Today was clinic. It was bittersweet to say the least. My weight is up to 119, I’m a heifer lol), but my lung function went down. My FEV1 is 38% and my FVC is 66%. I was 45% FEV1 on October 28th. That’s down 7% in less than 2
This is where the bittersweetness comes in to play. Because of this my doctor thinks it is a good idea to not work anymore. I told him I want to stop work and go on short term then long term while I wait for SSDI to kick in. I had thought maybe he would have to exaggerate a little to get me on it; turns out no exaggeration needed. If I were to continue on as is I would be back on IVs in a
I told him about
All in all it was a good visit. I got my H1N1 shot and a prescription for 7% saline and regular .9% saline since THEY DISCONTINUED 3%!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I can not by any means tolerate 7%. My airways spasm like a madman on 7%. So I will have to mix the 7% and .9% to make 4% roughly.
I was going to talk to him about getting the glucose tolerance test but I am going to wait until I move to do that. No point in me spending up to $1500 (deductible) on the test when I can get it much much cheaper when I move. So that is on my to do list. Now all I need to do is start packing and get moving haha!!!
December 23rd will be my last day of work. I know its soon but I was planning on being up in
That’s all I have for now. Happy
