another long week

  • Mood: hanging in there

Long week and a long time since I posted, I have been having technical difficulties on top of everything else, so computer moments have been limited.  Hopefully all is straightened out now. 

 

So my cough has continued, and continued, and continued.  Does it sound as if I have had enough, if I could only think of the words to describe how much past enough coughing I have done.  So I saw my family doc last Thursday, got an antibiotic, hasn’t really helped.  I had an appointment with the ENT, that I should have cancelled a long time ago, but for some reason hung onto, so I kept it, on Wednesday.  I called the thoracic surgeon, and oncologist on Monday.  I wanted a chest x-ray done while I was at the U, and wanted the oncologist to know what was going on—I really am still thinking why in the world would I even think about doing 1 more chemo when these last 3 have started sucking my core energy right out of me, it just makes no sense. 

So my vocal cords look good, we saw them on TV again, they are going to think they are famous pretty soon for as much as they have been on TV.  But it was kind of cool, all the residual collagen shows up white, so you could see all the white in my vocal cords, and around them, so it makes sense I have a raspy voice, I still don’t have to like the raspy voice, but it makes sense, and if that was the only problem, it would be a piece of cake, who really cares if my voice is raspy.  The inside of my nose was pretty irritated (& gross looking) from all the nose blowing I have been doing, and from my nose to my throat was extremely dry looking.  Other than that, he did not know why I was coughing.  I did ask him about the huge amount of clear liquid I get up from time to time, and where in the heck it comes from, he said your body makes all this fluid to help clear out your lungs, and when the lung is not there it still makes the fluid to do that, I asked where it is from, he said it is like pockets in your trachea, something I never heard of, but I sure can verify the large amount of clear liquid that seems to come out of now where.  I just keep on learning more and more.  The body is a wonderful amazing thing when it all works like it is suppose to.

I heard from the surgeons office yesterday, his nurse said he was pretty cute when he saw it was my x-ray, he got all excited.  I have not seen him since before Christmas, I would think those specialty surgeons don’t get to follow up with people once the big surgery is done and the recovery is underway, so it is kind of nice to every now and then see where things have progressed to.  But my x-ray was great, so I still don’t know why I am coughing.  But I have ruled out 2 big things in my eyes, my vocal cords are not as raw and sandy as they feel, and my chest hurts from coughing so much, I did not blow that graft or anything like that and if my surgeon, who I consider to be the best of the best, is happy with how the x-ray looks, I am happy.  Maybe I just have the viral crud that 95% of the people have and just have to wait my 7-10 days for it to start to get better, man it seems longer than that already, I am getting tired.

So this is my low blood count weekend from the Taxol, so I will be a stay at home kind of person once again.  It is going to be cold outside anyways, I never knew how much I appreciated being home until these last couple years, I am glad I like my house, I sure would hate it if I had to spend so much time being somewhere I did not want to be. 

 

Emily went for her first physical therapy session on Wednesday, again thank goodness for Justin who sat with her during the session, I was working, I guess he is going to be well rounded to by the time all of this is over for our family, he should know the ins & outs of much of the medical community.  It was a good session for her, lots of positives.  She is going to have to do the hard work to get back to where she wants to be, but she will, I have total confidence in her.  Bill & Lindsey are going to pick up Emily’s car this weekend so it will be here.  The therapist told her she should be able to drive right away.  She sees the neurosurgeon on 3/14, countdown………7 days to go, maybe that would be considered 6 days to go………oh well, it will be here when it gets here.  She will have 2 more sessions prior to getting out of the brace, then some after also, she will get there. 

Think that is it, long one, sorry.  It was a really long week.

Bamford è andato da Black orologi replica Badger che aveva già imparato a conoscere il materiale e lo ha utilizzato per prodotti più semplici, e quindi presumibilmente ha sperimentato come lavorarlo e renderlo repliche rolex per il massimo appeal estetico in un orologio.

Ciò consente Omega replica alle anse dell'orologio di essere in rame, mentre il resto della cassa ha un interessante aspetto fantascientifico. Sebbene sia certamente una questione di gusti, il caso risultante è sia ispirato che rolex replica visivamente assertivo. Personalmente, penso che questo sarebbe un El Primero davvero dolce per il rock, con un sacco di personalità. Per fortuna utilizza la custodia Zenith El Primero da 42 mm di larghezza (13 mm di spessore e resistente all'acqua fino a 100 metri).
