Concerned

Far Guy is having a real hard time breathing.  He is very short of breath and wheezing.  I insisted he go to Urgent Care after his weekly infusion... luckily he got to see his own Doctor...not a specialist  just his primary care doctor.

He began another round of steroids. The Doctor is not sure if he is getting a bacterial infection, a virus or has allergies.  He had a Kenalog Injection last Monday and it helped for a few days.   Thursday morning he woke up short of breath and it continued to get worse throughout the morning.

His Port is no longer safe to use for his weekly infusions.  It leaks and possibly has a kink...an appointment is being made at a far away hospital for a new port.

If it isn't one thing it is another.  It might be a bit rocky until the steroids kick in.

  13. I'm so sorry to hear this, Connie. I will keep your husband (and you!) in my prayers. My youngest daughter told me about an article she read online a few days ago that stated there are more people having allergy issues this spring than at any other time in our history. The reason she told me was.... I am having allergy issues for the first time in my life, believe it or not. I have never before had any type of sinus issues with spring but boy, I sure am having it this year. My lungs are tight, my sinuses feel "full" and are draining, I have headaches, it's crazy!! So I'm wondering if this has triggered Far Guy's problems too. Only time will tell. Take good care. Love, Andrea xoxo

  18. Oh no! I hope the steroids help until he can get a new port set up. I know being in my thoughts and prayers may sound trite, but it's true. Much love! :)

  19. I am so very sorry to hear this. Far Guy has definitely had more than his fair share of health "stuff'. I will be keeping you both in my prayers. I know how hard this is on you too. Worrying takes it's own toll. Much love to both of you.
    Blessings,

  29. The spring weather is going to keep things flying in the air. I hope it warms up for you up there and he can get away from that cold dry air.

  31. I got a day behind reading blogs and I’m so sorry to see this happened. I imagine the far away hospital is in the Cities. No fun. Sending you both a big hug.

  32. Oh, no! I hope the meds kick in soon, the infection stays far away...but most importantly, that you get good medical care and fast attention to take care of that port. You'll be in my prayers for sure!

  33. Oh, I am so sorry to hear that you are having all these issues with Far Guy's health.....not fun for him or you. To not be able to get a good breath is the worst I could imagine. I will pray for him to heal and be able to breathe freely and for his port to get 'fixed'.
