Great Clinic Visit

Well, folks, Beautiful was right. Again. She always is, so remember that, fair peoples of the world. I told her that I was feeling junky and concerned that I needed to get on IVs before vacation in June, so I moved up clinic to today. I was wheezy, but was hoping it was due to being an off month for my wonder aerosol. I started back on it yesterday and have had 4 doses so far – the wheezing has stopped.

Here is where it gets amazing: my PFTs were better than they have been for quite a while. Aside from results when I was on a study, it was the best since 2008. Here’s what is going on:

Date Weight FVC FVC % FEV1 FEV1 %
2/19/10 114.4 2.1 49% 0.98 27%
3/19/10 119.1 2.24 52% 1.24 34%
5/14/10 116.6 2.49 58% 1.32 36%

I got to see the head doctor today, which only happens about once per year, so that was a treat. He didn’t rush out either, because he chewed the fat about my graduation and work, and then moved on to talking about re-doing his medical site and forum for patients. I think it will move quickly, so I’ll be posting those as completed projects when they’re done.

This Saturday is the Tampa Great Strides walk, so I’ll be seeing my coordinator 3 times this week, since she’s on my walk team, too.

So the moral of the story is this: Beautiful’s ability to predict my health not only includes my being sick, but my wellness, also. If you ever want to know how I really am, ask her, not me. I clearly don’t have a clue.
