Probably worth the drive to The Churchill then. They were fantastic, the duty doctor, Anna, did everything she could to get me through and home, but all her efforts were beaten by Pharmacy once again! I don't know why it is so difficult for a doctor to get drugs from a pharmacist. The penicillin I needed is available on the internet with 24 hour delivery. But Anna couldn't get it out of The Churchill and couldn't risk letting me go without it. So Sharon went home about 1:15am and I stayed the night. I then had to wait until 1:15 pm for Pharmacy to dispense some penicillin. Like I said, I can buy it on the internet with 24 hour delivery. Temperature had dropped back to normal by the morning, antibiotics were doing their job.
We got out of The Churchill by 1:30pm and hit the A34, heading Dorset. Some people were surprised to hear I was going to Dorset, but it was important to me, important for Sharon and LIFE MUST GO ON! I have no idea how much life I have left, I am not about to put things on hold just because I have had a bit of a temperature. I am sure I will need this level of determination at some point in the future, so I am building it up now.
Also, I love driving and travelling. Even in the Suzuki with the A34 and A303 full of Sunday drivers, it was fun. The concentration required to drive well fills the conscious part of my brain. The unconscious seems to process all the other stuff that is going on. I always feel better after a drive. Feeling well enough to drive was a milestone in the first chemo regime. Luckily, so far this regime, I haven't fell so unwell I can't drive. Lets hope it stays like that. I really fancy a day in a Morgan 3 Wheeler.
