I had a pretty good day. I processed a lot of medical claims and took a nap. I didn't get any bills in the mail-so it was a great day! :)

Yay! That's good to hear, Breeze! I had a good day too - although a lot of it was spent dozing too. We must have a sandman virus around here :)D), cuz yesterday my everlovin' was falling asleep every time he turned around, and today when HE was tearing around chopping wood & mowing weeds, I was falling asleep every time I sat down! It seemed like the old days of "carb coma", when I'd be falling asleep every time I ate something - but my carb intake for today was a bowl of buttered artichoke hearts & half a thin bun made into a grilled pepper cheese sandwich (and it was YUMMY!
)

Today was an OK day. I had an appointment with my psychiatrist, I really don't care that much for him, but psychiatrists are hard to come by in Columbus. There must be a lot of crazy people here! :D

I did get to go to Arby's for dinner and it sure was good! I am kind of tired tonight, lugging that oxygen tank around really makes me tired. Can't wait to get rid of it!

Everyone have a good night! ;)

Today was an OK day, I didn't do very much. I was a little more short of breath today than usual until I noticed a large kink in my tubbing that is connected to my oxygen concentrator, the medical services company came right out and changed the tubbing and also brought out a humidifier bottle which should help with my dry nose from the oxygen. I go on Tuesday for another chest x-ray, a blood gas test and an oximetry test, I hope for some good news!

Good to hear your medical supply company responds quickly . . . that's what they get paid for, right?! :)

We had a pretty restful day, but realized we needed to go to town, having run out of eggs & avocados - perish the very thought! Those two items keep this household running! :D So about midafternoon we finally loaded up the big furball, who thinks he should go every time the car goes - and made a dash to the grocery store. Then I spent the rest of the day processing the groceries; made another big batch of hot wings, cooked a dozen eggs for deviling, and baked a big pan of link breakfast sausages to have on hand in the freezer. Also made the tuna/mac casserole that we had for supper. Now I need a maid or butler to clean up the kitchen . . .

Today was a really good day. I had more energy today than I have had in weeks. Took a really long nap. Blood glucose levels were decent all day.

Today was another good day! Getting stronger every day! Blood sugar was decent all day. I am hoping for some nice clear chest x-rays and good blood gas results tomorrow. :) I feel so much better now that I have a bubble humdifier bottle on my oxygen concentrator.

All fingers crossed for you tomorrow, Breeze. It's such a joy to hear you're getting your strength back & gaining energy. Keep on keepin' on, sweet lady!

I'm going in for a bone density test tomorrow myself, but don't expect anything out of the ordinary. As my doc says, I'm the last person he'd expect to have thinning bones - pretty obvious I'm built like a brick you-know-what . . . :rolleyes:

good news, breeze. Hope the tests go as you expect, Shanny. School has started back for me and my numbers are already creeping up. Not bad, but not as good as they have been. :(

I had a pretty good day. I went for my chest x-ray & blood gas test but my appointment was late so I will have to wait until tomorrow to get my results. I did get my pulse ox and on room air it is 85%, this is better than last week. I still need to improve in this area before I can get off of oxygen. I will need to have an overnight study done because my pulse ox is the lowest while I sleep. :sleep:

My doctor's office called today and said my chext x-ray is improving but my blood gas is still not where it needs to be. My PCP wants me to see the pulmonary doctor that I seen while I was in the hospital. I hope to be able to get in soon.

Doc's office called with bone density results and they were normal . . . he just sez start calcium & vitamin D supplements, and I would have asked him about that if he hadn't volunteered. Not so sure I'll do the calcium since I have history of kidney stones, but I'll definitely be starting vitamin D since I no longer use milk & I don't get out in the sun much either!
