Where have I been???

Thursday, April 19, 2012

Hi everyone. I've been gone for a little over a month because I've been in the hospital the entire time. On March 15th, I was rushed to the hospital due to severe shortness of breath, only to find out that I had a hemmhorage in my lungs. It's taken a very long time to get the bleeding in my lungs to stop, not to mention that I also have blood clots in my lungs as well. Because I already had bleeding in my lungs, they couldn't give me blood thinners so fixing my issue has been VERY slow. I've started chemotherapy for my lupus and it has responded pretty well so hopefully I will be going home soon. Since I've been in the hospital, I've lost 30 pounds. I'm 4 pounds from Onederland, but it sucks that I'm losing it through chemo instead of my own hard work. But anyway, that's my update!

    Just thought I'd swing by to check on you & then I find out you've been in the hospital. Oh my! I pray that your health is restored 100%.

Get well my friend, stay positive, pray and remain connected as much as you can.

    OMG, I'm so sorry to hear about your troubles - I guess the 30 lbs is the silver lining but hope the chemo works welle nough that you can go home soon!
