Being admitted

Well I am going in the clinker tomorrow. FEV1 is down to 26% and I am so SOB I feel like I am strangling. Dr H said it sounds like a severe asthma attack since I benefit SO much from the Albuterol. So who knows. But looks like at least a week in lock up.

I am going to talk to them about a possible port placement. I don't wanna deal with another PICC. I'm dreading it. And as much as this admission sucks, it adds to my case that I should be on SSDI :)

Gonna go pack my bags and enjoy dinner at my dads tonight!!!!



  1. Sounds like you need this! That's a big drop for you, even if it is an asthma attack. I hope you bounce back pronto.

    You were just in not that long ago though. Sorry you dropped Amy. :(

  2. Amy,
    So sorry to hear your going in lock up, but, does sound like you need it with those drops.
    Hang in there and will be praying for a speedy recovery!

  3. Sorry you're being admitted :( I Hope they are able to clear things up quickly and do whatever you need to feel better!! Definitely will be thinking of you! If I lived closer I'd make you some yummy food or something. :) Hope things get better soon!!


  4. New, here, new at this... Hope you are feeling better soon and the rest gives you some benefit! (even if it is the SSDI, which can be a blessing in itself.) Get those stats back up girly!

    I have a friend who uses combivent instead of albuterol... just a thought.

  5. Port, Port, Port! I love mine! I hope you feel better soon.

  6. So sorry you numbers fell that much :(

    Hope they can your numbers up quickly and you back home soon.

  7. So sorry you are having a hospital stay and feeling SOB.. That must be a terrible feeling. May something wonderful happen while your in lock up, and hopefully you will get AMAZING rest and feel much much better... Marcy

  8. Sorry you are headed back to Club Dread. I'm on Day 9 (or 10?) and it's all running together for me. Take care and hopefully your #'s will jump back up soon.

    I'm totally on the "I. HATE. ASTHMA." bandwagon - whenever I am feeling asthma-y, my #'s look wonky and not where they should be.


  9. BLAH GET WELL SOON LOVE!! *big hugs*

  10. Oh Amy, sorry you're feeling so lousy. I do hope the doctors get things sorted out while you're in there. It seems that if it is an asthma component they should be able to come up with a good & reliable treatment plan for that!! Then the tackling of the lung bugs will go a lot smoother and be more effective. I'm sending along some positive vibes for ya! {{{Hugs}}} ~Juliet

  11. Aw, heck...TOO SOON!!! But I know you probably need the boost!!! I hope you feel better soon and you can BREATHE much easier!!! I'll be praying for you! And hopefully they will grant you a port placement!!
