gotta do it!

Mar 31, 2008 - 0 comments

I called my doctor last week after thinking about my situation......  Maybe I had a slight case of denial???  It's difficult to deal with having to buy maternity jeans when I've never had a baby.  I was going through a lot of that "why me" stuff.  But I went in to see my primary care doctor, who very calmly answers all my spastic questions...huh, I must not be the first person to go through this huh?
He ordered a complete blood panel, CBC, PT/INR, ABC and DEF's and all that other stuff..  ALT. the usual...check creatine, albumin, the whole works.....
He said I wasn't anemic (yey!), could stop taking the iron, uck....very constipating.  My morning BM's are Big Moments in my daily routine....my dad was the same way when he was alive...
So...I have to go see a pulmonary doctor on April 7...then the big cheese at UW-Madison on May 7.
Just need to stay away from anyone who sneezes, coughs, and little kids (germ factories)....
