back to the doc again


Here we go, folks.  Back to the doctor for a re-check.  This will be my GP (General Practitioner) here in town.  After all the meds I got last week I’m still not well.  I mean, people, I’m not really much better at all.

I’m anxious to see what she tells me today.  After that appointment, I go just up the street to see the cardiologist she set me up with.  I’m not sure what she’s thinking, if there’s some specific reason she is sending me, or if it’s just to be positive that my heart isn’t to blame in this somehow…

I am thinking my lack of fever all this time makes her suspect something a bit more serious than a bug or just allergies.  I dunno… I think one of the papers I got said something about an echocardiogram, so maybe they’ll do that today, too.

My own opinion at this point is that there’s something going on with my lungs.  My ribcage isn’t super-sore today, but man, it sure has been for the past couple.  I detest having a nagging, body-jarring cough that makes you almost throw up.  It hasn’t been like that consistently, but enough that I’m done with it.  I’m also convinced that the antibiotics aren’t working.

I’m also convinced that the antibiotics aren’t working.

Cue the dramatic music… yeah, I don’t like that the antibiotics seem to have stopped working for me.  That means we’ll have to try something else.  The prospect of doing that scares me to death!!

Something else too…I don’t think the steroids did anything to help either.  Maybe I’m doing whatever it is when nothing works for you anymore.  What is that?  Like super-immune?  Do you get “immune” to medications?  I dunno!  But it is really worrisome.

So there you have it.  My current status on the sick-o-meter.  It ain’t lookin’ good, folks.  But hopefully, it won’t get any worse.

Please Lord, make me well!

Psalm 30:1-2

I will extol you, O Lord, for you have drawn me up and have not let my foes rejoice over me.  O Lord my God, I cried to you for help, and you have healed me.
