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:

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:

Thank heaven you're leveling off . . . that's over 100# you've lost! Plenty thin for as tall as you are. We really don't want you to dry up & blow away! ;) Excellent progress, Eric. You're amazing!
Thank You for your kind words Shanny!

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!

That is good news Shanny! You seem to be so healthy! I am jealous!:p
