Poorly Pickle

No time to blog recently as I have a poorly Pickle to deal with. She has had a temperature of up to 39.4 degrees since Thursday night.
A visit to the GP informed us she had a viral upper respiratory infection (?)
A visit to Suffolk Doctors on call last night resulted in some antibiotics which 10% of people allergic to penicillin are also allergic to.
Pickle is allergic to Penicillin and another type of antibiotic, so this does not bode well.
We found it amazing that in the whole of the West Suffolk Hospital this was the best they could offer. Surely such an allergy is not that rare that they should stock more than 2 types of antibiotic.

So far so good though, no troubling signs of allergy.
Fingers crossed!
