kitt,
I went to the doctor at a local urgent care he said I had walking pneumonia. :(
He put me on triple z-pak(?) methapredisone, and a decadron shot.
I was running a fever (99.8). My normal temp is 97.1.

I fell asleep for three hours and woke up in a drenching sweat.

I'm going to take some cough syrup and maybe fall back asleep.

Hi Everyone!
Kitt, I'm glad to hear that your husband's surgery has gone well and that he's happy with his progress. I'm sure the removal of the NG tube was time for celebration. I'm so glad that the hospital has wi-fi so you can use the internet while you're there. My son has a young friend (probably about 27 or 28) with Crohn's. After many surgeries and continued unbearable symptoms, he just had his entire colon removed. He's a great kid, and I feel so badly that he's going through this at such a young age. Please tell your husband I'm sending him lots of healing wishes! Sorry I haven't been around the forum much. I try to get on whenever I have a chance. I've been really sick, and haven't had the energy to even look at the computer.

Joy, do you think germs can carry from Georgia to Central New York? We had our Winter Recess this past week, and I spent the week SICK, SICK, SICK. I'm really lucky that I have a wonderful family doctor who knows me like no other. When I described my symptoms to him, he told me I needed to be seen. I was at our townhouse, about an hour from home, so we made an appointment and headed to the doctor's office.

He was very concerned, and not only gave me a Z-Pac (my stomach can only handle amoxicillin and Z-Pac) as well as a shot of Rocephin. He was concerned with the intensity and speed that the infection (bronchitis and sinusitis) came on. (He did a chest X-ray with no pneumonia) I had to go back DAILY to have my lungs checked and receive an additional Rocephin shot.

His aggressive approach really helped me a lot. I still don't feel great, but my sinuses are pretty well cleared--only clear mucous, and my lungs have very little (very light) mucous, although I still have tightness and wheezing--that'll probably last a while. I'm so glad I have a doc like him. I'm planning on keeping him when we move, and will try to find a doc up here who's willing to consult with him. Hope I find someone who's willing to do that. I've got a very sensitive stomach, and lots of strange, quirky, chronic problems. Nobody knows me like my family doc does. Wish he'd move with me!

Barb,
How did you steam your eye? I'm assuming you were cooking...I guess it's easy enough to do. Just lift a lid and look in, open a bag of microwave popcorn,, etc. Hope it heals quickly. Hope all is well with you and your family!

Bill,
How's the new job? I haven't read the whole thread, but I think I read you're still dealing with pain. I hope you find relief soon.

Sorry I haven't been around much. I've been super busy, tired, and very sick. I'll try to do better! I've missed everyone!
Take care,
Denise

Hey Denise,

Good to hear from you but sorry to read of your illness and hope the nasty "bug" takes a flying leap off of a tall building and looks for someone else to pick on. It is great to have a physician you can count on and have a good relationship with. The school year is getting shorter all the time :-) .

My hubby had a little set back but is still making progress slow but sure. He has been fortunate to do as well as he does. This is his 4th surgery but he has lots of small intestine left so no short bowel syndrome concerns and when he heals hopefully he will be back at doing what he loves..................being out in the woods or working with the dogs at our daughters.

Our youngest granddaughter is coming today at noon to see G-pa. She is 6 years old so I know that will lift my hubby's spirits.

Thinking of you and everyone here in the forum.

Take care and many loving hugs to you,

Kitt

Denise, think this bug just likes teachers right now. This is my second time having pneumonia in a year. I had it back in November last year.
I'm beginning to feel better on my second day of stronger meds.
I'm going to be out tomorrow and go back on Tuesday.
I like my new doctor because he's treating my cholesterol and hypothyroidism better, but my old doctor treats my bronchitis more aggressive than he does. I'm pulled many ways about the two. I wish I had one who would do both.

