YAY! We just got a call from the doctor (I finally paged him) and he called the radiology department (who hadn’t sent anything to him or called him)–and they say the films look exactly like they did in March, so go ahead and take the steroids! She was so stunned that she hung up then . . . and then asked me what I thought that meant.
“It’s good, of course! No spots or whatnot. Your lungs aren’t perfect, and you still have COPD and asthma and thus some damage, but hey, they look okay!”
She just fell over with relief. Then she wanted me to start counting out those pills. She takes four pills twice a day today and tomorrow. That’s a LOT of prednisone. But I told her, “First I’m gonna announce to my LJ posse. They are thinking of you!”
“Thank them for me!”
Now, if she just gets to FEELING better. These infections are beasts. . . .
(And I just won an eBay auction for a replacement battery charger for our digital camera. Found this morning that the battery was zonked and the charger was nowhere to be found. Hope it’s just the battery and not the camera! But anyhow, maybe I can actually take some photos again now. Not of ME, naturally. Maybe for a “Canyon Creek Daily Photo” blog.)
Thank you all!!
(Even the ones who are only now hearing about it. Thanks for reading.)
