Posted May 22, 2010 3:16pm I thought today was going to be quiet. I felt short of breath at 5am this morning so the nurses put me back on o2 for about an hour. I was disappointed but knew it was necesssary.
I mentioned it to the lung team and they checked my lungs again and said they were clear. I wonder if this is anxiety??
My creatinine is coming down so this is good news, but I still have to be monitored so I'm staying. I think, but not sure, that she said till Wednesday! Yuck...
I get very nauseous when taking the thirty or so pills in the morning so today we tried gravol again. Gravol makes me so drowsy that's why I hate it. Tomorrow we will try a stronger drug that has to be given early and doesn't make you drowsy.
I went out like a light after taking it. I'm sound asleep when the physio guy comes ( we arrange an afternoon session), two kidney docs came, I had to go for a chest x-ray (I've had so many I'm going to light up like a Christmas Tree).
Got back, had lunch then another nap, then physio...phew, I'm tired thinking about it all.
Hope everyone is having a great long weekend
Love to all

Both days have been fairly quiet. Did my physio which right now consists of walking several times around the floor and climbing a full flight of stairs.
No tests done thank goodness.
The lung doctors have been in every morning and are pleased with my progress. I'm peeing up a storm now and my legs and feet are starting to look like legs and feet. My creatinine levels are dropping which is a good thing. It was 158 this morning...normal is 50-98.
When I question them about coming home I'm told it's day to day.
I guess I'm in the right place to get this sorted out.
