@Joolzmac

On to day 3 today have some rash but not too bad! Feel I could run a marathon but my feet or legs say no!!

Stumbler

@Stumbler

@joolzmac , don't run that marathon as it's the steroids which are giving you this temporary boost. And, running with a drip attached could be problematic. :wink:

@TracyD

Joolzmac

@Joolzmac

@lilbird

Hi @joolzmac Sorry to hear you've been having such a tough time of it but sounds like things are improving for you now, let's hope that's a trend that just keeps going 😉

Joolzmac

@Joolzmac

Thanks hopefully get home midweek I have had great care and Drs have been thorough with tests everytime my temp was high. More physio then home I feel I am getting steadier and stronger everyday. Being positive and taking my time to enjoy the calmness before I return home to the madness 😂😂
