I just wnat to make a quick update for you. I vacationed in New York for a Mystery Conference. During that time, I developed severe chest pain and difficulty breathing. I do not remember any of the conference because my oxygen was at a critical low even with high oxygen.
I was admitted to Albany Medical Center. I had cardio-thorasic surgery and I had fluid in my pericardial sac and pleural space around both lungs. The pressure was so high it cause high pressure in my pulmonary arterial system and right side of my heart. The right side of my heart was not working.
The fluid was drained from around the heart and pleural spaces. Tissue samples were taken. The tissues were very inflamed amd swollen.
I was able to fly back to California this weekend. (I could kiss the ground if I could get down there!)
I saw my Doctor and she is following up with all the pending test results. At this time - the only tests that came back positive seem to be autoimmune. I will be seeing a rheumatologist within the next few days.
I just want to know the reason and hope to get it treated.
I am feeling weak and have a hard time writing or trying to hold a Copic marker - I hope to try to start back on a few of my Design Teams on the 25th. I cut them in half because I will have enough to do with the three remaining teams and my CMC BAckground class I teach. I am trying to relax and keep stress low - that is hard for me to do! I tend to be Type A!. LOL
Please know, I will be back. Expect to see something around the 25th of this month and I am sorry for th delay in posts! I am checking homework daily and interacting with my CMC BAckground Classroom -
This is how my three birds, dog and cat acted when I finally returned home!!!!
Take care and thanks for hanging in there with me!
