First of all, I just want to say Thank You to everyone who wished me Happy Birthday on July 25th.
I apologize for not replying to anyone.
I was taken ill on my birthday and got admitted into hospital.
I scratched my arm on brambles whilst gardening several weeks ago and dirt/soil entered my blood stream causing a pretty nasty infection in my lymph nodes etc..
I came home today and will be back to normal in a few days.
Good to be home!
I have had the results on a sample of gunk they took from the infection.
It was some type of invasive streptococcus...a really nasty one that kills about 20% of those who get it.
Fortunately for me it took up residence in my lymph nodes/glands under my arm and not in my brain or lungs.
Well, I get to live and fight another day!
