I had such high hopes this month to get my blog back to where is wanted it.... However my body had other plans for me. I have been in the hospital for 15 days now! I am awaiting a transfer to Duke hospital. On the 12th of March I woke up feeling really bad and very labored breathing. My primary care doctor couldn’t get me in till Thursday. I knew deep down I was in trouble and that was not an option. I needed to be seen. I was taken to the local ER and transported to a larger hospital from there. We have learned at this point there is some constriction in the pericardium of my heart. The doctors here are not sure if that is the problem. They want me somewhere a rheumatologist and a cardiac team can set down together and decide what is Lupus and what is from a different source. I think this is a wonderful plan. I have been waiting to be transferred since Friday! I miss so many aspects of my old life. I was almost excited when I thought the heart was for a moment there is a procedure that could fix that. The doctors where I am now are scared to touch me because of all of past history. These past few days have been topsy turvy with emotion. Pain levels don’t help that all nor does their favorite drug of choice prednisone.
She loved them.... Even though this was not the ideal way to celebrate a Birthday I am very thankful we were all still here to celebrate with her! My oldest daughter has been awesome making sure anything that needs to be taken care of at home is done. So my hubby can be by my side during all of this. He’s my rock and really don’t know what I would do with out him! I am very blessed to call him mine!
