not so much fun

well, no place fun.

In UM Hospital for 5 days. I came home from TC, and on Monday I called my doctor to describe how short of breath I'd been, she sent me to the ER.

I had a plerual effusion (fluid between the lung and chest wall. They removed a full litre of fluid and my lung reinflated (it hadn't collapsed, really) and kept me till they did all the poking and proding they felt like doing.

I have had some vision changes in my right eye, and they assesed that by making sure I don't have any brain tumors (thankfully), but there is fluid beneath my retina which will be further evaluated. It could be the cancer. I will see some big-shot retina specialist in a couple weeks.

My oxygen level when I got there was low, and I've been on oxygen since, even now. Fun times, let me tell you.

No telling if and when the fluid will come back... but it probably will.

Can you tell I'm not too happy about these latest events?

I'll keep you posted.

Gee, I'm sorry to hear of your troubles. I miss you, I hear you're at Jon and Jen's. You're in my prayers. I hope to talk to you soon, best wishes, Marsha.
