St Richard’s Hospital 24th-July-2018

Garry McGivern is still in St Richard’s Hospital Chichester on Tuesday 24th-July-2018. They got me standing again today, all by upper body strength and not my legs! They also got me to have a go at walking. It was so painful, and they could see it! I couldn’t move my left leg at all! So they gave up, thankfully!

I think it was after that they decided to send me for a CT scan, which never really showed anything up!

After that scan, I was moved to the Emergency floor, which was a lot cooler and also had windows! That last ward had no windows at all and no air!

They’re now on about an MRI scan!

I’m also on nil by mouth from midnight tonight!

Things Are Not Looking Good

I’ve had a temperature on and off since I arrived in A&E at the weekend! Today it was 39°! I’m constantly sweating, the bed in the morning was soaked through! And had to be changed every morning!

Apologies if these posts don’t make a lot of sense! I’m pretty spaced out most times, what with my fever and the extra morphine! They’ve been giving me!

  1. Frustrating when you’re clearly not well and the medical experts just don’t know what is causing the problem. High temp, 39* and consistently high temps can lead to seizures. IV antibiotics should bring that down. Thinking of you.

    1. Luckily for me they did work out what was wrong with me and were able to sort it out!
      Hope you’re keeping well.

    1. I wish was able but, not this time unfortunately! A drink would go down really well, but I’m still on nil by mouth!

  2. I wish you that he cause of all your troubles will be found soon. After a speedy recovery.
    My only trouble (sweating) was climbing Col du Grand Colombier in Rhone.Alps ,France at 32 C and sunshine,

    1. I know how that feels when you’re ploughing up some hill! Annoying as it is, I’d take that sweating over this one, even just laying here it’s pouring from me!
