Yesterday morning I woke up at 5am in the worst pain. My body shivered, every joint ached, head pounded and my heart was pumping fast. I stumbled to the bathroom to find myself lying on the freezing cold tiles. If I stood up I knew I would be sick. hours later I was the same, only this time vomiting. My heart rate wouldn’t go below 100. I noticed a rash on my leg. I called the dr and he told me to get to the hospital. By the time I got there I had a high fever. I had to wait to be seen in a consultant room as the staff were afraid I had covid-19. It turns out I was very sick. Cellulitis had progressed to sepsis. I’m still in hospital now and will likely be here for another 5-6 days.

Currently living in Hong Kong, I am originally from Liverpool, UK. In December 2019 my world was turned upside down when I found out I had Melanoma. It wasn't until after my 40th birthday in January 2020 that I discovered the melanoma had got into my lymph nodes putting me at stage 3. This blog was set up to document my journey. It is an honest and open account of everything we are going through as a family. We are currently taking one day at a time and trying to keep things as normal as possible. xx View all posts by Adele Hughes
