    Just thought I’d post a little message to you all why I’ve only been popping in and out of the forum lately.
    I’ve not been great since my little cat Meg died in January it broke my heart and I miss her terribly. I’ve lost 7 pets over the years but it doesn’t get any easier:(
    I’ve been really down then about 3 weeks ago I was rushed into hospital with chest pains and had to stay in. They’re still not sure what caused it really so I’ve got to have a heart scan in a couple weeks then see a cardiologist. A few days after being admitted and I came home I came down with a really bad chest infection and an horrendous cough, had an X-ray and 2 lots of antibiotics as it’s only now just clearing up slowly. My Dr wanted to send me back into hospital to be put on a drip and intravenous antibiotics as well as check for blood clot which terrified me. I didn’t go in though I just wanted to see if the antibiotics I had would start to clear it which eventually started to help. I’ve been off work about 3 weeks or so and just gone back this Monday.
    Hopefully in the next couple months I hope to try and pick up my family history again as I’ve not done anything for about 12-18 months now.
    So onwards and upwards as they say but obviously at a slower pace xxxx

    I hope you soon feel better... getting out in the sunshine should help chase those nasty bugs away. We will all be here when you feel up to joining us again on a more regular basis. {-(^^)-}

    Don't overdo it. It takes time to recover from a bad chest infection. Hope your scan is ok. Get well soon
