Can you all please send some prayers and good wishes to our dad?
He’s ill! He has a severe chest infection! He went to the doctor and the doctor gave him a course of steroids, and an antibiotic to take.
The doctor also said he has low iron, and needs to have his bloods checked again, to see how low it actually is now, and so he made an apt for april 16th to have his bloods done on that date.
Also he is going to be having a bone density scan soon as he has brittle bone and its getting worse, he’s had some flare ups recently.
So any and all prayers and good thoughts wishes good vibes are appreciated!
Hi everyone. A quick update on moms health.
she went to the doctor last night. And as she thought, she has a severe chest infection. The doctor said he wouldnt give her steroids for now, but he did give her an antibiotic, penicillin, and he told her to keep doing her nebuliser and to take extra puffs of her ventolin if she needs to do that.
He told her if she isnt feeling right in a few days, to come back and they’d prescribe the steroids for her.
She had an ok night, she told me she managed to sleep, but she kept waking up due to not being able to breathe very well. This morning she still isnt feeling too good, but she got up, and she even went to the bank with me, which I told her that she shouldnt as she really should be resting as much as she can!
She’s in bed now, resting for an hour or two.
Thank you all so much for all of the kind thoughts and prayers. Your all so sweet to think of my mom and to do that for us all.
If you could continue to send good thoughts prayers wishes to her for a quick recovery that would be great.
I’d really appreciate it. I’m going volunteering this afternoon as I normally do, but once I am home I will make sure mom is ok. God, her phone just started ringing, you’d think they’d let her rest and stop annoying her.
My mom is very ill. She has a bad chest infection. But she also has COPD on top of that. She’s on her way to the emergency out of hours doctor as I write this.
If you pray please pray for her. Or send good vibes, thoughts etc if you are able to. I’d really appreciate it.
I think she’ll need steroids and an antibiotic to clear it up. She’s very short of breath and she’s coughing up a lot too.
So if you can, I’d appreciate any good thoughts for her for a quick recovery.
so mom just got out of the doctors office. i had told her to call me once she was out and so she did.
the doctor put her on an antibiotic and some steroids. she has a chest infection that is aggravating her COPD.
she has to take the steroids for 5 days, she is to take 8 of them each day. i told her she is probably not going to be able to sleep while she is taking them,they have a habit of making you wired.
she asked about going on a nebuliser but the doctor said she would have to get her own gp to authorise that. the doctor she saw today was just an emergency on call doctor.
has anyone taken or is taking steroids for chest related issues? do they give you side effects? I’d love to hear from anyone who has experience of taking them.
