So you would think that the week after being in the hospital would be filled with rest and a bit of charging up the bodies batteries. However that is not the case. Today's agenda: Call the port surgeon to let him know that not only did the claritin not work, I am not able to take it again. I have already accomplished this task, he was very kind and said it sounds like I am allergic to the vicryl sutures but he recommends that we leave them in as they should be all the way dissolved soon. I said I can live with that, I don't want to rock the boat and end up back in the ER. Next, I have my appointment with my pulmonologist. Hopefully he will have some tips on monitoring my diaphragm strength at home. Then I am off to the MG meeting to be on the patient panel, I am really excited about this. I just pray that I am strong enough to make it through.
Tomorrow I have physical therapy, we have been very conservative so far but it is do or die time as I cannot afford to have my leg/ankle muscles atrophy any further. Here's hoping to a good plan of action. Wednesday is my day of rest. Thursday the kids have back to back physicals and Friday I get my IVIG..bye, bye week.
I am feeling pretty good today. The weekend was rough. I take my mestinon every 2 hours now and at 1hr 45 minutes, like clockwork my eyes and legs would conk out on me. Today has been better though so I am hoping I am on the mend. I will keep you posted.
