I went to a friends house wenesday night and stay until this afternoon. I had a doctors appt: at 11:15. She took me off of my BP meds she said I was doing well without it and we would just keep and eye on it. It was like 120 over 80. She decreased my steroids from 20. mg to 15. and than she wants to go down to 10 in 2 weeks. Of course she ordered labs I have been feeling pretty anemic lately. Usually they can barely get blood but today I bled like crazy. Odd for me. She put me on lasix because I'm retaining alot of fluids. She thinks I still have a lung infection but she said my breath sounds are doing well and my heart sounds good. Praise the lord! I think I have about
10 lbs of water weight gain so I am going to try to stay away from all salt and I'm going to be drinking more water. I'm gonna try to eat more salads and stuff. The closest place I can get my meds filled is 4 blocks from here and they aren't
open in this little town on the weekends.
My friend was with me and she noticed that my hands were shaking terribly all the time I was at her house. She mentioned it to the doctor and she said they see that a lot with people that don't get enough oxygen. I really hate the tremmors. Oh than she reminded me I need to get another ultrasound done on my left breast. I told her they are so lumpy anyway that I can tell if anything changed or not. I noticed they have been aching lately. I don't know why. I know pain isn't really a symptom of breast cancer or anything. Maybe I'm actually getting bigger boobs???????
Well I think i'm gonna go to bed. I'm pretty tired. It will be nice to sleep in my own bed again.
love to all I will try to catch up with what everyone has been doing hopfully tomorrow.
lots of love and prayers
