Thank you all for the prayers! Here is the update I posted in our chat thread:
I have been away for a few days because I was in the hospital. Not feeling good from side effects from the radiation. It started out with pain when swallowing, (throat burned from radiation), and I wasn't eating enough or drinking enough fluids. I got to feeling kind of weak and shaky, and had a rapid heart rate.
Went to the ER Saturday, at the time I went in my heart rate was 151. They admitted me to the hospital and did some tests and gave me lots of fluids. Also found out I had a UTI. Came back home Tuesday but wasn't online much because of a migraine that lasted til early in the evening last night.
I have an appointment with a cardiologist on the 9th; my oncologist noticed that on the heart ultrasound I had in the hospital that one of the heart muscles is pumping too slow and he wants to know why. I also have an appointment coming up with a surgeon to get set up for an upper endoscopy to take a look at my throat.
My name is Shari; I have been a Sparker since July 2006, and living with Stage IV breast cancer since 2007.
Promise me you'll always remember: You're braver than you believe, and stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think.
