Under-the-weather

I've been feeling a little under the weather lately, and feel like I'm getting worse and not better! UGH!!! No time to be sick! So I called my transplant coordinator and are going to clinic in the morning. I have a scheduled appointment next Wednesday and REALLY REALLY wanted to hold out until then, but my coordinator really wants me to come. I'm still debating...but I guess I will go! I'm just not looking forward to getting up at 5:30 AM!

I've lost about 6-7lbs, which is a little more weight than I can afford to lose...that puts me at about 90-91 pounds. I've also had a low-grade fever a couple of days, chest pain, sob, major fatigue, and major wheezing. I'm praying I can escape clinic with some oral abx!

I have a friend coming in from Texas and she is spending the night with me tomorrow and Thursday. We are going to the lake on Thursday, providing the weather is good! So I am excited about this and really hope I feel great!

I have class tomorrow night too...and this is the 1st night for our anatomy lab class...so i'm definitely curious, but not looking forward to more studying :) My lecture and lab class last from 5:30pm-9:50pm (long night)! I've got to get organized and start studying EACH night for this class, or come test night, I'm going to be in deep trouble!

ALSO...I start back work on Friday...yippee!!

I have some exciting news to share with you, in which I will post about later this week!

Also, for those of you following my updates with Emily, she was scheduled to get a trach put in today. She has kind of taken a backward turn, so we are praying she will turn around in the POSITIVE direction quickly!

Anatomy is KILLING me! So much info it is ridiculous ... it is a 7 hour class for us! I even blogged about it tonight! The fumes really, really hurt my eyes. Hope it doesn't bother you as much! :) Good luck!

Morn'n! I know you are prolly already up and at clinic, but I hope you escape with some oral abx which do the trick. Sorry you've been feeling down. Be careful around school, it already looks like the flu is going to be VERY bad this year. Have you heard anything about getting your flu shot / shots? Hope the weather cooperates and you have fun at the lake. Laters!