Kitt, grandkids are always good at lifting spirits. I'll continue to pray for you and your family. My eye is continuing to heal. The eye drops for itching are working pretty good. When it starts to itch inbetween I use the numbing drops and moiturizing drops. Just what I needed more medications to keep track of. Lol.

Joy I am worried about you. I hope you get it under control before it affects your asthma. You certainly don't need a run in with that again.

Denise, yes I was cooking a stir fry in the electric fry pain which I don't usually do so wasn't expecting all the steam and I wasn't even that close to it. My eye is still red and I'm sure the itching is from the yellow drops they used in the ER and then the next day at the eye doctor's office to look at it. The itching is as bad as it was on both my hands after surgery from the yellow stuff they cleaned it with. I should just have them write on my chart allergic to any thing yellow! Lol. I hope your feeling better soon. I am getting over a second sinus infection after going on 5 hours of sleep a night because I couldn't sleep past 3am for some reason. I should have went and saw my doc sooner about it. He understands as he himself has sleeping problems. I'm so glad you have a doctor that understands you and works with you. I have an awesome PCP. We had a talk again this Friday when I went in to see him and he is behind me on my decision to not take statins because of my stomach. He said he doesn't care if the heart doctor likes it or not. He actually listens to me instead of just saying take this and do that and I'll see you in 3 months like the specialists I see do to me. He also gives me choices and we discuss what is best for me with all my problems taken into consideration. A PCP like that is priceless.

Bill, soft ball already. Is it indoors or are they playing out in the snow. Brrrrrrrrrrrr. We still have snow on the ground up by us and more to come in the next 2 days. Have a great day every one and hope your all feeling better soon. Barb

Joy maybe once he realizes how sick you get if not treated right away with stronger meds he'll do a better job of getting on top of it right away. My allergy doctor freaked out when I saw him at the end of December and had another sinus infection. He put me on strong meds for 3 weeks so it wouldn't go into my lungs and affect my asthma like it had in September when I was hospitalized for 5 days. How long have you had your new doctor? Try talking to him about this too. I know that doesn't always help but it's worth a try any way. Barb

I told him this time about all the things I need everytime I get like this. I told him I need my Advair increased for two weeks, antibiotics, two steroid shots, medrol dose pack, hydromet cough syrup, nubulizer, and rescue inhaler. He said, "Well, maybe we don't need all of those this time." and gave me the cough syrup, antibiotics, and afrin.
I went to the clinic Saturday feeling worse that is ran by my old doctor. He gave me the steriod shots, nubulizer, rescue inhaler, medrol pack and doubled my antibiotics. I'm feeling better already.

Joy I hate it when doctors don't listen to the patient. It's like hey we've lived in this body for so many years and knows what works and doesn't work when we have chronic problems. Is there any way to get the report to him on your visit to the clinic showing him what had to be done to get you better. That might help. I am going to look into getting a report on my cholesterol from my old doc showing it up at 280 so I can show my heart doc how much it has really come down. I don't know what my LDL used to be just my highest over all cholesterol. I am hoping this gets them off my back about my LDL which is down to a healthy 112. I feel the damage to my artery was from my years of very unhealthy diet and predinizone for months at a time for my UC I had so bad for 12 years. What is Medrol? Well time for me to go take a nap as I worked the over night last night and need my sleep to get over my infection. This is my 3rd sinus infection since September. We are quite the bunch around here with all these infections. I'm glad your feeling better. Barb

Medrol is the brand name of methypredisone. That steriod pack where they start you out on six the first day and slowly reduce you down to zero by day seven. I've done many of them over the years. They always make me crave sweets and my face swells up some, but it knocks the infections out of my lungs and sinuses quick.

Hi Kitt,
Sorry to hear your husband had a setback, but glad to hear he continues to progress. It's so hard to have a chronic illness that is so intense. He's lucky to have you and your loving support. Your knowledge of medicine is certainly helpful--especially in the hospital. You've got to watch out for his best interests. I hope he continues to get better and heals quickly. I'll bet he (and you) enjoyed having your little granddaughter visit! Have a great week and try to get some rest yourself. You've got to take care of yourself, so you can be there for him!

