Well my day did not go as planned. I am in conjested heart failure again according to my doctor. My legs are so swollen and I am havng some trouble breathing. My inhaler didn't help me. I called my doctor and if I can't get the fluid off by doubling my lasix I have to go into the hospital. Drag big time as it is my floor I will have to be admitted to and I really don't want them to know I have this problem.
My brother was 35 when he died. My youngest sister is waiting for a heart transplant. We have some sort of genitic cardiomyopathy in my family. Supposenly since I am older then 40 I don't have to worry about getting that but I still have some cardiac problems. They aren't sure if it is related or not. I take a medicine everyday, HCTZ to help me get rid of the fluid but sometimes, when I drink to much water, Duh, it gets ahead of me and I have problems. I was always hoping losing weight and exercising would make it go away. Nurses are such bad patients, LOL. It is not good that I am young and having these problems I was told, I told her it was better that I was young because I could fight it better. I will be better because this is about the worse I have felt in awhile. So much for exercising today.
Check out the great tag I got from Sassy.
