I'm spending a bunch 'o' time on Facebook, reconnected with a bunch of old friends and family . I'm very picky on who I welcome so all I can say is send me a request and I'll decide on who I accept. If I do accept your request all I ask is if you please keep it somewhat clean, I have a bunch of family on my page and I have to respect that. So feel free to look me up, I look forward to seeing you there!
It started back on Weds March 17th when I woke up with what I thought was going to turn into a nasty cold or even maybe a sinus infection, but then as time went on I really started to wonder. On Fri I was feeling real bad flipping from real bad cold chills & trembles to sweating like a mad dog with rabies! Finally things came to head when I woke late Friday night/Saturday morning and could barely breathe, so I woke up came out to the living room and got online for a bit. I decided I would Google pneumonia and really started thinking that what it was! Now in my 36 years I've never had pneumonia so I really had no clue of the symptoms and stuff, but I was freaking out so I woke Crystal up and told me we had to go to the E.R.
We got to HRH E.R. at about 7 am and sure enough I had pneumonia in my lower lobe of my right lung, so the gave me meds and an inhaler and sent me on my merry way.
I took my meds like I was told and kinda thought I was doing better, but the longer I went the worse it got! Soooooo Early Weds morning I went back to the E.R. and this time they ran a bunch of blood including two blood gas, now if you've never had the pleasure of having a big ass needle jabbed in an artery in your wrist I really hope you never have to have it done because IT HURT LIKE HELL!!!! In my right wrist they stuck me 5 times with no luck, then 3 more time in my left wrist to get it, but then the E.R. doc wasn't happy with that so he came back and stuck my 2 more time in my left wrist (OUCHHHHHHHH)! And with that he admitted me. I didn't get to my first room until about 2 hours later, then a while later they moved to a private room and hooked me up oxygen. I though I was gonna go home Thursday but when the Dr. came in he said he was worried cause I wasn't getting enough oxygen to my blood, the norm is supposed to be between 80's to 100's mine was in the mid 50's. He said he didn't want to worry us but he thought I might have a blood clot in my lung, so I had my first C.T. scan! We got the results back and they found pneumonia in my left lung as well, so it was another night in the Hospital. This morning I got up, took my oxygen off at around 6:30, had my breathing treatment, ate breakfast and had a nice shower and stood through the whole thing without getting too out of breathe. At that time I knew I was going home(I know, I'm a mule), when the doc came in he said if my O2 stat was over 90 off my oxygen I could go home lucky me hit a 94! I really want to than the E.R. staff that helped me Weds morning, and the Hospital Staff that took great care of me including Dr. Sohail Gulzar, he did everything he needed to keep me going! My night nurse Sydney & day nurse Sarah who were both beyond amazing! the respiratory staff who was in with me every four hours making sure I had my treatments. All of you guys were great and I can't say thank you enough! I was honestly scared I wasn't gonna make it out of this one!
For Christmas Crystal & I got an old school Nintendo from her nephew as a white elephant gift(if you need to ask do it lol). Along with it we got about 30+ games all of them but maybe 10 work great. Now if any of you remember when you bought Nintendo new you got Super Mario Bros 3 with the console, and for some of us that was one of the few game we had! Anyway Crystal & I have been playing Super Mario bros 3 almost every night sometime twice on weekends lol! Now at first that was okay but the more we played strange things started happening to me at night. After a night of playing I fell asleep and began dreaming I was Luigi trying to get through the game without dying. Everything was fine until I woke up screaming " OHHHHH SHIT LUIGI WATCH OUT, DON'T FALL"!!! Now it hasn't been every night this happens but when it does WOW. So Crystal said I needed a break from Super Mario Bros 3 and I think that lasted a day lol, in fact I played for a couple hours this morning.
I really wish there was a way I could video tape my dreams, cause man that would be a thing to see!!!!
Well I had my 6 week checkup today and it was kinda good and kinda I dunno. I finally gave in and was put on Prozac, I'm kinda unsure about it cause I thought I could deal with depression on my own and I honestly thought I had been doing good all these years! So I guess we'll see when I get going. I know I've blogged about my depression before but I really don't think I wanted to admit to myself that I was really that bad off, so now I'll start a different journey to see if I can get back to my old happy self!
On the other side I gained 10 lbs of the 21 I lost so I'm going back Thursday to have more fasting labs done to see where my TSH (Thyroid) number is at so we can decide if they need to up my meds again!
So that's that! I'm hoping things will start looking up, I know it's gonna take some time so I gotta be patient which is real hard for me ! Anyway thanks to everybody for caring and reading. I hope ya'll are doing well!!!
