Met with the medical team this morning. Labs have shown that my parathyroid is still high, so I will be seeing an Endocrinologist to further evaluate. A Cat Scan of my lungs was done last night which showed some infiltrates, definite changes that were not present in a previous CT from 2015. It could be pneumonia but because I don’t have the usual symptoms of pneumonia like, fever, chills, cough, etc, they are unsure. Pulmonary docs should be by soon and they are discussing doing a bronchoscopy today. That is where they put a camera down my throat to see what’s in there and take brushing/biopsies to test for infection.
I saw my pulmonary hypertension specialist as well, who is planning to do a heart cath tomorrow to get an accurate measure of what my pulmonary pressures are.
Things are moving along, I am glad that I made the decision to come here. I have a team of physicians trying to figure me out. I’m an enigma, a puzzle at this point due to my complicated medical history. I have faith they will get the pieces in place and I will be back to kicking ass!
Scott and I appreciate everyone’s thoughts, prayers, and love from all of you amazing friends and family! The donations to my GoFundMe have been a huge help this trip!
Peace and love, Drea
