    Diagnosed

    Oh No

    Still feel as though it is not real. Hard to believe the changes in my life that have taken place.

    Hospitalization

    Other Care

    Had blockage in heart. Had to have stent put in. Have to wait a month on blood thinners. Than have to be off the blood thinner a week before the surgery can be done.

    In rehab center. Dealing with losing 11 days I was not breathing on my own and was in a drug induced coma. Problems walking and with balance.

    Other Care

    Pretty shocking to go in Sept 24 for surgery and not wake up until October 7. Not knowing what all went on and knowing family from out of state came in to see me and I didn't know they were there. The constant fear of not being able to breathe.

    Something new on most recent scan.

    Oh No

    Was told and shown yesterday something new on my CT scan. Having bronchoscopy this coming Wednesday morning. I know it may not be the cancer back but still fills me with dread. And truthfully, right now, I'm not in the mood to have a positive attitude about it.
