Blake, you could go ahead and send me that extra $50 from the photo album ;) lol jk
So, where to start .? Oh, I guess from the beginning.
I think I told you about the surgery I had last month? Everything was okay after that (except feeling a lot of pain on the incision site .not to mention feeling like a piece of paper with the staples they placed on the incision). But, my sister kindly offered to help out by using her staple remover she purchased at an office supply store .in which I departed to the comfort of my parents immediately. Lol jk
I have been in and out of ERs/hospitals since my last post. I had to be on antibiotics for my infection on my incision (thats one thing I dont want to relive). It doesnt seem to be getting worse, so thats good.
But, the meds Im on wiped out my good bacteria so Im catching everything under the sky .no wait bed? No, moon ..or is it sun? ;)
Anyway, Ive been having fevers and so theyre tackling this now so it wont get any worse. I seemed to have aggravated the incision due to my throwing up (pardon me if thats more than you needed to know, lol).
But, as long as they re-hydrate me with IV fluids and antibiotics, I dont have to be admitted (b/c the treatment works quickly).
My PM is now adjusted (since the surgery threw it out of whack). But, the cardiac meds + the infections=asthma flare ups. I had to go to get treated right away last week b/c I had an asthma attack. Its usually not that bad and is easily fixed with a breathing treatment, but I just needed a bit more help I guess.
I plan to talk with my doc ..hey, that rhymes! talk doc
Where was I? Oh yes, I plan to ask my EP what beta blockers have as little effect on asthma patients. But I was wondering if any of you have some similar experience and what meds youre on. That way, I can mention it to him.
Wow, this is a long winded post isnt it? Lucky you. Haha
Oh, but one more important thing: thank you all so much for your prayers/concerns. Its amazing how this site is so strong in every aspect. Not many other health forum or clubs have this type of camaraderie, and I cherish that always.
P.S. Did you hear about the optometrist who fell into a lens grinder and made a spectacle of himself?
