Good morning, I pray that everyone is feeling and doing good!
I went to my doctors appointment. I have a lot of swelling again. When I put my sunglasses on, it was a tight fit, because my face is swollen. I haven't seen this doctor for about a few months, so he didn't know all of the update on my health. So when I told him, he right away looked at my feet and legs. He pushed in on my shins and you can make little dents on them. Well, you can all over my body. He told me to take 2 Lasix's instead of 1 a day, they are 40 mg's! Good Lord! I'll be on the pot all day long! lol :o)~ He also is having me take another sleep test. I don't know when yet. They will call me. I have been doing things at night. When I wake up, through the night, I'm either taking my oxygen off, throwing pillows, and sitting on the side of my bed! Now thats dangerous for me! I really need to keep my potasium up.
When I came home, my daughter told ne that my nurse called and I needed to call her back. She was on a deadline to put my assesment in the computer.
When she came, she checked my temp. and my blood pressure. I have a small temp. it was 99.8. She told me that she needed me to stand up so she can take my blood pressure. It was doing it again, like a few months ago! gggrrr! Then I had to get weighed. She couldn't believe how fast all of this happens. My swelling. My weight is (I can't believe I'm telling this) 198! My normal weight is 174. It feels like I'm carrying bags of potatoes on my whole body. I wish I knew how to explain it better. I'm worse this morning. Bummer. I'm out of breath just sitting here. I've been using my inhaler.
Today, my physical therapist is coming. I already know that it's going to hurt. I use mind over matter. It helps. After that, knowone is suppose to come over. :o) My sinuses are giving me a time. I didn't feel like this yesterday. That figures! :o)
I'm still having a time dealing/coping with the new news. I know that things will get better, meaning that I will be able to 'except' it. I'm still grieving. And confused about the swelling and CHF. Maybe I'm not reading right.
I'm going to rest today of course. Then just take it from there. I know I want to play a few games on Pogo. :o)
I also want to thank you for signing my guest book! :o) It cheered me up! :o)
Thank all of you for standing by me and taking the time to comment! :o)
Everything that I'm having problems with are in God's hands! I know that He only gives you what He thinks we can handle. But I also wish He didn't trust me so much! :o) Kidding! :o) I know I have what I do....there is a meaning. I'll figure it out! :o)
Have a great day!
