IV Time

IV time we go, IV time we go, hi ho the dairy-o IV time we go

Yep I am almost 98% sure when I go back to see Dr D she will want to put me in and I think I shall agree.  My SOB-ness is ridiculous.  I wheeze so bad I think the girl next to me in class tonight heard me during the "lull" in the movie.  I've been walking MUCH slower than I normally do.  And I cough up goo almost all the time.  Add in some streaking and yeah its time!

My next appointment isn't until April 27th but I am calling tomorrow to see if I can move it up some.  Ironically I was supposed to go in tomorrow but thought it was too soon since she wanted to see me in 2 months and I had scheduled it for 1.

I orginally changed it because, yes, it was only a month, but also because I was trying to wait till classes were over before going in.  And I wanted to get my new laptop first too.  With the new laptop I can get homework done while in there.  But now I don't want to wait another month or so before getting this taken care of.  I'll just make sure I can schedule to go in on a Wednesday and be home on the following Monday so I don't miss any class time.

I have also been exercising daily doing Jillian Michaels no more trouble zones.  However, I can only do the 5 minute warm up and then I am exhausted and done.  5 minutes of straight cardio kicks my ass and I don't even do the jumping jacks!  I do use my O2.  The first few times I didn't just to see and my HR was hitting over 170!  So now it stays around 155-165.  With my O2 around 92%.  So not too bad.

One thing I MUST ask Dr D about is a port.  I will NOT go through that horror of a placement again like I did around Thanksgiving!!!

So I shall keep everyone posted.


  1. Now that I have looked over my calendar I really need to decide. P is on call next weekend the 15-18th, E is off of school from the 18-22nd, Easter is the 24th. The only available weekend is this one and its too late. Maybe I should keep my appointment...what to do what to do....

    CF is just NOT fitting into my plans LOL

  2. Hi Amy - I know they can schedule the picc line in one day - my doctor has done it. (not the same day mind you - but by tomorrow p,m. they could do it if you push). Don't think they can get you a port that soon though!!

    And I also have tried the biggest loser "boot camp" and had to stop twice during the WARMUP!! Never got past that and it's just gathering dust now!!


  3. This DVD, along with 30 Day Shred and Boost Metabolism, is hard. But after every workout I feel AMAZING. Yes, I'm exhausted, sweaty, and my muscles are aching and trembling, but I feel energized and sharper mentally. I exercise five days a week, alternating workout videos, and take the weekends "off", during which I find I now have more energy to do everything from working in the garden to running around theme parks. I'm actually sleeping better too.
