Well, what a horrid three weeks I've had! I actually managed to get out and about today - only to Sainsbury's to do a bit of shopping but it's the first time I've been out of the house since the end of January. I now feel as if I belong to the human race and not on some leper colony! I never knew that you could have such a bad reaction to penicillin! The OH's mum sent me a newspaper article about the hidden dangers of everyday drugs which we assume are harmless. It mainly deals with antibiotics - did you know that one side effect can be tendinitis and tendon rupture! As one consultant stated in the article "There's been a perception that antibiotics are a bit like vitamins in that it won't do the patient any harm to take them, even if it's not absolutely certain they do have an infection." It bothers me why the dentist actually prescribed the amoxicillin. I went to see him as I'd chipped my wisdom tooth on a nut and only mentioned that another wisdom tooth was causing me some pain - after 20 odd years it's still trying to push through! There was no abscess! As the chipped tooth is not causing me any problem and the other tooth is now fine I'm going to give the dentists a wide berth for a few months!
The daffs were from the OH and Miss. K. They have been very good looking after the invalid!
The rose is from a beautiful bunch of flowers from friends - the bouquet is gorgeous!
A card from Miss. K.
So as a treat for being nice to the patient - a heart necklace and ring from Sainsbury's!
If you want the best seat in the house - find the cat! Ruby lying amongst the cushions on the sofa!
It's the end of half term and back to school tomorrow. The children are off on a trip - so it's a day for packed lunches! "Can I have cake?" Miss. K. said. "Only if you help me make it!" She did!
And sneaked a taste when she thought I wasn't looking!
Thanks ever so much for your comments on my last few posts! I'm now well on the mend and normal blogging will resume!
Be back soon!
