Progress report pleurodesis day 6

I am sitting up after breakfast, but I am definitely feeling a bit dizzy. I guess they are going to transfer me to a regular floor later today. I have not yet walked on my own, but they think I will be able to do that once I get to the regular floor. I have waked only with assistance while feeling out of it We will see

I did manage to eat some of their oatmeal, yucky as it was. But that was better than the dry hard-boiled eggs and pancakes. Everything tastes off to me, not sure why. Of course, by the time I get around to eating it, it is all cold. that does not help. I will try to order cottage cheese and fresh seasonal fruit again for lunch At least that is palatable regardless of the temperature.

So far today no shortness of breath, fever or low blood pressure. The attending in charge today said they were still watching my kidneys, but there was no danger at this point, and the surgery itself looked to be successful.

I keep feeling that if I could get up and walk, it would help get things in my body working again like they should be. Maybe I will actually do better after getting to the regular floor and start moving around more.

  5. You are so used to moving that I think it is adding to why you feel out of sorts. I am encouraged to hear that it sounds as though the surgery was successful. Surgery takes a lot out of you and it’s not surprising things taste funny. On top of that it takes a number of days to shake off anasthesia. My prayers continue to be with you daily and I really appreciate the updates. Here’s to dreams of dancing and hoping you can be up and mobile soon. XoXoXoXo-Susan

  9. You can do this! 🙂
