Exercise is going okay now. My blood pressure is staying in the normal range and I walked down today instead of using a wheelchair, so there's definitely been progress made. I'm still pretty far from my baseline exercise tolerance, but for everything I've been going through these last couple of months, I think that's okay. I'll get there...it's just taking longer than usual this time.
Dr. Hornick wants me to do PFT's tomorrow, so I should have a number to give you by tomorrow night. There's some other numbers that aren't as good as last time. I was really excited about my Hemoglobin A1C test last time I was in (it was 7.2) but this time it was 8.2. My body went through so much during the kidney stone stuff and my blood sugars took a backseat during all of that. I'm working on that and it seems that my sugars are already getting under much better control. I'm incredibly thankful it's happened as quickly as it has.
Dr. Hornick is at a conference or something (can't remember what he said for sure) through the weekend so Dr. Stoltz is taking over for him. I really like Dr. Stoltz and since most everything has stabilized I'm completely comfortable with Dr. Hornick not being here.
There's not a whole lot else happening right now. Since I've still been so tired most of my day is spent lying down or asleep...not too exciting. I'm not nauseous anymore so I'm going to ask Dr. Stoltz if we can start my iron again in the hopes that I'll get some energy back and not sleep quite so much. Then maybe I'll have more to blog about :)
