatting with all mates on here.

After 3 days (the weekend and Bank Holiday Monday) when the hospital has virtually been closed, I have actually been seen by a doctor!!! 

I am on the list for my Echo CT Scan but they don't know when that will be. Until I have had it, they don't know exactly what the problem is or what the treatment will be. A bit like following Spurs this season - absolutely in the dark as to knowing the final outcome until the final whistle goes. 

I know I am a tad under the weather, they know this too, but nobody knows when anything will be done about it!!

I think I'm going to sink a gallon of virtual ale in our virtual pub and get virtually well and truly pissed to match me feeling pissed off.

 You are 'on the list' for a scan with no fixed date.Isn't that rather better than hospital staff around your bed like a nest of wasps and monitoring your every move ?. I'm not for a moment suggesting your condition is not a cause for concern mate but it does show you are not regarded as being in immediate danger which must surely be a relief to you. I know you are worried and desperate to get home but just try and 'ride the storm'.

We are all here for your posts and chats so do not hesitate to stay in contact. There's loads to discuss at the moment what with Mourinho and the Spurs manager vacancy. Stay focused my friend and try to see the hospital's somewhat laid back attitude towards you as a positive sign. :thumb:

I have just read that booster jabs will be available by September.

The implication suggested by this is we should all relax and not worry if a new fast spreading, virulent variant started  to sweep through the country.

I think the Baldrick cunning plan was to hide that is some 5 months since the vaccination programme started and only around two thirds have been vaccinated with their first jab thus far. Also, only about one third having received received both jabs. 

For once I am happy to be an old fart, as at least I am fairly high up the priority list for the booster. Sadly, for you young whippersnappers, it is not necessarily a reason to whoop with joy.

It would appear they intend combining them with the flu vaccine appointments. Over here in the Republic Of Ireland the EU has pre-ordered millions of Pfizer vaccines ready for 2022 and 2023 so it may well be that's the one Bren and I will receive next once we've had our second Astra Zeneca jab at the end of July. Let's hope that soon things progress so we can simply take a prescribed pill once/twice a year to beat this thing.

I am now off for the highlight of the afternoon - a snooze to catch up on some sleep before my painful injection in my stomach which apparently stops me getting blood clots. 

I'll catch up with you all this evening.

Not a too bad day, at least the chest pains were bearable. Sadly, although I have been added to the list for my Echo CT Scan, there is a waiting list and they can't give me an idea of when I will have get it. I am praying it will be before the weekend otherwise I'll just be hanging around over Saturday and Sunday bored stupid. Very dispiriting. 

I'm off to bed now hoping it won't be too rowdy. 

Good night all.

Let's hope  they produce in  pill form I would have thought that could be adjusted so much easier and distributed so much better. Vaccination pills will B just like taking vitamins eventually.

Morning folks. 

Sadly, the day is not starting well.

I am aching all over and feeling as weak as a kitten. I am having to breathe through my mouth and moving from my bed to my chair has made me dizzy and very breathless. 

Just sitting here and trying to post is absolutely knackering. I'm going to have to take a break - I haven't had my breakfast yet, hopefully that will give me some energy.

Save your strength for tonight mate. You have to support Villarreal later remember.

Maybe this latest episode will get you that scan a bit quicker. Enjoy your breakfast and we'll chat later. Just try to relax and stay as calm as possible. Take care....

I have had a bowl of cornflakes, a slice of toast and jam, a yoghurt and a banana for breakfast. I am feeing better - no longer weak and the muscle pains have gone. The chest pains remain despite having had an aspirin over an hour ago as does the breathlessness. 

I shall be there supporting Villarreal come what may. 

Having spent 2 days sitting and lying around, instead of feeling better for it, I have slowly felt worse. I have taken the bull by the horns and taken a 10 minute walk back and forth along the long corridor outside of the ward - I calculated it as around 1000 yards. My breathlessness was not too bad, only having to breathe through my mouth. 

I am being positive - onwards and upwards.

I hope your strength returns soon, James!

I have changed jobs and am out of the loop now, but I was previously hearing that boosters would be available in the fall. Although the current vaccines may not be as effective against some of the variants, a good deal of protection remains. So as it was explained to us, it may not prevent a person from having any symptoms at all but it still should be fairly effective at preventing serious illness.

Things are moving as I had my scan. I mentioned it seemed the same as an echocardiogram. He said it was. I said I thought I was getting an echo CT Scan. He said there was no such thing

When I had an echocardiogram last December the cardiologist said he could see nothing wrong and would send me for a Cardio CT Scan. I get sent to this heart specialist hospital who say there is no such thing and give me another echocardiogram!!! Doh! 

I'm struggling to have faith in these heart specialists. 

Anyway, hopefully I will find out tomorrow if they have found anything and if it is treatable. 

Sadly, it is looking likely I will spend another weekend in hospital, that means missing another Spurs game!!

I am going to be in over the weekend - a boring 2 days to look forward to. 

I don't know how to feel about the results from my echocardiogram. They were very good saying there is no problem with my heart. In other words they are stumped. On Monday I possibly am going to have yet another CT Scan, but there is a waiting list so it is not certain. I am also going to have my arteries and veins checked for blockages.

The cardiologist says he wants to carry out more tests on my lungs as well. He admits to being baffled when all the tests imply I don't have any of the normal symptoms associated with heart and lung problems. He has called it Covid related heart problems and told me, as yet, they have too little information on it. 

He also said he was determined to solve this enigma and that I will not be sent home while I am so ill with breathlessness, dizziness and chest points. It is more than a tad demoralising as there isn't any real hope being offered to me that where they are confident of finding a solution.

Totally understand your frustrations mate but nice to know they cannot see any heart problems. You have the medical world baffled :thumb:. If it does turn out to be a blockage then I'm sure everyone on here is willing to chip in and get Dyno-rod to call in the hospital and sort you out. You would think if it was a blockage though you would be suffering from symptoms all the while but yours seem intermittent. Doctor Borodin would go more for the 'Long Covid' diagnosis and the hitherto unknown problems such a condition brings.

Shame you will miss the Leeds match but I know if I try and give you instructions to download a dodgy stream on your mobile it would just end in tears and a possible relapse. Let's hope you manage to follow the match on the radio.

They seem determined to sort you out rather than just pack you off home and that's a positive approach. Stay calm and try to enjoy the weekend. Hopefully one of the specialists there will eventually manage to crack the Enigma Code.
