Good news on the phone front in that Hubby’s results are in and there is no cause for concern. He has now been checked out top to bottom, and apart from expected things that come with age (I could say OLD age as he is now officially a pensioner), we can breathe a sigh of relief. Nottingham got Nil Points for aftercare as they should have arranged a barium meal which is now in the pipeline here and Hubby will receive a date in due course. I hope there will be some time beforehand as his body is badly in need of rest.
His INR had dropped rather than spiked, so he is on a high warfarin dose until Thursday when he sees the nurse again. We both think he will be having at least two tests every week to try and get it back under control, but the tummy jabs have basically f***ked up his system which could now take months to recover.
I had a good phone call with the doc today about my concerns over the Pfizer booster jab.
She said that it was the government’s decision that only the Pfizer booster is available here, but she was very sympathetic to my anxiety, confusion, and need for clarity.
Basically though it’s my call as there are pros and cons on both sides to consider.
My priority at the moment is to get Hubby stable, though his main concern is for me.
The media are reporting bad reactions but friends and neighbours who have had the booster have experienced a little discomfort for a few days, but nothing else.
Luckily there is no ‘best before’ date on our invitations for the booster, so we have some time. One thing is certain though, just now we are both very run down and tired so not in the best state to have it.
