Another Little Ditty


Today I've been bored enough to be creative.
I wrote some CF lyrics to the tune of
"The Pirates Who Don't Do Anything"

"The Patient Who Will Do Anything"

I'm the patient who will do anythihng
except stay at home and lie around
and if you ask me to do aanything
I'll just tell you
"I can do anything!"

Well I'll give aa sputum sample
and I'll put it in that small cup
and then take it to the lab
where they'll analyze it all;
and I'll let you do some blood work
and check my O2 saturations
as I walk for 6 minutes in the hall.

I'm the Patient who does everything
Except stay at home and lie around
and if you ask me to do anything
I'll just tell you
"I will do anything"

I inhale my medications
and I follow doctor's orders
and I excercise my lungs at every chance I get
'cause I know that in the future
It will be getting harder
'But I'm glad I'm not hitting that point yet.

When I end up with pneumonia
or am coughing up some red blood
or can hardly sleep at night
because I'm coughing oh so hard;
then I call for an appointment
at my local CF clinic
'cause I know it is my health that they guard.

I'm the patient who will do anything
except stay at home and lie around;
and if you ask me to do anything
I'll just tell you
"I can do anything!"

When they put me on those steroids
I really seem to puff up
and my tummy gets real big
like a great big rubber ball
But I know that these drugs help me
and I'll breathe so much better
so that I can go to Boston in the Fall.

Cute ditty's you write...
Hope you're beginning to feel better!
 
ok sorry I've been AFK for a bit... you know how life can go. I gotta tell you I own all the veggietale movies. I don't even have kids, and never will, I love them for me!
I hope you start feeling better soon, ICU is no place for a nice girl like you ;)
 
She's not in the ICU anymore; thankfully, that was just an overnight thing. It's now looking like she might get to go home next week! Everything depends on the PFT results, of course.
