When I was admitted on Tuesday, they did some chest x-rays. Some more were taken yesterday and there's no change in the pneumonia or the blood clots. You'd think after that many days of heavy antibiotics and blood thinner that there'd be something. We still haven't got the results from the Bronchoscopy they did one Wednesday so my guess is that they have to culture and grow them for a few days.
Sleep is pretty much catch it when you can and not just because of the staff. Sometimes I can barely stay awake, others I just can't sleep thanks to some not very good thoughts. Eating, one of my favorite activities, is an arduous task thanks to no appetite. All I could manage this morning was yogurt and boost and it was hard enough forcing that down. Don't know what to do about lunch and dinner. I'm only bothering because I know that I have to eat to get better.
Having Lulu here with me is beneficial not only for my spirit but my body as well. Taking her out for walks helps the blood flow and helps increase my wind. Of course by time I get back I'm huffing and puffing like the big bad wolf!
Thank you all so very much for the prayers, thoughts and kind words. Reading them really elevates my mood and puts a smile on my face such that the nurses wonder what I'm up to. I'll keep you informed.
