Guess I'm doing ok

Recommended Posts

Hi Everyone,

 

Well I was waiting for test results from the doctor, and blood test seem to check out okay. He tested me for scleroderma and other things and I am thankful that these tests are negative. He did tell me that I have very high cholesterol, and also arthritis, also I am having some pretty major breathing problems, so he prescribed an rescue inhaler. I had quit smoking about 4 months ago, and about 2 months ago I started having trouble breathing, some people say this is because the lungs are trying to clear out. Sometimes the breathing problem seems bad enough to go to the hospital, then like a hour later it subsides, this goes on and off like that all day. I am hoping the inhaler will work. By the way, I haven't heard too much from my sister lately, but my mom says shes doing okay. She has moved closer to me, but crazy as it seems we haven't spoken for almost over a week. I'm thinking sis might have got tired of all the company and needs a little me time. I do check on her by talking to mom to make sure things are okay.

 

But when you have diffuse scleroderma are things ever okay? Maybe I should say that I hope for my sister and everyone out there that things are the best they can be.

Hi NorthStarHope,

 

It's good news that you've had your tests and that they've come back negative. I hope that the inhaler prescribed for you will help with your breathing and improve your quality of life.

 

I'm pleased that your sister seems to have settled a little and is obviously feeling a bit better. I think with Sclero things do stablise a bit and also your sister is perhaps learning to cope with the disease a little.

 

Do please keep us posted, won't you? :)
