Todays Test – Passed with a C

It was much better than I expected! The man who administers the test was pretty forthcoming which is a nice change. So much better than having to wait for a doctor followup appointment. He said it looks like I’ve developed asthma, but not very bad. So, YAY!

I know, random people reading this may not think it’s a yay, but with my family history believe me it is! Two parents with emphysema and seeing the ravages it takes on a body makes this little chickie quite happy to have a preliminary diagnosis of asthma. He gave me a couple of puffs of albuterol as part of the test and I feel better. Not great, but better! I hope my doctor just calls in a script for it while I’m waiting for our followup in March. Oxygen is a pleasant thing to have. So, everyone breathe easy (hahaha) for another month.

Tomorrow is oncologist follow appointment. The fun never ends.

  1. Oh joy! Now that news does make me joyful and it will brighten Craig’s day, too. His father has and his grandfather had emphysema so he was concerned when I told him.

    I hope the albuterol does the job. I know I am not a doctor and my stuff is different but they gave me an albuterol inhaler and a steroid inhaler. The steroid inhaler relieved the inflammation and really helped me much more than the albuterol. Lets see what was my diagnosis? It was allergy induced ashthma. I know this is probably different from what you have.

    Anyway enough yammering about me – I am happy for you!!!