Joy,
Glad to hear you're getting better. I'm worried about dealing with doctors when we move. It's hard to change, but I'm not afraid to ask questions and take some control of my own treatment. I definitely need to find docs who will listen to me, and answer my questions.
Hope you have a good week at school. Don't overdo it. I'm staying home a few days, depending on how I feel.

Barb,
Your eye accident has made me more aware of the danger of steam! My asthma is really hanging on. My infection is better and the mucous has subsided, leaving me with some wheezing and coughing. I still feel exhausted. Hope you're feeling well. You sound great!

Hi Bill and everyone else...I'm pooped, and need to get some rest. This infection has really wiped me out.
Have a great week!
Denise

Denise, sorry your still feeling so bad. Get as much sleep as you can. I am doing so much better since I am able to sleep again. My eye is getting much better too. I just have some itching still and use the drops for that. I am extra careful around the stove now. Always open the lid so it's tilted away from you!

Joy, I guess I have had that more than once myself but the docs usually give me a bottle of pills. The doc in North Carolina gave me that pack though. I was on the 4th day of a day tapered dose when I ended up in the hospital in TN. I was so used to the tapered dose working so well for my asthma that it was a shock when it didn't. I hope you continue to get better and can get your new doctor to listen to you.

Kitt, I hope your hubby is continuing to get better.

Bill hope all is well with you. Well time to crawl in my nice warm bed for a good nights sleep. Barb

I went back to work today like an idiot. I felt like I needed to be there, because today was a manditory meeting on insurance for the year. I was barely functioning, but I made it through.
I'm almost out of cough syrup though. :(

Joy,

I am sorry you had to go into work but I understand there are some things we feel we have to do. Glad to hear you made it through the day and get your cough syrup refilled.

As for me........my hubby had a huge set back and now is back on more tubes, IVs and we did not get to take him home yesterday. We are looking at up to 1 to 2 weeks for him to get back to being ready to go home.

Hope each of you have a wonderful Wednesday.

Hugs to all,

Kitt

Sorry to hear about Hubby, Kitt. Gentle hugs to you both.
I made it through the day without taking any cough syrup. I did need a cough drop though.
One more day of steriods and three more of antibiotics.
I can't wait for this coughing to get out of here!

Kitt,
So sorry to hear that your husband had a setback. I know how hard it is to be in the hospital--both as a patient and a loving wife. I hope things straighten out soon, and he starts feeling better. I'm sure it's very tricky--getting things to heal correctly so that his GI tract can get back to work. I'm sending you both many healing and loving thoughts. Hang in there. Try to get some rest, Kitt. You won't be able to be there for your husband unless you're healthy and rested. Are you at a hospital near home? When he sleeps, you should try to get some rest. Do they have recliners in his room?
Take care, Kitt. We're here cheering for your husband's speedy recovery. yeah yeah yeah yeah

Joy,
Don't be a hero! Try to get out of school quickly in the afternoon, so you can get home and rest. I'm going back tomorrow. I gave myself a few extra days to get feeling better. By the afternoon, I'm whooped. When your lungs are involved, it definitely takes a lot out of you.


Barb,
I'm feeling better, finally. I'm glad to hear that your eye is better. Wow. You've made me more aware of the danger of steam. Hopefully I won't make that mistake. We're back at our apartment after staying up at our new townhome for about 10 days. We love it there. Oh well...at the end of June we'll be moving up there permanently. Can't wait...but I'm not going to wish my life away. I want to enjoy every moment until then. It's hard to leave and come back to our apartment, though. I'm still pretty pooped from the lung infection...it takes a long time to get your strength back after that. Wish me luck back in the classroom tomorrow. I'll be ready for a nap when I get home! We're supposed to get 6-14 inches of snow tomorrow and tomorrow night, so we might just get a snow day on Friday.

