Bad, bad lungs

Okay, this one actually WILL be short (ha! no, it won\’t be) because hey, speaking of short, I am short of breath because there are tumors in the fluid around my neck lungs (duh, lauren) or something like that and anyway it all results in my not being able to breathe. (Or type, apparently; it\’s really gotten hard! And … see above mistake for example!)

So, tomorrow: having a \”sort-of\” surgery, I think. I am so confused about all this. Probably eating something or sleeping might help but … a) no appetite, and b) everytime attempted a nap another vistor or doctor walked in. (Vistitors = YAY!, doctors = boo go away).

Really will have to explain rest of this later. Just know that I need to get this fluid removed from the right side of my lungs tomorrow in order to be able to breathe. And I don\’t need to ask, but prayers are always appreciated. :) OH, and on Valentine\’s Day (uh, Tuesday), I was in a room in (P)ICU without access to phone, and I know a lot of people tried to call and were worried, and well, that is why — so very sorry!! They did save my room for me though (called the Princess Room b/c of how it\’s painted, and yesss I did get pictures!). And I hated the PICU, for a horrible reason, which I\’ll have to get to later.

(Also, will have to get to Spa Day, the one actually fun part of this drearily long hospital stay…)

So in conclusion, they did fix my nausea and my pain (at least for the most part) but now unfortunately cannot breathe. Seriously guys, that\’s an important part of living, I must say! So good night … must finish up some meds before I go to bed for earlyish non-surgeryish thing tomorrow? Yeah, sorry for The Vague. Hope to see you all soon though! (Will give my loving godmommy login info if needed, of course, if I can\’t get on for whatever reason.) Ciao…!

    Sweetie … it was wicked busy in that there hotel, er, hospital room today. What with phone calls, visitors, doctors (biggie ups to the docs, though, girly. They be helping you to breath, yo!) and that really nice nurse (Shannon?). Can’t forget the ultrasound where we saw that gerbil you be hiding beneath your right armpit!

    Sending love and good energy for your non-surgery surgery tomorrow.

    Hugs and squeezies and double bitty paws!

    I love you, Laur! You’re going to be fine and that surgery will certainly improve the being able to breathe department. You are in my prayers and I hope to talk to you soon!

    Yeah for saving the Princess room!!! You’re in my thoughts and prayers. Teddy and Tyler (and I) want to know when they can come see the princess room (little boys LOVE pink much to the dismay of their fathers!!)

    Hey Lauren…By the time you read this I’m praying that you are breathing with ease and are well on your way to getting out of Children’s and headed back to school! You’ll have to check out the Olympics website…they have some wonderful sounding Italian recipes that you’ll be interested in! Be good to yourself and know lots of prayers are flooding heaven for you!

    We had a blast in the Princess room. Hope you had a good rest. You’re in our thought. -Jon, Danielle, Shelby (aka, Shelby the wonder pup), and Hershey.

    Hi Lauren,
    Hope your feeling much better today. I have been thinking of you and my dad and I are going to say a special prayer for you tonight. I miss you and I want you to get better so I can see you soon.
    Love you,
    Cousin Michele
