Under the Weather
I had a doctor appointment on Wednesday, and it didn't go well. My lung function was only 66% predicted. My doctor has put me on levaquin, but is doing so with the condition that if my PFTs don't improve within two weeks, he's going to admit me.
Admittedly, I don't want to be admitted :) I bit the bullet yesterday at work and let my supervisor and project colleagues know that I'm going to be out of the office for awhile. I'm hoping that now that I'm back on TOBI, I'll be able to get in shape soon. I left the office at noon yesterday and plan to stay put for the next several days. I'm going to do nothing but take my meds, eat, and rest.
This is hard for me. I hate slowing down this much; I hate missing work, especially when I'm working on exciting and challenging projects. However, I also know that by taking it easy now, I'll be able to have a longer run of good health later. I am so incredibly blessed to be at a job that is relatively flexible, and that I have a supervisor who understands (or at least is sympathetic to) my situation.
Please keep me in your prayers over the next several days. Pray that my body will begin to heal itself with the antibiotics and that my lung function will improve. Pray also for my husband that he won't be too stressed out--we've got a lot on our plates right now as far as stuff to deal with, and me ending up in the hospital would only make things tougher. I am glad to know that no matter what is going on in my life, God is in absolute control. He has been keeping us safely in the hollow of His hand for a long time now, and I know that won't ever change.
I am praying for you daily. We are also adding you to our prayer team list. You will receive prayer for 30 days.
Love and Light,
i'm sorry to hear your pft's were low. I really hope the meds you got will help you and that you won't have to go into hospital in 2 weeks.
I'll be thinking of you!
ps. i was wondering if you recieved my last email, it was weeks ago but i send in from another emailaddress so i thought you maybe didn't see it was from me..
