Went to the doctor this afternoon, suspecting a diagnosis of pneumonia due to inability to catch my breath. BP was nice and low, 65/105, vitals seemed fine. When I told him that I CANNOT BREATHE, he listened very attentively to my chest. My heart and lungs sound fine, no congestion in the lungs. I mentioned to him that after this last surgery, I never seemed to ‘bounce back’. Tada. Sounds like an embolism.
Going for a CT Scan tomorrow at noon to determine if it is an emboli as the doctor suspected. Meanwhile, with fear in his eyes, the doctor told me to go home and take it easy, “Don’t do anything!”
Ok, Doc. I’ll just sit here and try not to think about how serious this is, I mean, after all, I was widowed because of a fu**ing embolism!
