Thanks Michelle....this seems to have rather galloped upon me...
Update...
I went back to the hospital after one week because I wasn't coping well. I have to continue on the high dose of steroids for another week because my lungs still have crackles. Starting a course of treatment in case it's thrush in my throat causing the croaky voice and then starting a 3 month + course for the fungi that showed up in the blood test. This is because the steroids aren't moving me on quick enough. I'll need weekly live function tests for the first 4 weeks, then monthly.
So will see doctor tomorrow morning for these meds.
I also need to see ENT re the throat if it doesn't clear up and she's looking into the physio appointment.
She said as this is a long term condition I will need to carry on seeing a respiratory consultant after I'm discharged from this hospital in 6 mths time. I can continue to see her under the general health service.

Praying for the other needs listed....Our God is Able!! .

Will keep praying for your recovery. Had no idea you'd been feeling so poorly! I've been out of touch here on SP.

Blessings, Michelle

Thanks for asking Michelle and for all the prayers...which God has answered. PTL.

Well no COPD or Fibrosis!! That was the best news. Seems I have bronchietasis which is abnormal widening of the bronchi into the lungs causing a risk of infection. It is a long term condition caused by a build up of mucus which can make lungs vulnerable to infection. I had a positive reaction to several things in the blood test. One was aspergillosis (fungal) but she's not sure if it causing me problems at this stage. She listened to my lungs and said there were some soft crackles. So I'll see doc tomorrow...have a paper with instructions on from her. I'm to have two other inhalers, keep the salbutamol. Also a long course of steroids to try and clear this up. If that doesn't work she'll use a fungal course which means I'll also have to have liver function tests. I'm also to go there for some physio...she said they'll try and see if I have some mucus that can be loosened. I have an appointment to see her in one week but if I start feeling an improvement I can move the appointment to 2 weeks.
Today I saw my general doctor for the medication and steroids. I'm to take a long course of 6 weeks on steroids...
I've had a cold since Monday and feel generally unwell, apart from the breathing issues. But hopefully now I will start to improve.

Shadow's appetite has returned. But I am not allowed to put her medicine in her food.

Please pray for my cat Shadow. Up until last night, she was an enthusiastic eater. Now she is not eating anything other than a tiny bite.

Please pray that Leah and Mitch will sell their house in Carbondale. They have lowered the price again and will just about break even but they need to be out from under this double living expense!

Please share your praises and needs here so we can lift each other up . . .

10/12 - Thankfully my breathing is doing much better the last two days so PTL for that.
I had the CT scan today but won't get the results probably for about 3 weeks.


SMILINGEYES2
10/12 - Last two dialysis runs have resulted in multiple alarms as a result very little sleep for my son or myself. It did get extra steps in as I would have to get up and check on him in the bedroom. If we can not get good flow he will need to see the surgeon again. He is running out of access points for his catheter. On a positive note, PTL that his apnea has gone from 69 episodes per hour to less than 6. The doctor made some adjustments to bring it down a little more.
