We were down visiting my mother, sister, one brother from Wyoming and one brother from Arkansas May 1.
We came home on May 2. I started feeling sick on the 4th of May. By the time Monday came I didn't have a voice. Dear hubby had to call to get me in to see our doctor. I got in that day. I was checked for flu. Doctor ask me to go to the hospital for test, I had X-rays, EKG, urine test, and blood drawn. The nurse had to poke me 5 times to draw blood. The next day I was told I didn't have the flu but blood was found in my urine.
I was on a strong antibiotics for a week, coughing my head off the whole time. I started coughing up blood last week-end. I had another appointment Monday the 13th. He asked if I had been around someone smoking. My doctor called in for a pulmonary test and CT. I'm pretty sure I failed the pulmonary test, I couldn't stop coughing after each testing. After she gave me Albuterol to inhale, I started shaking (tremor). When I left the hospital I had to get in a wheel chair because I was shaking so much. When the doctors office called for the results the next day, they said I have Pneumonia and COPD.
I'm on three medications now, coughing but not as much as I did last week. I'm dizzy walking and sitting. I haven't slept well since this all started. Hurts to take a deep breath. I haven't been out of the house that much, and if I do I wear a mask. I surely don't need someones germs.
For years it takes my breath to be around someone smoking. It also takes my breath to smell hair sprays, cooking sprays or deodorizer sprays. I've had asthma most of my life.
