Got my early morning alarm call for blood gases today, I tried the "if I say I dont have a headache today can I get away without?" card but failed spectacularly. However it really wasnt that bad - the wonderful thing about it being so early is that I was still half asleep - and even better than that the results were good, my O2 level in my blood was normal (woo!) and my CO2 was a little high, but the doctor said for someone with my lung function that was a pretty good result. So muchly celebratingness all round then!
With things progressing well, and breathlessness periods decreasing I am setting my sights firmly on discharge on monday, and then this relentless blogging will slow a little as I shall have no daily medical notes to add!
