So my nurse was out today. I have been aproved for another 60days of nursing care. Mostly they just check my bp and lungs and heart and give me a b12  shot.
Physical therapist was here too. He was teaching me some things about breathing exercises.
He said the left side of my body is weaker then the right. Which I find odd because I'm left handed and use that side more often. I have had to increase my o2 from 2lt. to 3.5lt. I can't seem to walk more then 10 or 15 feet without ever muscle in my arms and legs aching like crazy. My reg. aid has been on vacation for over a week and won't be back until monday. I have another person that comes out and does a good job but she doesn't spend the same amount of time. The place is a wreck. I'm doing good to cook a meal. I say a meal when I mean a chicken breast with onion and green pepper grilled into it. She was here last thursday and will be back 4 pm tomorrow. I can make a miss in that amount of time. I had to get the trash out but that's about it. I don't know about you but sometimes I just don't see the point. If the food wasn't so terrible I think Id go live in a nursing home until I ...............skull . I just can't get past the tuna surprise.

Thanks Lynnwood, I'm just hurtin and I'm tired. I do like tuna but I'm not even possitive that's what it was. Plus when every single thing you eat has been through a blender it leaves much to be desired.
Hey I was thinking about you earlier. What happened with you having to get re certified or whatever they are trying to do with your money?

Thanks for thinking of me, Carol. It's all still in the works. Saw my rheumy today and he's decided he can't support a lupus dx. He's done absolutely nothing in the 3 yrs I've seen him, he ignores symptoms and hasn't changed anything from what my previous dr had done. (Prev dr was great, solid lupus dx, great treatment, listened well, then died on me!) Don't know what will happen next, but am sure sick & tired of worrying about it.

I'm sorry you have a lousy rheumy, Lynnwoodl You've really been through it.

And you, my dear Carol, sound extremely depressed, and with good reason. I'll be gone for a few days but I'll call when I get back and we'll have a long chat. I know things must be awful for you right now because you aren't your funny self in your posts. I'll put on my thinking cap and see if I can come up with something to make you feel better. I have a good idea even as I write this. I'll be in touch.

Love ya, and so do a lot of other people here. We depend on your funny lines. And don't you forget that!
