It's been a few weeks since I've updated and life got a little crazy busy for me. Unfortunately I think me being so busy and not making enough rest time for myself has resulted in my asthma acting up. The past few days I've had a dry cough, severe wheezing (to the point of where I can hear it, which typically doesn't happen) and my oxygen saturations are sitting in the low 80's when I am typically 90-92. We've started me on some Prednisone to see if that will help and I am taking SVN treatments every four hours. There is only a few weeks left of this semester and I really want to get to the end of it, since last Fall I had to withdraw around the same time due to health. Winter is always a tough time for me health wise, especially with asthma so I'm hoping that by getting some Prednisone and continuing my SVN treatments I will kick this in the butt before it gets worse. I don't have school tomorrow, so I'm hoping by staying home I'll be able to really get on top of it and take my treatments on a strict schedule and continue that over the weekend. I'll keep you guys posted on how it goes and if I'm making any progress.
My name is Becca and I am 23 years old. I was born with Tretralogy of Fallot, Pulmonary Atresia and Pulmonary Hypertension. Some day, I will need a heart-lung transplant.
I hope that with this blog I can help others know that they are not alone through whatever struggles they may face and I hope to inspire others to stand up and make a positive difference in this world.
