It's been a while since I actually blogged about my health since my downfall back in March!! Since then, over April, I've been on a course of Ciprofloxacin, Itraconozole and Prednisolone. Although, that didn't really help out with my cough!
Last Tuesday, I had another hospital appointment for my monthly check up. I saw Dr. Ho who I told I had been waking up most nights coughing, so he suggested I try nebulised Bramitob which is similar to IV Tobramycin but a nebulised form. So I will be on that for one month instead of my Promxin and then back on the Promixin for a month so I alternate it.
As I couldn't remember if I had had Bramitob in the past, I had to have a test dose to see if I had any reactions.
Jo, the physiotherapist, sorted out my test dose which took me about 15 minutes to nebulise as the hospital don't have INEBs so you have to inhale it from the oxygen on the wall. Luckily I didn't have any reactions to it so Dr. Ho prescribed me on it.
I'm currently waiting for the new mouthpiece and equipment to put on my INEB so that I can do the Bramitob in as they have different pieces which work differently according to which medication you are nebulising. So until then I will carry on with the Promixin.
Aswell as, I'm not sure if I mentioned it in previous posts, but my dad and his work colleagues took part in the Great Strides 65 challenge on Saturday where they walked 65 kilometres (40.5 miles) all in aid of the Cystic Fibrosis Trust. They managed to raise an amazing grand total of £2,841!!! Well done to team MPS (Mail Publisher Solutions) you did great!
Here are some photographs of the walk and the local Basingstoke newspaper that me and dad were in!

For those of you who know me well enough, will know I'm Tinie Tempah's biggest fan! Back in 2012 Shona sent off some forms to Starlight Children's Foundation to apply for me to have a wish. "Starlight brightens the lives of seriously ill and terminally ill children by wish granting and also by providing fun, entertainment, laughter and distraction for children in every children's hospital ward and hospice throughout the United Kingdom." When Starlight got back to us, I had to the chance to send off a list of my top three wishes and Starlight would see what they could do to make one of those wishes come true. So ofcourse I wished to meet my idol; Tinie Tempah.
Victoria, a wish granter, got back to us soon after saying that she had recieved my wish list but it could take some time to grant as celebrity wishes are difficult where the celebs are so busy. But I was willing to wait! So many months have passed since then as it was back in around January last year.
I was saying to mum around the end of April that it had been such a long time since we sent off my wish list. The same week, we had a phonecall from Victoria saying Tinie had agreed to go ahead with meeting me! How weird considering we had just been speaking about it less than a week before we recieved the phonecall. The following Friday mum had another phonecalll and email from Victoria saying that I would be meeting Tinie on the 8th of May in a hotel in London. Just two weeks after the phonecall. HOW EXCITING!!!
Over the two weeks mum and Victoria spoke about what else I would want to do on the day so Victoria said she would arrange a limo to come and pick the five of us up (Me, Mum, Dad, Abbi and George) and then I chose to go to the Rain Forest Cafe after meeting Tinie which Starlight also payed for.
I was counting down the days to meet Tinie everyday as it got closer because I was so excited. I was also scared and nervous about what I'd actually speak to Tinie about and at the fact I was actually going to be meeting him!
The day arrived...
