JUST NOT FEELING UP TO PAR
Wednesday, February 24, 2021
I know I don't write much about not feeling well. I'd rather be positive. and encourage others. Well, truth be told, my asthma has been acting up for the past two weeks now and I am on steroids once again. I get very short of breath and my oxygen level goes too low. I went to the Dr.s on Monday because I wasn't much better starting the steroids on Friday, so I received an injection of steroids. I am now coming back down slowly but they leave me feeling shaky inside. I also am left with little energy. This is the third flare up since October, so I have a re-evaluation appointment with my pulmonologist on March 8 to see where my COPD is now...if the status has changed at all or not. It's been over two years since I've been evaluated. COPD means chronic obstructive pulmonary disease. Asthma and emphysema and other lung diseases are linked under one name now..COPD.
Even with all this, I am able to keep playing all these years. I was diagnosed when I was 21. It's very rare to have my breathing problem interfere with my playing. I give God all the praise for this. Doing my weekly concerts are such a joy and such a passion for me, but as I've said before, it's not about me. It's doing God's work and bringing joy to all of you through my music. I'm grateful I have concerts recorded through March 13th. (A St. Patrick's Day special)
Well, not sure why I told you all this, but I did. I will soon be back to my "normal" self..whatever that is!
