Hello…Happy May to you….Today I am going to tell you about Pulmonary Fibrosis and why I have it and what it has done to me…
Pulmonary Fibrosis is a progressive lung disease that occurs when lung tissue becomes damaged and scarred deep in the lungs. This scarring is called Fibrosis.
When the scarring forms, the tissue becomes stiff and thicker..This makes it harder for oxygen to get into the blood stream..Once the lung tissue becomes scarred THE DAMAGE CANNOT BE REVERSED.
There is NO CURE . Life expectancy is three to five years. A person with Pulmonary Fibrosis eventually may be short of breath even at rest. Pulmonary Fibrosis is considered a FATAL disease.
Well……that’s not much fun is it? Now you know why I named this The Deadly Wreath. I don’t want any pity or sadness only happy thoughts and prayers. When I got this, I was hit full force and started to wear oxygen immediately and will till my last breath…
Now…”Let me count the ways this oxygen drives me crazy”
I have about 50ft of hose attached to my face (actually in my nose) I can move around pretty good with it until I am walking down the hall and Bradley decides to sit on it and I come to an immediate stop with it about choking me. I don’t know why he loves to sit right in the middle of it…I have enough trouble trying to keep from getting it stuck on everything myself….
Now, the next thing I want to address is this 3 to 5 year nonsense. When I lived in my house I had two neighbor ladies that were 85 and active…so, that was my goal to live to be 85. I know my physical condition is getting worse by the day, BUT…it is not my decision when I die…This is up to the Lord…who knows what He may still have in store for me.
I am going to stop here and rest….I have so much more I want to talk to you about. Are you getting tired hearing from me? Hope not..Blessings to all of you. .
