New medication

Today Dr. K prescribed Atenolol to control the tachycardia and palpitations.  I hope it helps because it is uncomfortable to feel like your heart is about to leap out of your chest.  Only time will tell...  I also decided that since Don is going to have surgery next Tuesday, that I would have chemo this week and take next week off.  Maybe my counts will improve during that week.  The chest X-ray was normal, no fluid in the lungs, so that's a relief.  It is probably just allergies.

Inhaler

Dr. K heard wheezing in the bases of my lungs and prescribed an inhaler.  I chose to take Foradil because I have used it before and know that it works for me.  I can't use Xopenex because it leaves a nasty taste in my mouth and I want to gag.  I hope the wheezing goes away quickly.  I had to go get a chest X-ray to make sure that nothing was going on in there.  Guess I will know on Monday when I go in for  fluids.
