To All Who Read My Blog by P.S. Joshi (Suzanne)
I’ve really enjoyed blogging, especially writing the little flash fiction stories. Now I have a problem. Last Monday, on the 21st of October, 2019, the doctor came to my flat, took a look at my right leg and told me she wanted me in the hospital for tests and to stay for treatment. I was admitted the next day, Tuesday the 22nd I went and ended up spending seven days being pumped full of antibiotics. My right foot was swollen and there was an area of red running halfway up my leg. When the report came back I understood the seriousness of the problem when the word “septic” was used. In other words, I could have lost my leg.
I’m now home, but directions were given for me to rest and sleep with my feet above my heart. I can spend very little time sitting at the computer or I was told the swelling could come back and the same problem. No way do I want to repeat that hospital stay and the meds. I was just fortunate I made it in time and they could heal me. I’d advise anyone with a problem like mine, not to wait but to get medical advice as soon as possible.
I’m also posting this on Rochelle’s blog and I want all there to know how much I enjoyed writing the stories and posting them there. All the best to Rochelle and all the writers. Suzanne Joshi
