Missing In Action….Good Reason!

August 5, 2009

I am so sorry to have been MIA for the last 5 days – I have been real sick and not up to much of anything. I had to go to the urgent care clinic and was immediatly put on a nebulizer as I was having asthma problems along with bronchitis! I felt like a herd of elephants were sitting on my chest and that there was a fire going on in my throat when I swallowed.

I had to have a steroid shot, an antibiotic shot and a nebulizer treatment to get my blood oxygen level from 93 to 98. It should be between 98 & 100 – the Dr. at the clinic stated I would not have made it to Monday.

I actually felt this coming on Thursday afternoon and took Friday off as a PTO – it became increasingly worse as the weekend progressed and on Sunday it became unbearable. I was getting weak, couldn’t breathe, and when I coughed I thought I was going to pass out!

I am starting to feel a little better – I have to do the nebulizer treatment 4 x day, take prednisone in the varying dosages each day, take Levaquin once a day, and then I was given something to help me sleep at night. The last 3 days have been a blur since I have mostly been asleep but today, my chest isn’t quite as tight, I am congested but it is looser and not gross you out, I’m able to cough better and get stuff up.

To tell you the truth, I was scared I would have to go to the hospital with the asthma and this could easily turn into pneumonia if I’m not careful. I’ve been taking all my medicines as prescribed and my breathing treatments.

So, I have been MIA for a good reason…..but I will be back with some posts later today……I just might not be on as much until the weekend.

Thank you for reading my blog…..I love your comments.
