One Year And More

I cannot believe one year has past since my journey began.  February 24, 2014, I was admitted to the hospital for the first time...antibiotics, surgery, chemo, scans, tests, etc... filled up 2014.

2015 has been uneventful.  I take my medications daily, have monthly doctor visits - usually 2 a month - and still deal with occasional shortness of breath and lack of energy. 

The past 2 weeks I have noticed a cough coming on and wheezing.  I went to my primary doctor last Friday who put me on a 5 day dose pack of steroids to know out whatever was going on with instructions to see my Pulmonary (lung) Doctor.  I saw her today.

There is still localized wheezing on my left side - quite significant.  The problem is, they removed my left lung!?!?  I had thought the wheezing was on that side but thought it was my imagination, but I guess not.

So the plan is chest x-ray tomorrow or the next day.  She thinks it is either pneumonia or another mass.  Depending on what the x-ray shows, my CAT Scan that is scheduled for April 6th may be moved up to next week or the following week.

Overall, I feel good.  Not like I did before - but my new normal :)  I will keep everyone updated with these new events. 

I realize it's been quite a while since I posted anything but as they say - NO news is good news.  Love and thanks to all who send me cards, messages, phone calls and support - you get me through each day!!


  1. Keeping you in my thoughts. Love you.

  2. You are always in my prayers! Hope all will be ok! Love you
