Thinking spring thanks to the lovely Dianna who made the tag above. This girl is awesome. She sends me a tag almost every day. They just keep getting prettier all the time.
Today started out so normal. Actually, I started putting up Easter decorations since it is Ash Wednesday. I got some cleaning done, as planned, so Miss Megan wouldn't have a total stroke when she comes home on Friday for spring break.
Joey has been complaining since Saturday of a sore chest when he coughs or laughs. Didn't sound serious to me. It seemed like a pulled muscle. I was getting ready to drop my computer off at the Fed Ex drop off (finally). I found a drop off point down by my bus stop and was thrilled.
Joey got up complaining again. He said that his breathing was so bad last night he felt like he was suffocating. I called the doctor. They said take him to the ER. I had an appointment to get a cut and color job on my hair at five. For some reason, I was fussing about this. I put my priorities in place and changed it to Sat. and off we went. I swear I will soon own a wing at Butler Memorial.
His lungs were clear, no wheezing. Chest x-ray was great but they had some concern about a blood clot because of the severe pain he had experienced so we spent all afternoon having tests run to rule that out. I'm surprised at myself that I didn't think blood clot because I keep up on medical stuff. Of course, once we were there, the tenderness and severe pain had subsided. I must say many of the doctors here don't impress me. I prefer going to the city for our treatment but the hospital and testing is state of the art. His tests came back all clear....no clots.
He is going to get some tests done for asthma, as that is a possibility even though he has never suffered from it.
I talked to my mother today. She had another CAT scan done. She had similar symptoms a month ago as Joey did. Her lung was partially collapsed and there was a shadow on it. The shadow is almost completely gone. It wasn't a mass or a clot. The docs are perplexed but a repeat CAT scan will be done in 2 weeks. They are expecting the shadow to be gone. They are suspecting that she bruised it. She was washing walls (at 87 yrs old) and slipped off the ladder.
So, all's well that ends well.......my house is half clean....LOL...not immaculate and the laundry is totally falling out of my hamper. I should be doing something now but I have a headache starting, and I'm ready to take a bath and hit the couch.
Have a great evening!!!!!
HUGS Shelly, now I'm thinking summer...............
