You can call me TC

Oh dear, so that's not the problem then. Has the nurse been round yet?

The triage nurse? Not until the antibiotics are finished. The District nurse came yesterday for INR blood test, they've rung me this morning with the result, it's normal at 2.3. District nurses don't listen to chests or I'd have left her a note requesting that.

Hm, major update following:

On Friday morning I found a note from the morning carer saying she'd given Mum the last of the antibiotic and disposed of the bottle. I rang the GP surgery to request a visit from the triage nurse, speaking to the receptionist. I then got a call back from a GP (not Mum's) who wanted to know what was going on from the start of the cough. I told him and he asked me to take Mum to the Diana hospital (smiley - groan I was dreading this happening as I have no transport now) and straight to the x-ray department, he would send an urgent request through for a chest x-ray. The first person I rang for help was available and Ian's daughter Caroline picked us up and dropped us off, I wheeled Mum through to the x-ray dept and there was only about 4 in front of us so we were ready to leave about half an hour later and Caroline had us back at Mum's in time for her regular Friday bathtime then lunch. I've to phone the Doctor's surgery this Friday for the x-ray results. She was still coughing on Saturday. I'm worried there'll be a shadow and it might be lung cancersmiley - erm

I'm walking to Mum's today as there's no smiley - busthanks to the Bank Holiday smiley - shrug but at least it's not raining. Happy Towel Day!smiley - towel
