Im doing ok now. I got pretty sick again from that cold I got doing the human flag. So much so I was in the ER not able to breath.. head shaky.. body just didn't want to let go of it and it took oral steriods and nebulizer to get me back to breathing. This is the first day I feel I can breath without struggling. I was at the ER yesterday at 5am after talking with the 24hr hotline nurse she approved me for the ER..All this after a visit to the Urgent care clinic the day before and the Doc earlier in the week.
so the oral steriod was the trick.
Why was I not given it sooner? Because Oral steriods are a no no with broken bones and fusions. It leads to osteoporosis and reduces bone productivity... Not good in our broken leg situations at all. But there was no other choice... I couldn't get the inhaled form deep enough in my lungs to reaped the benefits.
On my being absent due to your post.
forgiven. I had to step back and learn why I read it that way and why I felt as strongly as I did. Its my responsibility how I respond and I was so out of the norm for me how I was feeling. When that happens, I get quiet. Its how I process things and figure out where things are going.
But, with my health being on the downslide since I did that human flag has also played a major part. I just didn't have a lot of energy and actually sitting upright and breathing was getting harder.. so sitting and doing postings for any length of time became a struggle and I had to make choices..
Im thankfully on the mend and breathing easier today.. Thank you Lord !!! so Im sure once Im up to speed, Ill be back...
I just have to take care of me right now.....
Remember, you can't hurt anyone... ever... unless they let you.
If there was a nerve hit, then it was to be addressed and I want to thank you for helping me see it.
blessings to you and all the leggers.. .
breathing a lil easier in So Cal
