Just what the Doctor ordered...

As you will know if you've been following me for a while, I don't have the best of health. In fact, I'm nearly always ill. This is something my Doctors and I are trying to get to the bottom of, and hopefully will get resolved soon.

As I'd been ill non-stop since the beginning of November, we decided to take a family holiday to relax and recharge in Ischia. For those of you that have never been to the small island of Ischia, it's beautiful. The views are breath-taking, and the natural hot waters created by the volcano are amazing. Just what the Doctor ordered...

I already had a nasty cough before we left, but I was hoping the fresh, clean air would do wonders and help get me healthy again. I was wrong. I had fever, coughing, and vomiting the whole time. When we got back home I had a fever of over 39° and fainted. Things were looking bad (coughing up blood is never a good sign) and so off to the hospital it was... I have pneumonia. 

Luckily the antibiotics are working and I'm improving nicely. Hubby and the kids are doing a great job of looking after me, and I'm feeling hopeful that my x-rays at the end of the week will come back clean this time. Fingers crossed!
