Hi Lynn, Acquiesce, Chart, and Donna:
Thanks ladies for your well wishes. I'm sorry that I didn't post sooner, but I've felt so bad and quite honestly I've just wanted to hide for a few days. I'm gonna try to make this short as I really do feel crummy.
Pulmonary Rehab went fine and I only walked and biked for 15 minutes. Then on to my Dr. she said the cellulitis was still there and changed antibiotics. Which, I'm now having major stomach issues from it. I spend most of my time not knowing if I can eat or not. Today has been a bowl of raisin bran, and 2 steamed dumplings.
My MRI shows that I have a torn rotator cuff in my right shoulder and I need to see the orthopedic surgeon to determine if I will require surgery or not. My blood pressure is dangerously low all of a sudden and she thinks that's what's causing me to stagger when I first get up and walk. I'm also dropping everything I pick up with my hands. More so in my right vs the left. That could be related to my shoulder issues. She's hoping so anyway.
However, when she examined me she noted that when I followed her finger with my eyes all the way to side, my eyes quiver. She said that this isn't normal and the worst case could lesion on my brain. She wants to see me again on the 8th to see how my BP is, if my eyes are still doing shakes, and to check infection.
I contacted my dermatologist and he wants to go ahead with biopsy anyway on Tuesday morning. Said that we need the results to help in case I'm having a major flare up starting. Yesterday, I was really starting to think the antibiotics weren't working, but today I believe my leg looks a bit better.
I woke up feeling weak and shaky. I'm pale with blue lips, I'm really short of breath and my heart is beating fast. The sweating starts the minute I get up and move as does the difficulty with breathing. Last Tuesday when I saw my oncologist I was borderline in needing a blood transfusion. I've been through this enough to know the symptoms I'm currently having is my need for 2 units of blood. Will call the oncologist first thing in the AM.
Chart, to answer your question my likes college just fine. This year she's a senior and will graduate in May. She's already talking about
getting a Master's or maybe applying to Law School. Will have to wait and see. I'm sorry that you've not been sleeping and are hurting so bad. I pray that your labs will match up soon, so that you can get the treatment you need.
Donna, you hit it on the nail. Hubby is worried about
the "life long" commitment of a pet, he didn't come right say I'm stuck with the pet when you die, but I think that is his thought process. So, no hugs and kisses for him
Okay, hubby has placed my shower chair in the shower and is ready to assist me in a shower. I hope you all are doing better than I am and I'll let you know how things are going as I'm able to. Have a good evening and take care everyone.
