Diagnosis Murder

Well, it's been murder getting one, at any rate. The relevant blood tests came back last night, the results indicating that she doesn't have a pulmonary embolism after all. That's the good news.

The less good news is that my wife's now been filed under Medical Mystery. The hospital's biggest names have lined up to poke and prod her. They've even vanished to have one of those meetings you see on TV medical dramas, where the bizarre case is discussed and metaphorical beards are stroked until conclusions are reached. But while her status does mean she's getting plenty of attention, there are still no answers.

So my wife's now been moved out of A&E and is on a ward for observation. The pain's still there, and we've just got to wait and see what happens.

Thanks to everyone who commented on here or emailed - much appreciated. I'll be back later with updates.
