Seriously scary and reassuring.
Take care and best wishes to Linda.
I'm still undergoing tests after my major pneumonia 2 years ago.
They were limited in what they could do for me as I'm dangerously allergic to ABX and auto-reject most other useful meds, although I do think it was going a bit too far when in spite of collapsed lung & wearing an oxygen mask, they changed the name above my bed to "Willie Nelson" & made me sing - "...didn't sound much like Willie, more like Johnnie Cash........the week before he died," was the Consultant's opinion!
Technically, all they could do was monitor and test, but the level of care and support from 5 Consultants & Nurses and HCAs I had for 2 weeks was phenominal.
All this while they were working long hours, including double shifts.
In a private or insurance-based service, I would not have been here to repeat my gratitude.
