A quick post tonight. Herself has had to go into hospital.
The trouble with Multiple Sclerosis is that the symptoms of common infections become much exaggerated. For example, both she and I caught a chesty cold. You know the type – not much snot but loads of phlegm. My infection cleared up, but her’s has lingered on. Further, she might also have a urinary infection. Thus, both combined hit her quite hard. The admission is more in the nature of a precaution, so we expect her back home in a few days. What precipitated the definite decision to call the medics was that she needs to drink a lot of fluids because she has to have a catheter, but her tummy had swollen. How expect her to drink lots of fluid when her tummy is swollen? The two ideas are contradictory.
But, as I said, the admittance is precautionary and we hope to have her back home in a couple of days.
