Well since I didn't update after lasts clinic I will double up this time.
Last week I was up to 1.26L 43% FEV1 which was way up from before the hospital at .93L 32%! But we kept the PICC in another week just to see if I could get up a little higher.
This week I hit 1.21L and 41% so down slightly instead of up. However, I did an albuterol treatment right before I left the house last time so I was only about 90 minutes post treatment whereas this time I was over 2.5 hours post. Yes that time difference will cause that much of a drop in my lung function. That's OK though, they still pulled the PICC!
After PFTs I was informed I was getting an altitude test done! Say whaaaaaaaaaat? They can now test you to see if you require O2 during a plane flight! How cool!
We started out in my exam room, then were kicked out to another consult room. But then we realized there was no O2 hook up so it was off to the PFT lab room! Once in there we were informed the IT guy needed to do work on the computer. Was I OK with him being there? YES! Let's just do this 20 minute test and get it over with please lol!
And please don't forgetI am not at liberty to post publicly who I need love and prayers for, but he needs them folks. Lots and lots of them. They are for a very close friend of mine who is fighting for his life right now. And when I say fighting, I mean it. <3 <3 <3
