Ok, my day yesterday. < huge sigh>
I had an appointment to see my pulmanry doctor, he's also the one that takes care of my sleep and the tests. I do like this doctor. When he came in the room, he had asked me what happened?! I told him that my whole body has been swollen for 1 week and 3 days now! The pain is starting to really hurt. My sleep test is the same and I had asked him about this water gain. It's from the congestive heart failure and it needs to be taken care of AQAP. So he told me to go to the ER and tell them that he told me to come and hospitalize me over night for observations. I did that. And hey....I'm still swollen...and I'm at home! Imagine that!
To me, it was very hot out. I had pretty bad shortness of breath. I had my walker and my cane with me. As I made it in, the woman at the desk came around to help me sit down. She took my vitals and a EKG. I have no idea what it showed because she tore the paper from the middle of the paper and ran it back to the ER. Then she came back for me.
Their is a doctor there that I won't let him to even touch me or my family! He has no idea as to what he is doing! No kidding. Thankfully, he wasn't there. But I did get the doctor thats just like him! gggrrr And I couldn't ask for another doctor because he was the only one there. ggggrrrr! They did all of the hook ups like the EKG etc... They gave me a small I.V. to give me Lasix. I had told him that it doesn't work for me. They brought in a side commode as well. They gave me 80 mg's. I only went 2 times. I sort of proved it. For the time I was there. He told me that he was going to admit me if I didn't unrinate properly. I guess I urinated properly.
After that, I was to get dressed and leave. I kept asking him about my swellining. He said to just put my feet up! You've got to be kidding me!!! It's my whole body!
I was still out of breath and extremely hot. I did have my little oxegyn tank with me. I went to McDonald's and got a large High C! I downed it before I got home!
....and yea, my BP was still high, like when I take it here myself. And, he did tell me that I need to make an appointment with my doctor becouse I'm just alittle above diabtie's!
When I got home, which was around 3:30, I peeled my clothes of, and got into a cool nighty. I had the ac on 68 and my fan blowing on me. I was so exausted...and still am. I guess I passed out, because I don't remember ever laying down to sleep. I was watching those court shows.
Dh woke me up and It was kinda like a dream. I felt sort of weird. But I do feel better. Nena brought my grandbabies over!
So I woke up to that! :o) Now thats the best medicine! :o) I still haven't been able to see their new home yet. With this swelling, my feet hurt so badly. She seen why.
Well....that about wraps up my day yesterday. And this is the short version too! All I know is, I "DID"feel as if I was in the arms of Jesus...I know I couldn't have walked all that way to the entrance of the ER without help!
I pray that everyone is doing fine and make this day to remember! :o)
