what is going onnn

ok WHAT? had part of entry typed … realized Grey\’s Anatomy was on … tried to find it on TV with my bed clicker … went 1 too far, and can\’t go back on mine, so asked mom to go back 1 channel with TV buttons, looked back down at computer, and WordPress entry textboxes ARE COMPLETELY BLANK WHAT HAPPENED!??!?

sigh. and so, again:

(oh don\’t worry, it\’s just going to be all complaining anyway)

Oh. Man. So I was feeling so well like, two days ago, and now I can barely breathe again. :( It just kept getting worse and worse throughout the day, and, in the midst of writing this the LAST time (glares at computer), one of the doctors came in and decided I need a chest xray and oops actually as it turns out I must go RIGHT NOW in the middle of GA (which of course is what I predicted in the last writing of this) and so gotta log off, see ya bye. (will edit later maybe?)

11:37 PM   EDIT Yes, okay, so it was a quickish xray and I caught the last 10 minutes of GA. But still, wasn\’t really paying attention to beginning anyway … oh what am I complaining about, I\’ve got it on TIVO at home. (I hope. I haven\’t been able to go through my TIVO in sooo long and so now I just assume I ran out of room about two weeks ago and am missing EVERYTHING. You can download TV episodes on iTunes now, yes? For like $2? Orrr something? Can anyone enlighten me there?)

Hmm okay, so the other news is that I will probably have a CT scan tomorrow to see if my piggy tail tube needs to be repositioned so that it can suck out some more fluid and then I can breathe again?? Maybe? Pleeease???

Yeah, seriously, you just don\’t know how bad this can be until you experience it, and I am so, so sorry for those in worse-off positions than me. Oh gosh, this morning I had some weird coughing/sneezing/dry-heaving fit that was so so bad. If I cough too much, it makes me feel like throwing up, so I always try to turn it into deep breaths and that usually works, except this time it really felt like something was going to come up so my mom grabbed my bucket and then … I sneezed? Very odd, but THEN, could not catch my breath at ALL, and it was horrible and I sort of cycled through the coughing/dry heaves/sneezing until finally calmed down (think nurse turned the O2 up) with cool cloth on my head. But whew. That was bad stuff. Please, breathing, I miss you!

Okay so now I\’m just hoping everything works out/goes well tomorrow. And again, will I ever see the outside of this hospital again?? (Forget more ambulance trips to NIH because I\’ve decided against radiation since the pain in my leg is not so bad … so unless it gets bad again … *nervously knocks on wood-colored plastic* … no fresh air for me until discharge?)

And uh, apologies if my last entry was a bit hard to understand ( target=\”a\”>anyone? anyone?). I didn\’t see anything too confusing, but I think I\’ll just blame my brain, which decides to turn off my consciousness and then further decides to make my fingers go on a crazy typing spree and who knows what I am saying then? Anyway, time for bed now, and let\’s hope some sweet sweet breath makes its way back to me tomorrow!

    Well, durn. I’ve had that happen to me on WordPress too. I hate that! Grrrrrrr. Hope the xrays aren’t too hellish for ya. Smoochies and love x 12(gazillion).

    holla chica. Sorry about the x-ray interruption. If I were your nurse I would have more consideration when Grey’s Anatomy would be on. On second thought, I would probably not be working that night just to watch GA. I watched GA and it was pretty good. Wonder when this season will end? I bought GA season 1 and I’ve watched all of it except for the last episode. I actually got my roommates hooked on GA. lol.
    Crossing fingers so that everything will go well with the CT tomorrow. I had to have a CT last week b/c they thought that I had apendicitis!!! SCARRY! But I’m okay. I just had a stomach virus and my lymph nodes were going all crazy in that specific area, hence the pain. Consequently, I’ve lost like 5 lbs. (not complaining there!) b/c I haven’t been able to eat much. I’m sure my hunger will kick back in full force anytime now.
    Oh, btw I have Spring Break from the 11-19 so I’ll give you a call and see where you’re at and maybe I can come visit you and bring you your very, VERY late X-Mas gift! Better late than never!
    Missing you so much and praying for you even more.

    woot my break is same as Ney’s!! I hope you feel better tomorrow babe and can breathe better too. I’m praying that the CT scan goes well, and I’ll try and call tomorrow, but I’m going to be gone most of the day w/ classes, dance, work, and birthday shopping. Love ya.

    I taped Grey’s Anatomy last night so if you want my tape it’s yours! (I couldn’t stay awake to watch it -too many late nights this past week/weekend!)

    hey, we were in the ER at UVA and guess what- the Olympic closing ceremonies bumped Grey’s Anatomy…Nora decided to study for her Econ test instead…really ruined the satisfaction I get from watching a hospital show in the hospital!
    Feel better-I am sending your mom a pic of Nora I think someone you know will enjoy.
