Alex is back in hospital

Just a quick update to say that Alex is back in hospital.

She has been in Derriford since Friday. Early last week, we thought she was coming down with flu and that some of the symptoms of that were achy muscles and joints. As the week progressed, the achiness grew but the flu symptoms didn't. Also, Alex started to lose mobility and strength in her hands. We took it to our GP, who sent us to hospital and they admitted Alex.

Alex is well within herself, responding to pain medication and stable. The doctors have been doing lots and lots of tests, with more to do tommorow, but at the moment there is no definitive diagnosis. So Alex will be staying in for the time being for observation and more tests.
