O2 24/7 Wow !

Hello to all my friends here at "Welcome To My Little Corner of The World" well it's been a while since my last post and let me tell you what ride I have been on ! March 17th. Tues. my favorite Holiday, St. Patrick's Day I went to see my primary care Dr. cause I got a cold , well darn the DR. put me on antibiotics and also nebulizer every 4 hours ! Well each days seemed to get a little worse, well come Saturday the 21st. I was at the ER cause I could not breathe my chest felt like I was under water...dang what an awful feeling that was !
Well the ER person put me right on oxygen it seems my 02 levels dropped to about 88percent !

Then the Dr. and the nurses came in and started IV drips with an antibiotic and some sort of a steroid medication and of course i was admitted !

Now while I was in this "hospital" I had several issues with the nursing staff and dietary....
Seems that the "Pharmacist" at the hospital can tell you what melds you need to have and not need to have...soooooooo I questioned the nurse and asked to speak with the pharmacist in person, needless to say that never happened....my advice...as I have said before do not let anyone dictate what your meds are Speak Up some one will listen ! I know I did and someone did listen!

Now dietary...geez I was on a low salt, diabetic diet...why ? well due to the meds I was on "Salmedrol" (sp) it caused my blood sugar to elevate so therefore i had to receive "Insulin" to offset the sugar level...darn ! as far as the low salt well that's another story, seems the Pharmacist thought due to my meds I should be on a Heart healthy diet what was he thinking !?

Anyway I am home now with Oxygen 24/7 it will take some getting used to but, as I always say it could be worse ! My life has changed and I will need to adjust to such and take one day at a time.

So, until we meet again my friends,
Inhale~~~123
Exhale~~~~1234

Breathe Easy,
Sandy
