Drip-drip....

Hi you all, here is the next part of the catastrophe report.
Just a short one, as typing is painful as my elbow is very inflamed. My fever returned in full swing on Monday, and after a painful night I went to the doc again. I have had strange sort of hives on my arms and legs, which we had taken to be mosquito bites. Well, after another examination the doc said it is a condition known as ‘erythema nodosum’, a very painful inflammation – probably set off by a strep-throat. It will take some weeks to clear up completely; I get an iv-drip at the doc’s each day with cortisone and pain-killers, and I hope this will help. More exams are planned for next week, so I will keep you informed. I have the feeling that the sh*t really has hit the fan this time!


Sorry I can’t get round to visiting to your blogs just now; will catch up as soon as I can. Take care of yourselves, and thanks for not forgetting me!


Poor old speckled cow!
