Infection, virus and rejection

Ok so I'm finally back home after a week in London and an admission. I had a ct and a bronch, It came back that the ct was a bit fuzzy on the bottom and my bloods showed the metanumo virus, nothing big but it can cause an auto immuno reaction, so basically possible rejection, which isn't a big deal in the first ear and can happen a bit, so I'm lucky iv only just got a little bit. I also had a bit of infection lurking around. I was started on methyl pred industrial dose, immuno globins and an Iv antibiotic.

I have to say I was going crazy in there, I hated not being near home and at times wasn't allowed out because of lowered immune system with the methyl pred.

Yesterday I was told I would be going then I got told my white cell count had dropped and had to have my blood re done, they came back fine and we rushed out the doors as fast as we could.

Harefield is a great hospital, but when you feel perfectly fine it grates on you quite a bit.

Anyway, I'm back, my Christmas decorations are up and I'm trying to get some lessons in place, also trying to get back into my fitness regime, I have been slacking so I'm off to the gym today.

Any way a somewhat brief blog but that's everything summed up really
