Much easier today

The experts were right - today was much easier then yesterday.  I did develop a pretty good rash in the night, another common reaction to one of the drugs.  Piccy of said rash attached before it reached its worst when all the spots merged!  It is much better now as I get regular doses of Piriton.  All intravenous treatment finished by 6pm today, somewhat better than 3am for yesterday's lot.

One interesting side effect is to the steroids I am being given - I'm constantly hungry! So far I have put on weight since being here!  Oh well, enjoy it while I can.

So all quiet today. Looking forward to the weekend visitors.


  1. Ew. Itchy? All the pipes in your arm look scary :S
    Still no custard?
    See you tomorrow then! :)

  2. Hi again
    That rash looks familiar! It's very similar to how I have reacted to antibiotics and was very itchy until antihistamines kicked in.
    How are you feeling, bored yet? Good time to write your Christmas cards?
    What's with the custard? Robin has only just deiscovered he likes custard after refusing the lumpy stuff at junior school.
    How did the treatment go today?
    Take care