Have a great night!
Denise

Kitt-
Sorry to hear about the Hubby's setback. I know all too well the frustrations of not being able to leave that dang place. Tell him I am pulling for him to get out of there as soon as possible. Those tubes and such are no fun! As Denise said, make sure to keep yourself rested and sane. He's gonna need you in as tip top shape as you can be.

Take care,
Bill

Ps. Sorry I haven't been around much. Things have been crazy with the ribs and leg nerve issues along with working with 2 softball teams.

Thanks all.  Another nasty day for hubby.  Got up and was dizzy and became nauseated while sitting in the chair.  He looks worse today then yesterday.  Yesterday he was just sooooooo tired.  Ugh.  Today he looks really lousy. 

Waiting for the Doctor.

Hugs to all,

Kitt

Hi Kitt,
I wish there were something we could do for you from a distance! Just know that our thoughts and prayers are with you. I hope things turn around for him soon, and he starts getting his strength and health back. I'm sure (with your knowledge and supervision) that he's getting the best of care. We all want to rush healing, but it takes its own sweet time.
We're here for you, Kitt! Hang in there.
Sending gentle hugs,
Denise

Kitt, I am keeping you and your hubby in my prayers. I'm sure he will take a turn for the better any time now. Make sure you take care of yourself too. We're here for you whenever you need us.

Bill glad to hear your busy. Sorry to hear about your continuing rib pain and now your legs. I'll keep you in my prayers. I hope you find a solution soon to the pain issues.

Denise, it took me 2 months to get over my lung infection completely last Sept/Oct. Rest is the best thing for getting your strength back. I went for injections yesterday in my tailbone and back muscles. The tailbone and shoulder hurt the most. When I went in to get the infections my doctor said what's this I hear about you steaming your eye. I told him I was a walking disaster. He thought that was rather funny. Oh well as I always say better to laugh about things than cry about it. Well time for me to get to my workout. I've lost 12 pounds so far since the beginning of January. Take care and get lots of rest.

Kitt,
Patience. It takes time to heal after such major surgery--I know I'm not telling you anything you don't already know. It's so hard to feel helpless when you want to do something to make him better. It's a waiting game, and that can be so frustrating. I hope he starts feeling better soon. We're with you in spirit. Tell your husband we've got him in our thoughts and prayers and are wishing him a speedy recovery! yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah

Barb,
It's hard to wait for lungs to heal. They take their own sweet time. I feel so much better, but I can't believe how worn out I still am. We lucked out today--another snow day. Another day to rest up! We'll go up to our townhouse for the weekend a little earlier...as soon as the roads are clear, we'll be heading out. I'd rather do my resting there! Congrats on your weight loss and dedication to exercise! Hope your injections work well for you. Feel well!

Bill,
Softball season! It's hard to believe that it's already starting. A good sign...spring is on it's way. I hope your pain is getting under control and that you're feeling better.

Joy,
Hope you're feeling better. I know how draining school can be. Be sure to rest, rest, rest when you're home!

Hi everyone else! Hope all is well.
Take care,

Bill, that is great! That will be a nice get a way. You sure do deserve it. I'll be praying your health issues give you a break too and that your team wins. Go team Go!

Denise, I'm glad your getting some much needed rest. That's the best thing for you. My shoulder and tailbone are still hurting from the shots but my lower back hasn't felt this good in years. I wish I would have had this doc right after my accident. He works for the pain clinic and my hand surgeon sent me to him for my tailbone last summer. It's interesting how things work out sometimes. Well time to go work out. Have to keep that weight going down. Drive careful and have a restful weekend.

Joy I hope your continuing to recover.

Kitt, I hope your hubby is getting closer to going home soon. Barb

I'm still coughing some but most of the gunk is gone. :)
I've got two more doses of anitibiotics and I'll be done with the meds.

You'll be flying over my home on your way to the sunshine state. The weather is nice by the end of March. It's in the 50s now but the wind is cold. I want to head down there one day to see Walt's World. ;)
