My wife just had 1.5 liters drained off in her first pleural effusion....she's a new woman.
She's been dx 14 months ago.... don't know what this means. Some sites say this is another nail.... and a big one. Others say... " aw... don't worry bout it."
Guess we will get answrs to orrow.
I wzs not there for her scans today not expecting news. Then when they gae her te bad news of thhe effusion and embolism, she held eself togethet till the car. I called and think I have made it crystal clear that barring a 911 med emergency.... I am to be called wit bad news. I will tell er. I know her scheduler, her thoughts, and thought processes.... and in days of technology, no time would have been lost teling me first. My wife decided that my insciistance is not enough, that to tomorrrow, the staf will hear to call me first. I get it, and ask questions and break it down to ways she can u derstand... that's what couples do.
