I ended up in the ER Sunday night and back Monday night. Had some sort of virus, mountain cedar allergies acting up and ended up back in ER Monday night after my inhaler and a neb treatment at home didn't work. I've been busy working extra required hours at work, my wife is ten weeks pregnant(YAY!) and been trying to help out loads around the house. I think between the extra hours at work (people sick all the time there as well but they have to be there, as I was required), wearing myself thin, it all just caught up to me. *Things were/are still looking up as Dulera and XOlair were approved and started. *
I had a bad asthma attack that wouldn't go away (status asmaticus), systemic inflammatory response syndrome*Not wntirely sure what hta is, and acute respiratory failure with hypoxia. It's never been this bad before. But they say sometimes things get worse before they get better and hopeful that's what this is as before the virus I was feeling alright and before the extra hours at work…hadn't needed to use my rescue much at all. Was advised to put a leave of absence in at work.
Doctor said she was amazed at my recovery and said I need to slow down and take it easy for awhile. Was advised by doctors and respiratory therapists maybe San Antonio isn't the best place for me to live. Kind of hard to just pick up and move however. It's all a little scary but some great stuff happening as well. Feel MUCH better, just have no energy reserves left. I will keep you all updated and read up on some of this stuff here. Catch up on the site with my down time. I wish everyone the best and look forward to catching up on stuff. Sorry for my absence from here, been so exhausted just doing the day to day stuff.
