I thought I'd post a quick update tonight to follow my last blog post... Unfortunately things haven't really picked up in the chest department. I've been getting chronic headaches and have been having bad chest pain,(on top of my other symptoms) which I do get quite a lot, but when it's really painful it is often a sign of inflammation and infection. I've also been relying more on my non invasive ventilator (NIV) more to help me catch my breath and generally feel able to breathe! I am going to be admitted to the Bromoton tomorrow, I'm just praying for a speedy recovery and an uncomplicated admission! But hey, got to get the x rays and blood tests done first so that we know what we're dealing with. I'm obviously a bit (ok, very!) scared and upset, but it's the best place for me to be so they can continue to make sure I remain fit enough to have a transplant, should any lungs that are a match become available. I'll write again very soon! With hopefully, more positive news!
