Thanks, Laurie, I am feeling a bit better each day. Physical therapy three days a week is really helping a lot to get both my strength and breath back up to par.

The onward part is easy, the upwards not so much, lol. I'm still having to use the chairlift when I need to go upstairs and it's just so hard to stay awake. I need to talk to the onc on Tuesday about starting to wean off of the oxygen. I'm on 2 liters now and even when off the oxy, my % level is in the 90s, but after a couple of hours my lips start to turn blue so there's something going on with how I'm processing the oxygen.

Sorry you aren't were you want to be right now, but maybe you should give it a little more time. It's good that you are going to contact your doctor though, maybe they can give you some insight as to why the oxygen isn't keeping your levels up. Hope you get to feeling better soon and let us know what the doctor says.

a call to your doctor tomorrow is in order. I hate to see you go the entire weekend with the symptoms you're describing.

I go in every other day for magnesium infusions, so I'll be seeing at least a nurse today who can pass info along to the doc.

Hey Doc, thinking about you here in Canada. Keep up the spirit that is half the work.
Us praying and rooting for you is the other half.
One day at a time. Rome was not build overnight either. Before you know it you are back on the motor.
hugs, Marjan
