My caringbridge post just now:

Dec 20, 2013 11:20 AM
So... At united hospital as they run tests to find the cause of my shortness of breath. Finding fluid build up where there should be none (pericardium, which has that hole cut in it for draining), and fluid where there doesn't seem to been enough to be causing so much distress, but it is tough to tell, so on to more tests. I managed to get in a much needed nap, though.

Crossing fingers that this isn't an overnight stay!!

Dang, you have been going in so often they probably have your room reserved for you.

At least you can escape re;entles Christmas music, so there is always that.

Feel better, kid.

Red, i surely join everyone in wishing you improved health, especially during Christmas.....I just wanted to know if you have been prescribed any inhalers?....I have COPD and shortness of breath from a lifetime of menthol cigarettes and Symbicort is the first inhaler i have had, that i can really feel a difference....

Nope. And when they do, they are disabled so they won't work, including bathrooms.

I hope you don't have to stay and that you and Nick get your night. Sex is suppose to be very good for the immune system, you know!

Because I am dealing with low sodium levels, I did bring in all nods to snack on, so I went ahead. The lung draining is something you're awake for, I've had it done after meals.

Blood clot in my lower right lung. That's the main reason they want to keep me over night. Said it can't move anywhere, but are concerned with what may be behind it.

I wonder if I'm doing a good enough job of faking it for the troll.

BTW, how do you "know" I'm Ferrerman? Am I the only one on Topix NOT omniscient? Just wondering.
looks like you have your toothless boyfriend fooled.

You're doing an excellent job for the troll. It's almost like you have cancer or something horrible.

Glad to see you are able to post here again. It was getting a bit boring while you were gone. Hope you are well enough to go home tonight. And regardless where Topix says I am posting from, I am in sunny Florida (82 degrees right now) in Tonka's neck of the woods.

Topix doesn't assign ISP's. It still could be a proxy. Good research on the weather in South Florida though...

My bunco group's Christmas party is tonight. I look forward to it all year. Ugly sweaters, white elephant, lots of eating and drinking. I'm bringing that thing you may have seen on FB or Pinterest recently--Rum Chata/Andes Mint crock pot hot chocolate. And I'm making more low carb marzipan.

SIL and her fiancé will be here tomorrow through Christmas morning.*sigh*. Her main objective will be packing up her room. I'm getting my guest room back, dammit.

Or it could be that I usually post from work and the company I work for integrated the phone and local servers in all of the offices so they are run off of the main server in California.

I get the Florida weather by looking out my window. How's the view from your mom's basement?
