Log of my health issues


Damn Blogger!

I had post all written, silly me didn't copy it first in case Blogger got hungry. Grrr. Here's the poop:

Surgery on 10/20 to remove my ovaries. Pre-op and another ultrasound next Friday. Slight/slim chance the cysts are shrinking, if so, no surgery... but we're not banking on it. We're hoping the surgery can be done lapro, but there may be complications with additional endromitriosis scarring, so they may have to do the lovely 10 inch incision again, as they did last year.

Protime results. Depsite being on 7.5 MG coumadin every day this week, it barly went up at all. 12.4/1.0 INR last week, and 13.7/1.1 INR today. The INR should be between 2 and 3. I'm on 15mg for 3 days, then back to the 7.5 and have it rechecked and go from there.

At least two things are going relatively well. Not much RA pain (outside of the normal) and the UC is doing fine.



I was home sick for 3 days... I thought I was on the mend. Feeling like poo, and the antibiotic was helping the bronchitis and sinus infection but was causing other problems. I was so tired I could barely move. My cough is so much better, no longer "barky" and my sinuses are feeling clearer and the headache is pretty much gone.

I'm back to work today though! YAY. Oh wait... why again am I happy about that? ;-)


On the Mend

My bronchitis is much better, as well as my sinus infection. Rest, relaxation, and med have helped a lot.

RA is giving me fits today, but I think I need to move around some. UC is OK so far, but I'm sure trouble is brewing since I was really naughty and ate a salad last night.
