Asthma Is Bad

Hi, Gosh it's been a long time since my last post. I have to try and find some more time to write and visit. I feel terrible that I haven't been by to visit you all.

Gosh just when I think I am better I get worse. I have been really sick for the last 4 days. I have been coughing, wheezing, and extremely tired and sweating. So to day I saw my pulmonary Dr. today and he said the sweating I am having which I was also doing in his office was from my body trying to struggle to breathe. I was put in the chamber and given a pulmonary function test. He said that my breathing stats are down to 68% (from 100%) he wanted to put me in the hospital and said I am very blocked up, wheezing badly. I know I really should have gone, but the thought of sitting in the hospital stinks. I asked him if I could stay home and I promised to stay in bed and not do anything. I want to be there for my kids and Alan too. So he sent me home and wanted me to rest and take my treatments with the stipulation that I have till Friday to improve. If I am no better, I have to go in and be put on IV medications to help my lungs clear up. Otherwise I can damage my lungs further. I am just so sick of this!! I hope that one day they can find a cure for this. I came home from the doctor and was so upset I went right to bed and just slept from 4:30 to almost 10pm.

I have another Dr. appointment again tomorrow morning with my primary Dr. so she can hear my lungs and go over the new meds the pulmonologist gave me yesterday. I have so much coming up the next couple of weeks. I have been getting ready for my duaghter Brittany's 1st Holy Communion which is on May 5th. I am having a party for her but thankfully it will be in a resturant because there is no way I would of been able to get my house together the way I have been feeling. This Friday we also have an appointment to get a trial of her hair done with here veil and then go and have communion pictures done. I will post a picture of her dress tomorrow. It is really beautiful.

Well I am off to go and watch some TV and catch up on some shows I missed when I was sleeping earlier.
