Recovery not as quick as l thought. Still got bad cough, sore throat and ears.

Well, the saga continues. I didn't end up in hospital but rehydrated at home. Turns out the Eye and Ear hospital was only guessing the ailment was viral, as it involved conjunctivitis, of which there is a particularly nastly viral strain going around. After considerable effort, l finally got someone to prescribe antibiotics (they didn't want to waste them on a viral illness) and the effect was almost instant (l could almost feel them work) and l am now much improved and eating small but regular meals. I was not contagious after all.
The upside is l thought l was a bit fat before (after looking at photos of me in the finish chute), but after 7 days of no food, seem to have shed those excess pounds.

Went into the Eye and Ear Hospital this morning to get my conjunctivitis sorted, as it underpins (or rather oversees) all my other ailment. I was still feeling lousy and not up to driving or going on train, so sister organised a 'car'. A huge shiny black BMW series 7, with window shades, rolled up. I felt like the Prime Minister, or at least the Mafia, travelling into town. I was also hoping the hospital was going to keep me, but but not to be and l was sent home with a new pile of pills and sprays in a far less solibrious model.

Still feeling bloody terrible. 6 days no eat no sleep, and constant congestion. Starting to get a bit anxious.
