I was so winded during playgroup today, and worried about it, that I called my oncologist's office and reported it. They immediately told me to go check into the emergency room. Turned out to be a good move. I have a pulmonary embolism (blood clot) on the right side of my lung and pulmonary effusion (fluid buildup between the lung and the outer wall of my body) on both lungs. So they've admitted me to the hospital. They've got me on a heparin drip (a blood thinner) to address the clot, and tomorrow they'll apparently drain my lungs. Yuck. The fluid is something that sometimes omes back with cancer patients, so I've got that to look forward to. I'm still a little winded, and my heartrate has been so high (140s and 150s) that they gave me a shot of something to calm it down. It went down for a few minutes, but as soon as I got up and sat down at this computer (which is at the end of my bed), it started jumping up again. I think I'll go to bed.
I've cancelled the Cyberknife appointment for now. Please keep my in your prayers.
