A Disappointing Setback

To sum it all up, I'm sick again. I am so incredibly disappointed. My FEV1 dropped all the way down to what it was when I was hospitalized last time.

Yesterday I had PFTs done. I was really shaky and wobbly when I did them and the RTs were concerned. They gave me oxygen and called my CF nurse to come over. She recommended I go to the ER. She volunteer to "drive" me over in a wheelchair. While we were waiting I passed out (which by the way bumps you to the front of the line in the ER! ha!) When I came to I was wearing a hospital gown. My heart rate was something like 225.

They did a full workup and called my doctor. He and I talked on the phone and he said he didn't want to ruin my Thanksgiving, but he did want me to be admitted. The choice was basically up to me.

*sigh* This is a frustrating turn of events. Your prayers are much appreciated.

Comments:
I'm so sorry to hear this. I'll be praying for you, Lauren.
 
We're praying for you! Maybe Brad can sneak in a Turkey for you...no one will notice :-)
 
Oh no!!! Lauren we are praying for you. Brad better sneak in some pumpkin pie while he is at the turkey part.

Are you where you were last time? (Don't want to write for privacy). I would love to come down and visit. I'm pretty sure I would have to stop by cinnabon first though. :)
 
So sorry you are sick again!I'm praying for you.
 
She's not actually admitted yet. "Don't want to ruin your Thanksgiving" meant that he's going let us wait until after the holiday to go in.
 
Thanks you so much for bringing attention to cystic fibrosis and sharing your experiences...

I'm sorry to hear you're sick. I will pray you don't get any worse before being admitted.
 
Oh man. I'm sorry.

Sending love and praying for you. xoxo Elise
 
Sorry your heading back in. I will be too on the 1st. We'll have to compare rooms :D.
 
Lauren,

I'm so sorry to hear this! How wearing. Stay strong girl, you already are!

Enjoy your thanksgiving as much as you can! God bless!
 
I'm praying for you right now, found you via my CF sis Sommer from Love to Breathe.

I'll continue to pray for you!
 
Just wanted to say I'm thinking of you. And hope you are feeling a little better now.

Really big hug sweetie
Marjolein
