Well I am delighted to be able to say that I went to the doctors today and the diagnosis is that actually it is a bad infection!
I cannot begin to say how relieved I am about this as in all honesty I was kind of worried.
I called my doctor first thing this morning and she fitted me in this afternoon and so I walked to town this afternoon in among all the snow fall. To be honest I am very keen to work on my weight and so the walk was good, although the specialist at the hospital did tell me to take things very carefully so I probably should have gotten a lift.
Either way I am delighted in the diagnosis and I just hope the meds they have given me will clear it up soon. I am also very grateful for all the prayer support that I was given.
