Travelsonabike2 England This Day 25th-August-2018

This week’s Travelsonabike2, on this day post, comes from the 25th-August-2018. Disappointingly this week, I’m not away on my bike. I’m in St Richards Hospital, trying to get my head around what has happened to me over the past month. It was the first time I was able to write anything.

Saturday 25th August. St Richard’s Hospital Chichester.

Now I don’t know what everybody knows or doesn’t! I don’t know too much myself. So please forgive me if I repeat everything you already know. I got admitted into St Richard’s Hospital in excruciating pain on the 22nd of July and had no idea what was causing it.

After spending a few days in hospital being passed from ward to ward, the ugly truth of what was wrong with me reared its head! I had severe sepsis shock, and the organs in my body were rapidly starting to shut down! The doctors then put me into an induced coma on a respirator for a week. Not that I remember any of that; it’s just what I’ve been told. Apparently, I’m lucky to still be here! But that’s all in the past, and I obviously survived.

I’ve now got months of recovery to look forward to both in hospital and at home. So it could be a while before I’m back on the bike, but never fear, I will return at some point. It’s just I’m finding everything hard to do at the moment. And please don’t think I’m ignoring you; if you’ve sent me a message, I will reply.
